HOTEL REVIEW - Clarion Hotel Mackay Marina

The Clarion Hotel Mackay Marina is regarded as Mackay’s premier accommodation, dining and conference destination. It is located at the Mackay Marina Village - around 7km from the Mackay CBD - and overlooks the tropical waters of the Coral Sea and Southern Whitsunday Islands.

The Clarion Hotel Mackay Marina provides self rated 4.5 star luxury Hotel facilities with 79 accommodation suites - from Deluxe Studio Suites through to Executive Suites and the luxurious Spa Suites complete with spa baths overlooking the marina.  The suites are quite spacious and fully appointed, including a kitchenette and coffee machine, and are designed so each room has an ocean view and a private balcony to enjoy the cooling sea breezes.

On two stays fairly close together, my wife and I stayed in one of the Deluxe Studio Suites.  During our first stay (pictured) our suite was one of those which was undergoing a 'revamp'.

During our second stay, we were given a room which had been 'revamped' with new decor and carpet.

The Hotel also boasts large function and event facilities, a large resort style pool and Latitude 21 Bar and Restaurant which hosts a sumptuous Seafood Buffet Dinner each Friday and Saturday night.

The Clarion Hotel Mackay Marina is truly a luxury place to stay - and given the views over the beautiful Mackay Marina and the Coral Sea (including migrating whales during the year) - it is a highly recommended option for one night or a weekend away from the weekday grind!
