They are all so friendly - and...

We dined at the Shakespeare and I had Barramundi. It was delicious and I loved the fresh green salad. It is licensed with a good selection of wines. The service was excellent and ambience quiet. Well worth a visit.

If you get the chance to stay make sure you try the slow cooked stuffed lamb shoulder, 5 star quality. To top this off the staff are...

This is a hidden gem in Mackay. The staff were only too please to assist beyond expections. The food on offer in the restaurant is delicious and the various options is well chosen. For a chance to have no distracting details to finally relax after a day of travels, this is the place to stay.

I stayed here as part of disaster recovery deployment. The motel staff were brilliant! Please support this motel! They have stayed up late and woken up early to accommodate my team, and gotten to know us by name. Clean and well serviced with a great restaurant and tidy bar!!

What a great place to stay! From checking in to checking out, the service was seamless, professional, friendly and welcoming. The rooms were comfortable and CLEAN! Not a random hair in sight! While the bathrooms could do with a renovation, they were very clean, nice complimentary toiletries, and provided enough towels. The attached restaurant was a real highlight. Beautifully set...
