Plenty of parking, nice room, good feed in the morning- breakfast room needs a TV. Operators were very nice people and very accommodating for myself and my vehicle. Would highly recommend this establishment.

This motel is of excellent value with near new toilet and shower. The room I stayed in was big with lots of room to move around. The motel is located one street back from Pacific Highway and is very quiet. The service was very good too. It is definitely of 4 star motel standard. One negative comment is that they... More

Stayed at the Mandarin for an overnight business trip. Room was big clean and quiet. Motel is setback 1 street behind the main road (Pacific highway). My first thoughts were it was going to be a sleepless night with traffic noise but instead was very quiet. Staff are great and breakfast options were cheap and tasty. Would stay again no... More

Clean Great Little Spot for stopover. We stayed one night on our way back to sydney from brisbane, the rooms were spotless the bed comfy, and our room had a spa which was nice to soak in after a days driving. It was very quiet, the room was very large for a motel room, overall we thought it was everything... More

This is a great budget hotel, rooms are modern, clean and well maintained. The staff were very friendly and eager to help. Its close to some of the restaurants in the area most of which charge back to the room. Would stay here again.

I have stayed at this Motel once or twice every year with my kids for the last 4 years and have never been dissapointed. It is always spotlessly clean, rooms are nice and most importantly the beds are excellent (no skimping at all on mattresses!)

Had driven up from Sydney for my nephew's engagement party. Had telephoned two weeks prior and booked 2 rooms, for myself, and my son and his partner. Directions on website clear and helpful. Rooms spacious, bathrooms modern and clean, beds comfortable. Quiet and away from highway. Staff friendly and helpful. Will use again!

Excellent room, lots of space and nicely finished. Plenty of lighting, room for luggage and lovely beds. My husband was impressed the tap and sink in the bathroom actually fit the kettle easily to fill up. We were next door to our son and his family and we had no idea our grandson took a while to settle after a... More

My wife and I were in Macksville for our niece's wedding. The reception was at the Macksville services club, which is only a block away, and the motel is away from the noise of trucks on the highway. Ideal location, and friendly, helpful staff.
