Great place to stay. We stopped over here on our way up to Fraser Island & on our return journey. The owners are wonderful. Emailed us to have a safe journey, very hospitable. Rooms great, breakfast great.

I had the pleasure of assisting Anne and Trevor as a Motel Minder for several weeks and was impressed with their overall approach to business. Guests are blessed with a friendly approach making them more like family than visitors. The work they are constantly doing to improve the property is evident in every area. The rooms are clean and well provisioned and amazingly quiet regardless of being on the main road. Get in early for a room as they fill quickly. You will not be disappointed.

If the review was merely about e owners then we would see a 10 out of 10 result here. Unfortunately we must consider the motel itself as well as that's why you are reading this. The motel is dated but it's pricing is reflective of this. Apart from needing a decorating overhaul the motel is very clean and tidy however a few minor things were annoying like no liquid soap in the shower dispenser and the sink being blocked. All very minor things however should be managed during the room clean. The motel was fully booked so it certainly meets its markets demands. I believe that the owners are doing a brilliant job with such a tired facility however do not confuse tired with untidy as it was very clean and tidy and good value for money.

We stopped in Dubbo after a long day driving from Melbourne. The Shearing Shed was extremely reasonable, immaculately tidy and run by a delightful couple who introduced themselves to us on our arrival. We can highly recommend it to anyone passing through or spending a few days at the Zoo.
