Booked this hotel after checking reviews on Trip Advisor. Handy location across the bridge in Dubbo but off the highway. Clean , quiet functional room with kitchenette. Manager Richard was very helpful and referred us a to a great place for dinner. Didn't realise when booking that this was a "budget" hotel so a pleasant surprise on the room rate.... More

We stayed at the Tallarook during the 2014 Soccer World Cup...the owner is a very friendly fellow who was engulfed with Football fever at the time but this did not detract from his excellent, around the clock service. The Tallarook is off the main drag, as such the street noise is minimal and we had a great sleep. The beds... More

Dubbo was the first stop on a 30 day trip across NSW, South Australia, Northern Territory and Queensland. We were happy to find the Tallarook Motel to be neat, clean and run by the enthusiastic Richard who was keen to help wherever he could. Located adjacent to a lovely walk along the river, we enjoyed our stay. It was a... More

I don't think there is a motel in Dubbo that isn't on ,or partallly on , the main road, but we were not bothered by traffic noise. The room was big, if a little old fashioned, and the bed comfortable. Kitchenette adequately equipped for short stay . Front reception very friendly . Not far from zoo and there is a... More

Thanks Tallarook - in town with lots of good, high, standard motels, largely similar, and mostly with similar facilities - you stand out for service and friendliness. Cheers, and keep up the good work.

Thanks Boidji, Thanks for the great review. Yes we certainly do have some stiff competition in Dub Vegas. I am the first to admit that the Tallarook is far from the best motel in Dubbo, YET! Some things are out of our control. Some motels are newer etc. But what is in our control, is offering outstanding service and making... More

Chose this place based on Trip Adviser rating and was not disappointed. Large room, clean and comfortable. A kitchenette was an added bonus. Manager was so friendly and nothing was a bother. Will definitely stay again.

Thanks for the feedback Juss83. I really believe that value , service and cleanliness are the key. Thats what we strive for at Tallarook. Sorry about the GPS thing. We have raised it with google maps and nothing has been done. My TomTom brings me directly here but Navmans dont? But I am glad you found us eventually. Kind regards... More
