Thanks for your review and so pleased you enjoyed your stay. So sorry you had some parking issues, we share your frustrations with some vehicles being in the middle of two parks. We take on board your concerns and will review adding painted lines, hopefully that may assist us all. Thanks again and look forward to seeing you next visit to Mackay

I love how it was no problem for them to clean our room after my daughter had spewed on the floor. I offered to.pay for extra cleaning and they declined. The breakfast was yummy and the service was very friendly. We will definately stay there again!
