Take a look at some of the most recent reviews:
“Clean serviced and comfortable when on tour of Longreach, we stayed at the motel for 5 days and one could not fault this place. Rodd and Liane did well and we nicknamed them mum and dad because of the way we were looked after.” – rampet4142 from Adelaide, Australia
“The room was very clean and adequate for our stay, we had a continental breakfast provided each morning but the highlight for us was that Rodd and Liane saw us off each morning and greeted us each afternoon when we returned from our day trips – something that the other motels weren’t doing for other fellow tourists. Would definitely recommend this motel and will absolutely call in when we eventually start touring in our caravan.” – Christine S, Brisbane, Australia
“Very clean rooms the outside was neat and tidy too. The beds were comfortable. Great location with a small walk to town. Staff were friendly. Couldn’t be happier with our stay and would gladly stay there again.” – Anon.
