I stayed for a few nights for a business trip in December and was very impressed with the excellent customer service and genuine care and concern of guests. This is very rare! The rooms are very neat and tidy and the added bonus of the kitchens is very useful when you are away for work for a few days! Highly... More

Hi NumberNinetyNine, Thankyou for your lovely comments. Sorry too about the late reply. I missed a few in early January. I guess that's what we and everyone else strive for. But its just a pleasure having people stay at my property. So I glad the service shone through. Motels are just places to stay, but we try to be true... More

Manager Richard lived up to all the reviews. He warmly welcomed us and gave a choice of rooms to choose from. When a light went in our bathroom, he came over straight away and sorted it for us. The motel is a short walk away from the town centre, however, walking home from town at midnight after the cinema was... More

Great location, management and room was exactly what was needed. Park was ideal for kids. A great spot, much better than being in the middle of a noisy city. Easy access to convenience stores/service stations.

Stayed in Tallarook for a business trip, the motel is clean, self catering with lots of space. Air conditioned, and comfortable bed. The vue is great on the river and easy to go for a peaceful walk in the morning or exercise in the park across the road. Richard is very helpful and if your good he might shout you... More

This was a great find (courtesy of TripAdvisor)! Richard greeted us on arrival, and just made us feel so welcome and at home (not to mention being fantastic with our kids). The kids really enjoyed having a splash in the pool to blow off some steam after being in the car all day, before we headed back to a great... More

Thanks LellenandCrew, It was great hosting you and I always get a good thrill out of the reviews. Some people say its a trek across the bridge but its about 600m. Plus u get to burn off dinner on the way home. Yep the pool certainly gets a workout this time of year. So thanks again for spreading the word... More

Only stayed one night but no complaints whatsoever. We walked across the bridge to the RSL and had a fabulous meal. If we find ourselves back in Dubbo we will definately stay here again. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Good secure parking.

As a regular visitor to Dubbo it's nice to find a motel that is comfortable, welcoming and relaxed. Tallarook is all those things. Good sized rooms, lots of nice touches and great service turn a 'standard looking' motel into a home away from home.. Richard, the host, is exactly that - a host, and not a manager. Always a pleasure... More

Stayed here with 3 kids . Great friendly service . Room clean and tidy and good set up with everything needed. A very nice walk along a track by the river to the zoo. Places to eat close by. Even tried out the pool which the kids loved. Would recommend
