Me and my friend, whilst on a road trip around Queensland, had to make a last minute decision to stay the night in Longreach. Because motel availability was limited, the Abajaz was our only motor inn option and we were not happy with it. The room we received was tucked away in a dark and dingy corner. The parking space...

A great place to stay. The managers Rodd and Liane are the nicest people, so helpful and friendly, just couldn't do enough for us, even dropping us off at the Stockman's hall of Fame and picking us up when we had finished our tour. Well done we certainly will be back.

Having read some recent reviews II sometimes wonder about other peoples expectations. Highway noise wasn't noticed. It is walking distance to town... but why would you.... Longreach is an old coutnry town. Parking is not a problem. Hall of Fame and Qantas is too farout of town to walk We had intended on staying in cabins at the main caravan... More

Very difficult to see how this place gets so many excellent reviews. It has definitely seen better days and done better things. The reverse cycle air conditioner was exceptionally noisy and left only one option and that was to turn it off. With the above said mattress comfort was quite good, the wifi was excellent and cleanliness good. I do... More

Hi Geoff, Thankyou for writing a review. We have replaced all but 2 of the air conditioners in the rooms so were a little surprised that you found a brand new unit too noisy to sleep with, although of course a reverse cycle unit will never be completely silent. We will have the installer come and check that out, thanks... More

A great place to stay. Nothing is too much for owners Rodd and Liane. Clean, quiet rooms with free wifi. We were given a map of the town and a detailed folder of "what's on in Longreach" was left for us in the room. Made our sight seeing planning easy. We only stayed one night but will make this our...

Recently stayed here for a stopover of 3 nights on our trip through the outback. I was pleased to find the room being very clean, and a nice comfortable stay. Our car tyre had also unfortunately popped on the first night, and Rodd had kindly changed our tyres for us. We were very appreciative of that. Also the location was... More

The room was quite dark and we weren't happy that a couple in the room next to us continually sat outside their room smoking which was directly under the air conditioner to our room. They need to move smoking away from the rooms. Parking was also quite a squeeze as we're were in a corner.

We honestly don't understand why this motel gets top ranking on TripAdvisor. We booked it after seeing the endless stream of positive reviews. We expect a top-notch venue. Nothing could be further from the truth. Here's what other reviewers aren't telling you. This is very dated, tired motel. The rooms are tiny, very dated and rather tired (e.g. chipped tiles,... More

This is a very dated motel but was clean and comfortable and in a good position. The owners were helpful and friendly and let us into the room early. Ok for a night. We did not eat here. I think it need to be updated.

Hi, Thankyou for writing a review. Clean and comfortable we find are the most important attributes in a motel so we are pleased you found this in our rooms.
