Lanai has everything you need and is located perfectly to get to everything on foot if you want to. Large spotlessly clean modern units with a view over the river. The staff are wonderful and the wifi was great. We'll be back.

Good morning and thank you so much for your kind comments. Whether for business or pleasure nothing pleases us more than to know that our guests have had a comfortable relaxing stay whilst in Mackay. We also understand the need to stay connected with family and friends when travelling so providing a reliable wi-fi service is paramount. Recently we doubled the daily allowance and provide this service free of charge as opposed to having a time limit. I'll also pass on your comments to our housekeeping team as our apartments are ten years old now, but they are meticulously cleaned to a high standard that our guests expect and deserve. Look forward to welcoming you back as our region has so much to offer. Kind regards.

The hotel was beautiful, but the residents were so awful which made it an unpleasant stay. I had troubles in the car park getting around and understanding how to get out and had a lady abuse me in the Carpark. It was upsetting cause I was on a holiday and were thinking that’s

Good morning Emma I am so sorry that this encounter marred your experience during your recent stay, and while we are extremely disappointed we unfortunately have no control over a situation such as this where a third party is involved. If reported at the time we would have investigated immediately, but hasten to assure you that this is the first instance where a matter such as this has been reported to us in well over five years that I have been here. As we have 80 apartments in the complex occupied by owners, tenants and guests it will be particularly difficult to pinpoint, but again can only apologise for the inconsiderate actions of the person involved. On a more positive note we're truly delighted that you found our complex suitable to your needs. Kind regards.

Stayed here with girlfriends on a golfing holiday. Had a brilliant apartment - so much space and provided all that we needed to self cater. Comfortable beds. Clean showers. Apartment 708 on the corner had 3 bedrooms and views across the river to the sea. 2 rooms shared a

Thank you so much for your positive comments, and we're delighted the accommodation and facilities met your needs during your stay. It was a particularly hectic week with the golfing tournament and we were thrilled to have many of the competitors stay with us. I do apologise though if the pool was a little cool as the temperature is set to 27 degrees only. Thankfully it is one of the few heated pools in Mackay which can be used all year round. I hope you ladies had a very successful week and we certainly look forward to welcoming you back to Lanai on a future occasion. Your comments have been very much appreciated by all of our team! Kind regards.
