This hotel had beautiful spacious rooms with a clean modern bathroom. Walking distance to shops and the river. All in all very comfortable and we would definitely stay here again. Only problem we had was that we couldn't get onto the wifi as per instructions in the room but we didn't discuss this with the staff.

Thank you for the lovely review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay. It's a shame you didn't call reception, we would have explained that you sometimes need to restart your device and if that doesn't work, we are happy to re-set the router for you. Your feedback is very much appreciated and we hope that you choose to stay... More

Staff very helpful and friendly. Room clean, tidy and spacious. Nice and close to town, food outlets and shopping. A good amount of parking available (large vehicles have to park out front though). Quiet area.

Thank you so much for your kind review. Cooking facilities are available in both our studio and family rooms. Unfortunately due to fire regulations, only tea and coffee making facilities are available in all our other rooms. We would love to see you again. More

This was our third stay at the Mandarin Motel and it's still as good as the first time 5 years ago. The rooms are huge with plenty of room to move. Great spacious ensuite. Excellent location close to RSL and shops. Enjoyed breakfast daily.

We have stayed here the past few years on our way to the Sydney Mardi Gras event from Brisbane. We make a group booking (months in advance!!) and find the staff fantastic, parking a breeze, great local pub on the river with amazing meals just a walk around the corner and the rooms are always clean, tidy and comfortable.

We stayed here for one night travelling home south. Very comfortable and very quiet, room was very clean and modern. Very close to restaurants and club. We had our small dog with us and they were happy to accommodate for him as well. We will definitely be staying again.

Stopped here for one night travelling south to Sydney. Very clean and tidy and very large room with brand new bathroom and kitchenette. Hosts friendly and welcoming. In the town centre walking distance to everything, including RSL club with playground for dinner. Also there is an indoor pool nearby but we didn't visit.

Decided to overnight at Macksville on our trip to Tweed, two chooses, motel on the highway or we found the Mandarin a street off the highway and behind the ex-services club. Reception was friendly and helpful. We got to our room and it was aired, clean as a new pin and all facilities neatly stored in pull-out pot drawers. Tea... More
