We have stayed before on journeys south and returning home, the location is easy access off the highway yet a quiet retreat for the evening. The rooms are spacious and clean, parking is free and covered. An excellent restaurant provides you with meals or takeaway burgers etc are a short walk away. Reception is friendly, beds are comfy, what more could you ask for, we will be back again for sure...Just a note it is not near downtown Mackay and not within walking distance, a vehicle is required...

This is the second time we have stayed here - the rooms are clean, the a/c cold (very important in this oart of the world especially in a summer heatwave. We didn't arrive until very late at night and the staff were very helpful. Great stopover on a long drive.

We stayed at the Windmill Motel on our drive up to Cairns in January. This is a gem of a place to overnight - the room was very clean, quiet and spacious with great air-conditioning with a fantastic manager to great you at check-in. The restaurant attached has wonderful food (great chef) I would recommend on your next long journey stay at the Windmill in Mackay.

Room Tip: We always ask for a room where our car is parked just outside our door.

Excellent having a restaurant attached to the motel. Quiet as back from the highway. Enjoyed our stay and will continue to stay again in the future. Pool and tennis court. Would recommend to family and friends.

The staff at the Windmill, in particular the manager were among the most accomodating and service oriented hospitality staff I have ever encountered. They considered us as their guests and made out lives easy, helping us with all the things we requested. Our family stayed 6 days and found it to be a great home away from home.
