We got off to a bad start with the Great Eastern because my ancient TomTom couldn't find Geordie Road, and the on-site manager wasn't much help on the phone. ("Sticks out like dog's balls" and "You can't miss it" is not very helpful information when you are completely lost). If you are a light sleeper I would strongly recommend you... More

We arrived after dark and it was difficult to find the hotel. It is very close to the Bruce highway which was very busy. We ended up ringing the hotel for directions. The room was large and the bed was comfy. It was noisy - you could hear people in adjacent rooms talking, showering etc and there was quite a... More

This is a nice motel for an overnight stay.Very clean and neat and the bathroom was quite modern. Excellent shower. Not luxury but adequate for our needs. Didn't get to try the restaurant which I have heard is very nice. There was no foxtel in the room.

After a big day of east coast driving we needed an honest meal and the best honest meal is.... In the Great Eastern Motor Inn. It was Sat night and we were there at opening. We had rung ahead and a table for a family of four awaited. Great service and the meals were beautifully cooked and then hand delivered... More

Lovely clean neat room. Very modern quality bathroom. Great shower. Excellent value for money. Friendly helpful staff throughout the property. Its licensed restaurant is charming- imagine nice English pub ambience. Fantastic pizza, steak, barramundi.... all beautifully presented in very timely fashion. Real chef. So good! Don't miss it!

This motel offers a range of rooms. I went for a standard double room because I was only passing through. All standard rooms are upstairs so keep this in mind if you have a lot of luggage. The room was very basic, clean and comfortable. It doesn't include a kitchenette just a kettle, toaster and fridge. The bathroom is more... More

Rode our bikes 4 hours from Gladstone just to dine at Geordies, a restaurant on the south side of Gympie. Stayed the night in their motel as well. Magnificent meal, accommodation very clean and affordable and the host couldn't have done anything more to make our stay enjoyable. The young chef dished the best steak I've had in a long... More

Great place, the rooms were great, people were so welcoming and really looked after us. The food in the restaurant is excellent both Dinner and Breakfast. We enjoyed the bar facilities, we sat watched some AFL, Rugby League and Rugby Union and met the most lovely people from Gympie, all while we ate and enjoyed several beverages. Owners Derrick and...

Decided last minute to stop over and found the reception to be very good especially as they were closing for the night. Initially gave a room right next to the highway but willingly exchanged this for a room further back from the highway. Room had quite recent decor and was clean. Usual facilities were offered (shower, toilet, coffee/tea making, bed... More
