My wife and I stayed two nights in a 2nd floor standard twin room during May. Check in was quick and easy. Although our room faced Butler Street, traffic noise was not an issue. The rooms are quite spacious and clean. The bed was very comfortable (although the castors meant it moved quite easily if you leaned against it). The room included a microwave. A plus is that Waters Edge still offers complementary biscuits with the tea and coffee - a feature which seems to be getting a lot rarer. One thing for guests to note is that the bathroom has dispensers rather than individual toiletries. My wife was particularly taken with the art work in the corridors.
We chose the hot breakfast option which at $25 for 2 people was excellent value and in addition to a wide range of cereals on both days included sausages, scrambled egg, bacon, tomato, hash brown and mushrooms. The restaurant offers a great view over the water.
There is wireless internet available - the first hour is free and then charges apply.
Waters Edge is located on the fringe of the Port Macquarie CBD and is within easy walking distance of shops and attractions. Parking is at the front of the motel and is not undercover - our only minor quibble is that when we arrived it was raining quite heavily and as the entranceway is not covered we ended up quite wet getting out of the car and checking in. The car-park is fairly "tight" for cars with an average turning circle.
We consider our rate of $119 represented good value, and we would be very happy to stay again. Guests should note that there is a 2% surcharge for credit cards, and I have to commend the check-in staff for how clearly they stated this "up front" when checking in.
