“Space to stretch and relax”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

A one night stop-over en route driving south from the Gold Coast. Host Penny was very helpful. Plenty of room in the one bedroom apartment overlooking the river meant we could sit and enjoy a bit of quiet space after driving all day. Comfy bed. Kitchen well equipped, but we walked along the river to the hotel and enjoyed a pub dinner. Will make it a regular stop en route now we have found it.
You MUST walk along the V wall and read the wonderful painted notices - tributes to families holidaying there year after year, to single visits from all over the world, to family members past, to friends enjoying events - all life is here.

We stopped over here on the way to the Gold Coast and further up the coast onto Noosa on 10th January. The Marcel Towers is located in a perfect position on the water front with great views.
The units are equipped with all you needed for a short of long stay and the balcony was lovely, the beds were comfy and the kitchen well equipped. Penny greeted us when we arrived and was very helpful in providing information on restaurants and places to eat. In the morning before we set off we had a lovely walk along the boardwalk and riverside. All in all a great place, would recommend to friends and family.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the river.

Stayed for four nights in January in a one bedroom unit. A fabulous location across from the river with a lovely and safe little beach for the kids to play on. The bed was comfy, lots of room in the apartment. Lots of games and DVDs available to borrow.

My only slight niggles were that the dishes in the cupboard weren't clean and no batteries for the air con or DVD player, minor things. I would definitely stay here again, lovely view, nice and quiet, and location was superb, no need for the car could walk wherever we wanted. A great spot for a getaway!!

On a trip from Brisbane to Sydney this is the ideal stopover, I arrived Christmas day and stayed for 2 nights in the one bedroom unit 9, beautiful location, great walks along the waterfront, lovely view from the balcony, and close to many beaches. Penny is fantastic, nothing too much trouble, and they were very hospitable to me as I was travelling alone, I really appreciate that.
On my return trip from Sydney to Brisbane I stayed for one night in a two bedroom unit, no 2, this is right on the front, very spacious and great views.
This property is not luxurious, its an older building, but it is very clean, with a great location and very friendly and helpful owners, tis quiet and comfrotable and somewhere you can totally relax, without any pretentions. I loved it and will be staying there whenever I do the drive to Sydney in the future.

Room Tip: I stayed in units 9 and 2, they were both great.

We stopped for 3 nights, but would have loved to stay longer. We met Penny when we arrived and was given a choice of two available rooms. We took the one on the top (is only 3 floors), and when we looked out from the balcony we just said wow, what a view across the river/sea. It was a very comfortable self contained appartment, with a full kithchen,and bathroom. The location is wonderful, just over the road to the beach, and only a short pleasant walk to the town.
Penny could not do enougth for us, even getting her father-in-law to give us a lift to the rail station when we left
If you are visiting Australia and need a place to relax Marcel Towers Nambucca is the place. What you see on the net, you get. Great.

Room Tip: All rooms have wonderful views, we had no 8 it was great .

Units are spacious, comfortable and equipped with everything needed for a 'home from home' stay . However with the river at the door (literally) and every amenity minutes walk or drive it is the ideal spot for a short break or longer holiday .As owners are on site and happy to be contacted any problems or queries can be dealt with quickly and cheerfully. Thoughtful extras like books, games, videos and DVD's are in a bookcase on the landing adjacent to the doors to units on each floor and this adds an extra dimension with an eclectic mix of temptation available even if you did bring your own!

Room Tip: There are no lifts so if walking is a problem ask for a lower floor.

It is so lovely to have such a positive review, thankyou. We always strive to make every guest feel at home and that if there is any problem at all, we would prefer to fix it straight away. We also think that the views are fabulous and since we are so close to restaurants and places to have coffee, it is the perfect place to stay.

Although we arrived a little late, we were welcomed and assisted with parking our trailer and getting set up. Not only that but while taking my dog out for a toilet stop I was given great advice for a morning walk which turned out to be one of the best experiences I've shared with my puppy. The room was fantastic; spacious, clean and contained everything needed for a lovely overnight stay.

I have recommended Marcel Towers to several friends already and cannot speak highly enough of our stay. We shall be returning next holidays for a much longer visit now we have discovered this gem!
