First we just booked one night in the motel with Petra and Michael - but it didn't take long to feel totally comfortable! The rooms offer all amenities you can wish for and are in a perfect and clean condition! Petra and Michael would not only offer you touristic information but everything else they can help you with. They just... More

We decided to stay here because the previous reviews were so good. Our accommodations met our needs....bed, towels, coffee, hot water pot, etc. Though we've stayed in places with many more amenities, this one takes the cake for great service. Although, we do have a fondness for what we call "I Love Lucy" type of motels. Mike and Petra were... More

A very warm welcome with milk for tea. Clean and comfortable, quiet location so a good night's sleep. Central Mackay is all walkable with lots of bars and restaurants around, the Italian across the road was great. A good place to stay on a long journey north or south. Breakfast is delivered to your room as there is no restaurant.

We stayed here only 1 night but it was so pleasing I felt it deserved a review anyway. The building is an older one but so much care and attention has been invested in the rooms. There is an old adage that one should always spend the night in your own guest room before you let a friend stay there,... More

My partner and I stayed the one night and were warmly greeted by the owners, who offered us homemade cookies as we checked in and then showed us to our room. The room is very comfortable with a nice soft bed and big tv, with everything being clean and tidy. This place is such a bargin and will be definitely... More

Such a great place to stay! The rooms are always immaculate and a great size! The staff make you feel right at home and make an effort to know your name and the milk given to you in a jug is a lovely touch! The free wifi is excellent and I would definitely recommend staying here!

Very good location and the rooms were spotless. Michael and Petra were very welcoming and the added touch of home baked cookies was a bonus. Highly recommend. Will certainly stay here on any future trips to Macaky.

We chose the International Lodge as it is right in town & close to everything. We were on an overnight in August before continuing on to Brisbane & then to America. The rooms are newly renovated & very clean. Petra & Michael are friendly & welcoming & Petra's home baked cookies are fabulous! A great motel for a stopover in... More

This motel is "THE BEST IN TOWN". Petra and Michael welcome all guests upon arrival, the motel is clean and fresh, in a quiet location, but in walking distance to local restaurants & shops. Petra & Michael give great recommendations of places to visit in the local areas. I highly recommend this family focused motel. Petra & Michael thank you... More

From the minute you arrive you are well care for, the rooms are serviced ever day, beds are made, room is cleaned and clean fresh towels are left. The home made cookies and meals are... More
