What a wonderful few days at the Mandarin at Macksville. Welcoming and caring hosts, large rooms, close to amenities in town. Nothing was a bother for Jason and Meiling our hosts and the rooms were spotless. Highly recommended.

A Necessary stopover

Traveling from Sydney on compassionate grounds to Bowraville we needed somewhere close by to stay. Mandarin Motel proved an excellent choice. An extra bed, toaster & microwave were provided so we could be self sufficient during the Covid-19 restrictions. Many thanks.

A good overnight stop between Sydney and Qld

A nice motel which is very quiet, clean and comfortable. I have used it on a number of trips between Sydney - Brisbane- Sydney. It is a good stopping point and I always feel welcome. Macksville is only a few kilometres off the freeway so very convenient Always best to book direct with the motel

Happy camper

Very friendly and helpful host, large comfortable and clean room, and close to town's facilities.

Very quiet now that the highway by-pass has been commissioned which is a blessing.

Would stay there again and recommend to others.
