Macquarie Waters Hotel & Apartments
Ranked #2 of 42 Hotels in Port Macquarie
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 1, 2013

High-quality accommodation right near the centre of town, so easy to walk eveywhere. The room was quite spacious, bathroom was well-appointed, nice large towels, quiet airconditioner (essential when the night-time temp is in the low 20s). Free wi-fi also worked well and there is a good cafe downstairs (the Corner Cafe) which we would have liked to try for dinner if we had not already been booked in elsewhere.

My husband and I recently stayed in one of the Macquarie Waters 1 bedroom apartments for our first wedding anniversary and had a fantastic time. The staff were friendly and helpful and we were pleasantly surprised with the size of our apartment. Was also great to have a self-contained kitchen with dishwasher and be able to do some of our own meals.

The apartment is located about half-way between the main town and the patrolled beaches. About 10 minutes walk in either direction which was perfect. They also offered complimentary secure underground parking which we used.

While we didn't use the pool (always seemed too busy with families/kids being school holidays), we loved the spa up on the rooftop with views across to the beach. The pools kids movie on Wed, Fri & Sat night looked like fun although you were able to hear the sound if you have a pool facing room. The movie didn't go too late and didn't bother us but may be annoying if you were wanting a quiet, early night.

Thanks Macquarie Waters - we will be back again for sure!

While the motel/apartment room is spacious, well appointed and has good furniture, and excellent facilities, this is all for nought if the bed is a let down. A good bed is a requisite for sleeping accommodation and this one sadly has tarnished the reputation of what appears o be a good motel. Having originally posted this on T A the manager has been in contact and advised the bed base has been changed. On that basis I have withdrawn the original review and related this establishment.

An excellent location right in the heart of Port's CBD which is also on the waters edge, walk everywhere, secure parking. Room was clean and spacious. The 'Corner Cafe' did very well. Food was great. Pool movies on Fri night was great for the kids. Definately return !!

Good location, secure underground parking and they kindly allowed us check in well before normal.
Rooms were modern, clean and quiet.
The 'corner' cafe does good food (although its a little slow to come out).
My only complaint would be the seating round the pool is pretty limited - 2 families took up all the loungers on the day we were there so we abandoned our pool visit.

Thank you for your great review. In March we will be adding more furniture to the Pool Area as it was a very popular place to be this school holiday period with the great weather and scorching heat we had! We look forward to your next stay at Macquarie Waters.
