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.

The Warwick O35 Hockey team has just participated in the Qld Over 35 Mens Hockey Championships in Gympie. We were booked into the Great Eastern Motor Inn with Kath and Derek (owners) and this was a great part of a great weekend. Kath & Derek provided great service, we had a very enjoyable dinner (great pizzas) in the beautiful restaurant,... More

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

I recently stayed at the Great Eastern and was very very disappointed!!! Firstly the reception staff were extremely rude, there was a pervasive, sewage smell coming from the shower drain and it was really noisy with hotel staff clanging and banging right out front of my room at 5.30am!

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
