Comfortable overnight stay
The rooms are comfortable and well laid out. The location of the motel is in a quiet street off the highway. The staff are welcoming and is a good stop over motel.

Great Motel in Gympie
We were made very welcome by the owners and staff at Shady Rest. The rooms due to their age were a little bit tired but everything was spotless. The bed was comfortable and there was plenty of hot water to have a shower. It is about a 10 minute walk into town so the Motel is well situated to most things in Gympie.

On top of the world
Built on a hill top with great views from the swimming pool, this spot is ideal. Just a 10-15 minute walk through gardened streets to the historic gold rush town especially the RSL with almost a silver service restaurant with reasonable prices and good food.The motel is well appointed with neat ,clean rooms and comfy beds. The owner/manager Wes,drove us into town for dinner as one traveller was straight from a hospital in Brisbane and the courtesy bus would not arrive for an hour. A revival of great hospitality at such a resaonable price. The house full sign was up which needs no explanation. we will stay again and highly recommend.

Our Welcome Stay
Friendliness ,Cleanliness & Locality
I would highly recommend The Shady Rest Motel when staying in Gympie. The Proprietors were very helpful in directions and offering information. The motel was very well maintained and in particular clean. I especially delighted in the well lit mirror in the main area for putting on makeup the best in any Motel I've ever stayed in.....and that's been a few.

Was able to book last minute. Clean. Comfortable.
Just average for a motel. However was clean. Pretty basic with a very old tv with lousy reception. Pillows were quite flat but bed was comfortable. A lot of road noise could be heard from our room. Booked at the last minute after all day travelling. Probably wouldn't stay there again.
