“Excellent lpace to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

We have recently come home from 2 weeks in a one bedroom spa apartment at Macquarie Waters Hotel. this has been our third time staying at ths hotel, so you will see we think it is the best place to stay in Port Macquarie. The accommodation is great with everything you would need for your perfect holiday. The staff are really welcoming and friendly. The Corner Restraurant is ideal for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Thanks Macquarie Waters we will see you next February.

The apartments were very big with generous balconies, well equipped and clean. The pool is fairly kid friendly. The apartments are conveniently located for Port Macquarie town and the main Town Beach.

Great location, good value and would happily stay there again.

My husband and I had been camping around the byron bay area and decided to spoil ourselves on the way home. We called from the road and were offered an upgrade to a one bedroom apartment for the same price as a standard. The apartment was beautiful, I wish we had stayed for the week!! We will be back!

We have just stayed for five nights in a 1 bedroom ocean view spa, very spacious, apartment and we thoroughly recommend this accommodation. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and the apartment block had all the amenities we required. Great location close to the beach, shops, numerous restaurants and cafes including The Corner Cafe downstairs . We now understand why Macquarie Waters is ranked as the number one place to stay in Port Macquarie.
We will be back.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the 5th floor to appreciate the view

Lovely modern hotel. Only had 1 night here and wish we could have stayed longer, would definitely return if in the area again. Spacious well equipped room, with large comfortable bed, free wifi and good view from balcony. Port Macquarie is lovely, a beautiful beach with board walks.

I haven't had a holiday in years, so having such great accommodation for our weekend getaway was unbelievable. After putting in a lot of research into where we should stay, I'm happy to say that Macquarie Waters is ranked as the number one place to stay in Port Macquarie with very good reason.

The complex was lovely and we made great use of the pool and rooftop deck. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the location was great - an easy walk to the beach, shops and restaurants. Our two bedroom apartment was comfortable with everything we needed, including a beautiful view while we ate dinner on the balcony.

Overall Macquarie Waters offers everything I wanted from a weekend getaway, and I'll be recommending it to everyone I know.

We have just stayed for three nights in a 1 bedroom spa apartment and would highly recommend this accommodation to others. Everything was great - welcoming, friendly service; great location; modern, comfortable well equipped unit; free wifi; no hassle extension of departure time; nice outlook from our level 3 balcony, good food and service at the co-located restaurant. Overall, great value and will definitely be returning!
