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 motel is located on Nebo Road in a forest of motels ranging from the downright dingy to quite upmarkey establishments. I picked this one at random and was pleasently surprised at what I got. 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

We were passing through Mackay and looked for a reasonable motel at a reasonable tariff this fits the bill comfy bed and good sized room. Shamrock hotel opposite has good meals so you can park the car, enjoy a beer and a good meal.

We stayed here one night. Although the spa bath was good, the room itself had a rather unpleasant smell. The WiFi did not work and the cable channels did not work on the main TV. We would look for somewhere else if we return to Mackay. .

Went to Mackay to visit family. Stayed at Reef Resort in Mackay. The service was excellent. Room was fresh and clean. Loved the pool. Was an awefully hot day, so a refreshing swim in the pool was excellent. The room was comfortable. All amenities were as we expected. Enjoyed our stay. Will definitely stay there again.

The best word for this accommodation is 'adequate' - it is reasonably clean, comfortable and in a central location. To call it a resort is a bit of stretch though! The service from the front desk is warm and friendly. Some attention to detail from the staff that clean the rooms would be helpful (for example, the lightbulb in my... More

This hotel was very clean and spacious. The bed was comfortable and having a separate area with a tv and couch is definitely a bonus. The spa bath was amazing and great way to relax. the service was excellent and the grounds were very tidy. Would stay here again.

Clean rooms, great service. Rooms need updating though. Kitchen is extremely accommodating. Arrived late and they kept the resturant open for us. Bed was a little hard. Motel served it's purpose. Would only stay here fir business. Definitely not a holiday resort.

We went to Mackay as my son was playing Rep football. Knowing of this motel for sometime I decided to give it a go. On arrival the reception was cordial, the room was comfortable and more importantly very clean. The motel is in a great position being close to shops and a pub across the road. We were a little...
