“Great place to stay in Port Macquarie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

We chose this hotel based on the positive reviews on Tripadvisor. We were very happy with the decision - this is a great place in a great location. Our one bedroom apartment was very comfortable with a nice bathroom and modern kitchen. It would be perfect for a longer stay in Port Macquarie. Beach, river and restaurants all close by. My only complaint would be that it was a bit noisy on the Saturday night, with some hoons belting up and down the street our apartment faced. This is just a minor complaint, and doesn't reflect on the hotel which we were very impressed with.

Thank you for your great review. At times we do experience street noise and this is a downside for being in such a central CBD location. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay in one of our 1 bedroom Apartments and hope to see you return soon for another visit to Port Macquarie!

We stayed here for just one night to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The rooms are so spacious and have all amenities. We had a one bedroom on level 5 (502) and the sunset was amazing.The kitchen had everything you need if you feel like cooking. And the bonus of a laundry was great.

We stayed here just for one night in a one bedroom apartment and couldn't have been happier with the property, location and staff. Disappointed we hadn't planned to stay longer on our road trip but would love to come back for a longer visit next time.

Good value for money compared to many other properties.

Thanks to all the staff for making our short stay enjoyable.

Room Tip: Ocean views are worth it.

Stayed here also based on others' TripAdvisor reviews and loved it. We rented two rooms for the night (one for our teen daughter and I, and one for my husband and our teen son). We wished we had been able to stay longer! The rooms were spacious, VERY CLEAN (my most important requirement), cozy, quiet (even for being street-side) and warm. Loved sitting on the balcony (overlooking the street) and listening to all the birds (thousands of lorikeets!). Took an early morning walk to the cemetery to watch the flying foxes come back to roost and were thrilled to not only see thousands of them but also a WILD koala there! It was a very enjoyable stay and we would definitely stay there in future.

Went to Macquarie Waters based on trip Advisor reviews, and glad we did.
the hotel staff, the room all met our expectations and would definitely stay here again.
although we did not pay the extra for a view, we found the location and outlook v pleasant.
The reception staff were v helpful and friendly. Well done, we hope to be back!

Room Tip: Our room was on Munster St, early morning garbos a little noisy.

Stayed in 2 bedroom apartments all the way from cairns to Melbourne and this was my favourite. Loved both the hotel and Port Macquarie itself . Lovely modern apartments , great value for money in a perfect location. Wished i had more time than just the 2 Nights. Couldn't ask for better.

We stayed for one night on a return road trip from The Gold Coast to Sydney. Hadn't planned to stop in Port Macquarie so booked this at the last minute based on Trip Advisor reviews. Very glad that we did - this place is so good that we're now considering Port Macquarie as a future holiday destination!
We stayed in a one bed apartment and were extremely impressed with the presentation and cleanliness. It had absolutely everything that we needed and is in a fantastic location. The icing on the cake was the fabulous restaurant downstairs (The Corner Restaurant). As we were travelling with our 4 month old daughter, being able to order a quality meal as room service was a huge bonus and we were extremely impressed with the standard of food for both dinner and breakfast.
Cannot recommend this place highly enough for anyone travelling to Port Macquarie.
