Thank you for your glowing review Allen! It was our pleasure having you and your three grandsons stay with us. You should be very proud of your grandkids; they have beautiful manners. I’m glad they enjoyed the pool after their visit to the zoo and the Old Dubbo Gaol. It certainly was hot enough! It was lovely to have you... More

We stayed in the family room, it's an older style room but the owners have it spotless. It had all that we needed for our stay. We stayed one night as we were staying at the zoo the next night. Before checking out we made plans to extend our stay. We got a message from Rob to say that we... More

It was lovely to meet you and your gorgeous family Leigh-Ann. Thank you for the lovely feedback. I’m pleased our offer to check in early was helpful – it certainly has been unseasonably hot these last few days. Our lovely new air conditioners are certainly working a treat! We’re so pleased that you had a wonderful time exploring Dubbo. We’d... More

We stayed here based on its TripAdvisor rating and I don't think it really lives up to it. The owners were very nice and helpful with information on restaurants etc but the room was very tired. The air con unit was an old unit in the wall which made a LOT of noise and was quite annoying. The bathroom was... More

Hello Geoff, I trust your interstate move went well. We have to say we were extremely disappointed to read your review. We are a proud family run business who since taking over the motel less than 10 months ago have fully renovated several rooms including bathrooms to offer premier King suites; we have installed luxurious queen pillow top beds in...

Blue Gum's newly refurbished rooms are fantastic! Beautifully appointed with fantastic amenities! Mandy and Rob are excellent hosts who went out of their way to ensure our stay was comfortable.

It was our pleasure having you stay with us. We are over the moon that you enjoyed your stay in the king suite; perhaps even more so since you booked based on your friends’ (and past guests) recommendation. I was also pleased to read that you thoroughly enjoyed your Zoo experience/stay; it truly is incredible. Thank you for going out... More

Blue Gum Motor Inn was a great place to stay. The staff were really helpful, offering some fantastic recommendations, and the rooms were clean and comfortable. We loved the oversized towels which are so rarely found in hotels! Blue Gum doesn't scrimp on the little things where others hotels might.

Excellent place to stay. Clean and cost effective. Family Friendly Mandy and Rob are great owners who went out of their way to ensure an early check in for the elderly in-laws staying for a weekend wedding in Dubbo. Breakfast is across the road if you choose. We would stay again.

In Dubbo to visit family, we had 2 rooms, 1 a lovely new King room and 1 a queen. The king was lovely, fully renovated. Our son's room had new furnishings and older fittings as advertised. Their hot water wasn't working, but the manager, changed their room immediately with a minimum of fuss. The only criticism we had was the... More

This motel is a bit out of the way, quite tired and dated but clean. Lucky we are used to air conditioners because other wise we would not have had much sleep. The aircon in the room was an old style type that even on low fan sounded like a 747 taking off. The really need to update to split... More
