I just stayed at the Alara Hotel. Wow what a fantastic place. Greeted by the friendly receptionist and check in was so easy. My room was spacious and comfortable. Even had a welcome fruit platter. Amenities were everything you need. I travel for work and this is my new favourite place to stay in Mackay. Dinner was incredible. Delicious and large. I couldn’t eat it all. Breakfast was served hot and the poached eggs were cooked to perfection. Staff were so lovely and made me feel welcome from the moment I walked through the door. Loved it.

Our resent stay was great , the staff friendly and the food was beautiful! The room was clean, modern and the bed was comfortable! Access from either direction of Nebo Rd is a big bonus! Pricing was very competitive. We will be staying again when in Mackay next.

At reception was asked for my credit card and drivers licence so their details could be stored on the motels IT system. If I hadn’t been tired would have refused and gone elsewhere. My personal details are now stored on a system that could have inadequate security. Was told by reception that this was standard on instructions from management. First time in all my travels this has occurred. Room was fine, large and well set out. Very well cleaned.

Dear Mr Hills, thank you for your feedback. It is common/best practice for all of our Guests to provide their identification and payment details. As I tried to explain to your Wife, with the current Covid times, having confirmation of your identification assists with any Government required tracing. This is a requirement if you are wanting to be a Guest at our Motel. I cannot comment if other accommodation providers are not doing this, I can only advise of our requirements. I wish you both well with your future travels. Kind regards, The Team @ Alara

Stayed the first time at Alara Motor Inn and Lee & Jim were welcoming hosts! The room was spacious, well appointed and had very clean facilities. Staff clearly take pride in what they do. Was here for a few night, so was able to sample both the dinner menu and breakfast menu, and was pleased with a the selections made. Meals presented well, tasty. Has a pool, though did t swim but looked nicely kept, as was the whole property. Thank you guys, will be back.

Best experience in a Mackay motel for years. All staff were helpful and welcoming. Rooms were spacious and very clean. Evidence of sanitising everywhere. On site restaurant was excellent for service value and quality. But it was the little things like fresh fruit bowl and bottles of water which were complimentary that added to a great experience. Top value and quality.
