    We had to accommodate 11 family members, some of us wanted to share our rooms to make it cost effective, we ended up with 2 rooms that sleep 4 and 2 doubles. Gorriies (now Galaxy Mackay) turned out to be an amazing find. Newly renovated the rooms were spacious, comfortable and clean. I have been to other 'Refurbished' motels that...

    We recently passed through Mackay on our way further north &, after much searching of the internet & up & down the streets to try & pick the best place to stay for the night, returned to one of the first motels you will see on entry to Mackay. It is on the corner of Nebo Street & the main...

    My first review on Trip Advisor! I am staying in Mackay for work at the moment and my boss booked me into Gorries Motel. I am currently staying at this property for 2 weeks. I was a bit concerned when I first saw the pics of the place on this site but luckily the place has been rennovated. It doesn't...

    We were passing through Mackay last night on our way to Cairns and needed somewhere to rest along the way. After spotting a sign on the front gate exclaiming that the motel had been newly renovated, we decided to give Gorries Motel a try. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at our room. Despite the old red brick exterior...

    This place is filthy. We stayed because we were desperate for a rest but would've been better off staying in our car! The air conditioner has stuff growing on it and the bathroom is disgusting. The ceiling is parting company with the walls and the stink is almost unbearable. Any positive reviews would be a farce!!!

    This motel was recommended to us by the local Tourist Information Centre - perhaps because we said we said "We don't need anything special". I guess we got what we asked for. The reception lady was not very welcoming and the room was very old, very basic and needed a really good clean. It may be a few dollars cheaper...

    We stayed there for a friends wedding and the owners could not have been more friendly. They put on BBQ's for us and were so helpful in giving us tips of where to dine and places to check out. The property was very clean and the pool area was just great ! Great value for money we will definately be...

    The manager cheated me out of a night’s lodging. I checked in and paid for two nights. The following day I scraped my rental car on a trash bin that had been carelessly placed next to my parking space (ended up costing me $1,100). When I complained to the manager, she gave me a bunch of attitude, threatened to call...
