Stayed here with a bunch of other families for our U16 State Basketball Classics. Close to basketball stadium and airport. 24hr IGA within walking distance as is subway and other small takeaway outlets. All staff were super friendly. Very happy to give us extra plates and cutlery. We locked ourselves out of rooms and it was never too much trouble... More

Anne thanks for your great review! It's so nice to see! Your group of basketballers were all lovely to have as our guests and it was wonderful to see the kids enjoying the pool so much each day. We'll be looking forward to your return in June. Cheers, Michele More

Very nice motel located on the main road of Mackay. Very nice exterior design and decently sized motel rooms. We weren't on the road side but I imagine it could be a little noisy with the traffic. The only downfall was the beds were very hard, and were uncomfortable to sleep on. Otherwise a great motel.

Stopped in here after a very long drive from Bargara. It didn't look like much, just one of the 100s of motor inns in Mackay, I was sceptical, but surprisingly very comfy beds, large rooms with a fridge. Clean, quiet, smoking outside. Our room had two rooms that could sleep 5 easily and more if you had swags or sleeping... More

This motel was excellent in so many ways. Michelle was lovely and welcoming, the room was extremely clean, free WiFi a bonus. Only suggestion is to get slightly shorter kettles as I couldn't fill it up in the sink and had to fill with a mug. Otherwise everything was spot on. We'll be back!

Room was clean and modern and very spacious The only thing I could fault was the bath tub was too deep and there was no slip resistant mat. My 82 year old mother was with me and it was almost impossible for her to get in the tub, otherwise a very nice stay.

On a business trip and was really satisfied with the choice of room. Comfy bed. Large enough bathroom and accessible power points. Receptionist seemed like she didn't want to be there but was still polite. Not forthcoming with much information. Dinner option etc. My room was behind Nebo Road so didn't here much road traffic.
