3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

We were very disappointed with this place and wouldn't stay there again. It is very tired and looks like no money has been spent on the place since it was built. However the linen was very clean & the shower had great pressure, although lack of lighting in the bathroom. It is very central to town & good food places... More

We stayed here for five nights as we explored the local area. The room was nice and clean and the motel is centrally located. The evening meals were first class. For some reason, the breakfast in the restaurant finishes at 8.00 am. I've never been to any other hotel in the world where breakfast is over so early. Being on... More

Dear blwilson-48, Thank you for your comments. I apologize for the "official" hours we keep for breakfast . They have been set in response to what our market has traditionally required. However, it is also the case that we will always continue cooking well after 8 am if our guests are still coming up after that time. The reason we... More

This motel has a great location being opposite the railway station and just around the corner from the main shopping area. The room we had was comfortable enough although pretty dated and showing quite a bit of wear and tear. I think there is a process of renovation going on which is good because the potential is there. Bed was... More

Dear RT- Whanganui, Thank you for your comments.

It is very pleasing to finally have our recent wifi issues sorted out. It seems much of our brand new upgrades had not been... More

Dear Nigel M, Thank you for your review. Our "budget"and "standard queen" are certainly smaller than most of our rooms. Of our 57 rooms , they make up only 16 in total and are priced accordingly. So, in one respect it's a case of , in square metre terms, getting what you pay for. Some of our rooms are 40... More

We stayed in a queen room which was on the small side and quite dated. The bed was comfortable and we had a good quiet night’s sleep. The staff are very friendly and efficient. There’s some maintenance needed in the ensuite, with cracking and unpainted plaster repairs, cracked shower screen, the window was very loose with no insect screen and... More

Found this place on line. We got hear all good, bed good, linen great. Overall a great little room, with everything you could need and a park right outside that's undercover. They couldn't be more helpful!! In centre of town, unlike some of the other motels I found on line.

The motel was conveniently positioned across the road from the train station and close to the town centre. The staff were very helpful with a room change for us and the room was very comfortable and well appointed. We will stay here next time we're in Longreach.

After the cancellation of the Spirit of the Outback train due to flooding we endured a 20 hour train/bus trip without sleep.

We found this motel to be modern and clean. The size of the rooms were above average and no noise could be heard from other rooms.

Dear DeanMcoz, Thank you for your review . I apologize for not being able to repair your recliner mechanism.
