The friendliness of the staff. I arrived very early due to flight changes with Covid and they let me into my room at 8am which was incredible. The food is delicious and the walking tracks nearby are great. The view from my room was so beautiful.

The Website does not do this place justice. We were coming in late from Hervey Bay and there was not much accommodation available by the time we checked Wotif as we weren’t too sure if we were going to stop in Mackey or push on through. We decided to stop the night and made our selection based mainly on price but also by the general look of the place and location because we did not want to be on a main road due to the noise. When we arrived we were both quite surprised as the place was far more modern than expected and a lot bigger than the photos we saw. I did call ahead to make sure we could check in late and the lady said that the counter is attended 24/7. As we were making our way to our room, we passed the restaurant and were relieved that it was still open so we quickly dropped our bags off, briefly took in the view and ocean breeze from the balcony then headed straight back down for a meal. The food was delicious and the portions were generous. We chose to sit outside in the pool area to eat our meal as it was beautifully lit which provided a relaxing atmosphere but also to take in the beautiful breeze and we’re visited by a local possum which thrilled the kids. Overall we were not disappointed by anything and our stay was a welcomed break from a 1500 klm drive. The staff were so friendly and professional as well. If passing through Mackay, be sure to check this place out, you won’t be disappointed. The hotel is right on the beach. The restaurant also does breakfast.
