After visiting their website & seeing the great images enticing us to "Enjoy a High Tea in Mackay", we decided to drop by and enjoy a treat before driving back to Airlie Beach. Unfortunately we were only on-site for about 2 minutes as they fail to mention in their promotion that High Tea isn't available without pre-booking at least 24... More

Thank you for your feedback and taking time to submit a review. It was disappointing to hear you were unable to experience our tasty treats. To avoid this happening to others we have now rectified our website to mention bookings are essential. More

We held a two day conference here recently. Although the hotel is older we didn't have any problems. Having our workshops upstairs and the vendors (and food) downstairs wasn't a real issue. It got people off their butts. The staff here are amazing! Hannah helped us organise everything and it was terrific. The food was fantastic! (Definitely order the Fijian... More

I stayed here on business - we were facilitating at a training session here for 2 days. The hotel is nicely situated on the beach although it's not exactly a swimming beach, still a very pleasant outlook and great for a walk. The rooms are OK - clean with everthing you need. The food was terrific - very nice breakfast,... More

Stayed there for a conference. Very good service, excellent food and great outside pool area. The rooms are dated but they have everthing you need. They were serviced everyday. Also had free internet which was really helpful. Solid place.

we found the hotel on the internet as we were travelling down the highway and needed a place for one night. the photos on the internet looked ok but when we checked we realised that the whole building was in need of modernising, its very dated and old fashioned. for one night it didn't really matter as it was clean...

I’ve stayed here in the past a few times, but it’s been at least a couple of years since I lasted stayed here, so I was interested if it had changed at all. The place is somewhat dated, but the rooms are really clean and staff incredibly nice and concerned with what you think. The food in the restaurant is... More

Right on a beatiful stretch of beach, and all the rooms front onto the ocean. It had a resort-like feel. I travel to Mackay often for a weekend, and this is definitely going to be my first choice in accomodation there!

Stayed as a large group, from first contact could not fault the staff, accommodating from accommodation booking to arranging dinner. whilst it is an older hotel, it was clean , beds were comfortable, TV large and new. We did have a high floor with a lovely view. Perfect position if you want a quiet away from the bustle and traffic... More

Stayed here with a large group (70 plus). Very friendly staff, looked after the group dinner using a separate function room. Rooms are large but a little dated. Location is out of town but a nice setting on the beach. Great swimming pool for the kids. Upper floors may see the ocean but the lower ones are blocked by trees.
