Bathroom was a tight squeeze. But very clean. Staff are friendly and the home made biscuits are a treat. Good location. Eateries and shops are walking distance. Parking is off the street. Air conditioning is only for cooling but bed and pillows are comfortable and there was an extra blanket.

Good morning Linda. Thank you for your review. We have reverse cycle air conditioners in all our rooms. We should have explained how it works, when you arrived. Our apologies. More

I didn't want to stay on the highway at any of the hundreds of options there so just rode around Mackay and finally spotted this. I pulled up on my motorbike and hadn't even stopped the motor before Petra, on elf the owners, was out to welcome me. As I didn't have a reservation I thought she was mistaken, but... More

The service that we received from the Managers of this place was just amazing. From the moment we walked in the door to sign in it was as though they were old friends that would do anything to ensure that we had the best two days holiday that we could. They succeded, from running us around in their own vehicle... More

Spent a couple of nights. The hosts were warm and went out of their way to be helpful. Rooms were clean, wifi provided. Excellent valurle for money right in the middle of town, well within walking distance of major shops eateries and nightspots . If you are looking for basic requirements while looking around town, a good base camp!

A perfect stopover place in centre of town. The operators Mike and Petra could not have been more helpful and even gave us a lift to the airport when we enquired about a taxi.Very clean comfortable rooms and if ever in MacKay again will definitely be staying there.

A wonderful place to stay in Mackay, away from busy main roads and a very short walking distance to an array of shops, food places and cafes. For those who like to exercise on their trips the Mackay Blue Water trail is easily accessible and a beautiful place to go for a run. The owners are very hospitable and helpful,... More

Stopped here on our way from Brisbane to Cairns - immaculately clean and well curbed accommodation - friendly welcome - room excellent in this price band with crisp sheets and fluffy towels. Free wifi and parking . Breakfast available if required!

We stayed for 1 night only while traveling from Cairns to Brisbane, but we had an excellent experience at this motel.The managers (or owners, I don't know) were extremely friendly on our check in, suggesting places where we could have dinner and offering to deliver the breakfast (not included) at our room.

I stayed one night and I loved it. I rode in from Cairns on my Harley looking for a good night's rest The room was nice and comfortable. The best part about the stay was the operators. Mike and Petra are some of the nicest people I've met. They're a great and friendly couple.
