Customer Reviews


"Great place to stay, very neat and tidy. Rooms well set out and has everything you need. Great location, very close to restaurant and the shopping area. 
Also a stone throw from the boardwalk along the water, which is amazing to run along in morning and watch sun come up."

Wonderful Reception Staff

"The location is great, in easy walking distance of the beach, the river and shops and restaurants. The on-site restaurant The Corner is excellent. The friendly reception staff went out of their way to help us, with Jessica going above and beyond to arrange car hire and give us local insight and recommendations for exploring the area."

Great Place to Stay

"This was just what we needed to break our journey from Sydney to Byron Bay and back. The town is not far from the highway and there is an excellent service station at the junction. The hotel was easy to find and our one bed apartment was big with all the facilities and equipment we needed. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was lovely with a big shower and spa bath. The staff were friendly and went out of there way to help us unpack our car and get checked in quickly."

Awesome Place to Stay

"Staff were beyond helpful, couldn't ask for more. Our room was upgraded which was great and totally unexpected. Rooms was perfect for our stay. Lovely bottle of Cassegrains wine on arrival. Lifts were very quick. Didn't get to use the pool or spa due to it being winter but the spa in our room was awesome. Had Breakfast at the Corner restaurant within the property and the coffee was probably the best I've had in a long time. Free secure parking. Will definitely stay again when we return to Port Macquarie."

A Wonderful Place to Stay

"I stayed at Macquarie Waters while attending a conference at CSU. We had a two bedroom apartment which was actually a one bedroom with an adjoining bedsit so worked perfectly for work colleagues traveling together. We had both our own space (and own bathroom) and a communal space to eat and work together. Both rooms were huge, beautifully presented, and very clean. The location is wonderful and best of all the staff are terrific and work hard to make you feel welcome. Great place to stay!!"

"We stayed in a hotel room overnight so we could catch a show. Our experience could not have been more pleasant! From the very beginning (even booking) we received excellent customer service. Brooke asked what we were planning in town and made an impeccable suggestion for dinner.

On the day, our bank was offline and we called to advise there may be an issue with payment. Brooke reassured us everything would be fine and to come. She told us Judy would be on the front desk and would be able to manage it. When we arrived Judy was amazing. What a gem! She explained all the hotel facilities and welcomed us like we were regulars. Brooke and Judy both provided the best customer service I can remember and I do travel regularly.

Now to the room...I was a little concerned reading some the mixed reviews about the hotel rooms (I always read the worst reviews). It seemed the apartments were a hit but the hotel rooms not so such. I have to say, we were really impressed with the room, it was spacious, very comfortable and clean. 

We had coffee at the Corner Cafe downstairs when we arrived and breakfast the next morning. Each time the staff were prompt and very engaging. The food was great. It is a great complement to the Hotel.

The rooftop area is so peaceful and the location is fantastic...we will definitely be back. In fact, I am planning our next weekend away right now."
