Orange, Australia
Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

I arrived around 8pm to check and found the room very comfortable. The motel is in a quiet location in Dubbo. Ordered room service for dinner, an enormous and quite delicious chicken Caesar salad and very reasonably priced breakfast of bacon, scrambled eggs and tomato.

Very clean and comfortable motel. Easy, friendly check-in and quiet room with everything we needed. Restaurant not open as we stayed Sunday night so can't review that (but recommend Royal India just round the corner for dinner). Carpark right outside room and all level easy access. Great night's sleep. Thank you Murray.
