Neat clean older style motel with big rooms, fully equipped kitchen and small bathroom which could do with some updating as our shower leaked. Can be a bit noisy as you can adjacent rooms taps turning...

Hi Jenny, Thanks for sharing your views on the Tallarook. As you can probably tell from my other responses, we are constantly working away at improvements. If I could change one thing about the Tallarook, It would to be making the bathrooms a little bigger, but saying that, other guests describe them as spacious and adequate. I think they are...

We stayed with the team at Tallarook for the recent Go Kart state titles in Dubbo and the nature of the units being very self contained worked well for us. The use of this motel by many companies putting up their employees whilst on work assignments in the area shows that they meet the needs of the employees whilst being...

This is the second time I've stayed at the Tallarook and it won't be the last. This is the sort of motel where you open the door and breathe out, relax, it's spacious, clean and there are cooking facilitiies! Wow, it's like being home. I only stayed overnight both times, so didn't use the kitchen, but how wonderful, I could...

Hi small-explorers, Thanks for your great review. I am really stoked you had a great time. I agree, if you can manage the stairs, upstairs is the go.

Stayed here for 2 nights in June 2015 when visiting the Zoo . Friendly welcome from the owner, Richard, who offered to store our bicycles in the shed to the side of the motel. We had an upstairs room, which was quite large, but had a queen and 2 singles. The room, fittings, furniture, furnishings and decor are very dated,...

Hi Billiejay, Thankyou for spreading the word about the wonderful Tallarook.
