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

Very comfortable accommodation and very friendly and welcoming staff. Close to the centre of Dubbo and they even do coffee! Very family-friendly as we wanted an extra bed in the room and they didn't hesitate to move the couch out and put the extra bed in. Thanks!

We were happy with our stay. The room was large and comfortable, with a settee on which to relax, which was appreciated. The motel was quiet and in walking distance of local restaurants. The tariff was reasonable and we would stay there again.

The room was clean and comfortable and large enough to sleep 2 adults and 2 teenagers in comfort. Shower was nice and hot. Loved the big towels. Excellent value for money. Would stay here again. The only complaint was that the walls are a little thin if the neighbours have their TV up loud.
