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.

Stayed here for one night whilst on business in Mackay, hotel is located centrally & walking distance to many restaurants. Room was large, great with a little kitchen, good sized comfortable bed. Only downside was the noise from outside, windows should be double glazed as I was woken several times by outside noise. Overall a good stay & would stay... More

This hotel is always clean & well furnished. Large rooms with kitchenette, which when travelling lots is sometimes good to be able to either cook something yourself, or bring a light breakfast. King size bed is always appreciated. Secure car park that has a second lift is also a great benefit. I'll be back I'm sure.

Stayed in December and once again so pleased that we did. Room was immaculate and clean, and so comfortable. There was a great kitchen with everything if you wanted to stay in and cook. The bed was so comfortable and big for a hotel room. You feel like you are home away from home here and the staff are always... More

Were upgraded from a 1 br-suite to a 2 br-suite. Very spacious, clean and comfortable. The hotel was fully booked and still you did not hear any noise at all. I really appreciate this over anything else. Plenty of restaurants nearby for breakfast, as the hotel is right in the CBD. At night, of course, every door in the city... More

I stay in a lot of Quest properties in Victoria and basically they are pretty much the same. Good value for money. This property in Mackay is the exception. The one bedroom suites are much smaller than the average and being in Mackay, far more expensive. As one reviewer stated there is a lack of workspace in the kitchen and... More
