Fantastic stay in 2 bedroom apartment. Very clean and spacious fully equipped and in great central location. Friendly and accommodating staff. The Corner Cafe located on street level is exceptional and owned and run by very friendly family members. Highly recommended and will definitely stay again.

We stayed in a 2bedroom apartment the Unit was clean and spacious and view was terrific. We only had one night as visiting for my Grandsons 3yo birthday, we will definately return to this hotel. The location is great, view from the balcony terrific. We ordered takeaway from the Indian Restaurant underneath and it was enjoyable 7/10 I would rate it. Pool is lovely and well maintained, the grandson had a great time swimming. A tad noisy of a night due to the caravan park being close and some road noise, but not a massive issue. Parking was undercover in the building basement and secure.

We stayed here for a few days in late March 2022. The place was neat, clean, comfortable and well maintained. All the appliances were in good working order. The associated restaurant was then only open for breakfast, however, there are multiple other restaurants within a short walking distance. The nearest shopping centre, Port Central, is about a five minute walk. Parking is undercover in the building basement and secure. It is relatively easy to use. Wifi was provided. Download and upload speeds were 53.6 Mbps and 17.7 Mbps respectively. Recommended.

What a great apartment this was! Perfect location so central to everything. We were most impressed with the set up of the family apartment we got as it was essentially 2 separate apartments joined as 1 , so we were fairly separate to the kids & had a bathroom each. Some other positives were that they also provided hot chocolate sachets & biscuits which were a hit with the kids & free parking. The negatives were that the room curtains weren't totally blockout & the lights from outside lit the rooms up a lot & the noise from traffic in the street was fairly loud. But we will definitely be back to stay here again, hopefully in the same room 😀

Excellent location. Can leave car parked & walk easily to a beach & to town. My main gripe is that the apartment we stayed in was listed as 1 bedroom apartment but it’s not. It’s basically an open plan set up with a curtain to block bed from lounge area. That’s not a bedroom really & description on website is misleading. Also the apartment is badly in need of upgrading. Lots of visible wear & tear. & there’s no wall separating bathroom & bedroom. The toilet & shower are separate but sink & spa bath is open to bed area. Very dated. The whole complex is badly in need of upgrading.

We stayed here in a 2 bedroom apartment and we were quite happy with the rooms and inclusions. Very convenient to town centre, restaurants and coles. However the washing machine and kitchen range hood could have been upgraded. Range hood was broken and washing machine paused a few times during its washing period. Overall clean and comfortable for our stay.

I and my wife stayed at Macquarie Waters for 6 days to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were provided an outstanding 5-star service at the hotel especially by Brandon. The world would have been a better place if more people had the same professionalism and dedication he had. Cheers for everything you’ve done for us mate, keep doing you! Can’t wait to go back there again!

Great central location. Staff were helpful and always friendly. Clean and plenty of room. Didn't cook but had all the necessary utensils and appliances. Ice ready to use in the freezer. Bed suited us and was very comfortable. Extra pillows if needed. We had a spa bath but didn't use it. Plenty of hot water. Although our 5th floor apartment width balcony overlooked Clarence St and Port Pacific apartments it was a very open view as you can see in my photos. . Didn't get to use it as unfortunately ,rainy weather. No vehicle noise with large sliding doors shut and no noise from other apartments so very quiet for a good night's sleep. Great views from the rooftop with a heated spa. Pool area on lobby level. Both looked inviting. Parking in the secure garage was good and no problems anytime finding a space. Can recommend breakfast and great coffee in "The Corner Restaurant" just off the lobby. A short walk to Shopping, and to the river rockwall walk with lots of options for meals. Greek restaurant "Papa Feta Ouzeria" just a few minutes walk away was delightful but suggest you share dishes- even the mains- especially the melt in your mouth roast lamb ( large portions). Best roast potatoes!!

Quite a few issues unfortunately which were not fixed. Dirty spa in the room. Dirt marks on the walls. Electricity keep tripping. Not the most comfortable stay. Reception finish at 4 - so it you have a problem after that it’s too bad. Better places to stay

We enjoyed our stay in the hotel which is quite central and located at walking distance to beach, cafes and restaurants. The apartment is nice with a huge balcony with sea views. Also laundry and well equipped kitchen with dining and living room area and and bedroom with a confortable bed. During our stay we did not hear absolutely any noise and I found it was quite quiet and private. Also there is an internal car park with easy end quick access to lifts and a cafe next door. We also found the staff quite polite and helpful and easy to talk with. I will definitely come back and I really recommend this hotel to anyone.
