We booked on line and were unsure about location and the fact that it was a Motel. Having travelled by bus from Cairns to Mission Beach we did not have a car. WE arrived early in the day and met Barbara (owner) who welcomed us warmly and gave us a marvellous room (second floor) overlooking a wonderful tropical garden and... More

Hard to review because our experience was so mixed. On the positive side of the ledger, you get a good price ($100 a night), beautiful tropical gardens (room 111 was downstairs garden room), good sized room, nice carpet, excellent quality sheets and towels, comfortable two-seater couch and queen bed, zero traffic noise even though on main road, good looking crazy-paving...

I visited Mission Beach to look at purchasing a property. Mackays seemed to be the most central. I stipulated a quiet room on the online booking and was told on arrival that all the Garden Rooms had gone and I should be very happy to be given a Balcony Room. Not!! Had to carry my bag up a flight of... More

Our Motel has over 5500 persons visit us in the time we have owned Mackays, this is the first complaint about traffic noise, maybe I should put a sign out on the road and ask to be quite, people sleeping. We upgraded you to a Deluxe Balcony suite, at no extra cost, the garden room you booked, you would have... More

While working in Townsville we were required to travel to Mission Beach - there were several small government work parties already staying at Mackays so that was our first choice. Good government rate - rooms clean and tidy. The bathrooms are showing their age and the room I had 111 did not have a shower screen large enough to avoid... More

Thank you for your comments. Our Motel is 14 years old, went through cyclone YASI, no damage, the structure was built well before we purchased the Motel. Ceiling heights are at 2.1 meters, under the BCA we comply. Shower screen, we removed the screens as people break things, so we decided to remove the folding screens. All of our guests... More

We were lucky enough to book into the last available room, and were delighted with it. Spotlessly clean, comfortable beds and all the little extras you'd expect, for a reasonable price. I think the best part was opening the sliding doors onto a little patio, and being met by a fabulous tropical jungle garden! Well worth stopping here if you're... More

I stayed here for one night while on business in Mission Beach and the room was reasonably priced ($125 a night for a garden view room), clean, comfy and did indeed have a great garden view.
