A group of 15 golfing ladies thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay at Macquarie Inn. The accommodation was 1st class, clean and roomy, the beds comfortable and the room well stocked with coffee and tea facilities. Staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. We all enjoyed a lovely meal both nights in the club's restaurant. We will definitely be back.

We stayed in a family room for my girlfriends wedding. The room was adequate in size for the 5 of us and we had enough room for a makeup artist and hairdresser to do their thing with us all in there too.
