Everything was ok except the toilet leaked all night and was noisy and the remote control wasn't working. The restaurant im afraid was horrible, one of the worst meals i've had in ages and not cheap. the staff were lovely and the kangaroos out the front were great. would stay here again, I just wouldn't eat here

Have spent three nights at this lovely motel, after driving all week working along the way from Townsville and coming in to longreach to spend my weekend, it's been a fantastic place to relax on my weekend everything you need is at the jumbuck. Also the restaurant has the best caesar salad I've had in a restaurant.

We have expected a lot more by reading the description of this motel. Okay, it's a good place for the outback, but it sure needs some remodeling done. The rooms are spacious, but the bathroom is very old. The garden didn't meet our expectations. The pool area was very untidy, the chairs and tables were rather dirty and so was... More

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. Will be... More

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.

First room the air conditioning was so noisy as to make the room unbearable because of the noise, we advised the management and were checked into another room with a similarly... More

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
