Our special thanks to Alan and Lillian Cooper who generously donated towards the Qld Black Dog Ride appeal in support of Depression and Suicide Awareness. We were made most welcome and the Motel was a great place for our group to overnight. All bikes were under cover and the location easy to find. The Restaurant was also terrific and we... More

Room was clean and well set out, beds comfortable. Staff were very friendly and welcoming and put our heating on before we arrived as it was cold.! lovely looking pool (too cold to try) had a laundry as well and everything was close by including restaurants. Under cover parking was an added bonus

Happy to recommend for anyone to stay here, great location, handy to eatery's, pubs but still a quiet location with no road traffic noise at all. Had 3 rooms and they were all good size rooms. The benefits of having a microwave in each room is the finishing touch you need.

New managers are very welcoming and nice people. I would fully recommend this motel for comfort , convenience and value for money. Having the Chinese restaurant on site is an added advantage for people who do not want to drive.

Love this place for its location and reasonable rates - just on outskirts of the City Heart!!! Only hundreds of metres from some of the best restaurants in Mackay - Sorbello's, Cactus Jacks, Hog's Breath, BURP & The Dispensary. Clean and liveable accommodation. Even got a free upgrade to a King Room. Staff were friendly. Will definitely stay again.

Clean and comfortable accommodation. Room / bathroom has been renovated. Close to shops / shopping centre, fast food, cafes and sit down dining, yet in a quiet location, so peaceful night's sleep. Friendly and helpful staff.

I stayed here after Friday night drinks with some colleagues. The location is very convenient as I could safely walk back to my room at the end of the evening. My room was at the rear of the motel and was very quiet. The room was spotless too, which is a huge plus! The bed was too firm for my... More

Owners were very nice and the unit was quiet hence a good nights sleep. Although room was very clean it did seem a little dated compared to other motels we stay in with a comparable price. Air conditioner was noisy and in hindsight we should have as for another room because of this. Overall though would stay here again.

The room was clean, spacious, and obviously recently renovated. The air con unit however was very noisy - to the point that I was not able to leave it on during the night as it kept me awake. The only problem was there were no screens on the windows so did not feel comfortable leaving them open. Luckily it was... More
