The surrounding grounds are peaceful. The view from the room of Cockle Creek was lovely. The room was spacious & very clean.

Room was clean, comfortable and tidy. It has the basics with a kettle, tea, coffee, sugar, hairdryer and sample toiletries. Car park is right out the front door with plenty of spaces. Easy internal access to the adjoining Club Macquarie. It also has a vending machine with a small range of drinks, chocolates and chips. You have the option of paying and having breakfast in the lower part of the club, but my husband and I both thought this was a little pricey for what you get having stayed here a few times before in the past. But overall a nice place to stay 👍👍

Excellent accommodation but club food poor

Pros: Everything except the noisy food/drink machine in the hallway outside our room
Cons: Remove the noisy drink machine in the hallway. A vastly improved dining menu.
Excellent accommodation and very helpful staff. Regrettably the adjacent club restaurant serves a disappointing menu even for "club" food. Lots of pokies and TAB for those who like a bet. I recommend eating out otherwise a perfect place to stay. PS Close to a railway line so expect a little noise occasionally. (not bad)

Very neat and new

Great hotel with very large rooms. Our room was very clean and new. The club was great for dinner and breakfast. The staff at both the hotel and the club were lovely and made the stay more enjoyable. Would recommend this accomodation if it's in the area your looking for.

Beside waterway,quiet & spacious and ample parking

Pros: Breakfast staff ,bar staff and those doing the dinners were top class. Quiet and roomie and plenty of parking.
Cons: Booking in and checking out .
Location: Attended an American car show held on the Sunday on the grass at Club Macquarie .
After making the booking on the 10th of October for the 10th &11th of November my visa noted the full $ 328 deducted .They rang me late on that night asking when I was arriving and I told them it was next month.My wotif email from the date I booked said all booked and confirmed and no need to ring and confirm.I paid for the two breakfasts with cash on the Sunday I checked out and I now have a statement to say balance paid. NOW MY VISA TELLS ME THERE IS $50 PENDING,IM RELUCTANT TO RING THEM BUT WOTIF MAY BE ABLE TO HELP HERE .IF THERE IS A $50 NON- REFUNDABLE DEPOSITE OVER AND ABOVE THE WEB QUOTED PRICE I WOULD NOT HAVE BOOKED ONLINE.( there should be no monies outstanding ).

Dear Peter, Thank you for you post. When booking through wotif or similar platforms booking fees are charged straight away. This is their process not ours. The $50 pending is the amount held on credit cards for surety. If businesses do not use the surety it will drop off your account after 5-7 days. Our records show that our front reception staff did explain this on the day. Please be assured there is nothing outstanding. We are pleased that you found the staff in at breakfast and in the bar met with your approval. We would welcome a phone call to discuss your issues with check in and check out. Again thank you for taking the time to post your review. Management team Macquarie inn

Delicious dinner, close to the main shopping strip

We had a good overnight stay at the Macquarie Inn. The room had everything we needed and dinner was delicious. It was a quick walk into the Main Street to grab a few things at the supermarket too.
