My wife had been admitted to hospital and I needed a place a to stay with my 2 young daughters. Not only were the reception staff friendly and helpful, they also went out of their way to help me, by giving me a self contained unit to all out washing. Will definitely be back. 😀

We over nighted at the Shamrock after attending a function in their beer garden. The Beer garden was a great venue. The large covered area was nicely laid out & presented. It's location meant our function was separate from the main bar and restaurant. It was breezy & nice & cool, but kept us dry despite the rain. The staff... More

This was a quick one night stop for us. The kids loved the pool. The complementary continental breakfast that is already in the fridge is perfect!!! The restaurant was wonderful, we had 7 adults and 2 children and everyone loved their meal. With a washing machine and dryer in all of the rooms is excellent. Will definitely stay again.

Comfort is a top priority at Shamrock Gardens. The spacious room had comfortable beds, ample storage space, patio, attractive decor, micro, cook top, bar fridge, TV and A/C. Bathroom was large. Water was hot and plentiful. What really makes the Shamrock stand out is FREE breakfast (Yoghurt, bread for toasting, butter, toppings, assorted cereal, milk and juice) and FREE WIFI.... More

Great place to stay in Mackay. Friendly staff, big and clean rooms. We had lunch and dinner at the pub. Lots of choices in the menu from light salads to juicy steaks. Would go back for sure. Function rooms also looked good for future conferences

The staff were very helpful throughout the organisation of our function and went above and beyond to give us the event we wanted. Lovely staff, clean modern facilities and good food. Not much else you can ask for.

I have stayed here many times and have never been disappointed. the rooms are large, the food is good and the price comparable to other accommodation along the coast of North Queensland that I have stayed in.
