This recently-renovated motel was great value for money for a nights stop-over. Situation only one street back from the highway with new tiles in the bathroom, fresh paint, and new carpet, along with Foxtel movies and sports channels. The only down-side was the air conditioner unit appeared to have missed out on the update - it was an old 'window... More

Good large room for 3 blokes on a road trip with convenient access to the main road but pretty basic. Expect no bells or whistles and a really basic construction with poor finishes. The shower was the highlight.

If there is a worse motel in Gympie its hiding. Overpriced and under maintained. Flat screen TV's have made it to Queensland but apparently not to this motel. Old shower recess, as was everything else in the bathroom. Clean but dated and as I said well overpriced for what was offered. Try somewhere else.

Lovely clean basic motel room, owner very friendly and helpful, would happily stay there again! We found this motel on trip advisor and decided to stay here on the reviews and the motel was fairly full! Room service of home cooked meals was offered by the owner. Could hear the trucks on the main highway during the night as it... More

I stayed at this motel for 5 nights a week for just over 2 months as I was working in Gympie. Judy and Wes are lovely people and take good care of their motel. They cook MASSIVE dinner meals that were a great thing to look forward to at the end of the day. I highly recommend eating their meals... More

Stayed in a family room with my in-laws over the weekend. Room was clean and spacious, operators were friendly, and was a good location near the center of town. Would definitely stay there again and recommend for anyone needing a place in Gympie.

this would have to be the nicest pair of operators this side of brisbane, north bound. Last minute notice, I was in a spa bath within minutes. As the spa filled, Wes came up with breakfast menu and nothing was too much trouble. What a fantastic spa, sleep and rest. Breakfast had me going until an early dinner, go the... More
