What a disappointment. Our recent 3 night stay nearly caused tears within minutes of arriving. Our water view room was of the inlet with a public car park in between. Our room was musty smelling, chairs on balcony nearly tipped us backwards, carpet stained, shower head rusted, room poor condition overall. It has been a long time since we have...

Came to enjoy 2 quiet days by the water, got 2 sleepless nights listening to function guests get progressively drunker, louder and more foul mouthed, culminating in 3am corridor antics! When I checked out and voiced my opinion that the hotel needed to choose between functions and hotel guests I received no apology, just the desk operator had been there...

Spent 3 nights here. Although the Motel was full, it was very quiet as this is situated at the "waters edge". Close to the city center and very convenient for shopping and restaurant. Check-in and check-out are quick. Room and bathroom are clean. I like it that our room has a river view and we can just look out and...

The view was beautiful. The included breakfast was good, with all the usual things on offer. Staff were friendly. There was a breakfast meeting being held in a room close...

We have now stayed at Waters Edge several times over the last year and we find it just fantastic value. We always book a waterfront suite and you cannot fault the view or the room. I have stayed at several places in Port over the years and this is the best place for value. The rooms are so clean and...

We had a very pleasant stay at this establishment. The room was spacious and very comfortable. There was a little balcony from which we had a wonderful view of the river. The breakfast was really lovely - plenty of good food to eat - and it was great to sit out on the patio while doing so, enjoying the warmth...

Great location - lovely room and great view. Breakfast was good value and the staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is in walking distance of many cafes and attractions and is actually at the waters edge!
