“Friendly place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

Just spent 3 days here. Andrew and Leanne were great hosts, very friendly and accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble. Rooms were spotless and everything you need is provided. Bed was very comfy. Location is right on Nebo Road but we didn't hear any traffic noise at all.

The host Leanne and Andrew could not do enough for you. The room was spotless. I always find it hard sleeping in motels as the beds are always hard, same with the pillows. However here I slept like a log each nite. Do yourself a favour and order the big breakfast. Very nice.
Nothing seems a problem and very easy to chat to as if they have known you for awhile. Would differently stay agin and recommend this place to all.
I have traveled through the Middle East and all over the world. To have a mini bar that charges normal price was a shock. It was cheaper for me to use the mini bar then go to the shops.

We stayed for one night. We has car trouble and so arrived late. We rang them to tell them this and a very friendly lady told us no problem they would be there whenever we got there. When we arrived the gentleman at the desk was very friendly and helpful.
The room was very clean and well stocked. The bed were very comfortable. Being on the main road we were worried about traffis noise but though we could hear it it didn't bother us..
There were four of us and we all enjoyed our stay. We have to go back to Mackay in November and I hope there is a room available then.

Our favourite Mackay motel, under new management. Convenient, comfortable, spacious, spotlessly clean, very well appointed, very welcoming ...thank you Andrew!! One is aware of the noise from the traffic on Nebo Road in the mid evening but it does not unduly intrude. I slept like a log!
