“Spacious Rooms awesome manager”
Reviewed 24 March 2013

WOW, as soon as you walk in the door to the moment you leave the lady manager (i am so sorry i have forgotten your name) was as nice as pie and was easy to chat with about local and anything for that matter. I run a motel as well and know that just that little extra room the kitchenette/dining room makes ALL the difference!
We looked at the dinner menu and wished we had not just eaten 45 min up the road the crispy skin duck looked so inviting even though it was a little bit exi i think with the atmosphere it would have been worth it if we hadn't already eaten.
We took a few extra brouchers of McNevins to spread the word and to others that drop into our motel that we know who would love this one...

Hi Erica

OK, i'm blushing, thank you for the great review and it was an absolute pleasure chatting to you too.

It is a shame you didn't get to have dinner in our Sails Restaurant as your taste buds would've been tantalised, maybe next time. As we all know and especially as you're in the industry, word of mouth is the best advertising and thank you for taking some of our brochures to spread the word.

We plan on visiting Bowen one day so we'll be sure to come and stay at your Motel.

Kind regards
Sharon

We were stranded in Maryborough due to floods in Gympie and we could not get home - we had checked in to another room booked via Wotif the night before however as much as it was obviously renovated - as the description said, it was only the decor - bedspread and pictures. The motel across the road - McNevins - looked a lot better, so for the second night that we were stranded we stayed here. The staff were very friendly, the room was lovely. Huge bedroom, sufficient kitchen area and lovely lounge area with small dining table. All the amenities were clean and well looked after. If I was to visit Maryborough again I would not hesitate to stay here.

Hi donnam25

I'm sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your stay at the Motel across the road but am happy to hear you enjoyed your room and your overall stay with us.

We have a great team here at McNevins Maryborough so thank you for acknowledging our friendly staff, they all do a fantastic job providing our guests with the best service possible.

Hopefully next time you stay will be for better reasons and not because you''re stuck here because of the floods. I think we've had enough rain this year to last a lifetime.....

Kind regards
Sharon

Visiting an old friend this last weekend in Maryboro Qld. We decided to stay at McNevins Motel,
we had a room with a spar and balcony, clean and tidy. The owner called us on our drive from Brisbane airport to say that there was no gas to his facility. The recent floods had destroyed the gas pipeline, therefore no hot water, as the temp was around 27/28 we thought nothing of it and proceeded as planned.
They have a restaurant and a very nice breakfast room, probably holding 40-50 guests, and the breakfast was good. We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed a beer at the White Lion opposite.

Room Tip: I think the better rooms are upstairs, you will pay more, but there seems to be plenty of ground f...

Hi sunset079

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, the Spa Suites are lovely and even better with hot water but as we suggested under the circumstances, boiling some water and topping up with cold water should do the trick to still be able to enjoy a nice warm spa. It was certainly a long 3 weeks for us having no gas and we thank you for your understanding and still supporting us as it was the whole Wide Bay area that was affected.

Our Glasshouse Breakfast Cafe seats 50 people and i'm pleased to hear you enjoyed your breakfast. We have 50 rooms only 8 of these are upstairs but all of our rooms are of a high standard, clean, spacious and comfortable.

We hope to welcome you back to McNevins Maryborough in the future (with hot water)

Kind regards
Sharon

My husband and I stayed overnight on our way further north. I booked online after reading a number of reviews. We were surprised at the size of the room and the comfort of the bed/linens. Very pleased. Maybe a little more expensive than some motels but in our view well worth the extra spend. Much better than your typical motel room in our view.

Bathroom quite adequate and plenty of towels etc were supplied
Breakfast was served in a separate are known as the "Glasshouse". Limited choices but food very good and served hot

We stayed here for one night and were very impressed. Reception was pleasent and helpfull. Room was a very good size with seperate dining area. Bed was king size and very comfy. we ordered dinner to our room and the standard of the meal was very good though we felt a littel over priced but as it was Christmas holiday period and almost nothing was open in Maryborough it was good to be able to get a nice meal served to our room after a long drive. We would be more than happy to stay here again.

We have stayed at this motel on numerous occasions and have always felt very comfortable, as the units are very roomy and have both front and back doors for good ventilation. The beds are very comfortable and the shower is the best we have experienced on our recent trip around. Fresh milk for our coffee was also appreciated.
