Amazing restaurant, ambience and food first class. Dinning in the restaurant was such a pleasure. The pot belly fire in the outdoor dinning area was welcoming. The Rooms were clean and spacious. Nice new bathrooms. The pool looked inviting. Easy access to motel just off the main road.

What began as a short weekend away for the Gympie Muster Cup turned into a trip of a lifetime, thanks to an introduction by your Restaurant Manager to my foodie hero, seated at the next table, Matt Golinski. Such a beautiful space and town, we can't wait to visit again.

We were upgraded to a room with a newly renovated bathroom. The bathroom was well done, and looked great. The cold water tap on the vanity had barely a trickle of water coming out. Luckily, there was a bath that we could fill the kettle with. We weren't offered any milk upon check-in, and there wasn't any in the room.... More

When driving back from Gladstone to Brisbane we decided to stop in Gympie for a rest. We stayed at the Great Eastern Motor Inn which was conveniently found right near the highway but no road noise disturbed our sleep at all. The friendly staff went out of their way to accommodate my little boy with food allergies and even their... More

Lovely clean, spacious and comfortable room. Kath and Derek are a lovely couple who made us feel like part of an extended family. The restaurant was great and the steaks are divine. We will always stay here when in Gympie.

Having stayed previously, we had mediochre service in the restaurant, but thought we would give it another go for this weekend. Being at an equestrian event in the area, we thought we would support the local area and businesses. Having booked a table for 6 people in the restaurant for 8.00 pm, having arrived at 8.14pm, we were rudely told... More

One of the reasons I chose to stay at the Great Eastern was the fact that it advertised it had a restaurant. On arrival I found this not to be the case. While I understand that it is probably difficult when the place is not busy every night to have a restaurant I was quite disappointed. Sunday night only fish... More
