Clarion Hotel Mackay Marina
Renovated with good views ”
We paid for room 8 months ago and asked for a high room with a view , however they gave us level 2, when I checked in I asked for a higher room which they gave us. Room was renovated and clean , big bathroom including washing machine , kitchenette with very basic equipment, very comfy lounge. People were smoking on their balcony next door and I wofted into our room. Did not eat here, not that many places to eat locally. The area is industrial and there was a engine noise that went all night both nights we were there and as such we would not stay here again
Staying here again next trip. ”
Absolutely enjoyed my stay here. All the staff were friendly and eager to assist with any enquiry I had. And the views of the Marina = beautiful. Highly recommend
Relaxing by the harbour ”
Good spot to relax by the pool or look at the berthed boats in the harbour and out to sea. Nice and handy to a few restaurants and to a pub if you wish to hear local bands. We enjoyed our stay. There was a strange vibration to the building which couldn't be identified. We went in the quiet period so iften we felt like we were the only souls there. Overall a good stay.
WE only had a one night quick stay and the Clarion was situated close to the Mackay Surf club where our function was....Loved our room and our view Our room was clean and spacey. Loved the long bench in the bathroom And I want one of those lovely chairs that are in the room
Had a great stay at this hotel. Lovely room with a very comfortable bed. Good views, room had everything we needed. Food in the restaurant was a bit hit or miss, depended on what chef was on at the time. I would stay here again if we are ever in the area.
Yes our stay was pleasant room was clean cosy got your money value .very happy with a our stay and we would go back .
its a great hotel”
a very practical hotel, over looking a new marina handy to the beach and other resturants
A good harbour view and some good options without ”
Comfortable and clean, large room with a view , easy parking , easy checkin and checkout , lots to look at and amuse everyone at the harbour, close to town, Central point in the area. Lots of good seafood and entertainment close . Always a favourite
Nice place - as long as you have a vehicle”
I was very happy to arrive at the hotel about 24 hours later than planned due to Cyclone Marcia - I received a refund for my missed night and was upgraded to a room 3 floors above my son who was having his 23rd birthday - I guess management thought I did a good job to get to Mackay from Perth for only 24 hours. Great greeting at reception, nice attentive staff, good set up with pool, bar and Marina and walkway. Wish I could've spent 3 days there as originally planned. Can definitely recommend
Quick trip to Mackay”
For what was literally an in and out stay there was nothing to fault the property: checkin/checkout worked seamlessly; the room was well appointed and quiet; and, no problems with parking the rental car I had. It is close to my family so will stay there again next time I am in Mackay.
Great views overlooking the Marina”
Comfortable large rooms with small balcony overlooking the Marina. Staff excellent, buffet breakfast was delicious and plentiful. A walk up and down the marina leads you to a few restaurants and bar with live music. A great place to stay and use as a base for sightseeing.
Very nice hotel, good room size”
Lovely hotel, only thing to comment about was that there is a good and bad side regarding room allocation, both have views of marina, but one side has much better views than the other because of the industrial area you overlook.
Very happy with everything... fresh made cookies at check in were a bonus treat!
Luxury Hotel with few guests during winter season”
Stayed for one night and found the hotel was fine but very quiet due to the winter season.
A depressing place”
The hotel is depressing. We booked here as we were flying out from Mackay for our return back to the US after touring Australia for 3 weeks. We were devasted when we saw the hotel was in the middle of a power plant. The hotel was empty on a Sunday night however we were still given a sad room facing the power plant and maybe 20 degrees of the marina. The room and bathroom looked outdated. The only positive was that it was more spacious than average. We will never come back.
Nice View - Spa Suite”
We had a spa suite, which had a great view of the marina, but it is a long way out of town. Meals at restaurants on the marina are overpriced. The lounge in our room was a little worn and not very comfy. No chairs on balcony. TV's were a really good size and had a good range of channels. Breakfast in the restaurant was average with no view. Good location to go for a walk along the waterfront, even at night. Loved the whisper quiet air con in the bedroom. Function room in the hotel was used for a wedding and felt too conspicuous to go swimming with everyone from the wedding in the pool/BBQ area. Later in the night some noise travelled up to our room on 3rd floor particularly when they were packing up, so needed to keep door closed. Overall very enjoyable stay.
TIMES HAVE CHANGED & SO HAS THIS HOTEL”
We have stayed a number of times at this hotel since it opened. time before this we said we would never go back, this time we decided we definitely would not go back. We had a bed and breakfast package for 3 nights never went back for breakfast after the 1st one. Woeful buffet poached eggs were cold and just like hard boiled eggs. Food quality dreadful. dinner on 1st night was cold, Sad to see such a nice hotel go downhill. the harbour where it's located is like a ghost town.
The food was very average and well overpriced for the quality and portions. There is no bar area inside were you can sit and relax with a drink other than a few couches that just face a blank wall and muted tv. The bet isn't even open till 4 o'clock so you have to sit around waiting for something to do. The gym was a treadmill and a dusty mirror it shouldn't even be called a gym. The rates of the hotel was that of a 5 star hotel but with no social area other than the restaurant which lacked any firm of comfort. Unfortunately it's too far from Mackay centre to be able to enjoy Mackay city, you can get a taxi but your gonna have to wait twenty minutes. The bat staff we're brilliant though and easy to talk to.
Great view of the Marina”
It was short and sweet. The rooms are big and had a wonderful view of the Marina. Quite far from the center of the city, it would have helped if they had a shuttle to the mall for free. Restaurants beside the Marina very accessible and you can choose from a variety of cuisines.
