What a great place to stay! From checking in to checking out, the service was seamless, professional, friendly and welcoming. The rooms were comfortable and CLEAN! Not a random hair in sight! While the bathrooms could do with a renovation, they were very clean, nice complimentary toiletries, and provided enough towels. The attached restaurant was a real highlight. Beautifully set tables, impeccable service, and the food.. oh my gosh - to die for! The romeo and juliet theme was just lovely and the stained glass windows were gorgeous. Would definitely return and recommend to anyone staying in Mackay.

Room Tip: Away from traffic noise but still central

Had an overnight stay here for a birthday celebration, was a good choice. The room was nice, very clean, very comfortable, nothing more we needed. Enjoyed a swim in the pool. Dinner in the restaurant was delicious, my only complaint is my meal could have been hotter! A free birthday drink was appreciated! Service was great, friendly staff.
Complimentary Continental breakfast was a bonus!
Would recommend as a great place to stay! Good value for money!!

What a fabulous place to stay. Very helpful didn't ask for a downstairs room when booking but they saw when we arrived that was what we needed and without asking they changed our room to downstairs. We ate in their restaurant that night and what a superb meal. We have never tasted anything like it in a long while. Breakfast was included in the price except if you wanted a cooked breakfast. We will defiantly come again. All staff we pleasant and polite. Linda the owner was very helpful about our travelling rate this motel excellent

This Motel is one turn off the main road in from the south, so very easy to find.
Rooms are clean and spacious.
The lady who booked us in was very friendly and informative.
Breakfast is good and complementary with the room.
