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.

Stayed here with my dog on our trip home (Pet Friendly Motor Inn), I was very surprised with the room very clean and staff friendly. Just a short walk to town center and a good walk way out the front of the motor inn to walk the dog. Overall a good pleasant stay, one tip for others… you are in... More

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

Hi and thanks for taking the time to write a review, we appreciate feedback from our guests in any form. We would however prefer to be given the opportunity to address any problems at the time of the stay rather than just finding out our guests had issues after they've left. Especially with the WiFi issues you had, we have... 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. Yes the motel is old and the décor is "old fashioned", we have bedspreads on the beds, not triple sheeting and bolster cushions but we find this is far more practical... More

Our first impression was not good. We walked into a small, dark room that smelt overpoweringly (to the eye watering, sore throat level) of air freshener. There was no outlook as the doors and windows were opaque glass and even with the door and window open, the outlook was the covered car park. The owners were as helpful as they... More

Hi Jenny, Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We are sorry you found the air freshener overpowering, you are obviously very sensitive to smells as most of our guests comment on how nice and clean and fresh the rooms actually are. Not much we can do about the size of the rooms however they are certainly not... More

We travelled to Longreach to reduce the length of the Bucket List and we looked up Trip Advisor reviews beforehand, these sealed the deal. This Motor Inn is not the biggest, the most spacious or the newest...but...if you want easy going, friendly hospitality with great service then this is the place for you. Liane and Rodd love what they do... More

We stayed here as part of the NRMA Travel Tour to Longreach. Rodd and Liane are the most wonderful hosts. Yes the motel is a bit dated but its clean and the sleep quality was excellent. The continental breakfasts were more than adequate. We had three evening meals here - as part of the sea - and the all were... More
