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

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

However we were pleasantly surprised with the comfortable bed, size of room but most of all with the cleanliness, not a speck of dust was found. The added comforts... More

Dear Trish T, Thankyou for your positive review. We love surprising people in a positive way. Many of our guests have commented on how lovely and clean our rooms are. It is particularly rewarding when we realise The Jumbuck is attracting many guests who used to stay here and had stopped doing so. The rooms aren't modern though it should... More
