A brilliant place to stay with wonderful owner/operators who are extremely helpful. The free use of kayaks, row boats and all sorts of water related toys. Great views & walks as well as pub & restaurants close by. Well appointed clean units with thoughtfully equipped kitchens, books, mags & free DVDs. Stayed an extra night & we will definately return.

I stayed here for 2 nights with my husband and 2 adult children and their partners. We had 2 x 2 bedroom units, but basically lived in the one except for sleeping. What a great find. We all loved it. So handy to everything and the water directly opposite us was great for water activities. All the equipment you would... More

I'm a repeat customer and booked a week prior. As I've been ill for sometime I expressed concern about our apartment being near a crying new born baby.

We sometimes have a situation arise that is best resolved by all the parties walking away. Unfortunately, this was our only such case in over 15 years! Susan, her husband and three companions had stayed with us for one night previously in April 2014 and they were seemingly happy enough to re-book to come back for another night in March... More

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

Thank you, Deb. We are truly grateful for your positive review. We know the stairs can be a problem for some people, but - as you have so clearly pointed out - you do get the best panoramic views of the river and ocean on the higher floors. Interestingly, we have had guests in their eighties and even nineties specifically... 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.
