We pulled into Jumbuck after a heavy almost 9hr drive for a solid nights rest. We booked using lastminute.com and checked reviews. I wasn't expecting the royal suites of London but I certainly wasn't expecting a room full of crickets either and that dirty feeling either. The floors were dirty. The toilet hadn't been flushed, there was a used soap...

A great outback experience - I stayed here twice in two weeks. The rooms are quite clean and very spacious. The batherooms are comfortable. Evenings at the pub very delightful - great outdoor seating - and the breakfasts were ample.

The bed was comfy, and the air con although noisy worked great. Great water pressure. I am glad there was a tin of fly spray in there as I found myself at war with the local crickets, I'd like to think in the end I won! The room was priced at $125 I thought it was abit over priced, good...

Great location. No road noise. Very friendly and helpful staff. Well appointed rooms. Very clean and comfortable. Water pressure was good and didn't have to waste water waiting for the hot water to come through. A/C could be better...otherwise great place to rest and relax.

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...

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...

... 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!
