My husband and I had been camping around the byron bay area and decided to spoil ourselves on the way home. We called from the road and were offered an upgrade to a one bedroom apartment for the same price as a standard. The apartment was beautiful, I wish we had stayed for the week!! We will be back!

We have just stayed for five nights in a 1 bedroom ocean view spa, very spacious, apartment and we thoroughly recommend this accommodation. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and the apartment block had all the amenities we required. Great location close to the beach, shops, numerous restaurants and cafes including The Corner Cafe downstairs . We now understand why Macquarie Waters is ranked as the number one place to stay in Port Macquarie.
We will be back.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the 5th floor to appreciate the view

Lovely modern hotel. Only had 1 night here and wish we could have stayed longer, would definitely return if in the area again. Spacious well equipped room, with large comfortable bed, free wifi and good view from balcony. Port Macquarie is lovely, a beautiful beach with board walks.

I haven't had a holiday in years, so having such great accommodation for our weekend getaway was unbelievable. After putting in a lot of research into where we should stay, I'm happy to say that Macquarie Waters is ranked as the number one place to stay in Port Macquarie with very good reason.

The complex was lovely and we made great use of the pool and rooftop deck. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the location was great - an easy walk to the beach, shops and restaurants. Our two bedroom apartment was comfortable with everything we needed, including a beautiful view while we ate dinner on the balcony.

Overall Macquarie Waters offers everything I wanted from a weekend getaway, and I'll be recommending it to everyone I know.

We have just stayed for three nights in a 1 bedroom spa apartment and would highly recommend this accommodation to others. Everything was great - welcoming, friendly service; great location; modern, comfortable well equipped unit; free wifi; no hassle extension of departure time; nice outlook from our level 3 balcony, good food and service at the co-located restaurant. Overall, great value and will definitely be returning!

A friend and I stayed in the 1 bedroom apartment at the start of February for 2 nights.
The room was gorgeous! The only faults we could find was the layout and colour of the lounge room furniture, the taps that could only turn on as high-pressure, and the lack of room service.
The room was very clean and spacious. The kitchen was modern and stocked with anything you would need to cook a meal. There could have been more tea/coffee/biscuits/milk provided as there was only 1 biscuit and only enough milk for 2 cups of tea/coffee.
We had 2 balconies and a view of the water in 2 directions. The room was incredibly stuffy without the doors open or aircon on. There were no windows to open and no screen door so could not leave the doors open to let air in without also letting in the creepy crawlies.
The bathroom was a great size with good lighting to do make-up (a rare-find in most hotels!).
The bed and bedding were so comfortable! (also a rare find!)
The spa on level 1 isn't very practical as the jets are too powerful - causing water to bubble up higher than your head and splashing water in your face. After 3 minutes of sitting in there we had to get out. We decided to try out the spa on the roof. It's a bit dated and plain up there.. A massive concrete balcony with an old tattered swing, a BBQ and a spa in the corner. This spa was a little more comfortable except not hot enough. (but maybe it was just a cold day)
All up - this Hotel is definitely worth the money. For the little details it lacks - it makes up for in every other area.

If I ever venture up to Port Macquarie again - I will definitely be staying at the Macquarie Waters Hotel again.
