Over nighted in Mackay and found this gem. Management went out of the way to be accomodating. This motel represents excellent value and the rooms are superior to other like motels that we have stayed in in Mackay. Evening meals are good and represent value. Future travelling through Mackay will see this as our preferred option

Picked this hotel on the run as we were driving south for holidays. Very reasonably priced for overnight stay. Very comfortable room, great bed which is always a bonus when travelling. Room service available. IGA supermarket across the road and plenty of takeaway shops handy. Staff friendly. This motel has been added to our must stay again list.

Nicely maintained, very clean and comfy little motel. The host is a very friendly lady, eager to help you out to fund a good place to eat or with directions somewhere, and certainly committed to providing you with a comfortable stay. I have stayed here twice now, and will endeavor to do so again when I am stopping through on...

We were travelling through and were lucky enough to find this gem. Amazing price and the room was very comfortable and clean. The staff were lovely and there was nothing that we needed that wasn't in the room. Great location close to food and fuel.I would definitely stay here again.

This was a stopover. The staff were fantastic! So friendly and helpful. The room was large, clean and very comfy. Parking was easy and it was super easy to get around, especially with the help of the staff. Definitely will be back when travelling through again!!
