Having never stayed in a motel before I was a little nervous about what to expect. However I was pleasantly surprised by this motel. The couple who run it are extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms had plently of space to put your things and the beds were comfortable. The bathroom had been renovated and were clean, our beds were... More

The motel is showing its age however the room we stayed in was down the back and was spacious and big enough for the 3 of us. The room was clean and was not too bad for the price. Lucky for us not a lot of people were staying there as the swimming pool is extremely small for a motel.... More

Was not game to open any cupboards, looked like they would fall apart or get some disease from them. Complained to woman at front desk, more or less was told too bad, so... More

Stayed as part of group attending conference. Good clean rooms with desk space, large TV & efficient aircons. Ladies would have appreciated hair dryers after excellent showers, iron in laundry OK, towels changed daily. Didn't hear any traffic noise. Managers very friendly & helpful with directions & hints. Would definitely stay again.

Stayed for 3 nights with my 2 sisters. Could do with some TLC and some repairs needed - towel rail broken and leaking taps in vanity but clean sheets and towels, Overall cleaning of unit could have been done better. Expensive at $115.00 p/n but I guess with the mining industry that is what you have to pay. On checking... More

No hairdryer, no iron. Cheap and old fashioned bedding. Shower still had hair on the tiles from the last customer. When dropping off the key the manager was snarky because I interrupted his cup of tea. It's a pity everything is so expensive because of the mines. Certaintly below my expectations

And they have the nerve too call it deluxe. Not even a... More

Its hard to find reasonably price accommodation in Mackay, especially during the week. This place is clean and tidy and had well priced meals meals in the restaurant. The managers have a friendly and humorous personality. The drinks are cheap as chips in the restaurant too.

We recently stayed to watch my son play cricket. The room was clean, the pool is a spa pool. The breakfast was cold on arrival to the room. The Shamrock Hotel is located across the road and shops are a short walk away.
