by Kim on Mandarin Motel, Macksville

Staff very friendly, polite and helpful. Very clean, quiet and well equipped room. Great location easy 5-10 min walk to river, shops, restaurants and park. Free wifi available for an hour although I had trouble accessing it. I didn't speak to staff as it was late and I had my own data anyway. Happily stay again.

The cleanliness was exceptional

As good as or at least equal to the best country motel i have stayed.

The cleanliness was exceptional, the rooms just so spacious and very well appointed.

The Manager could not have done another thing. Friendly, polite and highly professional.

Have stayed in 100's of motels throughout Australia in my working career and this one tops the lot.

Congratulations well done and keep the standard as it is.

I hope an opportunity comes again to stay.

Best Golden Chain

Am a Golden Chain member and stay in Golden Chain Motels because the standard of cleanliness and condition of rooms is usually quite high so have stayed in many Golden Chain Motels.. Mandarin Motel is a platinum Motel and is probably the best one I have stayed in.. Have stayed twice in the last 2 months and both times very clean, a lovely big room with very modern facilities.. MeiLing is a delight to deal with.. Highly recomended
