Very friendly staff. Centrally located to everything. Close to COU. Stayed here twice so far and has been great both times. Only thing is it can be hard to get out of the driveway in the mornings and get back in late afternoon due to traffic. They do have a restaurant but I never went there. KFC is right across... More

We arrived early and the staff advised us on the time to have the room made up. Very clean and well presented, and the bed was so comfortable!! So tired after emotional day so was looking forward to a quiet night in. Decided to have dinner at the motel restaurant- beautiful. The food was delicious. So nice that we had... More

First room we were given the air conditioner was so noisy we couldn't hear each other talk. When we tried to talk to the man sent to have a look he couldn't understand us and did not speak much English at all. Another man came up and switched us rooms. The next room was like a prison cell with no... More

We stopped overnight on our way back to Cairns. Daryl the owner was very friendly and helpful for the moment we stepped inside reception. Our room was clean and tidy (but could do with a paint job) The only down side was when we went for a shower we found the shower head was very low and could not be... More

So I booked into the villa with my two little boys for one night. The customer service we received on check in was first class. As fair I'm concerned most motels should send their staff here for training on the correct way to treat Guests. Awesome job guys!! You' Have gained a returning customer. If you are looking for accommodation... More

My colleague and I stayed here for one night whilst we attended a workshop in Mackay. Check in was speedy and friendly, we were given the keys to our room (a standard twin share). However there were some neighbours a few door down from us who were smoking outside their room, and the smoke was starting to really stink inside... More

I booked a room at the Pioneer Villa and was unable to stay due to a family emergency. The manager was kind enough to refund my booking due to the circumstances! Great customer service and friendly staff members. I recommend this hotel for anyone that loves great hospitality and service.

We offer different room types and different rates to suit the guests rather than upsell them into a larger room with cooking facilities if that is not required. That way guests may chose their own room at their own budget. That is why we show rooms to travellers where possible. Pioneer Villa Motel is located on Nebo Road which is... More

Getting on a bit now, very clean and also comfy. Owner, Darryl, is fabulous. A true gentleman. It is just getting on in years and needs more than a facelift, it is very comfortable but if you want upmarket it isn't for you. Would I stay again, yes I would.

Like the building, the owner also is getting on in years. The good news though is that Pioneer Villa Motel is getting a facelift and improvements, not so for the owner. Such is life. More
