      Waters Edge a litt;e paradise”

      We booked 5 rooms for a group reunion We loved the hotel & the location. We all stayed in a river view room overlooking the Hastings river. What a beautiful view! We had amazing breakfast and delicious dunner.... Rooms were very clean and comfortable. We swam in the pool every day and were able to walk up to the mouth of the river, via the break wall. It was such a relaxing stay. All the staff were very friendly and welcoming. We cannot rate this lovely hotel highly enough. We will definitely be staying again, as the position and value for money was so handy in Port Macquarie

      This hotel is on a great location. We just walk up to the restaurants for dinner. Our room is upstairs and the balcony opens up to the view of the Marina. We stayed two nights and didn’t expect that the rooms will be cleaned daily. That was a pleasant surprise. The pool was enjoyed by the kids. The only thing is that the carpets are dated but for the price of this hotel, it’s definitely excellent value!

Friday evening with a solo guitarist playing & delicious cocktails... staff were welcoming and even went above and beyond assisting myself to back my car out of a tight parking spot... the outdoor facilities were very accommodating to have a barbecue & swim with some friends. Great stay!!!!Cons: sorry couldn’t find a con re my stay.

      Gem of a place - value for money”

      Absolute great place to stay as the location was amazing - walking distance to everything and right on the water. The rooms were clean and spacious and the service from the staff was super inviting and friendly. The buffet breakfast was sooo good and it was priced well. The only thing that could have made our stay better was the shower - as it took such a long time to adjust the temperature, the water was either too hot or too cold. But everything else was perfect. We will definitely be back.

      Local kids in the hotel pool at night”

      In general I would say that this is a lovely place to stay, however, I was awoken by loud noises coming from the swimming pool. I got up to see a bunch of 12-14 year olds bombing into the pool, one after the other making as much noise as they could. When they saw me pull my curtains open, they flipped me the bird and jumped the pool fence and ran away. They returned approx. 20 mins later and did the same thing. I called the out-of-hours number and all I got was an answering machine. The kids returned a few times and did the same thing. It took until well after midnight until I was able to sleep. I told the story to the person at reception the next morning. His response was that it would have been the local kids and that they did not have any security, with no attempt at an apology. Such a shame, as it is a delightful place....if you don't mind missing out on a few hours of sleep.
