Reviewed 24 June 2016

Didn't try the restaurant as we ate at the hotel across the road but all other aspects of the stay was acceptable. It was a little noisy but I expect that was from other guests and this was outside of the operators control. Great location for business.

We stayed at the Coral Cay, mainly because of the good restaurant reviews. We enjoy a buffet breakfast and the convenience of not having to go out for dinner. There are many accommodation types to choose from in Mackay, and all within a close proximity as the town is not large. The 2 bedroom apartment was clean and functional, and...

Checked in early as arrived in town on an early flight. Was charged an additional $30 for a room upgrade ??? not sure what the upgrade was ?? Tried the restaurant and was served inedible food for $39, sent it back. Not much care factor when I walked out. Bed was uncomfortable, towels small and thread bare, no condiments in...

Good Afternoon Jeremy, I am sorry you were unhappy with your stay and I wish there was something I could have done on check out to help you leave feeling better.

I drove along Nebo road, with so many motels to choose from - I got very lucky! This motel has been refurbished, the room was spotless and spacious. It overlooked the lovely pool area, and the receptionist was incredibly helpful. I was not right down the back of the motel, I got wi-fi coverage as it was close to the...

The service was super friendly especially at the front desk, and the rooms immaculate. The lagoon pool was well kept and very relaxing too. A beautiful place to stay and in a great destination. The pancakes are amazing.

Cheap rooms, modern and clean but very noisy on the ground floor with hundreds of diesel workers trucks coming in and out all night on weeknights up to about 1am. They then get back in them to go to work starting from 4.30am. Bright lighting outside the rooms means the curtains always have to be closed to get any sleep,...

Stayed overnight after ordering a double room. I have stayed here many times in the past during the resources boom and everything about this place was excellent. Now the $'s have disappeared from mining, so has the standard of the accommodation. Cutlery was dirty from the last guest. Aircon was very noisy and couldn't be used. No blankets. Reception staff...

It's been a year since I stayed here and unlike last time we were on a ground unit and boy was the noise horrific! Cars reversing doors slamming everything was amplified - not a nice experience if you want a quiet stay. Rooms are nice but go upstairs!

Upon check in I was greeted by very friendly and helpful staff. My room was basic, clean (smelled clean too) and well reflected in the asking price. I dined in the restaurant where the staff were also attentive and friendly. The restaurant prices are about what you'd expect to pay at a motel restaurant. My over all impression is off...
