I have been coming here for regularly for 10 years. The owners make you feel welcome and always ask if there is anything else they can do. The hotel has large rooms and is in a quiet location that is within walking distance to the centre of Dubbo.

We had a great stay at the motel. We arrived late and were able to pick up the keys in a locker outside the reception office door. The room was great it had everything we needed and was spotless we would book here again the next time we're in Dubbo in a heartbeat.

Efficient check-in, with friendly staff, overall room was clean and functional, microwave, free WiFi with efficient Air Con, in a central quiet location. If anything bathroom was a little tired and small, however clean and did the job. Parking outside our unit may have been a problem had the car park been full. Value for money and would stay again.
