We loved our 2 nights at the Great Eastern. The restaurant service is excellent. Derek even offered me a shawl if I was too cold sitting outside near the little fire. Early morning walks around the 'duck pond' opposite were refreshing and delightful. Just a fine place to stay and dine.

Really horrible experience. Stayed one night while travelling through town. My room had a really odd smell to it and the water pressure in the shower was non-existant. Worst thing though was the bed bugs! I was up all night, couldn't sleep because of the itching. In the morning I discovered I was covered in little bite marks from bed... More

On Good Friday our road trip to Cairns was drastically derailed causing us to be stranded outside of Gympie, which was not an original planned stopover. The room was great for travellers and the shower a godsend after more than an hour on the roadside. Derek and Kathryn went out of their way to help us resolve our transport problems.... More

Motel is on Bruce Highway...noise is obvious in the front rooms. It is 3 star with limited parkink for trailers. Car parks outside rooms are covered for storm hail protection. Rooms are ok with better aircon in back rooms.

I booked for 3 nights but made the mistake of not getting a receipt. On my second day I asked to change rooms as the room I had was disgusting, and there was a major plumbing issue which meant that the whole bathroom floor was soaking wet and leaking into the main area. The wife of the owner Derek came... More

We have just had our third stay at the Great Eastern and cannot recommend it highly enough to anyone wanting a place to stay in Gympie. We stayed as a family of 4 in Room 26 which has a queen size bed upstairs on the mezzanine floor, and 2 single beds downstairs, along with the bathroom and kitchenette which is... More

Stopped here as a surprise to the girlfriend, as we stayed here on our first trip away together. She pointed out that it was our anniversary the same day. I asked the manager if we could have the same room, and he looked up the room we had last time, which I was impressed by, that little extra bit of... More

I regularly travel through Gympie, and enjoy my time at the Great Eastern. Again, thanks to hosts Derek & Kath for looking after me. Love the atmosphere in the Restaurant, and the food is always good, drinks are always cold, the prices even better! Rooms are neat & clean, and the new bathroom in my room was good. Internet connection... More
