Mackellar Motel
Ranked #2 of 9 Hotels in Gunnedah
Reviewed 17 October 2013

Better than some places I've been to but quite bland, hard to explain, in theory it should be better than it actually was. Maybe it was a bad layout??
Bed was lumply and resulted in a not so great 2 nights sleep.
Staff looked like they preferred to be anywhere else but there.
And I decided to call into the other motel A few doors (starts with M also) up to have a look at their rooms and the rooms are far from bland and the staff couldn't be more inviting! I'll try that next time.

Room Tip: Book at mainstay first! If booked out then book here, it's good just not great.

Overnight stay.

New modern premises. Easiest check in and out I have ever had.

Room was very clean, well laid out and big.

Bathroom was excellent spa bath with a TV in the bathroom. Shower that actually had pressure, plenty of heat and no water saver.

Room was a queen bed that was comfortable. TV was off centre (to the bed) which made using the remote and viewing at times a bit of a pain. Room had desk and chair, plus sofa and arm chair. Fridge sink and microwave.

Parking was out the front of the room and there is some undercover area.

No Noise was heard from within the room from either the main road out the front or the heavy vehicle bypass behind the motel.

The was no grass area or pool so probably more suited to the business traveller.

Room Tip: More business or couple. All concrete and bitumen

Stayed at the Mackellar Motel for a business trip. Rooms and bathrooms are spacious, clean and warm. The motel provides under cover car parking in the rear. Room was particularly quiet and did not hear a single noise from outside.

The motel is placed within a 2 minute walk to a number of eateries and venues.

The shower has great pressure, and the large spa bath was a great bonus to come home to after a long day.

The only downside were the pillows being too stiff for my liking.

Will be returning.

This new motel offers everything you would expect. The customer service was excellent. There is a great covered area for parking. The rooms are large, well appointed and the bathroom is huge with a lovely shower. I would have like the decoration to be less bland. A big bright painting would help instead of the off the shelf thing that is there. Loved the carpet.
Gunnedah is a great town with good food options and a least one good cafe in the Verdict.

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.
