Stayed here overnight on our way to Victoria. Chose the motel for its positive TripAdvisor reviews and for the nice location, opposite a park. It offered a huge room, with the added bonus of a basic kitchenette, for a reasonable price. However, we did not appreciate the seat located directly outside our room (a family room) being visited by the... More

Hi Bambalucy, Thanks for your review. I am also a non smoker. We do our best to enforce the 4 meter no smoking rules but people just ignore it. It is frustrating for me as well because the ash trays are located well away from the rooms so people tend to ash on the ground and leave the mess behind.... More

Tallarook Motor Inn is conveniently located with the Zoo and the centre of town within a 5 minutes drive. Great location opposite a park. Clean and comfortable beds - the kitchenette is an added bonus for families interested in self catering. Very friendly and helpful staff - always ready to help with a smile!

Friendly helpful staff, great location - just 5 minutes to Western Plains Zoo. Room was comfortable, very clean and air conditioned. The beds were comfy and the kitchenette well equipped with full sized fridge, microwave and stove. The small swimming pool was very welcoming after a hot day at the zoo.

Tallarook Motor Inn is a great place to stay in Dubbo! It is always spotlessly clean and has one of the best Hosts (Richard) in the hotel industry! He is always helpful and cheerful. The rooms are large, have cooking facilities and are great for families who wish to self-cater. There is a playground opposite that is great for kids... More

We came to Dubbo from Sydney as a family and stayed here as it was close to the zoo. Comfy beds, good shower not much more to ask for. Was clean except for a dead roach sitting on the kitchen counter. We paid $135. Book through trip advisor though as they charged me $15 more to book directly with them.

Hi James S, thanks for reviewing the Tallarook. I am glad you found it comfy and clean. Sorry about the cocky. The room you had was not occupied for about 1 week prior to you and should have been checked prior to you occupying the room, so my apologies about that. And with your booking, the $15 additional was for... More

Hi Michelle B, Very funny. That saying "things are crook in Tallarook" comes from the time of the great depression and Melbournians were heading north to get work on the railway at a place called Tallarook. They arrived to no work and hence the saying. But I am really happy you have now told the world that things ARN'T crook... More

Travelled there a couple years ago (Dec 2013), and were treated with pleasant service, Richard was very nice and accommodating to the constant changes in our booking :) Between the hotel pool and the park across the road, the kids (and we) were very happy!

Friendly greeting on arrival. Overall an ok stay however: - the decor needs a massive update. Looks like the rooms are stuck in the 1980s!
