The menu contained many other interesting... More

Received great service upon arrival late in the evening. Great outlook but the curtains in the room looked second hand and out of place with the other modern decor.

We recently returned to Mackay for a few days to chose to stay at the Ocean International again due to the convenient location and proximity to Far Beach.

Our daughter chose the Ocean International as the venue for her recent Wedding Ceremony and Reception. We were very pleased with the way both were handled. Very professional and their events organiser Hanna made sure every possible base was covered making the day run smoothly with minimum stress even though the weather decided to make things difficult for a garden...

I have stayed here a few times now for work, including meetings/conferences in the function room. The staff are always friendly and helpful. Rooms are very large and open out onto a balcony.

An absolutely excellent hotel. Excellent location. Excellent friendly and efficient staff. Excellent comfortable rooms. Excellent delicious food. BUT: BEWARE: Do not leave anything in your car which is easy to steal. I learned the hard way and lost 95% of everything I had bought the day beforehand which had a devastating impact on plans and almost left me financial ruin.... More

I liked this hotel because it's nice, quiet and next to the beach. We had a family room on the top floor and it was very relaxing. The rooms are tired and could use freshening up but were clean and comfortable nevertheless. One single bed was placed very oddly with the head of it under a bench... We didn't need... More

Stayed for work and very surprised. Older resort in a great location. Quiet surroundings and direct access to open beach. The resturant is really good. Thank you Abby and Kevin for looking after me. A great business meeting in the board room. Rooms are large and quite comfortable.
