This motel delivers well above what you'd expect and I unreservedly recommend it. There actually wasn't a single thing I would criticise - and that is a rare occurrence, when you do a lot of travelling and experience a number of different levels of quality. Even though it was on a major road, there was little noise. Friendly message sent prior to arrival advising of the room number and its time of availability - to a thank you message and wishing us safe travels after we'd left. Our whole experience was terrific. We stayed in the King Suite, which was well worth the small additional cost. Rooms appeared to have been very recently, and extremely tastefully, refurbished. Loved the art work, decor touches and colour schemes. While it was a motel room, there was a microwave, enough crockery and cutlery to cook a small meal and proper washing up materials supplied!! After a long drive, a soak in the gorgeous big bath in the well appointed bathroom was wonderful. Everything was meticulously clean, the bed was extremely comfortable and electric blankets welcomed on a cold night. Very good value for money and I would definitely stay again!!

Spotless, great location, super-friendly & helpful staff. We couldn’t fault the place. It was across the road from the Main Street of Dubbo. Fast food across the road and close to other good quality restaurants. Not far at all from the Zoo. The Old Gaol was just a 10 min walk. It was great. We loved it.
