Over the past number of years I have stayed at the Shakespeare International probably a dozen times. It's well located for just about anywhere you may need to go in Mackay. The staff have always been unfailingly welcoming upon arrival and the one occasion I had an issue with my room it was attended to immediately. Yes, it's getting older... More

Friendly and very helpful staff both over the phone and face to face. Couldn't do more for you. Quiet and clean and value for money. Nothing was too much trouble to them. Enjoyable feed at Romeo & Juliet Restaurant

We stayed for 2 nights. And as a travel agent - I can honestly say ...this is the worst place I've ever stayed in. It is no more than a glorified 2 star. - Waking up to ants crawling over me in the bed - Freezing cold shower..they're way of fixing...told us to shower in another room (instead of moving... More

Stopped here overnight before heading to Townsville. Great clean motel with free WIFI and friendly staff who greeted us at reception. Air conditioner, nice work desk made things easier, very comfortable queen size bed.

I have been a very frequent visitor to Mackay for 15yrs now and have stayed at nearly all the Hotels/Motels that Mackay has to offer. On average I spend 2 nights per fortnight there. Mike and his team treat you like family and go out of their way to help. You will no doubt find much nicer accomodation in Mackay,... More

The motel is your standard comfortable motel style. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, a full mini-bar is provided, but the best bit is that the service is fantastic - nothing is too much trouble. And the restaurant - best food I've had in ages, and would beat many Brisbane restaurants.
