We stayed for one night at this Inn and we were pleased with our room and bedding. It was well presented and clean and it was a particularly large room with a good large bed and a good bathroom. A good place to stay in a good part of Dubbo and within reach of all of the interesting places to visit.

Booked ahead as a bigger group. Restaurant was at half capacity. Ordered the surf n turf. Worst attempt I’ve seen. Went straight back to the counter with my milk “garlic cream” and cremated medium rare steak. They had ran out of bugs so replaced them with an extra mussel and small prawn? I had watched the chef put the meal on the counter and not buzz us 5-10 minutes before somebody did buzz us to collect our meals. They refunded me and re cooked my meal. It was still terrible overcooked but there was extra garlic flavoured milk. Never again! The poor girl taking orders was lovely and did a great job not her fault. The bloke at the bar was equally friendly. Cheap nasty overpriced poorly prepared food.

We had a queen room facing west and enjoyed the sunset each evening from our verandah, on chairs provided - viewing the passing parade. Room was well equipped with crockery, cutlery and breakfast packages for the three day stay. Plenty of storage space, desk top and cupboards. Very spacious and well insulated against cold.

We stayed at the Macquarie Inn for three nights on a recent road trip through NSW, while visiting Dubbo to take in the Taronga/Western Plains Zoo. The Macquarie Inn has many wonderful points, but is just getting a little tired. ROOMS - we stayed in a two bedroom unit which featured more knotty pine panelling than I've seen since 1985! The pine walls and maroon carpet really date the rooms, however they were comfortable and spacious. The kitchenette included a fridge, sink etc - everything we needed to make the stay more convenient with children. The second bedroom had two single beds, and was a smallish room but absolutely fine for two kids. The master was well sized. Air conditioning units and TV's in the master, and the living area. Both rooms had large wardrobes large enough to hold at least two large suitcases to get them out of your way if need be. The one bathroom was very clean, with plenty of towel racks unlike many other hotels! However, there was no way to turn on the shower without getting your arm saturated, and the shower head needed replacing, sending shoots of water up on a strange angle to the rest of the spray. Another criticism - we found the master bed extremely saggy, to the point we struggled to get a good night's sleep. All rooms are ground level. LOCATION - we found it very convenient having the restaurant/tavern right next door (a stone's throw - short walk across the car park). We were tired after a long drive then a long day at the Zoo, so it was convenient for an easy meal, with kids meals as well. The outdoor playground was a hit with the kids, and there was also colouring in available inside. The hotel stay came with free continental breakfast at this eatery, which was fairly basic but did the job - a few cereals, toast and a toaster, and a few pastries. There is a shopping centre with a Woolworths and Big W, amongst others, a short drive (<5mins) away. The Dubbo Botanic Gardens and Japanese Gardens are on the next block and well worth a look, as they were extremely pretty and a highlight, despite only dropping in on them at a whim. I'll review separately. The Zoo is a 15min or so drive, as are most hotels. The Hotel is not located in the 'heart' of the town centre, but this wasn't a criteria for us. It was probably a little more pleasant where we were, with parkland on either side of the Inn. OTHER FACILITIES - parking was easy, right outside most rooms. The Laundry consisted of a single washing machine, but there was no dryer as the tavern next door had borrowed it after theirs broke. I was irritated that they couldn't at least provide a $10 drying rack from Kmart (or simply replace the dryer which could be arranged quite easily! However a case of penny pinching perhaps...). STAFF - reception were extremely helpful with tips about town, and on our departure gave the children a little colouring in and activity pack, which they were delighted to receive. Housekeeping and tavern staff were also pleasant. Overall, whilst needing a bit of money spent on a couple of upgrades (in our room - the bed and shower head), the Macquarie Inn was a comfortable, easy stay and we would recommend it to others, particularly for a similar length stay (2-3 nights) where you'll be out and about for much of the time.

Adequate motor inn with large pub adjacent, located on the edge of town with a big shopping mall next door. Rooms are spacious, old fashioned with a few maintenance issues. Staff were willing but let down on a few fronts: no information anywhere about Wi-Fi, breakfast boxes provided but no info (they were complimentary), room included kettle and toaster but no plates/cutlery. Large trucks on the nearby arterial road were noisy during the night. Dubbo is a motor inn city, but this experience was quite disappointing.
