This place was really good value for money. The room we received was very large, complete with a kitchenette, and three beds. There was also an option of getting a breakfast delivered, and the staff working there were very friendly. The only downside is that you can hear noise from other rooms, particularly if you are on the ground floor and you can hear the people above. But otherwise, it was great value for what we received.

Room Tip: Request a room upstairs as they are quieter.

My wife and i have stayed several nights at the Tallarook Motor Inn on several occassions over the past 3 years. We always found the staff to be friendly and ready to go the extra mile to make our stay comfortable. The motel rooms have been extensively upgraded during this time with new LCD TV's, linen and bedspreads and renovated furniture. The motel is always clean and tidy. The current owners/operators Tony and Maureen are amoungst the nicest and friendliest operators we have come across anywhere. The motel is ideal for families with numerous 2 room units and is directly opposite a well kept park with the Mitchell River running through it. Beautiful spot, good accommodation.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in March. The room was spacious with 2 double beds, bathroom (great shower!), good kitchen area, balcony and WiFi. Clean, comfortable and good value for money. Our room overlooked the park opposite and the McQuarie River where you can take a walk. Lovely quiet spot and our sleep was not disurbed. Friendly and helpful owners. Onsite parking also. Dubbo town centre was a short walk over the bridge and there was a small supermarket further up the road from the motel. We ate at the SSS BBQ Barn (over the bridge on the main road) a couple of times and food was lovely. Generous portions.

We were in Dubbo for a wedding which was held at the Lazy River Estate Winery, just outside Dubbo. Nice place to visit and have a relaxing drink although not sure if it's open all the time.

Also went to the Taronga Western Plains Zoo. Fantastic place. Nothing like we have back home! More of a Safari Park than a 'zoo'! Highly recommended.

Compared to other motels of similar age, the Tallarook is value for money and has great kitchen facilities and spacious rooms however, a few things make it fall short of a 3.5 star rating. Sheets were clean but not pressed (which I found odd for a motel). We found an old sticky lollie under one of the single beds (obvsioulsy cleaners dont check under beds each clean), bathroom exhaust looked like it hadnt been cleanded for about 12 months and there was mould stains in the grout around the shower door. Apart from this, I would definatley return again but just feel that the cleaners need to pay a little more attention to finer details -Overall it was a good quiet location and great for families.

Small family run motel overlooking large park next to the river. Is this the best located motel in Dubbo. Did a delightful riverside walking / cycle track along the Macquarie river directly across from the motel. Scrupulously clean, good sized rooms with queen + 2 singles + settee, kitchen with full stove, large built in desk/table. A little bit dated with modest sized bathroom, modernised - with nice carpets, curtains, good beds & linen. Friendly & helpful owners. Excellent breakfast. Upstairs room overlook park and have balcony with great morning sun for breakfast. Excellent value. Benefits of quieter location a bit off the highway. Many motels in Dubbo are on the highways.

Room Tip: Upstairs room with balcony and view of park + river glimpses

Large comfortable & clean rooms just what the doctor orders after a nine hour drive. The kids set up in front of the large tv and a long hot drowning under one of the best flowing showers I have had at any motel. Advice on local attractions and a point in the right direction to great food (within walking distance) was all we could of asked for THANKS TALLAROOK
