Loved being greeted every morning by the mob of 'roos who seemed to play in the garden in front of our room. The motel is a little dated but it is clean and very comfortable and the pool is to die for after a hard day sightseeing in the heat. Hotel staff are wonderfully friendly and very accommodating.

We enjoyed our stay at this motel. Staff is friendly. The room was modern and well equipped. They have a troop of kangaroos frequenting the lawn outside which was very entertaining. Overall good value for money and can recommend for anyone staying over in Longreach.

Alison and Rhett were amazing! They have only been here 5 months but could not have been more generous with their time and assistance. Neat and tidy rooms, great food and a nice pool. I definitely would recommend this motel and stay there when I return to Longreach in the future.

We stayed here in Sept in a family room with a double bed and two singles. The rooms are a bit dark but are a good size with huge bathrooms and the sliding door at the back breaks out onto grassed strip with table and chairs. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff were all very friendly. There... More

We spent two nights here in August 2014. The property seems to be under refurbishment. Our room had a new air conditioner, alongside the old, and was clean , and quiet, with a nice bed. Plenty of hot water and close to attractions. Attention to small things could make a big difference to the impression of the property. Curtains untidy... More

Nothing is too much for the hosts Judy & Damien and their staff. I got very good tips on how to spend my time in Longreach and Judy made all reservations for me. Located a short walk from Qantas Founders Museum & Stockmen's Hall of Fame. Center of Longreach (20 min walk) to be reached by a nice Botanic Walkway.... More
