The staff at the Jumbuck motel were very friendly. The location is great, close to some of the main attractions of Longreach. Although a little out dated, the rooms were spacious and very clean. There is a pool area and free wifi, which was great. Would stay again :)

We had the pleasure of pulling into the Jumbuck on our way through to Brisbane. The staff were super friendly and the rooms cosy and comfortable. We also throughly enjoyed our dinner in the onsite restaurant. Will definitely stay again if we pass back through.

We stayed at the Jumbuck for one night after travelling a long 12 hours from Barkley Homestead. It was a pleasant stay with hot showers, clean linen and a comfortable bed, just what you need for a stop over! The receptionist was lovely, very cheerful and happy to help with any of our needs. There's a convenient motel restaurant with... More

We stayed in room 30 which is located at the rear of the motel so there was minimal noise from the hwy. We didn't use the pool, but it looked well maintained and had ample seating and was shaded. The room didn't have a microwave or toaster, but room service is available. Would recommend this motel to others. Very close... More

... a bit out of town but very close to the main attractions (Qantas Founders Museum, Stockman's Hall of Fame, Kinnon & Co) and close to wildlife. You may see wallabys at dawn - and keep your eyes peeled for the jabiru. Great restaurant!

The motel is located within a 5 minute walk along the concrete footpath to the Qantas Founders Museum and a few minutes longer to Stockman's Hall of Fame. In the other direction it is a 15 min walk into Longreach township. The rooms are very clean with tea and coffee making facilities and small bar fridge. Flatscreen TV with some... More

The owners are really helpful and the meals were good and we even managed to get a good bottle of local wine. The room was comfortable and clean but pretty basic and dated. We were warm, dry and felt the price was reasonable.The walls are thin and I am sure I could hear the neighbours change their mind. But we... More

Comfortable accommodation on the outskirts of Longreach. Handy to Stockman's Hall of Fame and Qantas Founders' Museum, but not close enough to walk. Rooms are dated, but very clean and quiet. Easy drive into Longreach for lots of great cafes and restaurants.

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.
