“Best in Town”
Reviewed 8 March 2013 via mobile

Have stayed a number of times travelling to the area for work. Options for other near by towns are available but this hotel and the nice little town of Gunnedah keep me coming back here. A great steak can be had across the road at the court house, near by cafes, a gym within walking distance with one off visits available for $15. The rooms in the hotel are always clean, modern, large and have cable tv to keep you up to date with all the footy action while away from home.

Everything was easy about this place - even though our door card did not work initially it was very swiftly rectified.

Rooms are large including a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was massive including the shower which had cracking water pressure.

The hotel is in walking distance to pubs, clubs, cafes and coffee shops but is still quiet. Ample parking was available. We had a continental breakfast in the hotel which included fruit, cereals and toasted goods.

Some chocolate in the minibar would be a nice addition but otherwise a very pleasant stopover.

we stayed for a night in September last year. we booked the motel because it was fairly new and modern , a short stroll to the main centre. the room was reasonable and spacious enough for my husband myself and 2 of our young children, however i wouldnt stay longer then a night as there is no grassed area or play space for children, the whole propery is concreted, luckily there was a nearby park.

Overnight stay August 2012. Excellent motel, very clean, friendly staff. Huge bathroom, comfy bed. We would have liked to have stayed a little longer maybe next time. Towns people very welcoming. Excellent location in main street but quiet. Some interesting shopping in Gunnedah as well. Would not hesitate to stay again.

I stayed in a standard room, it was quite large, very comfortable, well appointed kitchenette, large seperate shower/toilet area, everything is very clean. Good offstreet parking is free. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, it is very close to the main drag and the RSL is just across the road. There is a lot of resource sector activity around the area and if you arrive in town a bit late accommodation can be very hard to find. The locals I was due to visit told me prior to leaving for my trip to Gunnedah to always book ahead, which when I looked at the 'no vacancy' signs as I drove into town about 4pm seemed very good advice. There is a bit of noise from the carpark area at night, the more expensive rooms would not be as affected are they are a bit away from the standard rooms.

Stayed at the Mackellar Motel in May 2012. It is a very new motel well located on the main street just a block or so from the main CBD. Our room had a kitchenette which made it ideal for preparing our own breakfast. The bathroom and shower were amazingly big. Good value. Would stay here again.

The Mackellar is one of those hidden gems that comes up once in a while during travels. The Mackellar is a well run , extremely clean and spacious motel with one of the cleanest guest laundries we have come across.
Located at one end of the town the RSL is directly across the road and offers excellent meals with a friendly atmosphere.

Room Tip: You have several dining options within a 100 metres of this motel and the main shopping area is a 1...
