Not sure why this place rates so highly. Could be because you get a friendly email after staying asking you to review on Trip Adviser. The service was very good and for a quick overnight stay while travelling through it was good. The accommodation is very old and tired and after walking and driving around Dubbo I am pretty sure...

After having read some of the reviews for this hotel, we were a little disappointed with what we found. The room was large, clean and fairly comfortable but quite out-dated.
