I stayed here for one night. The staff were friendly and helpful and food not bad. The rooms are reasonably clean, but very dark and dated. I had a terrible sleep thanks to my neighbours snoring and a couple of crickets, whom I shared the room with.

I was very happy with the stay here, the room was spotless including the carpet. Meals were fantastic and the staff could not do enough for me. Although typically dated for the area it was well maintained including up to date appliances. Will definitely stay here on my future visits to Longreach.

We stayed here for one night. The rooms were dated and you could hear every time your neighbour turned a tap on. The banging of doors was annoying. It had only a kettle so in room facilities were limited. The room was clean and comfortable. We ate at their restaurant and were both pleasantly surprised by the quality of meals.

Stayed here one night. Very modest. No microwave or toaster. Dated. Great receptionist. Could hear our neighbours talking. Best motel in walking distance to Qantas museum and Stockman's Museum. I probably would not stay here again.

I really wanted to title this review "Wonton soup and kangaroos", but the "resident" kangaroos seemed to have gone away for the weekend. Never mind; maybe next time. The Jumbuck Motel is on the eastern outskirts of the town, beautifully situated for a walk to Longreach's major tourist attractions: the QANTAS Founders' Museum and the Stockman's Hall of Fame. We...

I stayed for 2 nights at this motel which is situated across the road from the Qantas Founders Museum. Alison and Rhett are very hospitable and picked us up from the airport free of charge. Whilst the motel is by no means flashy it is very clean and has all you need for a couple of nights away. It is... More

The owners of this motel Rhett and Alison are fantastic - always ready to help and do so in a cheerful manner. The room was spacious, the food was good, and the staff helpful. I would always recommend this motel particularly if you are in the region for a couple of days.

The motel is pretty much locked in the time warp from when we ate Chiko rolls and Big M's at the beach... But it is clean and well maintained - but it felt pretty expensive for what it was. Reality is there aren't a heap of choices out here. For pilots - opposite the airport, so great for an overnight... More

This property is quite old but in my case very clean and well presented. Bed was good shower pressure was amazing, whoever makes the scrambled eggs is a gun and the resident kangaroos really set the standard, thoroughly enjoyed my stay.
