The basics are there: clean rooms, good hot water and heaters (we visited in winter), and good location (near to Dubbo zoo, town center and Woolsworth short drive away). Cooking facility comprises of microwave only. The high Tripadvisor rating could be more reflective of the lack of quality accommodations in Dubbo (we had high expectations). There are a few nice...

We stayed one night in a spa room. Bed was very comfortable but there was a bit of noise from the semis during the night. The bathroom was enormous with good thick towels and plenty of toiletries. Wasn't really keen on the red leather lounge, though. The lady and gentleman in the reception were very friendly and helpful. And it... More

We booked this family room no knowing the motel. Booked direct, 2A and 3K. We arrived and could not be happier - great location, extremely clean room, great layout, plenty of space and very comfortable - would hightly recommend for anyone staying in Dubbo.

The motel and in particular, our room, was clean and nice and very smart. The motel is close to the zoo, you could possibly walk there in 30 minutes but it would be a hike to get back to the motel afterwards. The internet was good, easy to arrange and quick. Oh god, the pool was fantastic. I think it... More

Our family recently stayed at the Abel Tasman overnight for the second time. Easy, quick check in and host on reception was very nice. Room was large and absolutely spotless, very well maintained grounds. Motel has foxtel and free Wifi however if using more then one device ( one ipad per child) more than one password is required. Will definitely... More

We stayed just the one night - very little in the way of food on the premises but Club Dubbo over the road was fine. Roads facing rooms (disabled) can have a little road noise but overall very good. Free wifi for 3 hrs - pay for brekkie

My husband and I have stayed here twice, the last time was last week on our way from Brisbane to Melbourne. The Reception Staff are superb. Very helpful and kind. Our room was spotlessly clean, if a bit outdated. The air conditioner definitely needed attention, as it was hard to get the fan working properly. Plenty of towels, bed comfy,... More

Often away from home my favourite place inbetween places is staying at the Abel Tasman Motor Inn in Dubbo. Relaxed feeling away from bustling traffic with exceptional rooms always clean with a wonderful ambience. I know it's old world but try the Lambs Fry for brekkie in the morning particularly if you've a big day. It will see you through... More

We stayed here for the proximity to the airport as we had to stay just for a night. We were very happy with the room's cleanliness and the free wi-fi. If you planning to drop a rented car at the airport this is a superb location as the petrol pump is right next to the hotel and one can fill... More
