“Nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2011

We have stayed there on two occasions now, the room was a one bed apartment very spacious and comfortable. It had two balconies with views. Staff friendly, handy to everything and price was good for what you got.

I stay at the Macquarie Waters Hotel everytime I visit Port Macquarie. This Hotel offers true 4 star accomodation. The apartments are modern & spacious with all the mod cons such as LCD screen, DVD, MP3 radio, self contained Kitchen. Its situated right in the heart of Port Macquarie with great views over the Hastings River. It also has an award winning restaurant downstairs - The Corner Cafe for convenience. The staff are very friendly & the service is exceptional. A must stay for business people & families seeking a reliable & luxurious escape at a very reasonable cost.

Room Tip: The east facing rooms on Level 3 or 4 are best!

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Macquarie Waters Hotel. We enjoyed our stay very much. The staff, including Julie and Sarah, were extremely friendly and helpful. The Macquarie Waters is fantastic value for the price. The location is central; within easy walking distance to the river, the beach, the shopping centre, tourist attractions (inc the very interesting little Museum in Clarence Street) and a good variety of restaurants. Our hotel room and bathroom were spacious and very clean. Most importantly our bed was comfortable and the bed linen fresh and crisp. The Corner restaurant provided a delicious breakfast. Thank you Macquarie Waters; we will be back!

Room Tip: We stayed on the 3rd floor which was very quiet

Thank you to all at the Macquarie Waters Boutique Hotel, what a great stay from start to finish. Fantastic location within walking distance to town, restaurants etc. We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment which was very spacious & modern. They also showed a movie on a big screen by the pool, some were in the spa whilst watching others were lazing on the lounges "Great Idea". Loved the Corner restaurant and the convenience of being able to order room service from there at no extra cost. I can be pretty fussy and I loved the place, would recommend this Hotel to you all.

Have just returned from our second visit (third already booked!) to Macquarie Waters Apartments. Both times we have stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment with my 2 daughters, son-in-law and granddaughter. Apartments are very spacious with everything you could want. We found the location perfect. The staff make everyone feel welcome and are only too happy to provide assistance when needed (including tracking down a doctor who was able to see my granddaughter on the morning of the Ironman race, which I suspect was the town's busiest day of the year!). Macquarie Waters is definitely the best option in Port Macquarie.

Ironman is the biggest day in Port Macquarie each year - we love the event, the athletes and their supporters. I'm delighted to hear that our staff were able to help you over the busy weekend. We look forward to your next visit!

We enjoyed our stay at Macquarie Waters. The rooms were of a high standard and very comfortable. The views, especially from the rooftop spa area, were exceptional. The pool and BBQ area looked great and we look forward to using them when we come back with children later in the year. The Corner Restaurant is one of the best in Port Macquarie; the food is superb and the fact they provide prompt room service just made our stay complete. Reception staff were friendly, courteous and attentive. We cannot recommend Macquarie Waters highly enough. We have holidayed in Port for almost 40 years and this was our best accommodation yet. We look forward to coming back again and again.

We love your review and the photos! The rooms with the best views are the ocean view apartments on Level 4 and 5 - however as you pointed out the rooftop on Level 6 has superb views that all guests can enjoy!
