“Best place to stay if passing through”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

The staff are really friendly and there's no real difference between their 4 and 5 stars room. The cost is about $120 per night and I would not hesitate to recommend it to friends and relatives. Best to go out and get food as the restaurant wasn't that great, but the pool is clean and excellent. Great family run business.

Room Tip: Choose the cheaper rooms on the top levels facing the highway - quiet and clean.

An overnight in Dubbo at Golden West, we booked an Executive King Room with Continental Breakfast, it was a good online deal...
The room was on the ground floor and was adequate in size, the bed comfortable and the room clean...
The room and bathroom had undergone some refurbishment and was pleasant, but the bathroom amenities were poor...
We had one face cloth for two people, no hand towels and the bathroom products were the cheapest one could find...
There was very little road noise, parking was adequate, the breakfast was okay but honestly pretty ordinary...
To sum it up did we enjoy our stay...somewhat...it is better than most, but needs to lift the product to stand out from a long line of Main Street Motels...

The Golden West is your typical Dubbo (country town) motel. Predictable with its standard beds and decor, staff were friendly, food was basic but OK and motel was reasonable quiet. Only gripe was security chain was missing from door but apart from that the motel was all you would expect and nothing extra for the price.

Stayed here to travel across to the Elvis Festival in Parkes. Booked a King Room with spa in advance and was not dissapointed. Owners and manager were only too willing to help us out. Even gave my wife and I a tub of ice to cool our drinks down with. Room very clean and well maintained. Each room has a table and chair set outside of the room to enjoy the afternoon outdoors and the large sunshaded pool was a blessing on the hot summer day. Will definitely be back again. Great value for money.

Beware on making a booking in advance, my partner and I where planning on staying here we booked ahead for two nights accomodation, after reading the reviews! However my step daughter went into labour a week early on the day we were supposed to be in Dubbo. I must note this was not a holiday we were planning; it was work. I called the motel to let them know of our unforseen circumstances, the gentleman that answered the phone "The manager" seemed pleasent enough. I explained our situation, before I could tell him that we would be arriving within the next couple of days he stated that they had a policy of charging the whole one nights accomodation of $125.00 for cancellation I asked him to please try to understand that this was not our fault, well there was no convincing he went ahead with it anyway "Where is the love these days??? Anyway I will be back in Dubbo very soon I will definately not be staying there, many more motels to choose from that I have stayed in before. I work in Dubbo quite a lot its a shame he wont be getting another penny from me.:(

This place ticked all the boxes for me at a decent price.

We took the flaming deal which included breakfast which was a must before a long trip to Brisbane. We also had dinner at the restaurant that night.

Staff were very friendly taking a fancy to our gorgeous little girl. She is 3.5months old and was allowed to stay in her porta-cot with us.

Rooms were ok, the pool was nice and was shaded. Close to town and petrol etc.

I would stay here again!!
