We recently returned to Mackay for a few days to chose to stay at the Ocean International again due to the convenient location and proximity to Far Beach. The staff were very friendly, our room was clean and well serviced and our meals were spot on. If I could make any suggestions for improvement, it would be that car parking... More

Our daughter chose the Ocean International as the venue for her recent Wedding Ceremony and Reception. We were very pleased with the way both were handled. Very professional and their events organiser Hanna made sure every possible base was covered making the day run smoothly with minimum stress even though the weather decided to make things difficult for a garden...

I have stayed here a few times now for work, including meetings/conferences in the function room. The staff are always friendly and helpful. Rooms are very large and open out onto a balcony. Plenty of hot water, comfortable king beds and flat screen tv with some Foxtel channels. The decor is fine, however the small plastic table and chairs on... More

An absolutely excellent hotel. Excellent location. Excellent friendly and efficient staff. Excellent comfortable rooms. Excellent delicious food. BUT: BEWARE: Do not leave anything in your car which is easy to steal. I learned the hard way and lost 95% of everything I had bought the day beforehand which had a devastating impact on plans and almost left me financial ruin.... More

I liked this hotel because it's nice, quiet and next to the beach. We had a family room on the top floor and it was very relaxing. The rooms are tired and could use freshening up but were clean and comfortable nevertheless. One single bed was placed very oddly with the head of it under a bench... We didn't need... More

I was very lucky to have the refurbished room, love it. They all makes me feel like a Princess it's every girls dream, especially coming from a long drive from home.

Stayed for work and very surprised. Older resort in a great location. Quiet surroundings and direct access to open beach. The resturant is really good. Thank you Abby and Kevin for looking after me. A great business meeting in the board room. Rooms are large and quite comfortable.

Enjoyed our stay here, friendly staff and good service. Property is a bit tired but comfy. Right on beach two minutes walk and you are there! Breakfast is reasonably priced and fresh! Good parking and 24hr reception, four minute drive and you are in city. Restaurant, pool and function room. Child friendly,

I have been staying here for many years......unfortunately the rooms are showing their age....the redeeming factor..is the great food. I took clients to the restaurant...the food was great and the service friendly.... For the rooms alone I would rate 3, but the lovely food gives it another point...so overall a 4😀

I have only stayed here once and it was a comfortable stay, but I have dined here 3 times when travelling on business and every time the meal has been wonderful. If I was in town for a short stay I would get a room, but given the opportunity I would dine here every night.
