We stayed with the team at Tallarook for the recent Go Kart state titles in Dubbo and the nature of the units being very self contained worked well for us. The use of this motel by many companies putting up their employees whilst on work assignments in the area shows that they meet the needs of the employees whilst being... More

This is the second time I've stayed at the Tallarook and it won't be the last. This is the sort of motel where you open the door and breathe out, relax, it's spacious, clean and there are cooking facilitiies! Wow, it's like being home. I only stayed overnight both times, so didn't use the kitchen, but how wonderful, I could... More

We stayed at the Tallarook for a family trip to the zoo. The 2 room suites are excellent value, and it was so good to have the kitchenette facilities. Richard was very friendly and helpful, and the rooms are very clean and have everything you need. Great spot for a family stay, and an easy drive in to Dubbo and... More

Hi small-explorers, Thanks for your great review. I am really stoked you had a great time. I agree, if you can manage the stairs, upstairs is the go. Great balcony over looking BiddyBungie Reserve and the Macquarie River. The only motel in town to offer this view. (bragging now!!) Our cooking facilities are a blessing for a lot of families,...

Stayed here for 2 nights in June 2015 when visiting the Zoo . Friendly welcome from the owner, Richard, who offered to store our bicycles in the shed to the side of the motel. We had an upstairs room, which was quite large, but had a queen and 2 singles. The room, fittings, furniture, furnishings and decor are very dated,... More

Dear EandGl, Thanks for your fair and honest assessment of Tallarook. Very soon the room you stayed it will have a new paint job, tiling, bed heads, carpet etc. It really transforms them. However it was lovely to hear you found the things that we can control, our service, value and cleanliness, were very good. That's what we hang out... More

We arrived in Dubbo late in the afternoon after a long drive and just wanted somewhere to sleep. What a gem we found in the Tallarook Motor Inn. We were greeted by the friendly owner/manager, Richard, who could not do enough for us. Our room was large, very clean and very comfortable. It had a kitchenette and, although the bathroom... More

Hi Billiejay, Thankyou for spreading the word about the wonderful Tallarook. I have considered signage with a play on that old saying, but then I reflect on how many people laugh at my jokes, and that's not many, so I will leave the signage alone. But your absolutely correct, Nothins crook at Tallarook. To be 100% honest I could not... More

Stayed over the Weekend with the Kids, when we weren't at Dubbo Zoo the kids were having just as much fun in the park across the road. Richard was couldn't have been more helpful - even providing a lock up for the bikes each night. The Kids loved the room - perfect place for a Family Week End

Stayed at Tallarook Motor Inn for 3 nights as part of a car club weekend. Motel rooms are larger than average with a kitchen and bench/table .
