The Mandarin Motel in Macksville, NSW, is my accommodation preference when visiting the Nambucca Valley. The rooms are spacious, clean and quiet, and the service offered by management and staff is excellent.

Always a good pit stop en route to QLD as it is around half way to the Gold Coast. I have stayed here around 7 times with my kids. It is always spotlessly clean, well appointed and most importantly comfortable. Staff are friendly. Breakfast (at additional reasonable cost) is good too. Car parking underneath is convenient and secure. Within walking... More

I would strongly advise not making this a hotel you arrive at without pre booking .They charged a massive 189 per night for a room that was nothing special.I am not happy getting worked over and I visit this area regularly ... I will go to Nambucca next time.Cheap shot i felt

We were one couple in a group of thirty car club members. Our room was spacious, spotless and everything you could require was provided. Bed was wonderfully comfortable. A lot of attention to detail, including varied cuppa facilities and reading material. We found the staff very helpful, friendly and attentive. The Hot Marmalade Brekky Room cooked breakfast was wonderful. Location... More

The Mandarin Motel is situated in the heart of town so central to just about everything you need. The rooms were spacious and very clean - with little to no chemical usage it's ideal for sensitive skin and noses. The owners were lovely and attentive when required. The parking is undercover and adequate and the rates are reasonable though I... More

Staff - very friendly and helpful. Motel - In excellent condition. Bed was a little too soft (not the best for a sore back :) ) but vey comfortable. There was nothing we could fault in the motel at all. very much worth the price you pay. We would definitely stay there again without a doubt.

I must be living in another world. My biggest disappointment was that the reception at this motel was abrupt and unpleasant. There was no possibility of a toaster or microwave (motel policy) and somewhat awkward parking with restricted vehicle height clearance and access. It seemed quite expensive when compared to other motels we have stayed at elswhere for what it... More

We had excellent service from the friendly staff at Mandarin Motel. Would definitely stay here again and recommend this to all families. We had very comfortable beds for everyone in the family, central location, yet not on the main street. Within walking distance of Graffity Cafe with great food. A variety of meal options in the area.

We had a studio room which was extremely spacious, and included a separate bedroom. A balcony opened on to the street, noticed some other rooms had small balconies which opened onto car park. No traffic noise from highway, very peaceful second night, Good Friday night had a few noisy locals about but not terribly late. This was the most comfortable... More

Another pleasant stay at the Mandarin on our way to Sunshine Coast. Once again we found our room to be clean and quiet. We were warmly welcomed even though we arrived at dinner time will definitely stay again .
