Stayed here for work and options were limited in Mackay. Rooms were excellent and so were the staff. Special mention to Mel, Brianna and Ryanda who looked after us a treat, made me feel like I was at home. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel.

Checked into the Clarion last minute due to a flight cancellation, The staff were quick to help us all out and to setup rooms for the few dozen travellers left stranded in Mackay. We received dinner as a part of the cancellation policy and it was absolutely magnificent. The down to earth attitudes from the floor staff was amazing &... More

We just found some aspects of the stay if nothing else confusing. Our room had a magnificent outside balcony with excellent views of the both the marina and the... More

Exceptionally helpful and friendly staff and quality rooms. I travel extensively and rate this establishment as the one of the finest. The food was beautiful. the rooms were clean and fresh. a short stroll will also see you amongst 5 or 6 other quality restaurants.

Everything about this hotel is great. Clean, modern, friendly, helpful staff. Nothing was any trouble. We dined in the Captains Table room for my sisters 40th. The food was great and it was nice to have a private room. I especially love the view of the marina from our room. Thank you Michael for your hospitality.
