A welcoming and wonderful service...

A nice, cosy, simple motel with all the basic facilities including AC. Barbara was so wonderful to us going out of her way to help, cooking our rice and even calling back to check on an item we had left behind. She is an example on how to provide a welcoming and wonderful service to the customers. We spent two night visiting Noosa and the launching pad for our Fraser Island adventure. Thank you so much

Spotlessly clean with comfortable beds...

Older style motel; spotlessly clean with comfortable beds meant a good nights sleep despite being at the front of the motel; traffic noise from the Bruce Highway did not disturb; 10% discount at the RSL for staying here a nice bonus as were the complimentary biscuits, to go with the tea & coffee. Fridge and wine glasses most welcome. Value for an overnight stay.

Breakfast is delicious...

Clean and spacious room...good reception. Need a plash, go to the pool.. Do not be shy to order breakfast which is delicious. I had 2 croissants for just AUD 3.50. Find better if you can.

Not too far from Gympie's CBD...

Very tidy and neat, quite, convenient location not too far from Gympie's CBD, friendly staff, easy to book and pay for online using booking.com and all-round a pleasant experience.
