Outstanding reception from Petra & Michael. Beautiful comfy rooms that are close to everything in Mackay. We couldn't have been happier and this will definitely be our first choice when we visit again :)

Wow. Nestled in the shadow of a large multi national chain is this Hidden Gem. A diamond in fact. From the minute you are greeted with a smile and warm welcome by either Petra or Michael, to the home cooked biscuits, the perfectly poached breakfast eggs. Not to forget, the story's and friendships forged over some quiet 'lemonades' after 5.... More

Stayed for two nights for work as my colleague has been a regular for a while now and booked it for us. Petra and Michael are amazing and very welcoming. Best breakfast in any motel/hotel i have ever stayed in...it was actually hot! Even the toast! I will definitely be back!

We stumbled across this hotel by accident and were exceptionally fortunate to get a room (they get lots of repeat customers and with good reason!)! We planned to stay one night but we were so pleased with the welcome and facilities that we ended up extending our stay. The rooms are well equipped (comfy beds, microwave, fridge, plates, tea towels... More

Don't rely on their opening times. Saw they had rooms available and were open until 9pm - rocked up at 8:15pm to find office shut and no after hours number. Advise calling and booking ahead to avoid disappointment. Potters Oceanside has 24 hour check in.

Michael and Pet... C, Manager at International Lodge Motel, responded to this review

We were quite surprised with your review, and appreciate any feedback. We are however, concerned with a couple of your comments you made regarding arriving at 8.15pm and finding the office door shut, and, not having a phone number displayed. Our reception hours are 7am – 9pm daily and our phone number is displayed on the large sign at the... More

Excellent care service from Michael and his wife. Exceeding their 3 star service. Clean accommodation. We booked in with our disable son in a non disabled room. They made sure all needs were met and more. Happy to recommend them as a 5 star plus.

This is the first place I have stayed in since Cairns that has been renovated since the 1970s! Comfortable bed and freshly painted walls made for a very pleasant stay. Many of Mackay's amenities are within an easy strolling distance. The owners couldn't have been more kind and helpful and made me feel most welcome.

I stayed here for 2 nights while I was having surgery done at the Mater hospital. Petra and Michael were absolutely fantastic! Michael drove me to and from the hospital and Petra was very caring. The rooms are basic but very clean and the beds are comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and free wi-fi to the rooms is a bonus.... More
