We had a fantastic stop over at the Mary River Motor Inn. After a long day driving it was just perfect, Kelly on the front desk could not have been of more help and the F & B staff were fantastic, friendly attentive and a absolute delight. The food (especially the slow cooked pork) was world class and exceeded expectations.... More

After driving from Rocky on our homeward journey we found daylight deminishing so decided to stay at Gympie for the night. Found that one motel was fully booked but they rang The Mary River Motel to enquire if they had a vacancy. So lucky to find they had one last room. As it was now dark, cold and we were... More

Recently stayed here for an overnight stay. I was pleasantly surprised how nice the facility was. Having never stayed in Gympie before I am confident i choose the right place to stay at. It is a very modern facility with large rooms that are well presented. Clean & tidy. Staff were very friendly on check in/check out. The motel is... More

I was travelling from Central QLD to Northern NSW and it was late in the evening. I rang ahead to make a booking at short notice. I spoke with Linda and she was really helpful. Arrived at the motel at 9pm so I missed the restaurant and could not experience the food but the rest of the motel was excellent.... More

This great motel was recommended to me by a work colleague. So on a recent work trip from Brisbane I decided to give them a try. Room was large, clean, comfortable and nicely appointed. I met with a work buddy and dined here as well. Meal was top notch and the choc pudding was to die for. The restaurant was... More

Great motel. Room was amply large, clean, comfortable and nicely appointed. Coming from the north headed south it can be a little difficult to find. We dined in the dining room and while the food was excellent that particular day the staff seemed overwhelmed with a sudden inrush of folks all at the same time. Still they did a great... More

We stayed at Mary River Motor Inn overnight on a brief trip to pick up a boat. We have stayed in Gympie before and were a little disappointed with the previous motel and what we got for our money so we decided to give Mary River Motor Inn a try. Reading up on it found it was a new motel... More

This motel is situated right on the side of the highway so we could hear traffic noise all night. The property also has a significant security issue. At 2:30am some one accessed our room,with a room key. After some yelling and screaming we got them out. There was no management on site. We obviously brought this to the attention of... More

Dear Peter_Sue20 Thank you for taking the time to review our property however unfortunately your comments are a little untrue. You certainly did experience a security breach and we have fixed this issue so it doesn't happen again, there was "no" yelling and screaming as you describe nor was the response "things happen". We apologised sincerely for what occurred and... More
