Recently had need to utilise one of the 'special needs' rooms at this motel for an elderly father in law with mobility restrictions. Had a choice of rooms - both double/twin beds were available. Both rooms were of a large size and very comfortable. We also had our grandson with us this trip so had booked one of the three... More

We were a group of 34 travelling bowlers from Yamba, and this motel is one of the best I've stayed in. The room was big enough to have a party in and quiet, bathroom was huge, and well laid out. Beds were very comfortable, lovely scented linen. Breakfast was excellent, the staff very friendly. Totally enjoyable, and I would recommend... More

Last minute booking and what a lovely find. We were suprised by how quiet the rooms were and yet so central. Easy walk to Clubs and Pubs. Manager was very helpful. Car parking was on site and undercover.

Our friends booked this motel for us as we were coming to town for the local races, they told us this was a tidy place to stay. Upon checking in the man was extremely friendly & helpful with regard to places to eat. Our room was a pleasant surprise, large by motel standards, the bathroom you could have a party... More

I have stayed at the Mandarin Motel a number of times now as my grandfather lived in Macksville and so did my mum and we come to visit regularly. This last visit was for my grandfathers funeral and during a tough time it was nice to come back to a clean room and my bed mad each day. I have... More

Probably the most modern motel in the area. Large rooms with good beds and decent bathroom. Set one block back from the highway noise. Breakfast was fine with fresh food cooked to order. This is a good place to stay for a night or longer, close to local rsl and Chinese restaurant and the two pubs are all within 5... More

Very convenient location. Walking distance to the Ex Services club & other eateries. Good sized rooms, friendly staff. Clean. Comfortable bed. Bathroom looked like it had been recently renovated. Cars parked undercover. No view or outlook, but that was OK as only stayed one night as passing through. Pretty quiet as one street back from main road.

I've been on tour for the last month stopping in & out of hotels/motels. When I pulled into the Mandarin Motel in Macksville I was instantly surprised with the generous size of the rooms. The service from Marianne & the girls (whilst the bosses were away 😉), was really fantastic, nothing was a bother. I will be back on my... More

Have stayed here many times now as it is quiet and very close to the all amenities in Macksville. Big rooms, always very clean and your car is properly undercover should there be hail around. Nice breakfast cooked to order at a reasonable price. Professionally managed by friendly owners and staff.
