Clarion Hotel Mackay Marina

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Clarion Hotel at Mackay marina is a must if anyone wants good quality accomodation in Mackay. We had a 1 bedroom Ocean view spa suite. the appointments were excellent with large bedroom, in the bathroom spa bath with marina view also seperate shower, and a living area with kitchen and lounge area. The very best of apartment living we have experienced.

I do a lot of regional travel and this is my favourite hotel in the area. At the end of a long flight or drive around the mines, I have the Clarion to look forward to. Beautiful rooms, a walk around the harbour, good quality room service, and an early night. Perfect!

Spend a week at the Clarion - level 7 Premier room. Fantastic view of the Bay. Patrolled , protected beach 400 metres away. perfect for a swim - temperature just right.Had a swim at 10 am in July ! Winter in my home city of Adelaide at 13 degrees.

A bit of luxury after the previous accommodation, with a very spacious room, comfortable furniture, and a big, clean bathroom. Nice views over the marina, too. Easy parking. The only downside was the distance from town. And the kitchen didn't have a toaster - only a kettle and microwave.

Bar staff are lovely and always had a smile! Jared Dittman had the best drink selections an gave us a wide range of options, great entertainment with drink making and Kept us laughing and were the others also had amazing service. At times Our group felt famous ha ha as one lovely lady had walked out drinks to us on her own will with a beautiful comment to make our night even more enjoyable! Just awesome and comfortable !! It was hard To Leave at close :(

I have a shortlist of things I look for when I away on work. Quiet room, comfortable bed, desk to work at and a comfortable chair to relax in. The Clarion had all these and more. I had a great nights sleep in a large and comfortable bed. The desk/table to work at was fine and the armchair to relax in was great. Add to that there was a balcony that looked out over he marina where I sat with my feet up and soaked up the atmosphere it all made my stay really good. Top it off with helpful staff and I look forward to staying at the Clarion again.

Lovely room over looking the Mackay Marina. Room was spacious and had a mini kitchenette, including a microwave oven. Room included a hair dryer. On,y complaint was there were no mugs in the room. Had lots of thoughtful things you could purchase in room for the sailing contingent like deodorant, Panadol etc. Great location walking distance to several restaurants

I can not speak highly enough of this hotel. Hubby and I treated ourselves to the one bedroom superior spa suite which overlooked the marina. We were thrilled with our rooms as they hot the warm morning sun and not the searing heat of the afternoon sun. Well it seemed reasonably hot to us. Overlooking the marina was brilliant and we had a lovely balcony to sit out on as well. What made this hotel so much better than any we have been in is the strict no smoking policy. We could sit on our balcony and not havd to enhale anyone's smoke! There is an area outside downstairs though for smokers. Shall I go on? The staff were very friendly.. professional.. helpful.. couldn't do enough for you. The little touches of the cookie jar on the reception desk for guests was wonderful .. and we snuck down and grabbed one once in awhile to have with our cuppa. There was also a baby grand piano in the foyer and we were lucky enough to listen to one of the guests playing as we snuggled into one of the cosey chairs available. Just go there.. you will love it. We were there for 7 days and stayed on room 5007. Thank you everyone for such a comfortable stay. And oh! I must not forget to mention .. the rooms are serviced daily!!!

Thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality and facilities. Kerry and Nikita very helpful at a time of a family bereavement , very much appreciated. This would be our stopover point in Mackay. Steve and Penny.

An amazing stay, the one bedroom apartment overlooking the marina made for a wonderful relaxing stay, great room service food and service. The close proximity to all the restaurants along the marina front was great to have a wide choice of cuisines, lunch and dinner. Our apartment was spacious and clean, with a small kitchenette and a laundry, the bathroom had a large spa bath with a view over the marina. In all it was very relaxing and the staff were great, especially seeing our flights were cancelled and we didn't arrive until the morning after. Highly recommended!
