Excellent service, very clean & comfortable room. Meals in the restaurant are absolutely delicious. Would definitely recommend. John & Lynda are very welcoming & its like home away from home. Close to CBD.

We needed a place to rest to escape the horrid weather and Lynda/Rose helped us settle in. Haha. Clean room, comfy bed and a great breakfast for $88 a night. Absolutely zero complaints about anything. Pubs across the roads good too! Thanks for making us laugh while we stayed, James and Rose.

For ten bucks more we had a comfortable room with a tv and serious air con. The dinner we got was a little bland but the portion was over generous. The breakfast included...

It's a shame the pictures on your website, doesn't show the true state of the rooms. Very tired, & old. Badly needs a makeover. Bathroom had cracked tiles, old & disgusting. Bed was so uncomfortable, we rolled in to the centre. It didn't get any better, noisy workers going to work in the early hours, outside light on all night...

Near the hospitals, take away food shops, 2 shopping centres, Mackay Entertainment Centre. Easy to access. The room was comfortable, clean. The furnishings are a little older but everything in very good condition. Will be staying again. I...

Apart from incredible value for money which includes free hot breakfast, John and Lynda the owners, go out of their way to create a warm and welcoming stay. This is my new place to stay whenever in Mackay. Don't bother looking anywhere else!
