We have lived in Mackay for several years and have now moved away. We required accommodation for one night so chose The Windmill for its proximity to the Mater Hospital but we will never stay there again. The room was very tired, TV reception was poor, main light wasn't working, there was no outlook, the room only had one window... More

We celebrated our wedding at the facility on 27/ 12/15. The food was a smorgasboard bbq. All good. Plenty, & on time. But, our cake was out & gone so quick. No spoons left to eat it with , no serviette supplied to wipe creamy icing. Guests went back for seconds & the cake had been whisked away to the... More

We always use Windmill Motel when staying in Mackay. It's in a quiet location, away from traffic noise. The rooms are always clean, and tidy and very comfortable. I prefer the downstairs units because of ease of accessing from car park. They have their own restaurant and function centre, the restaurant serves some very nice meals. Staff are friendly and...

Lovely place to stay while in Mackay. The food is value for money & taste great. From the moment you walk through the door at the reception you feel welcomed. It's situated off all major roads on the northside of Mackay which makes it very quiet. All rooms are well maintained & very clean. Highly recommended this place to anyone... More

Stayed at The Windmill Motel while I was attending a family occasion in Mackay recently. From the moment I walked through the door into reception I was greeted with a smile, this happy atmosphere continued into the restaurant when a lovely young lady Lisa took care of my dining for the night. The food was as amazing as the atmosphere,... More

Stayed here because it was close to where I needed to go for work, but wont stay here again. The room although a large size and quite comfortable, had the smell of mustiness and damp which I could not seem to shift even with doors & windows open. I was on the ground floor & the shutters did not completely... More
