We arrived by the Spirit of the Outback Train and walked across the street to the motel. The train was late but reception knew we were coming and remained open. Staff are very friendly. We were upgraded to a king size room. King Bed was so comfortable and bathroom and bedroom very big. We stayed for 5 nights and would...

Stayed here when in Longreach for a friend's 90th birthday (not a typo!). The staff were very friendly and accommodating, the premises basic but clean and well maintained. Of great importance, the air conditioning was excellent, and there was a lovely pool area, both of which came in handy to escape the Longreach heat. (a mile 39C on our visit)....

Arrived on 30/12/2016 and staff informed us of the locust/cricket problem in town so no worries. We were given a very large room which was clean (apart from the odd cricket but that wasn't their problem. All in all a good stay but I will make one comment; their restaurant is closed throughout December and January and so I had...

LongreachMotorInn, Owner at Longreach Motor Inn, responded to this review

Dear annpU9855KY, Thank you for your comments. The cricket numbers are proving to be a challenge at present. Some summers bring stink beetles for a month or two. In other summers , gidyea beetles or flying ants might be prolific for a couple of weeks. Thankfully, crickets are harmless and hopefully, apart from requiring us to sweep them away regularly,...

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.
