I stayed at this property overnight recently with a friend whilst returning from the Port Stephens area. I initially reserved the room through www.booking.com and only found out when I was checking on the reservation a few days before our arrival that the unit I booked was on the third floor of a walk-up! I initially tried to change this,... More

The rooms were great, clean and the view awesome. I would definitely recommend this place to anybody. Great for families. My only gripe really was when we walked in the smell in the room was very overpowering (a urine smell) it just went through our luggage. Overall though you wouldn't go past Marcel Towers.

Thank you for taking the time and effort to post such an overall positive review, Skye. Penny and I were away when you stayed, but your comments regarding a possible urine smell led us to speak to Daniell and we have isolated the apparent source of the odour to a new disinfectant that we tried. The room has new carpets... More

Marcel towers is our favourite place to stay. It's always clean and the people are always friendly. Very relaxing as it's right across from the water and a close walk to the Rsl or the tavern. Very consistent and very happy with my stay.

Really peaceful relaxed place to stop over on way between Brisbane and Sydney. People running the joint are friendly and I was great fun for their accomodation of our extra vehicles and trailer when I asked at booking. Very modest accomodation but has everything you need and it's clean. It is also in a rather nice spot and has lovely... More

Stayed here twice recently. Very clean & relaxing. Spectacular views & no hassles. Great hot shower, comfy clean beds & lots of facilities. Close to great restaurants, if you can pull yourself off the verandah & away from the view. Hosts are very friendly & nothing is too much trouble.
