Albert Park Motor Inn
Ranked #3 of 4 Hotels in Longreach
Reviewed October 11, 2012

We chose Albert Park Motel because it was close to the airport (we were flying in and wouldn't have a vehicle) however this meant we were out of town quite a way. Management were happy to take us places in their courtesy bus and even went as far as lending us the bus one day when it wasn't required by other guests. You don't get such trusting relaxed service providers everywhere you go !!! Guest laundries are always an added bonus when travelling with family - these were readily available and cheap to use. Nice pool area.

My tour group recently stayed here and the service was both warm and professional. In addition as I was not well, the owner Tony Wilkinson went above and beyond in his efforts to assist me. The rooms are immaculate and the atmosphere is enhanced with many authentic and entertaining Australian touches which I won't ruin by describing before people have the chance to discover themselves.

I stayed with my 8 year old son to primarily visit the Qantas Air Museum. The location was perfect - we could easily walk to Qantas Air Museum and Stockman's Hall of Fame. The rooms were beautifully clean, and serviced daily. The room was really big and spacious with 2 Queen sized beds but also very quiet.
The restaurant had fantastic, tasty food for both adults and kids - both room service and in the restaurant. The staff are the true gems. Ashley on Reception couldn't do enough for me - even before I arrived! She suggested things my 8 year old would enjoy, and what needed prebooking in advance. Tony and Jane were wonderful hosts, so genuine, welcoming and hospitable. They came and picked us up from the train station on arrival, and happily dropped us into town, or back to the airport on departure. We had a wonderful stay. Recommend Albert Park Motor Inn to anyone staying in Longreach.

A group of 21 booked the dining room expecting to order from the menu, however we were shown to another room for buffet without consultation and it was the worst meal ever.Some roast lamb that had been carved long before we were to eat, so dry we could not chew it, gravy from a tea pot that was like water, soggy peas and some OK potatoes and pumpkin.Next we were called for dessert a bought sticky date square cake cut into match box size servings with custard.Six of our party arrived late about 6.45pm and were given a few chips and one piece of even drier meat.
The final insult was the cost $36 a head ! Now come on Australia is this what we serve our tourists how bad is this ,Marilyn v W

Hi Marilyn,
We apologise for a meal that was obviously not up to the normal high standard we pride ourselves on.

Your 3 course costed buffet meal arrangements were orgainsed prior to your arrival with your groups' leaders. We are sorry for any misunderstanding that has happened.

We would hope that if you are travelling this way again you would give us the opportunity to give you a more enjoyable Albert Park experience.

A big thanks for everything that the Albert park did for us the weekend of our wedding!
Great Food, service and a friendly atmosphere made my whole week easy and stress free.
We had a meet and greet at the pool exceptional BBQ food and cold drinks were flowing and a great time was had by the 130 guest we invited.
Breaky was also a must as the selection of food was quality.

Stayed for 4 nights recently and we can only echo the positive posts listed below. The hotel was nice and CLEAN.The,location excellent if your planning a visit to the Hall of Fame, Qantas museum or School of the Air. However, what makes this hotel stand out was the staff. Tony and Jane lead a team who are friendly, efficient and who can't do enough for you. Many city hotels could learn a lot from this great example of outback hospitality. Thanks everyone,we can't wait to return one day soon.

Drove from Darwin-Timber Creek-Katherine-Alice Springs and finally to Longreach and this was one of the best hotels we encountered. The front counter staff were absolutely wonderful. The room was comfortable and quiet. The restaurant was great - the food and staff were terrific. The location of this motel complex was the stand-out. Walking distance to Stockmans Hall of Fame and Qantas museum - fantastic! The 'must do' in Longreach is the Thompson River cruise (Outback Aussie Tours) with dinner. We have been on a few before in different places but the way this was done, the professionalism of the staff, the great food cooked on camp ovens and, especially the music by Michael & Grant of Heartland Theatre was unforgettable! There was even a marriage proposal in our group. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE ALBERT PARK
