I had to travel almost 3 hours from our remote town to Sarina. It was late when we had to leave so we decided to stay in Mackay for the night. It's safer than dodging Kangaroos in the twilight. We have stayed at MGS before and often paid a lot less than the asking price of $259 for one weeknight, We weren't even there for 14 hours as we had to leave at 4 am for work. The rooms are never clean, the bar staff are less than competent. I don't understand why, in a one bedroom suite, with 2 rooms and 2 TV's, they only have one remote. My husband and I were constantly having to go from room to room to get the remote to change the tv channel. What is the point of that? It's actually cheaper to stay in a luxury hotel suite on Hamilton Island than it is to stay at MGS with a lovely view of a crappy car park. Please take note: We are not all miners! I am a kitchen hand earning very little money, but because of where I live, Mackay is our nearest town... a 3 hour drive away! I spent more than a weeks wage just to get an x-ray and sleep in a bed for 8 hours.
Lift your game!
