Stayed here for a night whilst in town on business. Service, room, staff were lovely and the breakfast, which is included, was lovely. This is my hotel of choice from now on for staying in Mackay. So near to the shops, cinema, restaurants too, although why would you go out when you can eat in at Romeo and Juliets.........a MUST... More

The Shakespear Motel is situated in a quiet location off the main highway, perfectly located close to the town centre and a couple of streets away from the Arts Centre. On our arrival we received a very warm welcome from Linda who was very informative on the local attractions to see. Our room was spacious, spotless clean and tastefully furnished.... More

Booked for 3 of us to dine in Romeo and Juliet's restaurant which is part of the Shakespeare Motel. The ambience is great and the staff attentive but discreet and unfussy. The owner, Linda is a wonderful host. The menu is varied and caters for all tastes, the food was superb and beautifully presented. This is a real gem and... More

We stayed here recently when travelling north from Brisbane. What a find , this is such a lovely motel. The staff were all helpful and welcoming, the rooms spacious and spotlessly clean, and we loved the soft and fluffy bath towels. It's location is also handy to town but at the same time nice and quiet being off the highway.... More

I spent a night at this lovely motel. It's about 20 walking minutes away from the city centre and located in a quiet street. I had a big and clean room. Comfy bed. The staff is really friendly, easy going and helpful! Excellent food at the motel's restaurant. Thanks

Good Hotel! closer to town and a lot quieter than my previous stays in Mackay. Hotel is off the main highway and gets nice and quiet at night. Room was clean and comfortable and the food there was great. It is a slightly older establishment but has everything you expect for the price and more. Service was also great.

We arrived at the Mackay airport for a weekend away. On the drive to the Shakespeare Motel the taxi driver said that we had made a wise choice, as the motel is in a quiet position, with regards to traffic and aircraft noise. What a wonderful surprise – excellent customer service when checking in with friendly, happy and informative staff.... More

After six days on the road and six motels, my only regret is that I am only staying here for one night. This motel is not on the A1 Highway - which is a plus ! My room (Queen Exec) was really the best I have had this trip. And not only was the room absolutely tops - but the... More
