Quick stay before Fraser...

This place is just off the Bruce Highway, always very clean and tidy, Barbara is just lovely to deal with. Always very accommodating and nothing is ever to much trouble, this is our third time staying here on our trip to Fraser, even let me park in her spot beside the residence as I had the camper in tow and needed to change a bad tyre. Thanks again for the amazing service and great price!

Just lovely...

We had stayed elsewhere in Gympie and didn't like it (it was too cramped)....so we moved to this motel. It was an easy going, neat, uncomplicated, friendly place and we had several options of where to relax. There was also a swimming pool, which I found just lovely in the heat.
