Murray and Sharon are perfect hosts. From the moment we arrived they made us feel so welcome and personally showed us to our room which was exceptional and so comfortable and quiet. The amenities including the pool were perfect. The location was surprisingly close to everything we needed. We didn't realise we could get our zoo tickets at reception which... More

We stayed for a week with 30 special needs adults. Sharon & Murray were fantastic...nothing was too much trouble for them or their staff. The staff, in particular Adrian & Melissa were incredible, assisting our group whenever we needed it & really enjoying their time with us. The rooms were spotless every day & a pleasant surprise was how big... More

This is an excellent place to stay while needing a break on the trip. Murray was very helpful in his making our stay very pleasant. The price is very good and room descriptions are accurate. We would definitely stay here again on any trips through Dubbo.

The owner / managers were extremely accommodating, following a booking mix-up that was entirely our fault. They refunded 100% of the cost for one night, even though they were not required to do so, and even after turning away other travellers who would have taken the room So they were very generous, and a great example of business people doing...

The staff could not do enough for us, right from check in to check out. Have never been treated so well at a motel.

At $106 per double room per night (excluding breakfast) on an off-season Saturday night, we found this old-fashioned motel with small rooms in a quiet, central street of Dubbo represnted reasonable value-for-money. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. Despite its small size, the room had a luggage rack and a built-in cupboard in a nook outside the tiny... More
