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. The staff were helpful and the pool... More

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.

Like the Quest on Gordon, these hotels are a mirror image for layout and decor. Modern roomy and comfortable apartment style with fully equipped kitchen and close proximity to the city centre and business district. Staff friendly and helpful and an excellent hotel for the business trip or in transit stay over. Had some trouble with the wifi but other... More

Lovely feedback, thank you. Yes like our sister property Quest Mackay on Gordon we are spacious and well-appointed. Our layouts are aimed at corporate guests travelling for work.

We stayed at this hotel in 2013 as a overnight stop. ROOM - The room was very spacey. We booked the studio which had a basic kitchen with most things that you would need. The TV was a bit small but overall the room was very nice. FACILITIES - There was a large deck off our floor that had a... More

A regular visitor and I love the warm, personal welcome. Bianca is awesome, she is so friendly and makes it so easy after a long day. Spacious rooms, always clean. Great location close to restaurants with good breakfast downstairs. Have tried many hotels in Mackay and keep coming back here for the service and the smiles.

The Quest is centrally located in Mackay close to cafes and restaurants and also has its own on-site restaurant. As other reviewers have noted, it is spacious, clean and has undercover parking. These are basic expectations for a one bedroom self-contained unit and at $200 per night, I thought it was expensive. The staff are helpful but weren't sure of... More

Hi Deb, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback, regarding the internet my apologies that it was not more clearly explained.

I really like the style of accommodation quest offers with the option of daily room service & chargebacks or dining on site, but self contained facilities like washing machines and a kitchen. This Quest was reasonable, but probably not the best I have stayed at. Customer service staff were really nice and accommodating-it was fully booked the week we stayed... More

Great rates offered over the phone. Very clean and tidy. Secure underground carparking a must in this city. The staff were polite and rooms kept very clean . No room service a bit of a downer, but its handy to a lot of little restaurants. Easy walking distance to shops. The late night clubbers and pub people quite noisy in... More
