“Good value, lovely staff”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

Stayed one night for work and found the staff super helpful and friendly. Had room service dinner and that was pretty good.
Room is large, a bit outdated in some parts, but others have been updated, the most important things- the bed and chairs.
Bed was very comfortable and linen was great.
Bathroom is old but clean and functional.

Dear MelAxP,

You are absolutely spot on with your comments. As you identified, since taking over the management of the Blue Gum (6 months ago) we have concentrated on replacing the most important things – bedding, linen, towels, chairs, and curtains, for which we have received plenty of positive guest feedback. Plans for more extensive renovations are also underway with the successful release (completed last week!) of our new premier king suites.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with others. We’re thrilled you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to welcome you back next time you’re in town!

Best wishes,
Manda and Rob Zatta

Stayed here for one night as we were travelling to the zoo. Lovely staff, close to everything, clean rooms. Would definitely stay here again. Only minor thing would be that the room was a little outdated but still a very comfortable stay especially with 3 young kids.

Dear Lovella,

Thank you for your feedback. We’re very pleased to read that you and your family enjoyed your stay with us. My husband and I, and our housekeepers take enormous pride in the cleanliness and presentation of our rooms. We are currently refurbishing each of our room types (queen & twin rooms recently completed) with our larger family rooms next on our list. Many thanks again for your great comments.

Best wishes,

Would heartily recommend this place for anyone wanting accommodation in Dubbo. Very nice rooms and friendly management, and very good value for money. Was only going to stay 1 night but kept extending and Rob & Mandy were always accommodating.

I've been staying at the Blue Gum Motel for a number of years passing through Dubbo. The rooms have always been spacious and well looked after. Since Manda and Rob have taken over, our great stop off point has become amazing. They have revamped the rooms again now with white sheets and triple sheeting (like the 5 star hotels we stay in) , their service is second to none, and they are truly concerned that every guest has a wonderful stay at their motel. Well done guys.

Dear NewToThis,

It was great to welcome you back to the Blue Gum! I’m glad you enjoyed the new bedding and sheeting system. In addition to being extremely hygienic, we have received many lovely comments from new and return guests about how light and fresh the rooms look. Many thanks for taking the time to write a review. We look forward to welcoming you back next time you’re travelling through Dubbo!

This place was just so wonderful and I just had a quick look about reviews and everyone loved the place beside one person. But I will tell u all I travel around Aus in the country all the time and I rate this 5✨ The two wonderful staff were great. :)

I have travelled through Dubbo 4 times and stayed in different accommodations. Blue Gum Motor Inn was by far the best of them. My room was very clean and cosy and the staff (who I think are the owners) were super friendly. I also suggest you try their food which was as good as a 5 star restaurant! I had a very pleasant stay in this motel.

These people do not know manners. My friend and I were very poorly treated got told prices over the phone got there and were completely different! Pretty much got our milk thrown at us. Just horrible would never go back and would never recommend this place to my worst enemy.

Hi Emma.
Thanks for taking the time to post this review after 6 months.
On the 1st Feb 2014, the Blue Gum Motor Inn was taken over by new owners and all previous reviews which dealt with attitude and failed processes of the previous owners were deleted. We firmly believe your review was before we took over as we have no record of you staying and we have new processes in place where it’s impossible to be charged a different price than quoted unless the booking changes. Ie More guests or a different room configuration was requested on check-in to what was originally booked.

We have requested to TripAdviser that this review is removed.
