My family and I stayed here overnight. The staff who greeted me in the receptionist is very friendly and helpful. The room was clean. The bed and pillows are comfortable - (no smell which is really great!), wifi has good connection, the place is near to everything. It was a good stay - price is reasonable! If ever we need to go back to Mackay, we will come back to this place.

Lovely room, all the essentials and comforts. Pillows a bit too hard for me, but I found the soft pillows the next morning. Next time.

One Night Stopover

Pros: Easy to find, clean, tidy and spacious
Cons: Nothing
Location: We only stayed one night on our way through......
We stayed one night but it was really nice. Check in was so quick and easy and the lady at the front desk (I didn't get her name) could not have been friendlier. She told me about their in room menu and then told me about places we could walk to to get some dinner. The room itself was clean, neat, tidy and spacious! I would absolutely recommend this place to family and friends. Thank you for a lovely stay!
