Rooms are good value and reasonably well equipped,building is getting on a bit now but still fine,owners are easy to deal with and very friendly. There is a nice pool out front,and there is plenty to do and see in Dubbo,would... More

Have stayed twice in last few months, good location,no traffic noise, 100 metres to many fast food restaurants including a great pizza shop. Motel is not new but is clean and tidy. Owner is extremely accommodating, nothing is too much trouble. Excellent breakfast is include in tariff.

Dirty, filthy and disappointing. Tired and outdated, old towels, old sheets, grime everywhere. Tired and old I am ok with but the tired the cleaner it needs to be and then the towels and bedding need to be fantastic. Bed was lumpy and awful, shower head spurted sideways and the door was very hard to open. Will not stay here... More

Stayed here recently for business. Although the nightly rate is on the low side it was disappointing. Room was tired, out dated furniture in the room I was provided. The bathroom, a pool of water on floor near the toilet surprised me. I couldn't establish where it was from. The whole experience left me cold as the air conditioning unit... More

That photo of the Shearing Shed is nothing like a room I've seen at the place! The bed was nothing like that and old lamps were beside the beds not those fittings shown in the photo. Don't think I'd stay again.

The people were very friendly, however we found this Motor Inn in need of a makeover and updating. The carpet was so disgusting we didn't want to take our shoes off. The breakfast was not very appetising but the owners were very friendly and helpful

Recently stayed for one night on our return to Melbourne from Queensland. We'd had car trouble throughout the day so was happy just to make it to Dubbo before dark. The rate was cheaper than the Aberdeen Sundowner just up the road and seemed much quieter too. The shower was good, no noise to disturb us and we had a... More
