I am regular visitor to Macquarie Waters and I always enjoy my stay. Well appointed apartments in a great central position. Staff are always very friendly and helpful. Only one thing to point out is disabled access carparks should be kept for people with disability sticker, not used as staff car parking spots.

We only stayed here 1 night. Its a modern building, we had a room with kettle & fridge and a lovely balcony. Clean and comfortable very modern bathroom. We did not use the attached restaurant. Close by is the koala hospital, a very worthy visit. This hotel was very good value for us.

Stayed here a few times over the years and will continue to go back. My Wife was particularly impressed with Kathy who was more than helpful with our booking and making our time a most enjoyable one.

Our family of 4 just spent a week over Easter. Great location and modern facility was a hit with my family. Rooms was spacious with all the modern appliances.

This is a great place to stop for one or maybe a few nights. Good sized rooms and free parking with a great restaurant attached. What more do you need?

Port Macquarie is an Macquarie Waters is quite good value. The one bedroom apartment fits the bill on the big things - WiFi, great bed, spacious and clean, close to restaurants with a good cafe/restaruant.in the same building. It's the little things that add the icing - a well stocked kitchen, good hair dryer
