The location is great as it is short walk to the main part of town and to some of the pubs and restaurants. Our room was one of the older style bathrooms which we understand are being upgraded soon. Nevertheless it was spacious and also had a small balcony with a view. The staff were very helpful regarding local attractions...

This is definitely the go to motel for any stay in Longreach. We stayed four nights in a queen deluxe room and couldn't have asked for a better room anywhere. The bed was extremely comfortable and the split system air conditioner was very quiet making for a very peaceful night. While we were in Lonreach we tried a few local...

Look, she ain't the Sofitel but she's way better than the roadside motel down the road. There's 3 lovely places to stay in Longreach - I've stayed at all 3 and elsewhere. This is my pick. Some say rooms are dated, but they're fine. Plus it has the absolute best restaurant in town. And while the other two places are...

The restaurant is excellent and the rooms very good. We travelled in the off-season and the restaurant breakfast was closed Sat and Sun. It is better value than room delivered food available every day. It is hot. Do not travel to outback Queensland unless you can endure heat and flies. The flies were minimal at the Motel. We used the...

We arrived on our Golden Wedding Anniversary trip on th Spirit of the Outback train from Brisbane to an exceptional welcome from Sarah, the receptionist daughter of the owners.

I am travelling for work. The room has a queen bed and a single bed. There is a fridge, tv and great air conditioner. Wifi is available, information is provided at reception. The room very clean and is serviced daily. The onsite restaurant provides great quality food. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly.

This property is one of the closest to the town centre and opposite the rail station. A walk into the town is about 5 minutes away and it's a very flat walk.

Great location but very tired, needs renovating. One meal was a BBQ hosted by the owners, while the BBQ was very nice we had to sit through a lecture on the meat industry. I think the owner likes the sound of his own voice. By all means use this motel but don't go to the BBQ!!!!
