We stayed here (me, my partner and 2 year old daughter) for 2 nights at the end of February 2013 but were supposed to be staying in Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast! We were travelling on holiday from Hervey Bay to Sydney but due to persistent, heavy rain got stuck in Gympie (roads north and south flooded and impassible). This was the only accomodation with one room available that we could access. We stayed in a small single room with noisy air conditioning. The staff were extremely helpful and moved a 2nd single bed into the room so we all had somewhere to sleep. The shared bathroom was okay but fairly basic and could've been cleaner - bins overflowing. There was a good variety of buffet options (including vegetarian) at breakfast and evening meal so we were well catered for. Even though it rained persistently our daughter enjoyed swimming in the pool as there wasn't anything else to do! Mobile phone reception wasn't great in the room, but there was free wifi outside the administration office. Overall we had a pleasant stay here and would like to thank the staff for being so attentive and helpful during our stay. Thank you.
