Definitely planning to return when I visit mackay again. Great service, clean room and a really comfortable feel. Everything made me feel at home including the tea & coffee with biscuit packets. Loved it.

Stayed at Tropic Coast over the years quite a few times & never unhappy with the experience. This time we were very pleased to have a cooked breakfast included with the tariff of only $90 for the night! Scrummy meal it was too. Hosts are friendly & obliging, rooms clean & well kept.

Only had one night at the Tropic Coast Motel, found the owners very warm and welcoming. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable. As we had no car, it was an easy walk to some local restaurants for dinner.

Had an overnight stay at this motel recently and it was great value for money. Room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Plenty of hot water, very comfy beds and decent breakfast (included in the room rate). Great dinner available across the road at the Shamrock hotel.
