Great staff operating a great motel. Rooms are big and the spa was amazing. Breakfast was served in the breakfast room and it was yummy and we didn't need to wait long. We will be back next time we are in town.

With all accommodation in crescent booked out when we travelled on the easter long weekend out this was a handy close option. Clean and neat with pay tv and a spa bath it was just right. Easy check in and out and onsite parking off the highway.

Really enjoyed our stay for 2 night here over the weekend. Not overdone, rooms are not full of stuff you don't need. Walking distance to everything in town and the river Rooms are big with a great sized bathroom as well. Immaculately clean Is one street back from the main road but we didn't hear a single truck Highly recommended

We spent two nights in this lovely motel. The rooms are very spacious with everything you need. The bed was very comfortable with lovely white pristine sheets. Undercover parking, walking distance to everything in town and the Nambucca River. We have stayed in many hotel and motel rooms all over the world, none as clean as this one.

There is not a lot of choice in Macksville, but the Mandarin is pretty good. Off the main road but close to all the facilities. The rooms were modern, comfortable and clean. No complaints at all. The lady in reception was also very friendly and helpful. Will stay here again.

Have stayed here previously over the years and always found it the best place to stop over when travelling north or south between Sydney and the Sunshine Coast. Now has new owners/managers but the same friendly, high standards prevail. Good night's sleep assured due to quiet location off the highway and the comfy beds. Like the idea of my car...

Great comfort, affordability and friendly service make this place worth returning to. Within a short stroll from the shopping center, RSL Club and many other cafes and restaurants. The optional dine in breakfast is a definite drawcard where you can experience the friendliness and personal service.
