Basic accomodation clean and tidy with a comfy bed and terrific shower, great wifi provided. Under cover parking for the car keeping it out of the hot sun. Not to far from the Main Street. Hosts were very welcoming and helpful.

Wes and Judy are both lovely and helpful, and the apartments are clean and tidy. Close to the centre of town and just off the main road, makes this a great little place to stop off for a night or two.

Our family of 7 stayed at the Shady Rest Motel after visiting Australia Zoo on our way to Bundaberg. The motel is located just off the main highway with basic clean rooms that don't have that musty smell. The pool was a refreshing way to end a long hot day at Australia Day. Judy and Wes were very welcoming, lovely...

We stayed overnight whilst driving through, and were greeted by very friendly staff. The room was nice and clean, with comfy beds and outside our room had lots of parking for our car. Didn't have a microwave, but other than that, it was lovely, and would definitely would stay here if I was going through Gympie again.

Lovely friendly folk run the place, they even gave us a lift to the function we went to down the road @ Kensington House. Room no 11 is a bigger than average room at the back of the motel, it has a two person spa bath and seperate toilet. Would be no good if you don't like showering in front...

We stopped here overnight only. A very friendly lady welcomed us. We were very pleased with the cleanliness of the room. We opted for the Continental breakfast. It was delivered the evening before, all fresh and ready to go.

Stayed overnight at the Shady Rest Motel on a family holiday road trip. Owners of the Motel are very welcoming and friendly. Rooms while modest are clean and very comfortable with all requirements met for a family needing a good nights rest. No hesitation in recommending this motel for an overnight stay in the Gympie area. We will definitely return.

This is a nice little motel room, which is all you need when you are on a business trip. Plenty of room to park and heaps off room to park trucks, all it needs is microwaves in the rooms. Real comfy beds for a budget motel room.

This quaint motel deserves your attention! Owmers are lovely, rooms are very clean and the price is affordable! It may look like nothing special from the road but after having stayed at many other Gympie motels, this is my pick! Pass the rest and head to the Shady Rest Motel! I promise you won't be disappointed!
