“Great place to stay and a very cheap price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

Going on a road trip, well make sure you stop here for a night. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful, the hotel is located within town close to the main road so no need to go looking out of town for a cheap place and the rooms are very tidy and clean. I will be staying here on any future road trips that take me through dubbo. Now called the ibis budget not the formule1.

I stayed here for a few weeks while i was trying to find a place to live in Dubbo. Formule 1 was the cheapest and it was also nicer than some of the deluxe hotels in Dubbo! The rooms are small but you dont really need much bigger than what you had. I stayed in a few different rooms and one thing i did notice was the shower varied. Sometimes you couldnt stand under the shower because of the angle of the shower head (that you couldnt move) another thing sometimes you got a room with a bunk bed hanging over your queen bed and sometimes i did get up in the morning and gave myself some bad concussion! But the staff were always friendly and the people there were also really nice. It was almost a second home to me! The pool is great and so are the facilities in the lobby. It was always clean aswell!

Room Tip: Any room is good!

Guess you get what you pay for. Room is small , was clean bed was comfy.
Reception was friendly and polite , no fuss check in .
However check out time was 10am at 920am we had housekeeping knocking on the door to clean. I was not impressed. Housekeeper said she was checking if we had left already so she could clean. What would have happened if we were still alseep in bed. Wouldl she have barged in . Surely reception should be able to tell housekeeping which rooms have been vacated. We will Never stay there again

I have never reviewed a motel before but felt this one definitely deserves a mention. We were overwhelmed by the excellent service and by the cleanliness & comfort of a budget motel. We came back for a 2nd time in the month of September. Maria went out of her way to find us a room on a very busy weekend. This motel is so clean you could eat off the floor. Tea & coffee facilities are communal which suits us as generally a boiling kettle in a room wakes me and my husband is always awake earlier. There are vending machines close at hand and a guest laundry is available. An all you can eat breakfast is on offer at a ridiculously low price, with a good variety of food incl. hot chocolate (that's a highlight for people like me who don't drink tea & coffee). There is a pool available also - again, so much to offer for a very low price. I am generally a light sleeper but slept well here. On our 2nd stay we found the bed a lot more comfortable. The first time the bed was a little hard but this is a matter of what you're used to.

Room Tip: I suggest asking for a room on the ground floor as there are no lifts and it is a 3 storey building.

Clean, tidy and comfortable stay, definite value for money! The lady manager/owner was very pleasant and helpful at all times of our stay over the October 2012 long weekend. The beds were comfortable and the stay was very enjoyable.
