Albert Park Motor Inn
Ranked #3 of 4 Hotels in Longreach
Reviewed December 17, 2009

As someone who travels a lot for a living, I get to stay in all sorts of places. Having stayed in almost every place in the town of Longreach, this would have to be the better of all the places in town.

The rooms are a standard size, but newer then all the others. Cleaner then the rest also.

In a really hot town like Longreach, it was nice that the air conditioning system is a split system. All other places have the window mounted boxes which I find very noisy at times.

Shower was good - no water saving shower heads (big plus for us that travel a great deal), with the basic kettle and fridge that you get in most places.

Location is handy, but with a town of this size, everything was in walking distance for me (but then I like walking after sitting in a car all day). Although this place is close to the highway, the rooms were quite well built and I did not notice as much noise as I had in other places.

Only downside is that when I stayed, the restaurant was closed for an extender time. I am not sure if it will open again and if you like to eat in your room, you may need to check if that is possible. However, if you like a meal out - the town has a few lovely finds (see further reviews for details).

We booked in here 6 weeks ahead of schedule and were given a room on the highway which was not necessary because it was only a third full, we were changed to a room by the pool and out the back after a request. The room like alot of motel rooms reeked of cleaning fluids which I always feel is there to mask something bad even if it isn't. My husband requested an extension chord which in the end he had to go and look for after no attempt by the front staff to help. However, the restaurant was fantastic and the food quality and presentation were excellent. Unfortunately, the restaurant was closing down for 3 months over summer which is a shame as it was great to be able to walk back to your room after a great dinner. Hope the restaurant closure doesn't mean that the bar by the pool - which is part of the restaurant - is closing too.

We stayed here during an 'outback to coast' road trip on 4th and 5th October 2009. The motel is much bigger than I expected with clean rooms, a large pool and patio area and a small but lovely restaurant.

We had a room in the rear complex away from the main street. The rooms at the front of the complex are set back from the main road.

As other reviews mention, this motel is within easy reach of the airport and the two museums which will probably be the main reason for visiting Longreach anyway. Even in the busy school holiday season, the actual centre of Longreach seemed deserted!

We had dinner in the restaurant - lovely food and massive portions! Breakfast was good with a buffet or fully cooked choices. All staff were friendly and helpful.

We took the rather eclectic Billabong Boat cruise which was a hoot!

I would recommend the Albert Park Motor during a trip to Longreach.

My work place recently had trip to Longreach. A staff and committee totally 11 people were accommodated at the Albert Park Motor Inn, Longreach.

They staff at the Albert Park Motor Inn accommodated us with ease. They were friendly, helpful and professional. Queries were responsed to promptly and with easy.

The management and staff were friendly, professional and more than accommodating. They made conversation with guests.

Also the food in the restaurant was outstanding. Breakfast, lunch and dinner was especially impressive.

As a city vegetarian visiting the county and western Qld for the first time I was most impressed and relieved.

Good points:
- comfortable bed
- relatively quiet considering proximity to highway
- ample undercover parking
- easy access to main road
- room as clean as it could be
- pool area is big and inviting
- access to room through front and back doors
- room was of reasonable size

Bad points:
- furnishings and fixtures quite dated
- the drain in my bathroom was pretty smelly and the rest of the room was quite stuffy and stale-smelling at first (probably due to age though)

It appears you have two choices of location in Longreach - town centre or out near the airport.

From our observation, the motels out near the airport look like the best bet. The ones in the town look a little more run down

The Albert Park Motor Inn is directly opposite the airport - only a 5 minute walk from the terminal. It is also only a 5 minute walk to the Stockmans Hall of Fame and the Qantas Founder Museum. You can also easily walk into the town centre, it would take you about 25 minutes.

The Albert Park Motor Inn is typical of a country motel. It is quite a large complex with under-cover parking in front of each motel room. The whole complex probably has about 60 rooms which I thought was large for Longreach. It also has quite a large pool which is inviting on hot afternoons.

It was fairly quiet during our stay. From what I can understand, the winter months are the busy time in Longreach. Checkin was fast, simple and polite. The room, although somewhat dated, was very clean and comfortable. It looked like it had just recieved a coat of paint inside. We paid about $130/night which was reasonable for the accomodation offered

We ate in the motel resturant for both dinner and breakfast and it was quite good.

All the staff were very polite and friendly.

We flew into Longreach for the weekend primarily to visit the Stockmans Hall of Fame and The Qantas Museum. I can highly recommend the Albert Park as they are both within easy walking distance of the motel.

Can highly recommend the Cattlemans Bar and Grill out at the Hall of Fame - the food and service was excellent.

Overall, the Albert Park Motor Inn is a good choice if staying in Longreach. Would definately return next time we visit.
