Really needs pulling down and starting again. Under the circumstances as described it was comfortable and clean just very tired. Friendly staff and certainly fine for a one night stay, close to the river easy walk to centre.

I've stayed here twice, arriving late and leaving early. Rooms very large, clean & quiet. Appears good value to other rooms in Mackay, nothing spectacular but suits my needs, close to shops and shopping centre .

Stayed here on business. Was not a great experience. The positives were that the room was large and seemingly clean, the motel was reasonably well-located and the staff were nice. The negatives were that the motel was very expensive for what it was, extremely dated, and not very secure (thin doors and accessible windows). A group of us stayed here... More

Been Mackay shopping for years and we decided to go for a drive down from Canelands and found this hidden little gem. Very clean quiet large rooms and great decor has been modern up to great standard. King bed and single bed for 140 pretty good price for Mackay but the walk to Canelands and main centre for shopping and... More

My room was extremely noisy until some motor or external fan turned off around 8pm. Not comfortable until then. Maybe other rooms were less noisy. Room was very basic. No coffee or tea facilities in room. Hot water fluctuated during shower which was not enjoyable. Room was clean and adequate however definitely dated. Location was great and service was adequate....

An excellent Inner City Motel- well run by a professional couple who were very friendly and helpful. Good location convenient for good numerous restaurants and easy to find. The Bathroom area was tired and suggest it was in dire need of replacement. Swimming Pool was welcome respite from the humidity as the ambient temperature was as usual 30*C

Appropriate amenity, good for an overnight-stop. It is located near the River and a few restaurants are in walking distance. We stayed there only for one night on our tour up to Cairns. Room was clean.

This was our first time in Mackay and if you haven't been before, I would suggest this place as it is in THE best location. We didn't have a car so being located in town and walking distance to most things was great.

This motel is in a lovely location right next to the River. Ask for a room with a view. Very tired but comfortable enough. King room had a fridge, tea and coffee making facilities. Bed was comfortable and reception lady was very polite. We walked along the boardwalk beside the motel to the restaurants at the base of the shopping... More

Drastically in need of an update. Very basic rooms. Ants crawling all over my bathroom. No Wifi. Breakfast was good though, generous servings of bacon. Good location, short walk to centre of town. People at reception were nice.
