Stay here a lot for work and the rooms are great ..good size.. staff are always friendly and accommodating.. the food in the restaurant is excellent with great steaks and a nice friendly environment. The bar area is new and open and has a very relaxed feel.

Booked the Pavillion for a birthday party and decided to stay at the Shamrock Gardens. Best move ever. Staff were excellent, facilities were excellent and the motel rooms were exceptional. Thank you and I will stay again. We had a fantastic night.

The rooms are very nice, it is a big plus. The bed is comfortable. It is perfect if you want to party and drop in for a sleep. If you want a peaceful night sleep I would avoid it as the pub crowd is noisy. The first night the party went on till 11pm, the second night till 2am. It... More

We stayed in a balcony room overlooking the delightful pool and fountain, and found everything we needed. A spacious, clean, comfortable room, a good bathroom with decent modern shower and a comfortable bed. There was even a washing machine and dryer! It was early in the week, so pretty quiet which might not be the case later in the week... More

Our room was spacious, good self catering facilities including a washing machine. We were away from traffic noise. Saturday night was busy/noising at times - the facility is combined with a hotel. We had a meal one evening and it was very tasty. The tropical atmosphere was enhanced with the garden/pool area.

We had a great night's stay, even with a wedding party happening that afternoon it was quiet. The garden view room we had was spacious with a great little kitchenette. The bar had my favourite scotch too! Will definitely stay again. The reception staff were friendly and jovial at check-in and check-out.

Spent two nights at the Shamrock. The service and staff were excellent. The only area that let the place down was the house keeping. Shook the doona to have dirty toe nails fall out and there was chewing gum stuck on the bed side table. The food at the Shamrock was excellent and caters for kids too.( Family friendly). I... More

I traveled to Mackay to see some old friends and they recommended the Shamrock to stay at as the reunion was in one of their function rooms. The rooms were very comfortable and affordable. The renovated venue looks amazing and the service, drinks and food are equally amazing. The Pavilion function room where the reunion was held looks very country... More
