The 3 of us stayed for a couple of nights, very conveniently placed across de park and river, the city AND the ZOO. My son likes it. We stay here almost every year for the last 6!! Could have been good this time, except for some yelling neighbours!!

The Tallarook Motor Inn is in a nice spot opposite the parkland on the river. Reception was friendly but we found it a bit odd that the young lady was sitting out the front having a smoke. The room was OK, pretty dated with a small bathroom that was very clean. The bed was comfortable with a good selection of... More

My mum and I stayed in this motel en route to Adelaide from Newcastle. I had read good reviews about this place on this (trip advisor) website so thanks to all you guys who reviewed this place and recommended it. I just booked a regular room and it had ample space. Extremely big room which slept up to 4 people,... More

Stayed overnight , friendly helpful owner. He recommended the Westside hotel dinner which was good . Nice swimming pool for a dip. Only slight downside was the traffic noise from the main road nearby but not too much of a problem. It was well equipment with kichen equipment included a proper stove if needed.

We only stayed overnight in the Tallarook Motor Inn while we were on a big road trip up to the north of Queensland, but we loved our stay there. The manager was super friendly and great at giving us advice on a place to eat for the night and helping us find the nearby running tracks. The rooms were more... More

Not sure why this place rates so highly. Could be because you get a friendly email after staying asking you to review on Trip Adviser. The service was very good and for a quick overnight stay while travelling through it was good. The accommodation is very old and tired and after walking and driving around Dubbo I am pretty sure...

Hi Family_2_young_kids, Thank for your review of Tallarook. Its quite possible you got one of our rooms that have not been refurbished yet. But I am extremely pleased you thought our service was good, most important thing really, and you have a comfy overnight stay. We do not promote ourselves as a five star and recognize there is work to... More

We stayed at the Tallarook motor inn on Thursday and Friday (22nd 23rd January 2015) the last week of the school holidays. It was a last minute decision as my daughter and my niece wanted to visit the zoo. I called Richard a few days before hoping there would be a vacancy. While it was a busy time of the... More

After having read some of the reviews for this hotel, we were a little disappointed with what we found. The room was large, clean and fairly comfortable but quite out-dated. Check-in was straightforward. Unfortunately, the night we stayed there it seemed very noisy. This was made worse by a very loud domestic dispute happening a couple of rooms away at... More

Hi Ken554, I am sorry your stay was not up to your expectations. We have some guests request the rooms which face the Mitchell Highway and other guests want rooms that face the park deeming the highway rooms to be to noisy. Its personal preference really. I am not sure which room you in. We also encourage every guest to... More

We stayed in a family room for two nights just before Christmas on our way from Brisbane to Melbourne. As per the other reviews, our room was clean, well-equipped and quite spacious apart from the compact bathroom. With air-conditioning and free wi-fi, it made for a very comfortable stay. The host was fantastic - welcoming, friendly and informative. He gave... More
