My husband and I were travelling through Mackay Qld on 16/11/2015 and we stopped at Reef Resort Motel for the night, the room was very clean and comfortable with enough room to move around in, and we definitely got value for our money. On our return trip on 25/11/2015 we decided to stay there again Very would definitely recommend Reef... More

Very clean, bathroom is very spacious. The owner/managers are lovely and extremely helpful. Beautiful pool, and a nice cafe for brekky. One thing to consider is dual levels, with stairs only (no lifts). This may present challenges to older travellers with heavy luggage. Check what level you're on when booking. Other than that, nice place, with a location close to... More

Wonderful stay! Friendly staff, great value for money right across the road from function centre for wedding in Nebo Road, Mackay. Staff gave us an upgrade & will definitely stay again! Very close to Mackay Botanic Gardens and also close to the city. We loved staying here!

We stayed here for a week while visiting family and friends. The room we stayed in was nice. It felt like I'd taken the dolorean back to the 90's but the bed was comfortable, the bathroom was clean and everything worked and it was quite cosy. My only complaint is the ants. Four of our six nights here I was... More

Had a one night's stay for passing through the area. I found it clean and well presented. It give a good value for money. I liked the idea of a comment slip in the room, to allow you to point out any elements that need attention.

The air conditioners weren't on when we arrived so room was quiet warm and took a bit to cool down. The second tv remote didn't work and there was... More

This motel was pleasant. The evening meal was really nice, I had fish and salad. The room was clean and traffic noise was not an issue. When I checked in, the lady on reception was pleasant and courteous. Nothing to write home about, but did the job.

Great place to stay for the night while driving through. Clean rooms, showers, perfect parking and lovely staff. The location is great if your just passing through as it's situated on the Bruce highway. For once I have found a motel that serves amazing food too! This will be my regular motel during mackay stop overs.

The facitily is quite dated but that said, everything worked, the bed was comfortable, and there was no traffic noise even though it is on... More
