From the moment I booked the service was great with a quick confirmation and follow up emails. The room was immaculately clean and comfortable. Hunter was a very welcoming host and cooked me a yummy breakfast, looked after my bags and ordered a taxi for me when it was time to leave Mackay. The location is very handy too.

Hunter was amazingly kind and helpful. The room was lovely and the air-conditioner was already on before I arrived. The shower was brilliant and the best shower in a motel I've stayed in. The motel itself was very quiet and safe. Would definitely return and stay at the motel again.

Absolutely loved this beautiful little motel. The owner couldn't do enough to help us and make our stay awesome. He really went above and beyond and was always helpful with a smile. He also has the most gorgeous friendly old dog who loves a good pat. Cannot fault this place at all and highly recommend. Hard to find such quality...

As far as motels go, this one is top notch. Myself and two other backpackers were here for three nights as cyclone Debbie came through town, and we had to escape Airlie beach. The motel rooms were clean, cosy and very well equipped... a toaster, microwave, fridge, utensils and plates, coffee/tea/milk, AND wifi... what more could you want? The washroom...
