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

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. Our complimentary option simply runs at a slightly slower speed than our option available to be purchased. Thank you for acknowledging our friendly and helpful staff we pride ourselves on our service. We look... More

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

Stayed here before, really nice friendly staff, no need to go anywhere else when you stay in Mackay. Great location, right is the middle of the town. The 1 bedroom self contained room was well set up and had everything you need.

I recently stayed at the Quest Mackay in a studio room. I have stayed at many Quest hotels and love them for the whole familiar experience that they offer. However, my recent stay in Mackay was on State of Origin night and was one that has raised serious alarm bells from a security perspective. At about 1:30am we were awoken... More

Thank you so much for your feedback, we strongly believe that feedback is a vital in this industry. We are very disappointed that this incident occurred and it impacted your stay with us. As with all Quest properties they are individually franchised and you should have been connected to the franchisee or general manager after hours. Guest safety is paramount... More

The folks at quest have certainly nailed the plain sanitized cold vibe. Everything is like new but seems very budget. Good location comfortable bed are pluses. Service was very limited but good. Air con vent over the bed is a mistake.
