We stayed here for 5 nights and found the motel to be quite good. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom is a good size, the pipes bang when the tap is turned on hot or cold but the motel is not new and this can be a problem, it didn't bother us. The restaurant was great and the food... More

My husband and I stayed here and were very happy we did. Our room was very large, clean and the bed wonderfully comfortable. Although and older motel, it has a lot of charm and very quiet even though it is near a major road in and out of town. The restaurant was first class. Our meals were of a very... More

We stayed 3 nights at this pleasant motel right just a few hundred meters from the Qantas Museum and Stockman's Hall of Fame. The room was clean. The bathroom was a little old fashioned but the showers were hot. The bed was comfortable. The service was very friendly. Wifi didn't work well in the room and it was inconvenient having... More

Not modern, however VERY Country clean and friendly. Owner and staff could not have been more helpful, and the food in the dining room at dinner was great (and country large). My wife and I were visiting with two grandchildren, and they loved the wildlife just outside our door. Would stay again.

Large tidy rooms with all that you need. Hard bed that could use a mattress topper. Comfortable walking distance to Qantas Fiunders Museum and Stovkmans Hall of Fame. Look out for the Brolgas in the morning and kangaroos in the afternoon.

A clean and comfortable motel near the Qantas Museum and Stockman's Hall of Fame in Longreach. The owner/manager, Alison and her staff were very friendly and helpful. The meals in the restaurant are very tasty and the spring rolls are delicious! We stayed in room 7 and, although not a problem for us, the refrigeration unit behind the room may... More

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
