we had our 50th wedding anniversary in one of their function rooms and found the service impeccable. The dinner for all our family and friends was well organized and the chef should be complemented for the quality of the food.

We loved our short stay at the Ocean International. We were driving south and having never been to Mackay we booked the Ocean International online. The room was large, 100% spotless and very comfortable. A fully stocked mini bar and quality coffee anf tea were very un expected. The staff were a absolute delight and could not have been more...

I have stayed here numerous times during business trips. Staff are always friendly and courteous, rooms are a little bit dated but spacious and comfortable. It is just a close walk to the beach. Best of all is the restaurant, I always eat here rather that go out and and it is highly rated and rightly so, never had a... More

I cannot say enough about the friendliness of the staff. They were more than helpful to us. The room was large and extremely clean but it is very old and in need of a major refurbish. There are tiled floors and whoever was staying above us kept us awake with their heels clicking away all night. I think it is... More

Rooms are clean but could do with updating as they feel old. No WiFi in rooms, very disappointing. Staff are very pleasant and work hard to make you feel welcome. Galleons Restaurant menu was ordinary and the food is not cooked well at dinner. I had a steak cooked medium and it was chewy. Breakfast menu is OK, but room... More

I hosted a 6 day conference here and the staff and service were second to none. Everyone was made to feel welcome and it felt like a home away from home. The food was delicious and they catered for everyone. The creme brûlée and warm lamb salad were a highlight. The hotel is impeccably clean and had a fully set... More

Very quiet,unlike motels on Nebo Road, it is not under the flight path to the airport. The staff are vet friendly, while still being professional, the food is spectacular and there is a very good choice. I stay in motels on business regularly and mark this as one of the best in North Qld.

We stayed here for our 40th Wedding Anniversary night as the accommodation costs are a lot cheaper than a DUI fine. Our room 4.4, was clean quite spacious and had a great view. The overall thought is that this grand lady is suffering a little from the ravages of time. She is still a fine Dame but the signs of... More

Hmmm over priced for what it is, the room was very clean but old and a tiled floor, no carpet!? The staff were very nice and the restaurant had no atmosphere but beautiful food. Also it is some distance from town, and near a fairly crappy beach.

Stay here for business when travelling to Mackay. Nice place, clean and the hotel restaurant was excellent. Would recommend to anyone who needs to stay in Mackay. Also very close to the airport. Reception staff very friendly.
