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

We have enjoyed our stay. New owners doing improvements but even now it is good value. The restaurant has good food. Great service. Handy to main attractions. Kangaroos and Emu visit the grounds every am and PM. Barry and Margaret Grafton

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

My family visited Longreach for 4 days for a great friends 50th birthday party and I must admit I was hesitant when told that we could book rooms at the Jumbuck. I stayed here for a few weeks some 25 years ago prior to living in Longreach so was hopeful the property had been maintained or renovated. Can I just... More

I stayed at the Jumbuck Motel in March 2014. The place has recently undergone new management, and have re-carpeted most if not all of the rooms. I was given the opportunity to give my feedback on two different parts of the hotel, as my trip out there was in a couple of parts - due to my work in the... More
