Wes and Judy were very welcoming and friendly. Their breakfasts are great value. Their premises is clean and the room was good with good entertainment options. The bathrooms are good with good water pressure. Judy shared her local knowledge with us and we really enjoyed our stay.

After having an awful experience at another Gympie motel; Wes stayed up late to check us in & was absolutely lovely. Hot shower, Immaculately clean room and Comfy bed & definitely helped us out! Would stay again in a heartbeat! The hospitality we received at the very last minute helped us two very tired campers!!!

Wonderful stay & wonderful hosts

“I stayed at Shady Rest for three weeks on a business trip. From the moment I checked in, the hosts Judy & Wes Hickman, instantly made me feel at home. Such a rare thing to find these days especially when their hospitality is 100% genuine. The room was comfortable, quiet, very clean, free wi-fi helped enormously and the breakfast on offer is incredibly generous and delivered to your door on time, every time. We made use if the BBQ facilities by the pool and were offered additional supplies - oil, lights, utensils. Nothing was ever any trouble and if I find myself back in Gympie then I will only ever stay at Shady Rest. Cannot highly recommend this motel highly enough.”

Wonderful place to stay.

“A four day stay in the new year was very enjoyable. We used the Shady Rest as a base to travel the district and take in the sites. The rooms were always clean and fresh when we returned. The rooms are very quiet and we found we could quite compfortably take a nanna nap during the day. Wes and Judy are lovely hosts and made us feel at home. As a final comment I would like to pass my compliments to the breakfast chef.”

“My wife & I can recommend the Shady Rest Motel, the owners Wes & Judy made our stay so enjoyable and nothing was too much trouble for them. We always returned to a clean & fresh room as it was serviced daily. Wes & Judy were so friendly and welcoming and really made you feel like part of their family…”
