We don’t usually take the Newell back from the Gold Coast, but we did this year for a change. We stopped at the Shearing Shed, and were very impressed with the friendliness of the management. We were greeted with a friendly smile, and given a lot of local knowledge of the numerous places to eat, all within walking distance. Handy if you want to stretch your legs, leave the car, and/or have a drink.

The accommodation we had was a family room. The room was spacious, clean, comfortable, and not too noisy (being on a main road). The bathroom was nice and clean. Free WiFi kept the kids happy (and quiet!).

If you’re calling through Dubbo, I highly recommend staying at the Shearing Shed. We were very happy with our stay.

Thank so much for taking the time to post a review. Travelling with kids can be a challenge - we hope arriving at the Shearing Shed Motor Inn is a pleasant experience. Our large rooms certainly give everyone a little extra personal space they have missed in the car. Safe travels

The staff were very friendly and full of information from the time I booked until after I left. The King Spa Suite was delightful and perfect for a chilly night in winter. Great position being able to walk to fast food outlets and restaurants. Only 5 minutes from the Zoo this was a great deal

We stayed at the shearing shed motel and it was certainly one of the most comfortable and clean motels we have ever stayed at! Anne and Trevor were fantastic hosts, very kind and welcoming. The room was extremely spacious and all the homely touches were very thoughtful. It was really close to town, everything within walking distance and only 5 minutes drive to the zoo. Would definitely recommend the shearing shed motel to anyone who visits Dubbo!

Dubbo can be very cold in winter and the Shearing Shed Inn is just the place to have a warm nights sleep in a comfortable bed. The rooms are spacious and well presented with comfortable furniture and great facilities including a Microwave oven and tea making facilities.
Breakfast is available however if you are wanting to leave early McDonalds is just over the road within walking distance.
We went to the RSL Club just down the road for dinner where good quality cheap food is available 7 days a week.
The room was clean and the bathroom easy to use. The managers are very friendly and helpful.
WiFi was good and speed was above average for a motel where sometimes the internet speeds are terrible.
This is a great motel for an overnight stay for interstate travellers.

Room tip: We requested a ground floor unit to save carrying bags up the stairs.

A one night stay for two families. A pleasant nights stay. Rooms were very comfortable. Trevor and Ann were most pleasant and happy to stop and have a chat. Would recommend a stay. Certainly value for money.
