From the outside this hotel looks like any other average hotel located in a regional area but once you step inside it is a different story. We stayed as two families in the three bedroom cottage. The cottage was well appointed with heaters , electric blankets and Foxtel in every room, free wifi, front garden and equipped kitchen. The décor... More

Stayed one night and while didn't have full dining capability in room, office obliged with crockery and cutlery graciously and promptly. Bathroom very clean although teething problem with hand soap dispenser. TV channels more than sufficient to entertain travel weary teen.

Ray went above and beyond for us. We rang and booked the room while travelling from Brisbane. Ray organised a late 2am check-in for us, turned on the heater so we arrived to a warm room, put fresh milk in the fridge and made sure we weren't disturbed in the morning. We purchased the Zoo tickets from the hotel and... More

Motel in centrally located in Dubbo. Very comfortable and modern interior - although the outside looks a bit dated. Stayed in a budget room which had everything you needed. Comfortable bed, nice warm heater and even a microwave. Bathroom is a little small but still manageable. Very clean and very quiet motel. Definitely recommend.
