My daughter and I stayed in a deluxe queen room and for the price we paid we were amazed at how modern, clean and spacious it was. It also has a microwave, cutlery and crockery (unlike a lot of motels) and exceptional service!! WILL BE BACK!!

The rooms are fairly well appointed with some nice small touches that make you feel welcomed. The owners are very friendly and helpful they made reservations for our dinner next door at the Chinese restaurant. The... More

Very central location in Mackay. Close to a large number of shops, cafes, etc. and a major shopping centre only a few blocks away. Grounds (Carpark) was clean, but the area set aside for smokers, whilst clean, stunk. The room was clean with all the normal appliances. Overall, a very pleasant stay.

As I had arrived early, he allowed me to check in early, about mid-day, which is great customer service. He also offered to book a taxi for me to get me to the airport. I requested... More

The location is suitable for nearby shopping centres and cafes and such. Video Ezy and Gelato just around the corner. Clean rooms with excellent room service. Great hospitality from management. Hunter in particular is a champion. Certainly was a satisfying stay.
