Stayed here for one night as we were travelling to the zoo. Lovely staff, close to everything, clean rooms. Would definitely stay here again. Only minor thing would be that the room was a little outdated but still a very comfortable stay especially with 3 young kids.

Would heartily recommend this place for anyone wanting accommodation in Dubbo. Very nice rooms and friendly management, and very good value for money. Was only going to stay 1 night but kept extending and Rob & Mandy were always accommodating.

I've been staying at the Blue Gum Motel for a number of years passing through Dubbo. The rooms have always been spacious and well looked after. Since Manda and Rob have taken over, our great stop off point has become amazing. They have revamped the rooms again now with white sheets and triple sheeting (like the 5 star hotels we... More

This place was just so wonderful and I just had a quick look about reviews and everyone loved the place beside one person. But I will tell u all I travel around Aus in the country all the time and I rate this 5✨ The two wonderful staff were great. :)

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

These people do not know manners. My friend and I were very poorly treated got told prices over the phone got there and were completely different! Pretty much got our milk thrown at us. Just horrible would never go back and would never recommend this place to my worst enemy.

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

Just home from Dubbo. We stayed at the Blue Gum Motel. Our Hosts Robert and Amanda were the most nicest people. They were so accommodating, the rooms were clean and comfortable and I highly recommend everyone stay there.
