We had a couple of nights here recently. Reception staff were great. our motel room had everything needed but space with two people in the room, plus luggage, was limited. The architect was not too thoughtful in placing the bathroom sink along the wall directly opposite the entrance door so shaving etc has to be done in the room itself...

Rooms are quite spacious, mostly undercover parking, gym on site , staff very friendly, restaurant is also very good, coffee bar open all day . Some of the front rooms get a bit of traffic noise - if your a light sleeper ask for a room towards the back of the resort.

Well located hotel with a nice entrance, very helpful staff but the room was very disappointing. We had to shower wearing thongs! You need to improve the cleaning in your rooms. See picture of the toilet.

A great place to stay that is central and easy to find being on the main road in and out of Mackay. In saying that we could not hear any road noise at all in our room and we were to the front of the resort. The rates were fantastic and the room was spacious, modern and clean. The staff...

Have just stayed here for a week (work). Absolutely great, friendly and accommodating staff. Rooms are excellent and the hotel is generally kept in a lovely condition. Some rooms have a mini bar and some do not. As we were a large group, the restaurant did not offer a la carte - meals were part of the package so a...

A comfortable room and undercover parking outside the door. No traffic noise though the occasional aeroplane will fly overhead which for me was a bonus but not loud enough to disturb. Meals in restaurant delicious and friendly helpful staff. Air conditioning works well which is needed at this time of the year. Lovely pool and would happily stay here again.
