My work PA through AMEX Globus Business Travel booked a room for one night. On arriving by taxi after flying in from Sydney Reception could not find any record of the booking. Reception phoned the Motel next door the "Shearing Shed Motor Inn" & I was able to walk next door for a rom for the night.

I was so glad I was able to find you a motel room. As I said, I will be following up with your booking agent ( a Travel Agent I think ) as to why your booking did not come through to us. So it does not happen again. More

Centrally located, large rooms well priced. A bit dated, but all beds and mattresses are new, new owner is aware of shortfalls and is in the process of renovating and updating rooms. We loved it! Friendly, helpful and honest reception staff (daughter of owner apparently).

We stayed in room 209. Very spacious. Contained a queen bed single bed and a double sofa bed. Staff was friendly and accomodating. My critique would be the out dated furnishing in the room, looks like the tacky 80s exploded in there. Moss green carpet , hideous bed covers, cheap wood tables and cupboards. I wouldnt recommend children stay up... More

I couldn't agree with you more! I purchased the motel last October and have started refurbishing. Unfortunately not every room can be done at once. I also have plans in at Council to extend our balconies (make them wider) as well as replace the railing that I have inherited. I feel they are not the safest for children upstairs and... More

I stayed here recently for 3 nights and I paid a little extra to have one of their newer rooms. The room was as I expected for the price I paid. It is in a very handy spot, close to many different food options and just a short walk to the supermarket, a service station immediately opposite. I had the... More

The staff were lovely, they really did want to please. Frankly though, the rooms need a good steam clean, the linen had a smell about it like it hadn't been change in awhile and the place outside needed a good hit with a pressure cleaner. I actually couldn't find a tile in the shower that wasn't cracked. I had to... More

We are sorry your experience at our motel was so negative & contrary to all our other positive reviews. Our grounds, basically bitumen car park, are vacuumed every week day morning with a once a week hose-down. We had some bad weather recently and maybe you were here then - lots of leaves blown through the place on a weekend.... More

My partner and I stayed at the Dubbo Palms Motel, Along with two local colleagues for a couple of days to complete a job in town. We stayed in the two bedroom apartment and were very comfy.

Really appreciate your comments. We are relatively new owners and are striving hard to give friendly and professional customer service, while at the same time provide clean and affordable rooms. So far we have installed new queen ensemble beds, fitted keyless entry door locks and are currently painting the exterior of the motel. We do get many comment about our... More

This property has standard rooms, and upgraded rooms - this review is of the standard rooms. The bed is good, the shower is good, the bathroom is older and there is some cracking, but it is clean.

Hi. Your review is spot on! We know the bathrooms have cracked tiles, but as you say, they are clean! And we are renovating - one room at a time though, so it is a slow process, but has to be done. I couldn't be bothered with hiring a self carpet cleaning machine - we simply get them steamed cleaned... More

This motel was very clean and good value for money. Position was excellent as we could walk to the convention centre, shopping centre and our hall. We did not have to use the car until the day we left. King bed was very comfortable and the staff very friendly. Hot breakfast was good start to the day.
