There are so many motels as you drive into Mackay it was hard to know which one to pick. We tried a couple before deciding on the Pioneer Villa Motel. The others were much more expensive and although they had signs advertising restaurants, there was no food available as they were closed for the Christmas season. I would have thought... More

Stopped at the Pioneer on the way to Townsville, arrived at 5pm, first thing the kids did was jump in the pool with the managements children who were very friendly, the management were really nice. The room itself was dated from the 70/80s but was clean and tidy, sheets and towels were clean and fresh. Good place for a stop... More

First room we were given had a leaking toilet. The smell was terrible, only we did not notice when we first arrived. Was only when we got back from dinner that the worst was noticed. Also there were no power points near the bedheads! We both have CPAP machines and require power outlets. Staff was helpful but didn't really know... More

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.
