Rooms are dated and could do with a refresh. We got a 2 bed apartment for $140 (called a couple of hours before we were due to arrive in Dubbo). Was okay for a night stopover, but have had better for the price. Shower was awesome - great pressure and good hot supply. Location handy to most of the major... More

I have stayed here twice now with school groups of 15 people. The motor inn owner is exceptionally kind and helpful, assisting us in all manner of ways with a smile and 'nothing is too much trouble attitude '. Booking was easy the prices were great - and they had to deal with several last minute changes from my end.... More

Ended up at this venue as the booking Agents reservation for the Palms Motel next door had not registered with the Palms even though I had a hard copy of reservation. As I flew into Dubbo & was dropped off by taxi I was fortunate that I was able to obtain a room at the Shearing Shed. Reception was friendly... More

This used to be a good motel, but now it's become run down, worn out and grubby. The shower was filthy. I had to clean it before we could use it. There were stains on the carpet and everything looked slightly grubby. Didn't want to look too closely at the mattress! Won't be back

Well situated with very little road noise. The tariff was not discounted despite plenty of cards BUT a Continental Breakfast was included instead. Large comfortable room, silent air conditioner and helpful staff along with the Continental Breakfast made for the comfy overnight stay.

Perfect placement ... Even though its on the highway, you don't hear the traffic. Centrally located with the Main Street a short stroll away. Comfortable place to stay for a few nights. Owner was very friendly and helpful. Older looking motel outside but room was clean and tidy which is what you want. Very affordable.

If you are after a bed and a shower for not much cost then this is the place for you. Comfortable and reasonably clean. Room we had was a great size with the worlds smallest TV on the wall. No Foxtel but free wifi worked well. A simple breakfast was delivered and was pleasant. Owner extremely friendly and seemed to... More

The room we had was very spacious and so was the bathroom. It's a much older style Motel, but is clean and has all the amenities needed. Reception is very friendly and only to pleased to assist in any way they can.They also serve breakfast ( which is in the price ) to your room. Very enjoyable.
