Good value for money stay ...

"Had booked this motel through WOTIF... and Wotif stuffed up the booking... but at Shady Rest they did their best to fix everything up. Nothing was too hard... even though the booking issue wasnt their fault.
I have since stayed two more times... tidy rooms, and Barbara (the new owner) really does her best to ensure service with a smile and a good value for money stay. "     Brettster55 

This is my pick ...

"This quaint motel deserves your attention! Owners 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!"    Kevindekker56
