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.

Mackay is expensive so I expected to pay more than other areas. This was by far the most expensive place we stayed in .The room was dated and had enough beds to accommodate 5 people so it felt a bit big for 2 of us. The receptionist was more than helpful . It is conveniently situated near the walkway to... More

I arrived at 10pm at night to find reception was closed. Okay, fair enough. Rang the doorbell and was rudely greeted with a 'do you know what time it is?' We were let in reluctantly. Turns out they thought we were going to arrive at 2pm even though we booked the place at 4pm... Ok, could have been more professional.... More

We stayed one night at this motor inn which is situated right on the river at MacKay alongside a walking path which takes you through to the new mall. Fantastic location but the unit we were in was pretty tired and worn. Our bathroom was very dated with a plumbing pipe running across the ceiling from the upstairs unit. There... More
