I have travelled through Dubbo 4 times and stayed in different accommodations. Blue Gum Motor Inn was by far the best of them. My room was very clean and cosy and the staff (who I think are the owners) were super friendly. I also suggest you try their food which was as good as a 5 star restaurant! I had... More

On the 1st Feb 2014, the Blue Gum Motor Inn was taken over by new owners and all previous reviews which dealt with attitude and failed processes of the previous owners were deleted. We firmly believe your review was before we took over as we have... More

To start the Blue Gum Motor Inn is not in it's prime, but you cannot fault its comfort or cleanliness; plans are in progress for an update. Rob & Amanda are genuine and their hospitality is second to none, with thoughtful touches and generosity that made me wish I could extend my stay! Talk to Rob or book through their... More

Really enjoyed our visit to Dubbo and the stay at the Blue Gum. The facilities were clean and had all the amenities. Even though the room was pretty basic that was more than made up for by the hosts - Robert and Amanda. They provided excellent service and value added tips and service that went way beyond expectations. I'd recommend... More

Have stayed here previously and the current owners continue to increase the number of reasons for staying here. As we were staying for two nights the option of a home cooked evening meal was good value and of excellent quality/choice. The central location, ample room size and quiet location etc. makes this a really good value for money location. Hosts... More
