The units are apartments and well set out. For me the location for my work was great with no more than a five minute walk. The unit had good views and all the extras such as a recharge unit for any mobile phone in case you leave your charger at home.

We booked here on New Years day and can't believe how lucky we where to choose the quest, clean close to the lagoon pools, shopping and most of all Dan Murphy and restaurants and Bellisimo Gelato for the kids, and I must say Bianca was fantastic always said hello and nothing was trouble for her.

Stayed here for one night for business. The studio rooms are very spacious. Cavernous in fact. Plenty of room. Well maintained. Good clean bathroom. Comfy bed. Only thing I don't like is that it's two singles punched together and there was a pronounced lump in the middle of the bed. Cat at reception was friendly and efficient. A real pleasure... More

Stayed one night for a business trip last week. Firt rime staying at this quest. Nice place and average by quest standards. But the noise from the adjoin room was too much.

Hi, I'm sorry your stay was not a pleasant one. I do know that my staff did speak with the guests concerned and I'm disappointed for both yourselves and our reputation that we were not able to exceed your expectations, hopefully you will come back and see our newly refurbished product and get a true "Quest" experience More

I am staying in a One bedroom apartment here at Quest Mackay and it is exactly what I want. In the center of town I am less than 500m away from several dinner options. The apartment is well appointed with a dining table that can double as a proper work area instead of using those silly little motel/hotel desks! I... More

Only one night into a third night stay so hoping things improve and I can update this review. So far TV and phone does not work and shower leaks water across floor. Also refrigerator was set to highest level and unnoticed so all our fresh food is frozen and spoilt. Not an auspicious start. Could pay more attention to details.

I had an excellent room with a kitchen and balcony. I had everything I needed including a washer and dryer. The bed was comfortable and the bedroom had a separate air conditioning unit to the rest of the room. The shower had good water pressure and the whole apartment was clean and modern.

Great location in the middle of town. Nice rooms, good pool and very friendly staff. I asked to borrow an iPhone charger and was presented with one with a big smile. Defiantly the best choice for Business in Mackay if you can get in. I stayed here a few times and always feel right at home at the Quest.
