Our room was sparkly clean, with lounge, table and chairs and a nice roomy desk, bed was warm and very comfortable with convenient reading lamps. The ensuite was clean, modern and spacious. Staff were very friendly and more than helpful. The location is great, requiring just a relaxed little stroll into the centre of town, and the rates were almost... More

Stayed at the Sundowner Aberdeen Motor Inn during my recent trip to Dubbo, the motel is located in a good location on the Mitchell Highway & close to the centre of town. The motel itself is just basic, but clean & friendly staff. Booking in was quick and easy, the room had everything I wanted bed, tv, shower, tea &... More

Hi Mark, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay and for passing on the issues you had with the air con unit and TV volume. The motel room’s air conditioning units are still only fairly new so it is surprising that you had problems with yours. 30 degrees on high fan should heat the room quickly. I... More

stayed here overnight while travelling Brisbane to Melbourne. The bed and pillows were sooo comfortable, if we had time would probably have stayed at least another night. Manager was very helpful and accomodating. Nice clean room, would definitely reccomend.

Good value for money. Very clean, spacious room and a cosy bed. Close to the centre of town and the Dubbo Zoo. Friendly and helpful staff and the only accommodation on our 2 week driving holiday where other guests shared their experiences with us.

We had a one night stay on way through Dubbo. Room was clean and comfortable but nothing exceptional. We were surprised and disappointed with the rate as we booked through Expedia which showed a $99 rate but when we checked in found out we were being charged $134. As we booked 2 rooms we paid $70 more than had planned... More

Stayed three nights. Room was a good size. I did like the lounge and table with four chairs. Bed was comfortable and there was plenty of hot water. Noise from the main road was not a problem. Room was serviced daily with soap and shapoo, however a quick vacuum each day would have been nice. We made our own bed... More

I stayed mid week a while ago. The motel is in a great location to the cbd and the rooms were ok. Having stayed at several different hotels in Dubbo over the years this one is up there with the best of them, with the exception of the beds. They weren't anything special.

Once again, a faultless stay. Cannot beat this place for service, location, affordability, cleanliness, size of rooms, & hassle free checkin/checkout. Big thumbs up, we cannot see ourselves choosing anywhere else in Dubbo whilst this place remains so great
