I hosted a 6 day conference here and the staff and service were second to none. Everyone was made to feel welcome and it felt like a home away from home. The food was delicious and they catered for everyone. The creme brûlée and warm lamb salad were a highlight. The hotel is impeccably clean and had a fully set up conference room. My room over looked the beach and was incredibly quiet and had some great nights sleep. I even asked for a cider and they didn't have my favourite which wasn't a problem as there was plenty of choice and the next day they especially got it for me!!! I felt so special. Thank you so much for a wonderful time. I will be back!

Very quiet,unlike motels on Nebo Road, it is not under the flight path to the airport.
The staff are vet friendly, while still being professional, the food is spectacular and there is a very good choice. I stay in motels on business regularly and mark this as one of the best in North Qld.

Room Tip: Ask Hannah, then you can't go wrong. She is lovely!!!

We stayed here for our 40th Wedding Anniversary night as the accommodation costs are a lot cheaper than a DUI fine. Our room 4.4, was clean quite spacious and had a great view. The overall thought is that this grand lady is suffering a little from the ravages of time. She is still a fine Dame but the signs of old age are starting to appear. The staff are of the highest quality and always had a smile on their face. A sure sign to me that they enjoy their work. The hotel has always had a problem with being out of the central business district but it still has a lot to offer travellers.

This hotel would have got 4 stars from me except they have not joined the 21st century when it comes to their financial transactions. In this day and age of an almost cashless society I find it insulting to be informed that there is a surcharge applied to your account if you pay by credit card. Who carries large amounts of cash with them to settle their bills? None that I can think of. It is a simple marketing matter to increase your charges by the amount of this ridiculous impost and allow guests to pay their account quickly without the embarrassment of finding this surcharge on your bill.

It may cost a lot of money to bring this good hotel back to its former glory but it costs nothing to bring your accounting practices into the 21st century.

Hmmm over priced for what it is, the room was very clean but old and a tiled floor, no carpet!?

The staff were very nice and the restaurant had no atmosphere but beautiful food.

Also it is some distance from town, and near a fairly crappy beach.

Stay here for business when travelling to Mackay. Nice place, clean and the hotel restaurant was excellent. Would recommend to anyone who needs to stay in Mackay. Also very close to the airport. Reception staff very friendly.
