Rob and the team were fantastic, efficient, friendly and professional, the room was very clean and comfortable, the price gave us exceptional value, I highly recommend staying here. I needed a document scanned quickly the morning we left and this was not a problem, done with a smile. Thank you

We booked a queen room, but after seeing the king room we decided to upgrade. I'm so glad we did. The large room is really lovely, the bed is great and the entertainment system is top-notch. The bathroom was beautiful with an excellent shower. The little touches in the room (like the pod coffee machine) really made a welcoming statement.... More

My wife and I had 2 nights in a spacious , clean, quiet room. Some renovations were about to start and the owners even offered to move us to another room because of any inconvenience that we may encounter, we declined so we were then offered a complementary breakfast which we also declined. We really appreciated their unwarranted service and... More

Stayed at The Blue Gum on Friday 6/2/15. Family member in newly renovated King bedroom- sensational. Beautifully appointed room with all the latest electronic wizardry. Lovely furnishings and fixtures. Only one slight negative - the water pressure in the shower was not good. Excellent breakfast served exactly at the time ordered. Host was extremely professional and nothing was trouble -... More

Thank you for your lovely comments on our premier king suite. They have been a huge hit and the feedback has given us further inspiration for our next round of renovations (now well underway). We have noted your comment regarding the water pressure and we are in discussions with council. Unfortunately Dubbo is not blessed with ‘consistently’ strong water pressure... More

My husband and I stayed at the Blue Gum Motor Inn for one night while travelling. The room itself was a good size, there was free internet, the bed and pillows were very good. The room was clean. There was parking out front of the room. Inside was a bit darker than I like (I prefer bright and airy) but... More

Motel was very clean and comfortable with well equipped rooms. This was a great stop over after a long drive. Could easily have stayed longer as motel is well placed to access local attractions such as the zoo. Had a really good nights sleep.
