Macquarie Waters Hotel & Apartments
Ranked #2 of 42 Hotels in Port Macquarie
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 July 2014

We spent three nights at this hotel in June 2014. The staff were great, very helpful and friendly. The one bedroom apartment was large with a large balcony with water views. Furnishings were modern and the king bed comfortable. Within walking distance to the main shopping area and other attractions. The Corner Restaurant (at the hotel) was very enjoyable, top quality food, friendly staff. Would definitely recommend.

The 2 bedroom spa apartment was perfectly appointed for a family of 2 adults & 2 children. Very roomy living/dining area & an additional TV in the main bedroom for parents. Fully stocked kitchen with all the appliances you could need & a huge balcony with water views. Highly recommend Macquarie waters for an affordable luxury family getaway

This was our second visit for a single night stay here and we'll definitely be back. Although reception was closed when we arrived our keys and welcome letter we're waiting in the restaurant (The Corner). Our room was immaculately clean with a balcony and sea views. The bathroom and toiletries are great. We spent a very comfy night here and enjoyed a delicious breakfast at The Corner in the morning. This place is a treasure to have found and we'll be back

Really friendly check in, comfortable, clean & quiet room (407) & a breakfast to die for perfectly served! Location is spot on, pool is good and to cap it all there is roof garden with hot tub, BBQ & loungers. We will recommend to family & friends. Only criticism - we didn't reserve for dinner & they were full!. A gem of a place.

Thank you for such a lovely review. You summed up everything we hope to achieve for all our guests, except we are so sorry we could not fit you in for dinner, perhaps you could travel back to Port Macquarie in summer and sit outside in our beautiful alfresco area.

It may have been winter in Port Macquarie but it sure didn't feel like it. The sun was out, the water was warm and the whales were playing. Stayed two nights at Macquarie Waters before leaving Port Macquarie for work in Melbourne. The Macquarie Waters is a delightful contemporary style facility with modern clean bathrooms and with a very comfortable bed (much needed after a day of house packing). Enjoyed the "National Tourism Award Winning" Corner Restaurant in the facility. The Daily Special (Salmon with truffled Scallops) was fabulous and tried the Napa Valley Petite Syrah - it was worth it! Over the four years I lived in Port Macquarie The Corner proved itself to be consistently one the best three eateries. The owners/hosts Peter & Kathy were serving in "The Corner" at breakfast - what don't these two likable characters know about Mid North Coast NSW tourism! Kathy is on the local tourism board. I would highly recommend Macquarie Waters and The Corner Restaurant.

Choose this place due to good reviews on TA. Initially booked a double bed room. But change to a 1 bedroom apartment as recommended on TA. Oh boy, so glad I made the change. Our apartment #507 is spacious and has a beautiful side view of the shoreline. Sarah is most helpful when I made the room reservation change. She also kept us informed that 09 Jun is a public holiday in Australia and gave me advice how to collect my keys if we arrive after 4pm. Her prompt service assured us we made the right choice in choosing to stay here. Below are pros/cons of this property:
Pros:
1) Free and strong wi-fi.
2) Spacious and good room layout.
3) Firm bed and pillow.
4) Very friendly reception - Sarah is warm and nice.
5) Convenient location with tight security to access premises after hours. Drove less than 5 mins to Coles, the only store still opens till 9pm.
6) Full kitchen facilities. Coffee/tea bags, sugar and milk provided.
7) 3 packs of laundry powder provided free in apartment + a laundry stand. Managed to do a full load of washing and have fresh clothing for rest of trip.
8) Stayed in a 1-bedroom apartment, only see a little of shoreline. Maybe next time will ask for rooms with full shoreline view.
9) There's a Jacuzzi in the bathroom. But with so many activities to do at Port Macquarie, no chance to use it.
Cons:
1) Card access to car park needs improvement. Card contact is very poor. Always require many attempts before gate opens.
2) Bedroom does not have air conditioning / reverse heating. Also did not see a heater in the apartment. Not sure if it would be cold when it's winter.
3) Water from shower area seeps out to floor at wash basin area. Pls consider closing gap at shower door to stop water seeping out.
All in, great place to stay. Will definitely return.

Room Tip: If can, stay in 1 bedroom apartment for space.

Very clean & well appointed apartments. Check-in was friendly, helpful & efficient. We stayed 3 nights & really enjoyed the space, quality & setup of these apartments. We had a slight view of the river & the hot tubs on the roof with the views were very relaxing. It’s the little things that made this better than a top class hotel. Free wifi, Austar with many channels, huge TV screen, complimentary papers, no credit card fees & free room service from the excellent restaurant below. Central to the town, river & beaches, I would definitely stay here again.
