Beware..... These are very rude people that will charge you for services that you never asked for..... Stay anywhere else.... There is a reasonably nice looking place up on the hill that is closer to town, go there...

Your actions by accepting someone else’s breakfast were not only opportunistic but inconsiderate – shame on you Stephen! More

On arrival the proprietor was very patronising, I object to being called 'love' at every opportunity. I had asked for the handicapped room as I was travelling with a 92 year old only to be told it was taken and the comment 'I can't please all the old women who come here'. Or words to that effect. I paid in... More

OK, so I rated this place 5 stars & no it is not the Ritz or a salubrious waterfront apartment but it was just what we needed as the evening grew dark en route to Hervey Bay. Due to Brisbane traffic we were an hour behind time so started looking for somewhere to stay running the gauntlet of 'its Noosaville,... More

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
