I see a lot of people give Marcel Towers 5 "Circles"..whatever that means. But it is not. It is quite dated, the furnishings are dated, and it is from "yesterday". However, of all the two and a half circle properties (and this is what it is), then Marcel Towers must be ”5 ticks". The two bedroom unit was clean, freshly...

Hi Errol. Thank you for your review. Sorry about the fan - unfortunately, most of our cleaners are quite short and, although Penny always insists that they be cleaned, sometimes one gets overlooked. Not much we can say, except apologise! Your comments about the stairs intrigue us however, as, although we do get comments about the lack of a lift,...

We stayed in a top level 2 bedroom apartment and loved our time at Marcel Towers. We had a lot of children running around, and after apologising to the owners about the noise they said, "Oh we don't mind, we like happy noise" which made us feel very welcome. The weather was incredible for us so we made good use...

Thank you so much for taking the time to post such a wonderful review. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and, yes, we do enjoy seeing (and hearing) our guests having a good time. We had four boys, so we fully understand your concern, but you and your children were great. Hope to see you...

Stayed here one night on my way back from Brisbane. Had stayed here before and knew what to expect. It is an older property, very clean and really well fitted out. We had a two bedroom unit and it was very comfortable. The beds were very nice, and we all had a good nights sleep. It is the view that...

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment on the top floor which afforded the most beautiful views. The apartment itself was spacious, clean and comfortable but the serene, peaceful setting is extra special. The tavern and an attached coffee shop/cafe is a short walk to the left and, to the right and again another short walk, is a wonderful place...

Very well appointed apartments, right on the waterfront with stunning views. Peaceful, fully self contained and tastefully decorated. All you need and I would come back again. Balcony views are stunning as you can sign outside to enjoy a coffee or breakfast, listen to Th e sea and bird life. Very pleasant!

Pleasant place to stay, nice position, waterfront to lake and ocean. We stayed on the top floor in a 2 bedroom apartment, everything you could need was supplied, spacious and comfortable, nice balcony, short walking distance to cafe's for lunch or breakfast, good pub for lunch down the road. No lift, the stairs were not a problem though.

I stayed in a massive one bedroom apartment with balcony and courtyard. The staff are so warm and friendly, and the view is out of this world - it really is stunning. Great amenities - the bedlinen is deluxe, I can't fault this place at all. Nambucca Heads is my new favourite holiday destination.
