All food inc breakfast dinner is supplied on site I have no hesitations to recommend Derek and Great eastern Motor Inn to anyone. Best place I have stayed at in Gympie by far. It's like...

Travelling through and had a look at a couple of other motels and decided on this one. We got a unit at the very back of the motel upstairs. Very comfortable and far enough away from the road. Limited road noise. Remodelled bathroom. Management very obliging. The only thing i could pick on was someone had cut their toenails and...

I've stayed here a couple of times before without any concerns, however this time we had so many problems. This started with a man at reception who gave the impression that we were very much an inconvenience to him. Our two rooms were adjacent to each other as requested and undercover parking was at the door. Our first night we...

After being quoted ridiculous amounts for two (2) other motels in Gympie, we stumbled upon the Great Eastern. What a find. Derek (host) could not have been more welcoming. Got us checked in for, what we thought was, a very reasonable nightly rate. The room was was basic, but very clean. The bathroom / toilet (separate) has recently been refurbished...

Accommodation was booked by the office; it's not a resort destination and it's on the highway (easy to find) but there is traffic noise; rooms are ok. It's the hospitality of the owners that stands out, I'd stop there again.

We have stayed at this motel 3 times in the last month while looking at property in the area. We have returned to the Great Eastern Motor Inn because of the excellent service we have been given on each occasion. Our stays have been totally comfortable, relaxing and also fun. The rooms are superior. They are very clean and contemporary....

Been here a few times now and all around a great experience, try the meals highly recommended. I've been in a few different rooms so if you have 4 or more they can look after you. Looking forward to both staying and dining there again.

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

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...
