Stayed at many similar properties around the world. This one was good with quiet rooms. Food ok nothing to rave about. Price average compared to others. Would use again as good showers and access. Room hire is a bit pricey and the chef was not prepared to assist with requests outside the menu for a function.

We'll priced, lovely rooms with kitchenette and right next to the pool. Also just a few metres walk to the Shamrock Hotel for dinner and drinks . Very friendly staff. Would recommend and would stay again. Very handy having the kitchenette but also great to be able to walk next door to the motel restaurant,.

Stayed overnight on a business trip. Rooms are large & comfortable. Everything is a bit jaded & in need of a refresh but overall good value for money. The best thing about this place is the quietness of the rooms. Other motels on Nebo Rd can be very noisy, this had no road noise at all. Air conditioner sounded like... More

Beer was warm, food was cold and after a long wait for the food the meals came out wrong so another long wait. Taste of the food was pretty ordinary too and lady behind bar was rude. Don't come here for a feed. It's awful.

Went with friends to have a meal tonight. Food 2/5 Service. 2/5 Very old, requires Re vamp. Leaking roof. Toilets dirty. Staff serving food, English required revamp also. Best part of night the company. The owners need to take a long look at this, staff probably poorly paid, no upkeep on building. Fault ask yourself? Mary Howard.

Nice new tv in the room but does take attention away from the fact that they have many maintenance issues to address in the room. Marks on the walls that have been patched but not painted! Further, they have just thrown the tv on the old stand instead of spending 75 bucks and buying a new wall mount! Further the... More

We stayed here as an overnight stop over and chose this place because of the adjoining tavern. The rooms were basic and seemed clean. Was ok to use as a place to sleep but not worth the $170 a night price tag.

Used this to overnight, and got last room. Mackay is a boom town, and most quality hotels are presently overpriced or booked out with contractors. This motel has been set up for that reason, with laundry facilities in room, and adjoining Shamrock Hotel (plus good eatery) connected by a gate. Meals/drinks can be charged back to your room. I found... More
