Stayed at Tallarook Motor Inn for 3 nights as part of a car club weekend. Motel rooms are larger than average with a kitchen and bench/table . Bathroom was a bit on the small side and we had trouble with the sliding door on the bathroom as it would not sit properly on the bottom slide and kept getting jammed....

Hi NSWSTEAMPOWER1, Thanks for your great review. It was really good having you all stay with us with your british cars. Now whilst I cant say I was overly excited about the cars, I mean no Aston Martins, McClarens, Escari's or BAC mono's, but I was excited by 2 things. You lovely group of people and the excellent organisation of...

We were greeted by very pleasant staff who helped me park my car and trailer, and our room was large, tidy and very comfortable. We had a lovely stroll across to the road to the Westside hotel where we enjoyed a lovely meal. The room we had included a fully equipped kitchenette for those who want to cook their own...

Hi again MarkT, "Howzat" for a great review. It really bowled me over! Any cricket followers will pick the cryptic clue. I hope the trip north is going well.

We stayed here again last weekend, our room faced the park. Found it on our 2nd visit to Dubbo and have never changed. Self catering facilities, nothing has been forgotten including a full sized stove. Was great when we came with the family. Just 2 travelling now, and we still love it. Friendly staff, rooms well presented and spotlessly clean....

Hi PenelopeT, Thankyou for your terrific review. You stayed in one of our upgraded Parkview rooms. Yes we have other ideas to make them even better, but rome wasn't built in a day. We love when we get great comments from our return guests. It really underpins what we are trying to achieve. So thanks for taking the time. And...

Hi CliveN, thanks for reviewing Tallarook. I am pleased you enjoyed your stay for the most part. Thanks for the feed back about the utensils. I will replace the aluminium pots and unfortunately the good knifes seem to grow legs. We hope to see you again. Next round of upgrades commencing this week. Regards, Richard and the Tallarook team.

The motor inn has a great location and facilities. The kitchen and the park across the road are a real plus, especially when travelling with kids. The host is very friendly, the beds are comfy, there is plenty of hot water and the units are tidy.

The Tallarook Motor Inn is in a nice spot opposite the parkland on the river. Reception was friendly but we found it a bit odd that the young lady was sitting out the front having a smoke.
