“Best Ever Accomodation”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

This motel was sparkling clean with all facilities you could ask for. Would stay here any day of the week! Couldn't recommend it any higher, everything was clean and bright. Many thanks for such a great room and service.

Although very slightly dated, the room (210) was neat as a pin, as was the restaurant, pool and surrounds. Room a little small, w slight, muffled sounds from adjoining room, bed- not "perfect" but certainly not uncomfortable! Slight "complaint" about air-con: only on/off. Could not adjust, hence my wife got a little chilly and needed a blanket. It certainly functioned well though! OK, it's not "5-star", but staff were friendly, relaxed and helpful, and the dinner and b'fast we had were very tasty. B'fast fruit was fresh and crisp, and Dave makes GREAT coffee (rarely seen in motels!!!). For $155/nt, I'd definitely return!

This hotel was a lot nicer than we thought it was going to be. It was very spacious and we had a little balcony over looking the pool which was nice ! There was a baby's cot in the room though which I feel didn't need to be there ! Also the spa didn't work which was disappointing! On the whole though it was really great! Nice big bed and air con was great and it was clean. Loved it!!

We had a fantastic stay at this hotel. It was clean, comfortable and roomy. The restaurant was better than some 4 star big hotels and very affordable. A full breakfast was only $18 compared to some that are $25-35. We have recommended this hotel to friends.

Found best western Macquarie barracks to be a great place to stay and dine. Room was excellent and the staff went out of their way to help with our elderly Mum and her needs. The dining was first class which made the stay even more pleasurable for us all. Thanks to all concerned.

stayed for one night. Bed is comfortable. Restaurant was good. Some of the rooms you have to park your car away from. Rooms have everything we needed. Bar fridge, cups etc. The only bad thing was the room service for breakfast. Its cheap and you get cheap. Bacon was burnt and was like eating leather. Poached eggs were rubbery. Coffees was cold along with the tomatoes. Had to go to maccas after checkout.

Reviewed 22 October 2013

We made our booking in person, and we felt welcome as soon as we entered reception - cheerful smile, helpful attitude, happy to be flexible about our departure date (when you're looking for a new home, it's hard to be certain when the quest will finish). The room was comfortable and well appointed, the meals fine (sadly, though, the restaurant is closed on weekends and public holidays, but there's a pub a minute's walk away that has a reasonable menu and large portions). We'll use the Macquarie Barracks again when we move from Queensland next month.

Room Tip: We only saw our room, so can't offer ideas on what's best.
