Mackay is a mining hub in Queensland, and as such has a very competitive (and relatively pricy) Hotel/Motel market. I have nothing but praise for the Alara. Although set up as a motel, the facility definitely has a hotel feel to it.
Great service with being able to order room service whilst I was driving down, so was hot and fresh for my arrival. The room was clean, tidy and comfortable. Just bare in mind that prices are a little higher, however in my opinion it is worth it. Will stay again.
