“great location”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

We really do like Macquarie Waters. We are not really beachgoers so its location close to the town centre is ideal. The rooms are spacious, clean and modern-ish (perhaps just starting to age - for example water leaked from the shower recess onto the bathroom floor). The TV with Austar was good and the bed was comfortable. The staff are very good. My only disappointment was the 7am opening for the swimming pool, which resulted in enough noise to wake us up a couple of mornings - we stayed during school holidays so I guess we should expect this to happen.

Thank you for your great review and for choosing to stay at Macquarie Waters. We are so thrilled that you enjoyed your time in Port Macquarie. The pool does open at 7am and some mornings there are children ready to head straight in there for a swim, especially holidays! We look forward to your next visit!

My wife and I have stayed at this apartment complex on a number of accasions during the last 4 years. Each time we stay, the staff, from front desk to the cleaners are all very happy to help in any way they can.The rooms are all very neat and spacious, and reasonably priced.The best point about this apartment complex is once you park the car in a surcure parking area underneath the apartments is you can walk to all your shopping needs, or walk to the beach, or just stroll along the water front.(And fella's while the misses is shopping the pub is just a short walk away) Don't forget to try the brekkie at the corner resturant you won't be dissapointed.

We stopped at Port Macquarie and chose this one-bedroom apartment without prior booking and were thoroughly impressed. Reception is friendly and efficient. The apartment is very well furnished, spacious, clean and strategically located close to cafes, shops, entertainment venues and water. Reasonably priced and better than many around the area. Best surprise, we will come back.

We chose this hotel based on the positive reviews on Tripadvisor. We were very happy with the decision - this is a great place in a great location. Our one bedroom apartment was very comfortable with a nice bathroom and modern kitchen. It would be perfect for a longer stay in Port Macquarie. Beach, river and restaurants all close by. My only complaint would be that it was a bit noisy on the Saturday night, with some hoons belting up and down the street our apartment faced. This is just a minor complaint, and doesn't reflect on the hotel which we were very impressed with.

Thank you for your great review. At times we do experience street noise and this is a downside for being in such a central CBD location. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay in one of our 1 bedroom Apartments and hope to see you return soon for another visit to Port Macquarie!

We stayed here for just one night to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The rooms are so spacious and have all amenities. We had a one bedroom on level 5 (502) and the sunset was amazing.The kitchen had everything you need if you feel like cooking. And the bonus of a laundry was great.

We stayed here just for one night in a one bedroom apartment and couldn't have been happier with the property, location and staff. Disappointed we hadn't planned to stay longer on our road trip but would love to come back for a longer visit next time.

Good value for money compared to many other properties.

Thanks to all the staff for making our short stay enjoyable.

Room Tip: Ocean views are worth it.

Stayed here also based on others' TripAdvisor reviews and loved it. We rented two rooms for the night (one for our teen daughter and I, and one for my husband and our teen son). We wished we had been able to stay longer! The rooms were spacious, VERY CLEAN (my most important requirement), cozy, quiet (even for being street-side) and warm. Loved sitting on the balcony (overlooking the street) and listening to all the birds (thousands of lorikeets!). Took an early morning walk to the cemetery to watch the flying foxes come back to roost and were thrilled to not only see thousands of them but also a WILD koala there! It was a very enjoyable stay and we would definitely stay there in future.
