"Outstanding service"

20/09/2018

We stayed two nights at the motel and the facilities and service was excellent. The rooms are roomy, modern and excepectionally clean. No noise from outside can be heard and I would recommend staying at the motel if you want peace and quiet with no children.

Just a stunning refurbishment. Everything that you could want, with those little extra touches. Great bed. Very welcoming proprietor. Central location with plenty of good tips for nearby eating places. Will certainly stay here again, travelling through.

Stayed last week, visiting family and for a family funeral. Staff were lovely and very accommodating. We needed to go out one morning, then return mid morning to get ready for the funeral, staff ensured they cleaned our room after we left for the funeral, so we weren't stressed. Room was lovely, good shower. Some traffic noise(rm 2) but nothing my usual ear plugs couldn't cope with for sleep. Would definitely stay here again.

"Highly recommened"

We both stayed here for one night after a long trip from wonthaggi. This place is so clean, warm and comfortable. Fantastic shower, tv with Netflix and Foxtel. Modern, new, quiet. Great breakfast served in room. No complaints at all. 2 complimentary bottles of water on departure for our next journey. Great value and service . 10/10. Thankyou!!! You will not be disappointed if you stay here. (And I am fussy). lol.

The room was clean, well presented with fresh furnishings and facilities. Excellent for work related trips. Very quiet off the main street is an advantage. Choose a ground floor room as you can park outside your room

"The Best for style and comfort"

20/08/2018

This motel has recently been refurbished and it was fantastic. The great flat screen Telly to the king bed and modern fit out. The workmanship in the refurbishment was excellent. Definitely come back.

Having stayed overnight after a long work day I must say the Bluegum BW Motel was a VERY welcome sight! My room was immaculate and modern with a ridiculous number of extra comfort options like an in-room yoga program and mat and more than 5 different pillow choices!!!! Not only is Bluegum well-maintained and luxuriously comfortable, the service is impeccable. The owners are very hard working - it was the owner who greeted me at 8pm when I arrived and the owner again who delivered my breakfast at the crack of dawn. As someone who stays in a lot of hotels for work, I cannot say enough good things about the Bluegum. Well done guys, I will certainly be back! ?? ????????

"Best place"

14/08/2018

We have been on a road trip for 7days and all we can say is every other motel owner could learn a lot from our hosts. The room is exceptional with everything you could need and decorated in the most tasteful way. It would be worth a visit to Dubbo just to stay here.

"Outstanding motel experience"

14/08/2018

You will find it difficult to find a better motel than this when travelling through NSW. Newly refurbished, the room was comfortable, stylish and the bed and linen, etc. very comfortable. The welcome was warm dnwe were even sent on our way with two bottles of water the next morning.

"In the heart of Dubbo"

09/08/2018

Great location but even more fabulous was the immaculate presentation of the room. Perfect for couples travelling for business or pleasure. Rooms were really well appointed with free wifi, comfy beds and pillow selection. Parking is right outside your door and the complimentary bottle of water on departure just topped off a great night's sleep.

We stayed 2 nights at this wonderful Motel, words really do not describe how impressive it is. We stayed in room 10 and all the fixtures and fittings were fantastic, and so lovely and clean which is a big thing for us. This is the first time both my husband and I have slept properly when away from home and we have travelled a lot. From the minute you enter the motel you feel welcome. We had breakfast both mornings which was great. I would go back to Dubbo just to stay at this Motel & will certainly recommend to friends. Well done to Rob and Manda for all the hard work they must have done.

Rob Z, Owner at Best Western Bluegum Motel, responded to this review
It was our pleasure to have you stay with us. What a wonderful compliment for you to say that you want to come back to Dubbo just to stay with us! We're delighted you had a fantastic time exploring the Central West. Thank you for your heart felt feedback and for choosing to stay with us. Best wishes, Manda & Rob (Proud Family Owned Business).

Stayed overnight for a Dubbo work trip. Excellent motel that appears to have brand new rooms. Wonderful service on check in. No onsite restaurant but the in room meal was nice. TV even has Netflix which was a nice bonus. Will definitely make this my go to for future Dubbo trips.

"Top quality accommodation in Dubbo!"

30/07/2018

Last minute change of plans saw us heading to Dubbo so I rang the Bluegum Motel and from that moment our comfort was assured. Great Executive King suite with everything we needed for the perfect stay. Restaurant/Food recommendations by the manager were spot on - haven't eaten so well in memory! All in all what could have been an average weekend turned out great - look forward to returning for a planned stay!

"Gem of a hotel"

26/07/2018

A great hotel with a good size room, comfortable beds, good size bathroom, smart TV with access to Fox and Netflix (good or bad you decide), a bakery across the road and walking distance to central Dubbo all that it has to offer. Car parking and the rooms are quiet for a good nights sleep. Friendly staff at check in as well.

"Superb"

5
24/07/2018

Wow what a gem- so much so I was hesitant to write a review as I note the place regularly had no vacancy whilst we stayed. Beautifully renovated and everything you could want for while traveling on business with friendly helpful staff.

"Very good "

21/07/2018

Newly renovated to a high standard large room with king bed and couch and table large tv with free fox and Netflix. Friendly reception and easy book in. Large car park that fitted our land cruiser and trailer. Bakery next door with good breakfast.

""FANTASTIC""

15/07/2018

Everything you could want in a motel room and so much more. To say we were impressed is an understatement, not only with the room but with the caring service we received. My wife and myself became very ill during our stay which resulted in a trip to the hospital. On our return the owners when over and above to ensure we had everything possible to make our stay comfortable. Thanks guys you made a bad situation so much better.

"impressive renovation"

15/07/2018

Not just another dubbo motel after a sparkling and well thought out refurb of the rooms. Every detail has been bought through. heaps of LED lights, modern switches, crisp and clean decor, compact but highly effective bathroom, coupled with lets technology on TV and Wifi. Microwave and loads of benchspace in the kitchenette. Service at checkin and checkout were polite and helpful. Itwould rank up with best cleanest and most modern motel rooms I've ever seen anywhere. Congrats to the management, you should be proud.

"Wow!"

5
14/07/2018

Super friendly staff. Quick and easy check in/out. Awesome room. Lovely and clean, spacious and well equipped. Electric blanket on the bed which was appreciated on a -4 night. The Netflix and Fox link up is also a nice touch.

"A gem beneath "

5
09/07/2018

On the outside this motel looks like any other but the beautifully refurbished rooms with modern decor and special touches like plunger coffee, large screen TV and electric blankets make this motel better than the ordinary. Check in was efficient and friendly with Kate. Would stay again.

"Modern rooms and friendly staff"

05/07/2018

Second time staying here in 6 months. Definitely the best accomodation in Dubbo. Staff extremely friendly and attentive. Very comfortable bed, big room tv with netflix and several foxtel channels. Will always stay here on future work trips.

29/06/2018

We were pleasantly surprised at how lovely this motel was, newly refurbished, spotlessly clean, comfortable bed, kitchenette with microwave, sink, fridge, crockery and appliances. We found the staff very helpful and friendly. Would not hesitate to stay there again. Overall 10 out of 10!!

"Excellent motel"

27/06/2018

How refreshing, a quality motel in a country town! Clean rooms, modern facilities. Smart TV with free Netflix (clearly Dubbo is lucky enough to have a decent NBN connection). Free wifi, and the basic speed is ample for general use. Option to pay for faster connection. USB charge points bedside. Reasonable nightly rate, and a child free venue! This motel is absolutely on the top of our list next time we are in the area.

"Without Question , A Top Motel, Total Class, Spot On in Every Way"

24/06/2018

Can not speak highly enough about this Motel, Quality in all Fittings, Furniture, Electrical Appliances , Comfortable, Classy yet Relaxed. this is the first review i have ever done. The owners have put a lot of thought into the way they remodelled this Motel, making staying here a real Pleasure. Congratulations to them for a Top Job, Very Well Done.

"Fabulous!"

23/06/2018

We stayed here in early June on our way north to Queensland and were so impressed by this motel, we booked a second stay for our trip home nearly three weeks later. The room is spacious, spotless and extremely comfortable with lovely up to date fixtures. The kitchenette is very well fitted out and the bathroom is large and modern. The huge flat screen tv has extra features such as Netflix and Foxtel. The bed is super comfortable. The hosts go out of their way to be friendly and helpful. What is not to like about Best Western Bluegum Motel?

"Wish I could have stayed longer!"

19/06/2018

Traveling on business for a week and stayed at this wonderfully updated Motel. It's the best in the area. Very clean and comfortable to stay in. I enjoyed the room as well as the streaming Netflix (big plus). There is a café right across the street which you can easily walk to that had great pies and snitzchels. Highly recommend this place and would definitely come back again!

"A touch of class"

16/06/2018

Really well presented and comfortable room and very friendly and accommodating host. Room was already preheated as it was a cold and windy day and helpful suggestions for local restaurants to visit. Well set out kitchen with well stocked provisions in the fridge.

"Fab Stay"

11/06/2018

Great location. Remodelled room with comfortable beds and lots of space in between beds and bench to move around. Large long bench under the tv on the wall for all your travelling small stuff. Full length mirror, table and 2 chairs to sit and eat and a kitchenette. Big shower and spacious bathroom. Rooms face the side street so not too much road noise. I would stay here again when in Dubbo. Recommend this place to all travellers.

"The Only Place to Stay in Dubbo"

5
11/06/2018

The only disappointing thing is that we only got to stay 1 night. Room was immaculately clean. So much space and very comfortable bed. The room had everything you could possibly need, including foxtel and netflix. It was an absolute pleasure staying there. Days later we are still talking about it. The hosts were genuinely friendly and helpful which was such a refreshing change. Will only stay here when I return to Dubbo.

"Very clean and friendly service"

5
11/06/2018

Rooms were immaculate. Milk, biscuits upon arrival and water upon leaving complimentary. Given dinner ideas without prompting. Could hear footsteps in the bottom queen room and some minimal talking so next time will look to book the king. Great wifi speeds and tv options including Foxtel Sport.

"Yes,f the best in Dubbo"

5
07/06/2018

We have bipassed Dubbo in the past because of poor motels but this one has restored our faith. The rooms were clean and a good size with good facilities. Also the bed was very comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. A bonus is a very good coffee shop and bakery across the road. When we return to Dubbo we will definetly stay at Blue Gum.

"Good value. Very clean."

29/05/2018

We stayed 3 nights here recently and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Our room was both clean and comfortable and surprisingly warm despite not using the air-conditioning. Thoroughly recommend and will stay again.

"This is the place to stay..."

27/05/2018

Extremely clean rooms and excellent customer service. I would highly recommend it. The room was spacious and had everything that you would need including electric blankets and Netflix!! I stayed in one of the executive suites. It is a homely place to stay. The small kitchenette had a stocked fridge and microwave. No stove but that wasn't an issue. Overall a great experience

"Love this place!"

5
27/05/2018

Rooms are modern and fresh love the pillow menu...not that we use it but it is a nice touch. The king bed is comfortable and lounge chairs and table with a big tv it almost seems like home. Can't fault the cleanliness and excellent service of staff. Thanks.

"Fabulous, newly renovated!"

5
25/05/2018

This was my 2nd stay for business, and it great! Super friendly owners and extremely clean, newly renovated room! Will be back again! The room was an executive queen, the desk & desk lights were great for finishing off my work when I checked in. Netflix was an added bonus, pity I wasn't there long enough to enjoy it!

"Stay Here"

23/05/2018

Booked a superior Queen room using the hotels website. Received such an informative friendly welcome including map and allocated room 12a. Our room is on the first floor. Beautifully appointed and very clean and well cared for, with everything we needed. We used the open window and did not use the air con. The bed was comfortable and So impressed with the choice of pillows. We slept really well. There is a kitchenette with microwave and kettle and an offer for more cutlery/crockery if needed for self caterers. There was a smart tv with netflix too. There is a small table and 2chairs. Wifi is free and fast. Our ensuite had plenty of storage space and nice towels. The rain shower was wonderful and easily accessed. There is a window to the outside. The motel offers a cooked breakfast and a nightly meal, but we did not use either. We did use their recommendation of a restaurant in easy walking distance called Bellotti's on the same side of the street as the hotel. Excellent recommendation. We recommend staying here.

"How fabulous is this place!"

5
14/05/2018

We travel through Dubbo perhaps 4 times a year, and we always stay at this other hotel- which had become tired with new disinterested owners. So after looking around found this place with great reviews. The outside looks like a neat tidy Best Western, however, the room we have is a real delight. Apart from being spotless, the interior is modern & sleek with coffee pod machine, comfy king bed, bathrobes, nice lighting. Reception was efficient & welcoming. Id say it is on par with The Cattlemans in Armadale. Another exceptional regional hotel. Would I stay and recommend again? Definitely.

"Just excellent"

5
09/05/2018

Exceptionally clean modern room that has everything you need. Free wi-fi and netflix, excellent breakfast, a large and spacious room and even an electric vehicle charging station. Bed was comfy and service was excellent. I agree with other reviewers that this is the best hotel that I have stayed at in regional NSW.

"One Of The Best Motels in Regional NSW"

5
08/05/2018

I travel extensively across NSW and the ACT and have to say that the BW Bluegum Motel is one of the best that I have ever stayed in. From the warm and genuine welcome, through to the very stylish and tastefully renovated rooms, this is with out doubt the only place to stay when you are in Dubbo. If it is booked out, delay your trip until there is a vacancy!!

"Thank you so much"

06/05/2018

Just want to say a big thank you to Amanda and Rob for our wonderful stay at there lovely Bluegum Motel.. Our room was so lovely with all the comforts you could ask for while away.. from the beautiful presentation of the room ,to the choice of pillows upon request for a relaxing good night sleep.. So when in Dubbo we highly recommend the Best Western Bluegum Motel.

"Fantastic rooms and friendly staff"

5
04/05/2018

One of the best motel rooms I have stayed in. The recently renovated rooms and friendly welcome on arrival make this the reason it's the number one place to stay in Dubbo. Pillow menu, huge flat screen TV, new coffee pod machine... the list goes on.

"Resort Style Hotel as a Motel"

5
19/04/2018

I read nothing but good reviews about this place before going here which helped the decision to stay here. And boy did it live up to the expectation. Yes this place still looks like an ordinary motel from the front. What you would expect in a country town. As soon as you walk into the room, your instantly transported to a resort style hotel like you would find on the Gold Coast. This place has undergone a major renovation in the rooms to make it a very modern hotel feel. WiFi was perfect. Super fast and always active. The room was divine. Comfy bed, modern and clean bathroom, new Samsung TVs and soundbar included (a first I've seen!!). Netflix available in all rooms along with Foxtel channels. This place will definitely be a spot to stay when I'm back in town.

"Very clean and spacious"

I would really recommend Bluegum Motel,I travel a lot for business the quality of the service is above and beyond of some of the Major hotel chains. The room I stayed in was amazing and the offer the pillow selection was offered. Great advise on places to eat. Look forward to staying with them in the future. Marc Gammage

"Delightful in so many ways!"

05/04/2018

What a great find, I'll definitely be staying with Rob and Manda at Bluegum for future Dubbo trips. Their service excellence and attention to detail was fantastic, they did everything and seemed to have thought of everything to make the stay an excellent one. From decent plunger coffee to a pillow menu, I had a better stay here than in some 5 star chains. Well done and thank for the loan of the bike!

"Outstanding place to stay!!!!!!"

04/04/2018

Hotel was very easy to find and has plenty of quality restaurants to pick from nearby. Reception was very nice and informative with places to go to for dinner and knowledgeable about Easter opening times of the various restaurants. Room was very modern with all the luxuries. nice and clean with huge bathroom. Heads up its definitely worth going the king bed option!

"Everything was great!"

5
03/04/2018

Nicely upgraded room and quiet, great friendly service and nice room service food. Manda & Robert make you feel very welcome and are very caring ensuring you are comfortable and have everything you need. A welcome surprise in a regional location and certainly a standout for Dubbo.

"Exceeded Expectations"

02/04/2018

One night stay after a week out west for work. This motel is a credit to the managers. Spotless inside and out, you can tell a lot of time is spent on the upkeep. The room was spacious and well appointed. Very modern. They even offer Netflix. I will be back next time I pass through Dubbo.

"What a Gem! "

30/03/2018

What an absolute gem this place is. Tidy from the outside however once in your room... Wow! As soon as you walk into reception you know these guys have refurbished. It's as good as walking into any 5 star seriously! Clean tidy and very good front counter service. The room are modern, practical and a good size. I still can't believe the pillow menu!! I stay all. Over the country and mainly in metro cities. I don't get offered that anywhere. This is up there with the best. It may not look it from the outside but this is 5 star stuff! My only choice when in Dubbo.

"Delivered as Promised"

"Perfect place to stay"

25/03/2018

We had two one night stopovers here, one on our way to Outback Queensland and South Australia and one back to Sydney. The motel has recently been renovated to a high standard. The rooms are large and very comfortable. They have a large tv, free internet, desk and chair, two armchairs and small table and there is also a well equipped kitchenette. A big bonus is a pillow menu which is rare in motel type accommodation but as the bed and the pillows on the bed were so so comfortable there was no need to change pillows. The hosts, Rob and Manda, are exceptionally welcoming and their recommendations of where to eat for a good meal are spot on. I would highly recommend staying here, you won't be disappointed.

"Blue Gum Motel is way above average"

12/03/2018

Good service starts from our phone booking, to the fantastic rooms, so beautifully appointed, and room service meals are seriously first class, we always have a great stay at Blue Gum Motel Dubbo. Also really appreciate Blue Gum's recommendations for local eating houses, always spot on.

"Wow is this really a Best Western"

11/03/2018

What a great Motel , fully renovated and modern . This motel is better than the newest Oaks, Mantras etc . No road noise , cleanliness exceptional price very reasonable compared to the old rubbish I have stayed in before at similar prices . We had a king size bed ,with a pillow menu that's right a pillow menu , what a great nights sleep. Internet was great and free , and if you want it a bit faster for business they can do this as well, free Netflix and Foxtel Nothing is to much trouble for this motel, the air con was on ensuring the room was cool on arrival ,services at its best . The manager very accomoding when booking as I enquired about a longer vehicle to park, and when we arrive he suggested places to eat for lunch and dinner . This will be the only accomodation I'll stay in Dubbo when passing thru next time.

"Service and welcome matched only by the superbly appointed rooms"

Service and welcome matched only by the superbly appointed rooms. The check-in was refreshingly attentive and I was made feel very welcome and that no demand was too much. Good old fashioned country service in brand new refurbished premises.

"Amazing hospitality"

11/03/2018

My husband and I stayed at this Motel for our wedding anniversary weekend away and absolutely loved it. From the moment we arrived Amanda and Rob pointed out things of interest and had a list of things to choose from. As we arrived around 7pm they suggested a great place for a meal that night. The room was so spacious and you even get to choose your favourite type of pillow. Highly recommend this Motel. You can tell they have done a lot of work with renovations as the Motel looks amazing. Despite being on the highway we did not hear a lot of noise. Love that you enter from a side street and not the highway.

"Brilliant"

07/03/2018

I stayed here for a one night in Dubbo with two of my girlfriends. We were very impressed with the size of the room, the queen and single bed were super comfy and more than enough for the three of us. The room was very clean and tidy and well maintained with new amenities. Having Netflix accessible was such a bonus, and provided that extra level of comfort and entertainment. To be honest the best part about our stay was the lovely staff. From all the friendly suggestions at check in to the complimentary water at check-out it made us feel very welcome and well-looked after. It is rare to see this level of hospitality or care anymore, and it was very much appreciated by us all. We will definitely be choosing bluegum best western when we are next in Dubbo.

"Fantastic comfortable rooms"

By far the best place we stayed in Dubbo, rooms were very clean and service was excellent, highly recommended. It's a child free motel, which meant peace and quiet, no noisy screaming kids running around.

Stayed in Dubbo many times finally found one id come back to. It's newly refurbished, rooms are large, fresh and have everything you could ask for including a modern small kitchen area with sink, microwave, fridge/minibar, kettle and toaster. There's a great size work desk, seating area and large screen tv with free to air, Foxtel and Netflix. Rob was extremely friendly during my late checkin and recommended a great Indian locally. Will definitely be back.

Had another great stay with clean and tidy rooms. Little things make a big difference like a great mattress and pillow menu for a good night sleep. Netflix and large TVs are a great bonus. Took advantage of the in-house facilities like the clean swimming pool, in room coffee machine and ice brick freezing service. Will definitely stay here again.

We were checked in by Rob this time and he knew who we were even though we hadn't stayed here for 3 months! This is the 4th time I have stayed here and I will stay here EVERY time that I visit Dubbo, you should as well. They normally do a very good job in recommending local restaurant however they let us down tonight. I would recommend that you expand your dinner options onsite for guests, I would pay good money for a dinner delivered with the same quality as your accommodation.

Rob Z, Owner at Best Western Bluegum Motel, responded to this review
Of course we remember you :-) Thank you for your excellent feedback and continued support and loyalty. We appreciate it more than you may know. We continue to strive to achieve excellence for each and every guest, and take on board your comments regarding dinner options. We try and mix up our in-room service menu as much as possible to keep it interesting; perhaps there was something we previously had on the menu that you were hoping for. I will give you a quick call to enquire. Thank you for your 2nd fabulous TA review - we look forward to welcoming you back soon. Best wishes, Manda & Rob (Proud Family Owned Business)

Front room (room 2) was the cleanest Motel room that I have ever stayed with exceptionally comfortable bed. The staff at check-in could not have been more welcoming and extremely helpful. Good location however front rooms are somewhat noisy.

Rob Z, Owner at Best Western Bluegum Motel, responded to this review
What a delight to have you and your colleagues stay with us; we appreciate the excellent work you are doing around the country. Thank you for your excellent feedback on our accommodation and hospitality. We are very proud of our housekeeping staff (and we tell them so), and the excellent work they do on a daily basis. Sorry to hear you experienced some noise; we installed double glazed windows and extra sound proofing during our renovations but I guess it doesn't cancel out all noise. I will make a note in our reservation system so we can suggest a different room next time. Thank you again for your excellent marks on cleanliness, comfort and service. Best wishes, Manda & Rob (Proud Family Owned Business)

We're delighted to hear you loved your overnight stay with us.

I shouldn't tell you what a wonderful motel this is, it will become even more popular and it will be hard to get a room! This is definately the best motel in Dubbo, always friendly staff and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are spacious and really clean. You tell call that thought has gone into room design. Beds are really comfy and there is a pillow menu. There is a desk and comfortable office chair, which is important when I am working in the room. The pool is immaculate and food is great.

Rob Z, Owner at Best Western Bluegum Motel, responded to this review
Oh QueenBee, you never fail to disappoint :-) You are always a delight; thank you for your true loyalty and genuine support over the years. We're delighted to know that you consider us to be the best motel in Dubbo - very proud moment. We look forward to welcoming you back in a couple of weeks.

"Faultless Dubbo Accomodation"

5
10/02/2018

We stayed at Dubbo's Best Western Blue Gum Hotel in mid February (9/2-11/2) and had a great time! From the moment we arrived, hotel managers Rob and Manda provided excellent service and were incredibly helpful in assisting us with places to eat and things to do/see while in Dubbo. I've stayed in many hotels across Australia and Europe, and none provided such a quality customer service as Dubbo's Blue Gum. It's easy to see why they're so highly reviewed. The pool was always clean, and perfect to cool off during a warm day. The rooms looked freshly renovated and were faultless in comfort and cleanliness. The car park even has a couple of Tesla chargers for those with electric vehicles and there's a few windscreen washing buckets too. The front of the hotel was undergoing a bit of renovation, though there was no noise and it looked like it was almost done. Definitely of one the more modern styled places to stay in Dubbo. In my experience, this hotel is one of, if not THE best accommodation in Dubbo. Also a huge thank you to the housekeeping team (in particular Janine) for their meticulous standards and great assistance with local attractions. The room was perfect to return to after a big day at the zoo. I would highly recommend a stay at Rob and Manda's hotel, and will be returning on my next stay to Dubbo.

Rob Z, Owner at Best Western Bluegum Motel, responded to this review
Thank you Kieran! Your heart-felt feedback means the absolute world to Rob and I and our fabulous housekeeping team. Jenene was over the moon to receive your personal feedback on how well she made up the room during your stay. We strive for excellence every day, and are always looking for new ways to improve our guest experience. Your positive feedback makes this all worth while. Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We look forward to welcoming you back on another occasion. Best wishes, Manda & Rob (Proud Family Owned Business)

"SENSATIONAL - The best regional Motel in town! "

05/02/2018

If you ever find yourself in beautiful Dubbo, one of NSW most charming regional towns, you cannot beat this fantastic Motel! I've stayed at hundreds of Motels over the years in regional towns of Australia and this one is the best I've ever experienced. Beautifully and newly renovated from head to toe, spotless and appointed with up to date technology including Netflix and free Wifi, its more like a mini Crown Plaza! From the moment you check in with the charming Amanda who is co-owner/operator with her hubby, you are welcomed with a smile and friendly chat, breakfast order and overview of whats on offer. They are obviously passionate about what they do and how they do it and it shows! You won't be disappointed!

So refreshing to have a friendly voice on the other end of the phone when making a booking (whilst travelling from Melbourne) - Thanks Robert!! I booked a King Size Executive Room, of course a king size bed (not too hard), comfy pillows, beautifully presented, great facilities, and everything in the right place. Robert even turned the air conditioning on, fresh milk and some jazz music playing in the room on late arrival. Quiet location with no noise from the highway. Perfect location for some R & R before hitting the road again to head to Brisbane. I will definitely booking to stay here again when I next visit Dubbo - easy decision.

"Outstanding Comfort and Service"

04/02/2018

Thanks to all who have written previous reviews, we chose the Bluegum for a 2 night stay in Dubbo. A warm greeting, spotlessly clean room, very comfortable King bed with numerous pillow styles to choose from, Netflix, espresso machine, robes, pool & towels, restaurant recommendations and booking - we couldn't have asked for better.

We stayed here over the Australia Day long weekend and were super impressed by the modern rooms, free netflix and pillow menu. It felt like a 5 star hotel. Rob & Manda were amazing hosts, friendly & full of local knowledge & recommendations. The pool was great for a quick cool down, which we definitely needed. The peace & quiet was the icing on the cake. Would happily stay here again & wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

27/01/2018

We spent two nights at this motel and have nothing to praise for the owners and the accommodation. It's recently renovated, immaculately presented and has every facility that you can think of. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel welcome with helpful staff who genuinely went above and beyond to assist us. The recommendations for things to do, places to eat and directions around Dubbo was fantastic and very much appreciated. Netflix as well as Foxtel channels is a huge bonus and something that many five star motels we stay at so not have! The 16 years and older policy is fantastic and enjoyed we had an enjoyable break. We can not recommend Best Western Bluegum any more highly!

"This hotel is outstanding!! "

27/01/2018

I've stayed in a lot of motels in my time, but this was by far the best!! Modest hotel from the outside, but they had such beautifully renovated rooms. The place was spotless but cozy, bathrooms were very spacious and a small kitchenette was perfect for our stay. Netflix was also a total bonus!! Very quiet and relaxing. Manda and Rob were lovely at reception and they gave us excellent directions and lovely recommendations on what to do and where to eat. Would definitely stay here again.

Thank you for a very comfortable stay, despite the high temperatures. Great air con, comfortable bed, well appointed rooms, surprisingly quiet for CBD location, children-free and a fabulous salt water pool. I've stayed the night in many dubbo motels and this is by far the best. Thank you.

Thank you Katherine for letting us know how much you enjoyed your stay. We've had lots of guests let us know how much they enjoyed the pool this summer; even regular guests who have stayed with us for years have been making full use of it now that we are an adults only property. Its been a little oasis during the hot summer. We're delighted that you found your room to be clean, comfortable and quiet with a great bed and aircon. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

The rooms in this motel have undergone a stunning makeover. The queen suite we has was spacious, well appointed, cool and modern. Quality is impressive. Absolutely no noise from passing traffic, coupled with a 'child free' policy makes this place a winner for a weary traveller wanting a comfortable rest. The pillow menu is a nice touch to guarantee a great nights rest. All staff were very hospitable and made us feel very welcome.

Rob Z, Owner at Best Western Bluegum Motel, responded to this review
We're delighted to know that you appreciated having a kid-free accommodation option. We've only recently transitioned to become Dubbo's first and only, child free property. There are so many excellent family-friendly options in Dubbo but none that purely focus on the leisure and business traveller needs and wants. The serenity at the pool area in particular has been enjoyed by many guests. We're delighted you enjoyed our newly renovated rooms, pillow menu and facilities. We look forward to welcoming you back next time you travel to or through Dubbo. Best wishes, Manda & Rob (Proud family owned business)

We had a bit of a drama on arrival as my husband cut his leg badly on the car door. Manda drove him to the Emergency Department where he had 15 stitches. Our room was lovely, recently renovated and everything was great. The two complimentary bottles of water on departure was most welcome. We had requested a ground floor and that is what we got. Recommend this place highly.

Rob Z, Owner at Best Western Bluegum Motel, responded to this review
It was no trouble at all to take Roger to the Hospital -- I could tell it was a nasty cut! 15 stitches is even more than I anticipated. The patient seemed like he was feeling better the next morning ;-) he even made a couple of jokes.

Stayed for a short family get away. Was blown away by how nice the room was the bed was very comfortable loved the choice of pillows and free Netflix plus its very quiet place. Customer service was great when i called to add a night only days before. I guess the only downside is that its now a no kids motel. But hey if u have no kids or they are over 16 or its for business i would highly recommend this hotel.

We're delighted to know that you were blown away by our accommodation and hospitality. We're so proud to offer comfortable, newly renovated rooms and top of the line facilities.

A couple of board games and a pack of cards to use during our stay. Fabulous tv. Great sound with a choice of Netflix and Stan. So much choice. Very comfortable bed. Great aircon as it was very hot weather during our stay. Very well appointed bathroom products and a shower cap with a hair elastic inside. A small nail file and a sewing emergency kit. Nice smelling bath gel and shampoo and conditioner etc. Our room had a shower only but it was clean and had good water pressure. An ironing board and steam iron in wardrobe. Good hairdryer. Very clean rooms and newly and tastefully refurbished too. A swimming pool with extra towels for the pool. Only a 10 minute drive to the Western Plains Zoo. The staff are so friendly and really help to accommodate all your needs. I highly recommend the Best Western Blue Gum Motel in Dubbo.

The bathroom was the perfect size and exceptionally clean with fluffy white towels and luxury shampoo, conditioner, hand and body lotion and soaps. The kitchenette was well stocked with tea, coffee and hot chocolate, and we were given milk when checking in. Very large tv screen with Netflix. Free wifi. Aircon. Friendly, fast check in.

10/11/2017

This motel is newly renovated and the rooms are lovely. They really have thought of everything. 2 leather lounge chairs that you can actually curl up in to watch the (enormous) TV with complimentary Netflix. A table with 2 chairs for eating the meals that you can prepare in the kitchenette. A kitchenette with crockery and cutlery, dishwashing liquid, cloths and tea towel. Just perfect for making your own breakfast (there's also a toaster and microwave) or ordering take away. The bathroom has lovely mini amenities, replenished daily, plus nice clean white towels. The bed was really comfortable, with nice pillows and triple sheeted. There is a pillow menu if the pillows aren't to your liking. They offer a washing service, and I left a bag a washing in the morning, returned to my room in the afternoon, only $25. Really friendly and helpful managers who took my details even though they were fully booked. They rang me back the next day after a cancellation. If I was to try and find something negative to say, it would be the lack of drawers for clothes in the room. Adequate hanging space, but a couple of drawers would also be nice. I won't stay anywhere else in Dubbo now (if they have availability).

Reading your amazing feedback Lee makes us feel very proud. Thank you! We're absolutely delighted that you enjoyed your 4 night stay, and that you had everything you needed and more.

This was one of the better motels we stayed at on a recent road trip. On arrival we were a little concerned as there was some renovations going on to Reception and the kitchen. However, little or no noise reached our room. Staff were pleasant and helpful. The room was brand new and in pristine, clean condition. We spent a pleasant night and managed a good night's sleep. No noise was transmitted from other units and road noise could not be heard - which is surprising as the motel is on the highway. We didn't have breakfast, so cannot comment. Enjoyed our stay and we will stay here again.

Rob Z, Owner at Best Western Bluegum Motel, responded to this review
Thank you for your wonderful feedback Allan. We're so pleased to read that our reception renovations did not disrupt your stay. It is the last piece of the puzzle, now that our guest rooms are so beautiful. Also glad to hear that you found the room to be quiet - free of road noise and adjoining neighbours. We're fortunate to have a solid brick building (including internal walls) which helps. We'd be delighted to welcome you back. Thank you again for letting us know how much you enjoyed your stay.

We stayed two nights at Best Western Bluegum Motel in early October 2017. It was a beautifully presented, recently renovated room. It was very clean, had lovely finishes and lighting and had a comfortable amount of space for my husband, our daughter and me to rest and relax. The onsite manager was very personable and gave some excellent recommendations for eating out and things to do. The small kitchenette was well stocked and extra cutlery and crockery was available if we wanted to self cater.

Have stayed at more expensive places in Dubbo on business trips but was pleasantly surprised at the BW Bluegum. My room was right up there with the best, modern and very clean, good facilities including Netflix (if I had time to watch it). Can't fault the service from Rob and Manda. A little further to walk to the main street if eating out but at $70/night less it covers taxi and the meal.

From the moment we entered the room, we could see the quality of the furnishings and decor. The bathroom and kitchenette area very clean and modern. The king size bed extremely comfortable. Definitely stay here again.

"A fresh and clean new look for this motel"

22/10/2017

We only stayed overnight and had to select a Motel from the many just on superficial looks from the outside. We were really glad we chose the Bluegum, it matched the external clean and modern look with a recently renovated lovely room. The bed was comfortable (no need to use their pillow selection as the one on the bed was fantastic) and the facilities were excellent and very spacious. All our dealings with staff members and owners of the Motel both at check in and our subsequent little 'hiccup' with the bikes on the back of my vehicle were excellent. I would thoroughly recommend this Motel over many others that we have stayed at.

"A piece of luxury in Dubbo"

I have now stayed at the Blue Gum on a number of occasions for business and really enjoy the little bit of luxury, you are greeted with a very warm and welcoming smile, nothing is a trouble and everything at your finger tips, close to the city centre and in- room service meals are offered, the breakfast is really a welcome start to your day and also yummy.

"An extremely pleasant stay"

We stayed in a an executive king room. It had many modern and lovely touches, which made you feel very comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble with the owner, he was also helpful with various dinner options.

"A Western Gem"

07/10/2017

Highly recommended. If you are travelling to r via Dubbo, this is the place to stay. Run by a delightful couple who are courteous and efficient. Terrific rooms, clean and modern. The only downside is that although there was a microwave in my room, the only cutlery was a bottle opener and tea spoons blue no plates or bowls. There also is no restaurant on the premises but room service is provided and there are many restaurants nearby. Plus there is a very good pie and cake shop right opposite the hotel. The country cooked breakfast (served in your room) provides an appetising and great start to the day. Without a restaurant (which really isn't necessary) the highest star rating that can be given is 4. However, when grading the ambience, comfort and service, I have no hesitation in rating my stay as "excellent" - 5 tripAdviser "bulls-eyes"!

Very tastefully refurbished room with very comfortable beds and pillows. Loved the pillow menu and tiny bottles of real milk that were provided. It was a surprise to find a well stocked mini fridge and neat little kitchenette. Also very accommodating staff who allowed us to leave our push bikes safely in the garage overnight. Would most definitely stay again.

"Wonderful Stay"

Great to see a modern motel with well thought out rooms and trendy touches. Loved my stay from the friendly owners, comfortable stylish rooms (loved free netflix) to the very accessible car parking and easy location.

Top notch rooms and customer service. Walked into the room and thought I was in Melbourne or Sydney at a trendy new motel. Lots of special touches. Family loved the free Netflix. Great job. Thank you. Will definitely return.

"modern new rooms with free wi-fi and netflix"

03/10/2017

We stayed in queen executive room. Spacious and clean. Updated kitchenette and bathroom. It has a mini fridge (no freezer), kettle, toaster, glasses, cups and wine glasses. If you choose self catering you just ask at reception for extra crockery and cutlery. The big bonus is free Netflix and Wi-Fi.

"Enjoyable stay"

We stayed her for one night when we attended a 21st in Dubbo. Our daughter decided to come at the last minute and the owners were very accomodating in finding a room for us. All staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.

"Excellent Service 5 star accomodation"

02/10/2017

I stay here on a monthly basis but I have missed the last two months, Rob and Manda the hosts, still remember who I was and added that personal touch. The refurbish rooms are amazing and I recommend anyone, if your planning a trip to Dubbo, book this place early.

Best Western Bluegum Motel is the BEST . Beautiful stylish room comfy bed with a choice of pillows . Excellent wi-fi ,net flicks n Foxtel , toiletries - even make-up removers! Rob and Manda thought of everything and on check- in were so helpful. They offered suggestions for local restaurants , a local map , bottled milk for tea n coffee .

We love the Bluegum, our family stays here whenever we have something on in Dubbo. I also chose the Bluegum when travelling for work. A quiet location with friendly staff who are only too happy to help! Rooms are modern and roomy and always clean. Several comforting bonuses' such as the pillow selection, large shower heads and Netflix!

Staying at the Best Western Bluegum Motel was a fantastic experience. You couldn't ask for better hosts than Rob and Amanda so helpful and obliging, nothing was to much trouble. The rooms were clean and very Modern, you wouldn't want for anything more. Comfortable bed with a big screen TV. We have booked again for the next year it was so good, and we wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Lucky enough to get in to BW on Sunday night and extended to Monday night. Booked on TA reviews and not disappointed. Spotless rooms and friendly hosts. Quiet room (No.1) despite being just off main road. Local Sth Dubbo Tavern has a courtesy bus pick up for tea. Only con was a smell from drain in the bathroom, but nothing serious. Host Robert worked at last minute request for extension, although heavily booked. Will stay again.

I stay at the Best Western Bluegum Motel whenever I am in Dubbo for business. It is the next best thing to being at home. Lovely clean renovated rooms, fantastic home cooked meals and friendly second to none service from hosts Rob and Manda. Noise has never been an issue unlike a lot of other Motels I have stayed at in Dubbo. Can't recommend it highly enough.

I have stayed here a number of times and they never disappoint. It has been renovated recently and is very clean. They are also very considerate; they have Netflix on TV, blanket warmer, heating (that actually works) fresh milk in little bottles, make up removal wipes, plunger coffee.. the place is absolutely amazing. Super friendly staff. Possibly the best place I've EVER stayed at!

"Very modern comfortable rooms"

11/09/2017

Our room was bright and airy. The fittings were modern and very functional. The bed was comfortable. We had a choice of pillow types which was a nice touch. The bathroom toiletries were superb. A nice big flat screen TV with all local channels plus Netflix and a selection of Foxtel channels. Free WiFi was offered but I was unable to successfully connect. It would continually drop out. If you have to have WiFi for business use, I wouldn't stay here unless it is improved. Apart from that, this motel was top of its class. The food service to rooms was great and of very high quality.

Great place to stay on our little adventure. Friendly staff and very clean facilities. Would have been nice to have stayed in one of the more modern rooms but all booked out. Nice and close to the zoo

"Fantastic -- looks like a normal motel from outside, luxury hotel inside "

5
06/09/2017

I have been lucky enough to stay in some of the nicest hotels and resorts in the world during travels, and while I am not putting this hotel on 5* luxury scale - it was one of our most enjoyable stays, the customer service and friendliness was fantastic, and the extras like netflix and complimentary water when leaving was just such a nice touch. The inside of the room and bathroom was fantastic and the tv and speakers great, rainshower so nice, and we couldn't have asked for a better stay. Room service doesnt happen on Friday nights which was the only downside as not much of a range of delivery options in Dubbo, but this was totally fine and is me searching for something to say and really wasnt an issue at all Would happily stay again if i ever am back in dubbo and recommend to all

"Fabulous Room. New modern and clean"

We had a King suite on the upper level. It is always a pleasure to return as Rob and Amanda make you feel at home. The bed is extremely comfortable and supportive plus a selection of pillows to choose from. The room was very clean and has a fresh new feel. Highly recommended

21/08/2017

This property is simply splendid! And the staff magnificent. I've stayed five star before and this recently renovated property is right up there - and its in Dubbo! Rob and Amanda are also the helpful property managers you could ask for. Electric blanket, properly operating air conditioner, choice of five different pillow types, free wifi - the list goes on. And a long work bench style desk to work on is perfect for the business types...me. Have a look at the light switches! (Yes, I'm picky)

"Didn't expect such good quality in a simple motel. "

20/08/2017

We wanted something simple as we knew we just wanted a place to sleep one night in Dubbo but after seeing the quality of the room, we wished we'd booked for longer. Lots of local advice for dinner and breakfast from the people in reception too. I can highly recommend this place.

"A surprising gem that's not obvious from the outside"

19/08/2017

We were here for a road trip to the Western Plains Zoo and booked off Trip Advisor. Very pleased we did, really spacious and comfortable rooms with a small kitchenette, very comfy beds, free WiFi and Netflix for free. Good location and really wonderful friendly staff and everything to make a stay very comfortable.

"Definitely a find"

5
18/08/2017

We visit Dubbo for work a few times a year and have stayed at several locations, all of which have been fine but not great. Now we have found "great". Bluegum looks like any other motel on the main drag but don't let the looks deceive you. Modern rooms, every creature comfort you could want (including a range of pillow options) and excellent, friendly service. This is now our accommodation of choice in Dubbo.

"Another perfect stay"

5
17/08/2017

As always a great place to stay, by far the best spot in Dubbo. Friendly staff are always accommodating, newly renovated rooms with high speed internet and Netflix on every TV is just the start. The beds are extremely comfortable, even more so now with a pillow menu too. To other Motel and Hotel owners......take note, this is how it should be done!

"Lovely modern rooms"

17/08/2017

The room was nicely refurbished in very modern and contemporary style and colours. Very spacious throughout. Excellent small kitchenette which was very handy. Bathroom was modern and bright, shower plenty big enough with great pressure and hot water. Makeup mirror was excellent. Room cleanliness was excellent. Good hospitality at front reception. My only complaint is the road noise. Perhaps it would be quieter towards the back of the motel. If it wasn't for the road noise, I'd have given my stay 5 stars.

"Highly recommend!"

14/08/2017

Very up to date room. Clean, sleek and comfortable. Customer service was fabulous and very informative, we were given some great recommendations for cafes, restaurants and tours. I could not speak higher of the best western bluegum motor inn.

13/08/2017

We had a wonderful homely experience. We were only able to be offered an non- refurbished due to full house. Despite such, it was incredibly clean and beds were comfort plus. The breakfast the next day was just as warm and homely as room.

"Highly recommended!"

10/08/2017

We stayed here when visiting Dubbo to search for permanent accommodation. The owners were great, they were more than happy to help with any requests and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable during our stay. The room was fantastic, newly renovated and spacious with facilities to make your own meals if you want to, better than a number of inner city hotels we have stayed in. I will be recommending to anyone visiting Dubbo, as it is miles in front of other outdated motels in the area.

"Beautifully appointed rooms and warm friendly service - nothing is too much trouble"

10/08/2017

Rob and Amanda are always very quick to volunteer help, by arranging a meal or organising transport. They seem to know what you're after before you even ask. They've invested substantially in the fit-out and the rooms are spectacular. Located in 'the motel strip' of Dubbo, it's a little out of the main shopping centre but I found it easy enough to walk the distance a couple of times a day. The Blue Gum is a great place to stay.

"Recommended place to stay"

08/08/2017

No complaints here.I booked this motel on the TripAdvisor advice / rating. Gentleman (I'm guessing the owner) on check-in was very helpful on local places to eat, things to see etc. Rooms were spotless & well presented. Motel grounds are well kept. Wifi worked well & were at speeds higher than the room guide book stated. A bigscreen TV with included Netflix & some foxtel etc Bluegum Motel is not the cheapest motel in Dubbo, but you can see that the rooms have been upgraded & very modern. Motel owners are obviously doing a good job. :-)

"A ver clean and comfortable motel"

08/08/2017

The room was well appointed and the bathroom was clean and well equipped. The bed was comfortable and had an electric blanket to keep me warm. Reception was friendly and gave good advice on where to eat (room service is also an option). I would stay here again.

Room very good. Bath room very nice. Good make up mirror. Daughter very happy. Plenty of pillow choice. Although on the highway the room's all on the side street - so no highway noise. Easy walk to restaurants and café. Enjoyed the good rest.

"Superb Accomodation"

03/08/2017

We stayed in Dubbo for 2 nights to visit the zoo with our 4 year old. We chose this gem after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor, and it did not disappoint. The room was fresh, clean and comfortable. We found the customer service exceptional, Rob gave us some great tips for dining options, and the room service brekkie was amazing too. It was also nice to get back to the room after a busy day at the zoo - and the room had been serviced, beds made and tea/coffee and biscuits restocked. Just what we needed. Thank you! I am sure we will be back.

"Excellent appointments"

The fabulous decor was a real surprise, very stylish and highly functional. The welcome provided by the hosts was also excellent, with very good advice about the various eating options and the range of interesting things to do in this very friendly town.

"One of the best"

31/07/2017

We've stayed at numerous motels over the years, but this has to be one of the best. We had a two night stay, while we visited the Open Range Zoo. The premier king room we had was` very clean, had a huge TV on the wall, and a lovely bathroom. The hotel is not within walking distance of the centre of Dubbo, but there is a good bakery over the road, and an Italian restaurant not far away. The tourist advise received from the manager was helpful, and the two bottles of complimentary water were very much appreciated.

I stayed in unit 1 which was just renovated 6 months ago, room was clean fresh and very modern big screen TV Mini bar fully self-contained. It was very well set out for the business person, sales rep having to stop overnight or a couple of nights stay. The owners very friendly & helpful packing easy the place very central to everything can not fault the place. Had a lovely breakfast was awesome. Complimentary water on checkout was a nice touch. Would recommend to friends and family passing through to stay here.

Once again the BW Bluegum Motel and hosts Rob and Manda fail to disappoint on every level! The rooms are modern, spotless and comfortable. The breakfasts was great and served as usual right on the dot - it's never late! Rob and Manda are able to advise places to dine - although on previous visits I've dined in-room. All meals home cooked and both tasty and at a reasonable price. Bluegum is Tripadvisor winner 2 years in a row - for a reason!

We have stayed twice. Such well thought out, comfortable rooms. Lovely, relaxing atmosphere, great service. The little touches, like, a small sink so you can rinse cups etc that you use. A special slot for the ironing board. Extra blankets in a bag neatly placed in the wardrobe. The lovely consumables. The glass fronted fridge. Very tasteful and elegant. Free Netflix, what a bonus. Very comfortable bed. Lucky Dubbo having such a nice motel.

20/07/2017

I haven't even finished my stay here and I felt like I needed to rave about this place. What a great hotel! The room is very modern, clean and everything works like it should. Even the wifi works well which is really unusual in my experience (I travel a lot for work and rely on hotel wifi). The hotel is reasonably close to the main street of town but I don't think you need to stray to far given that the in-room menu sounds great. I have had an awesome hot shower, ordered my dinner online for in-room service and now sit here very relaxed in a plush bath robe writing this review trying to decide if I want to watch Netflix or Stan (both available). Well done Bluegum! Highly recommended for work or play.

We stayed at this motel for a night during our recent trip to Dubbo. When we entered the room, I could hear a big WOW from my 6 year old son. He even said that he could stay at this motel for a few days. It's a fantastic motel! Everything inside looks brand new and very very clean. The owner paid a lot of attention to small details. I like how they have plenty of power points and they are located very close to the bed side as well for convenience. Lots of space inside the room. Lighting was fantastic too! It's got all the things you need inside and it's very well presented. And last but not the least - the hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating. And did I mention that they have free fast wifi, netflix and a huge TV? I would highly recommend this motel to friends and family who will be visiting Dubbo.

We stayed in the King Suite for one night during our stay in Dubbo and the room was excellent! Newly renovated, modern touches, free wifi and Netflix. Better than some of the hotels we've stayed in in Sydney and probably cheaper! Staff were also very welcoming and helpful during our stay.

Stayed here for one night while in town for work. Looks like it has been recently renovated and WOW is my impression. In relation to my room.....great room, comfortable bed, choice of additional pillows, beautiful bathroom, large screen tv, reverse cycle air con. These guys have outdone themselves....I've stayed in some impressive places around the world and have paid amounts of money to suit, however, for a regional NSW town, affordable nightly rate for a newly renovated residence. Well done! I'll be back soon.

The new owners have put a great deal of work into rejuvenating this classic motel and their work has really paid off. The rooms are very stylish, spacious and thoughtfully laid out with thoughtful modern amenities. Unlimited high speed internet, Foxtel, Netflix and a bevy of other streaming services available for free make it very tempting to just relax in the room. The staff have been very pleasant and helpful on every encounter.

This was my first time to Dubbo in almost 6 years, again on business. What a turnaround! This place is perfect. A very tasteful and nicely done refurbishment that would put many top rated hotels to shame. Clean, well appointed, quiet and effective air conditioning, complimentary Foxtel and Netflix as well as wifi should you need it, usb charging points, plenty of towels, comfortable bed, and great service on front desk. They also do room service for breakfast that you can order the night before and choose what time you want delivered. I would absolutely stay here again next time I'm in Dubbo for work. You won't find better value.

"Top renovation"

04/07/2017

Rob and Manda are to be congratulated on an outstanding renovation of their motel. We stayed in an old room on a visit to Dubbo in 2016. This year we had a new room, upstairs, and they have done a superb job: the room was functional, modern, and spotlessly clean. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Dubbo.

Located on the main drag of Dubbo this place has recently been renovated so don't let looks from the outside fool you. The owners are super friendly and always have a welcoming smile waiting, and a free bottle of water or piece of fruit for your travels. Close to everything this place is great value for money. Its my choice for accomodation when I am in Dubbo which at the moment is every month.

16/06/2017

We booked a family room at this motel, and we expected dated décor etc etc etc that one might think of in a motel. Wow, were we ever surprised! This motel has been extensively renovated. There is also off street parking and a pool. Our room was huge and had 4-5 star hotel fit-out, with all the latest in lighting, electricals, other appointments, new bathrooms etc. Owner/Operator Rob was there to greet us, and right from the outset, we thought this will be a lovely experience. Check-in was simple, and Rob took the time to explain the Dubbo area, good eats, where things were, etc. providing us with a map and offering to make restaurant reservations in town for us. There was Netfix (although we weren't there to watch TV) and complimentary high speed and reliable internet. Likewise, checkout was a breeze. Here's where things went beyond normal service though. I had suffered a flat tyre, and the space saver spare wheel is not designed to travel 400+ km at speed. Upon hearing of our dilemma, Rob immediately proceeded to ring every possible tyre and auto repairer in the Dubbo and surrounding area. At least a dozen calls - all to no avail due to the public holiday. Another couple overheard all this, and as 4WD enthusiasts, they actually had a car tyre puncture repair kit, compressor etc - the lot, and offered to stop and repair said tyre for us. An hour or so later all was done, but Rob came to the rescue also providing padding to kneel on whilst on the bitumen changing the tyre, supplied coffee, as well as a table and chair in the car park for comfort. First class. Many thanks Rob and our good Samaritans Bernard and Marisol.

I couldn't recommend this motel enough, The rooms have been beautifully updated and are really clean and comfortable. The couple that own and run the motel are both so lovely and go out of their way to make sure the small things are done for you. The Netflix in the rooms is an added bonus!!

A brief stay, made easier and all the more pleasant by my time at Bluegum. The service was friendly and professional, and the room tastefully decorated, clean, quiet, and well appointed. This Motel would suit business or holiday travellers wanting a little extra without the cost. Highly recommended.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Best Western Bluegum Motel. I stay in a lot of motels/hotels with work but was particularly impressed with the quality of this motel. Everything is very modern, clean and homely. I was very excited to learn I had an electric blanket which paired very well with the massive flatscreen tv with an inbuilt Netflix account (and a cup of tea). The staff were wonderfully friendly and went out of their way to make my stay great. Thank you!

"Excellant Host, Room was one of the best yet!"

The King room is very modern, clean, very well presented with good quality furnishings, affordable mini bar (was not used just check pricing), free quality WiFi (might want to turn on client isolation), Free Netflix access!, Big fairly new TV with cast support!. This is obviously on the recently renovated rooms which has been done right. The thing i would say they could add is maybe USB ports to charge phones and similar devices however this is not a negative just a suggestion to take it to the next level.

I visit Dubbo regularly for business and recently spent my first night at BW Bluegum Motel as I was looking for a change from my regular accommodation. To say the very least, this motel is fantastic! The service was very friendly and welcoming, the rooms are recently renovated and are very modern and comfortable. There were so many features that I enjoyed which go above and beyond the inclusions of many other motels in the area, such USB charging power points, free to access Netflix, fast wifi, large desk area with comfortable chair, good lighting and great hot breakfast served in the room. I highly recommend this motel.

I found this motel outstanding ,they were so obliging and friendly, the room was so clean and fresh and the bed and pillows were 1st class , the food I order was as good as I would cook myself and they delayed the desert so as not too melt which I haven`t had before . I would recommend this motel for a great stay in Dubbo and I have already recommended the motel to two friend.

I stayed for one night on a business trip and found the rooms to be excellent. The room I stayed in seemed to be recently refurbished, clean, modern and had everything needed. Internet was fast and stable. Being winter was way too cold to use the pool, but can see it would be a good spot to stay for holidays as well. The owners are very friendly and happy to help. Will happily stay here again.

Stayed at the Bluegum for 4 nights, it was lovely and clean, very modern and surprisingly very quiet for being on a major road in Dubbo. I would definitely recommend it and would stay there again. There is no restaurant but is within walking distance of many other motels that have restaurants.

I had a fantastic stay at the Best Western Bluegum Motel. The rooms are ultra modern, extremely clean and the Motel is situated in a centre part of town. I loved the 50 inch TV in my room and free access to Netflix. The staff are so friendly, informative and helpful. I will definitely back again to stay!!

09/05/2017

I have traveled to and stayed in Dubbo for many years now and have tried many of what is on offer but this is without doubt the best place to stay all rooms have been fully renovated and are very nice. Five star quality fittings and even have Netflix. forget the rest this is Dubbo's best

"This highlights why Tripadvisor is essential when travelling."

5
09/05/2017

My stay at the Bluegum highlights why websites such as Tripadvisor are essential when we travel. I have done work previously in Dubbo and stayed at Quest which was quite pleasant and well above average but this recent stay I noticed a new hotel which I had not noticed before. It wasn't a sponsored advertised hotel but rather a hotel which had genuine reviews and genuine potential. IT was not a "#1 in the best value hotel north of the river etc etc" but actually had a "#1 in Dubbo" full stop. I had not stayed at a Best Western in my entire life so had no expectations. The bluegum is quite simply one of the best regional hotels I've stayed in Australia. Typically a 4-5 star hotel relies on a brand name and achieving the absolute minimum. This can be felt in most generic hiltons/sheraton where there is a level of "competency" which the hotel must meet but they are rarely exceptional. The things that I have noticed this visit in the Bluegum are simply not thought of in most of the luxurious hotel I've stayed in. So I must therefore apologise (if you had read this far) about the lengthy review I am about to write but I feel like the entire purpose of tripadvisor is not just to review but also to show how the quality and presentation of a room can make so much difference to a routine traveller. When I arrived at the airport Amanda the owner had called and informed me that I had booked a twin room accidentally and she was changing it to a King Room. This threw me initially as it was not something I had experienced when travelling to regional hotels. My last visit at cattleman resulted in a room that was not what I paid for with no air-conditioning in the rooms and locatedn in the non-renovated part of the motel. As I was staying only for one night I did not complain. Therefore to have someone call before I arrived was very refreshing. Both Rob and Amanda were present and spent a good deal of time telling me where the closest grocery store and other restaurants were. Once again this threw me as I was not use to this in my experience of regional hotels. The rooms were exceptional and I can see that many agree with what I've said here. But it goes beyond mere presentation or the appearance of being "new". I've stayed at many "renovated" hotels which give a facade of elegance but no thought has been given to practicality What I was seeing was an immense level of thought and detail in the room. You could tell that people laboured over many aspects of the room. i. Most 5 star hotels are extremely dark. Ceiling lights are a rarity and most of them have "lampshades" which is one of the things I hate the most. Why pay such high prices for a room which barely has any light. The rooms in Bluegum have warm LED lighting which was such a refreshing difference. Most hotels make it dark so that blemishes and other faults are harder to see. Here it was the opposite. They took pride in what was in each room and they wanted you to see it. ii. Most hotels in a high bracket range will charge ridiculous amounts for mini-bar items but the items here were reasonable. They also provided fresh cutlery each day as well as a kitchenette with a microwave next to the fridge. iii. Internet was free. This is a real reflection of 5 star hotels that simply do not understand the modern traveller. 5 star hotels provide wifi at a cost or "free" wifi which is shaped and almost unusable which for most people is overly frustrating. Bluegum had Foxtel and Netflix on offer and they provided wireless internet at no cost at ADSL+ speeds. Once again I have not stayed at a 4/5 star hotel which provided internet in this fashion. (I've included the speeds below. Although the speed varied it essentially remained over 10Mbps in my entire stay. This is both Up and Down and made syncing my work so much quicker) iv. The Fridge in the room was large. The mini bar drinks were in there but there was plenty of room in the fridge for your own drinks or food. Most hotels have a bar-fridge that is the size of a backpack and hold you to ransom in terms of having your own cold drinks in your room. v. The Television was large and modern. Most hotels neglect this and usually have televisions which are out-dated and well beyond their use by dates. And foxtel/Netflix at no cost made the whole 3 days stay much more pleasant. The only mild complaint I had was that it was not possible to access a spare HDMI port on the television which meant I could not use the television as a monitor for the laptop or for other peripherals. vi. My biggest frustration with large brand luxury hotels is the lack of available and accessible power sockets. I have lost count the number of times I've had to unplug the bedside light to free up a socket or kneeling on the ground to find obscure sockets under the bed so that I can charge my computer and my phone. Once again bluegum thought about this and there are multiple powerpoints in the room in accessible locations. The sockets are all clipsal in the room which means that the entire hotel likely has a c-bus system in place which is even more impressive So by this point in my review you know I am impressed.... But what is even more important is that hotels like this create a benchmark by which every regional hotel can adopt. People are willing to pay a premium if the product is worth it. There will always be people who stay at locations based on best price but I can promise you an equally high number of customers will pay the extra premium when the product is exceptional. Keep up the great work

"Sets the standard for regional motels"

5
30/04/2017

Let's get the negative out of the way first. My room was near the front of the hotel which resulted in a degree of noise from trucks at night as the motel is on a Highway. My room was one of the refurbished rooms and are the best I have stayed in, definitely in Dubbo and probably in all of regional NSW. The fit out would not be out of place in Sydney for a 4-star hotel. They are roomy, comfortable and well set out. Lighting is excellent and they have a good space for working, making it ideal for people travelling on business. The bed is of good quality (although I personally like firmer pillows) and the led lighting above the headboard is a good touch. One thing I would have done differently is included USB chargers in the switches next to the bed, something to consider when/if the unrenovated rooms are done up. The 50" Samsung TVs are a good addition. A selection of good Foxtel channels in nice, but the inclusion of Netflix is totally unexpected. The hard wired internet connection to every TV ensures buffer free viewing. The high speed wifi if the best I have experienced (the owner tells me they have 3 nbn connections coming in to the motel to ensure it truely is high speed). It is not only fast, but free and unlimited. All the staff I encountered were happy and friendly. They genuinely seem to enjoy their jobs. Great bakery across the road if you want breakfast or lunch (other than room service). The owners of this motel have done a great job and deserve every success that comes to them. This is genuinely the standard I will be judging all regional hotels by from now on -the benchmark has been set very high.

Rob Z, Owner at Best Western Bluegum Motel, responded to this review
Thank you Glen for your huge compliment and lovely feedback on our accommodation, hospitality and in-room facilities. Rob and I have worked tirelessly to renovate our guest rooms to a really high standard. We completely gutted each room and have rebuilt them from the ground up including new wiring etc. Funny you should mention the USB ports -- all of our Executive rooms located toward the back of the property have USB ports at the bedsides as well as a few other little extra luxuries. Rob was delighted to read that our high-speed WiFi was the best you've experienced and that the Netflix worked well. We look forward to welcoming you back next time you travel to Dubbo. Thanks again for taking the time to let us know how much you enjoyed your stay. Best wishes, Manda & Rob (Proud Small Business Owners)

"New rooms are fabulous!"

29/04/2017

I stayed at this motel before the renovations and was blown away when I walked into our room this week. The outside looks very plain but don't let that put you off staying here! I had a family room which was very spacious and everything is brand new. Nice grey and white decor and very quiet despite being on the corner of a busy main road. I found the bed a little firm for my liking but still had a great sleep. Kitchenette was a good size with a microwave and having Netflix and Wifi was great for the kids. Clean, modern and friendly reception - I would highly recommend staying here.

Rob Z, Owner at Best Western Bluegum Motel, responded to this review
It is always a pleasure to welcome back returning guests! We're delighted you loved our newly renovated family rooms, and that the kids had fun using the Wi-Fi and Netflix. We've got plans to give our reception and front facade a little face-lift toward the end of the year so it better reflects how lovely our guest rooms are now. Slowly but sure ;-) Thank you for your lovely feedback. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Best wishes, Manda & Rob (Proud Small Business Owners)

Looks like an average motel from the outside however the room I stayed in had been recently renovated and are very modern on the inside. The staff are lovely and the TV also had netflix which was a bonus. The only downside was very thin walls I could hear the people next door talking and watching tv which kept me up late.

Rob Z, Owner at Best Western Bluegum Motel, responded to this review
Thank you for your lovely feedback on our accommodation and hospitality. We're delighted to read that you were pleasantly surprised by the quality of our rooms and facilities. Sorry to hear that you had noisy neighbours; it has been a very busy school holidays. Our motel has double brick walls that we double lined with gyprock during renovation so noise reduction measures have been taken. We haven't blocked volume levels on guest room TV's as we hope guests are courteous but perhaps we need to investigate. Many thanks, Manda & Rob (Proud Small Business Owners)

The room was clean and comfortable. Decision to go with trusted brand was justified, as we made the mistake on a previous family trip by going to an unkown small operator (not discouraging going to boutiques, just ensure that they have good reviews I guess). Yes, family-friendly, good location.

I am a travel agent and travel regularly and have to say that I tend to be a bit spoilt and a bit of a hotel snob! I was more than pleasantly surprised when we checked into our room as I was expecting something of a regional 3 star type accommodation. The rooms are immaculate, modern, stylish, spacious and extremely clean. Everything is brand new and looks like it has never been used. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the hotel is in a great handy location to the main city centre and the zoo. It is clean & bright and the beds and pillows all very comfy and the sheets felt extremely crisp and clean. Great place to stay.

Rob Z, Owner at BEST WESTERN Bluegum Motel, responded to this review
Wow, Kaz, thank you for your amazing feedback. We couldn't be happier to know that our accommodation and hospitality exceeded your expectations. Once upon a time, we did have a typical 3-3.5 star regional motel, but over the past 3 years we have transformed our property into something really special. We've still got a couple of projects on the go but we're getting there slowly but surely. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with other TA travellers. Your feedback means a lot to Rob and I. Happy travels til next time. Best wishes, Manda & Rob (Proud Small Business Owners)

We booked two rooms for two nights here over the Easter week-end for our family. Both rooms were exceptional. Clearly the owners have spent a lot of time in upgrading the rooms and the decor and cleanliness could easily match up to many 4star hotel rooms let alone a motel. The team running the motel were really friendly and helpful, they had good knowledge of the local area and nothing was too much trouble. The Wifi and netflix was great too, after a long day exploring. Will be back!

"The Hilton of Dubbo "

18/04/2017

Okay so its not really like the hilton but boy was the room excellent. I have worked and stayed in alot of 5 star hotels around the world and the executive king room is 100% on par with a 5 star hotel. Being a motel not a hotel, you are paying for the room rather than facilities, although there is a pool. The room was incredible, as i said I've worked in hotels so i do tend to nitpick when i stay places, But there was nothing i could fault. The room was extremely clean, modern and had everything you need. There was even netflix and stan linked to the room which was a nice suprise! The staff were fantastic, i believe the gentlemans name was Robert. Not only was he friendly and professional, he was very helpful to point out good places to eat and visit. For the price i payed i felt i was underpaying for such a quality room. I Highly recommend staying here!

Rob Z, Owner at BEST WESTERN Bluegum Motel, responded to this review
What an amazing review and a HUGE compliment from someone who has worked and stayed in a lot of 5 star hotels around the world. Feedback like yours makes the whole Bluegum team very proud.

This is our second stay at the Bluegum and we highly recommend it. Our room was recently renovated and the fixtures, bathroom, etc were very high quality (we thought it was beautiful 18 months ago). The service is very helpful, we always ring direct when booking. The rooms were cleaned first thing in the morning and spotless. There is a mini bar if you need but the location is great. A bakery is opposite, a nice Italian restaurant a short walk away and also take-away if you want. There is a pool for the kids, Netflix etc. We would never consider staying anywhere else in Dubbo.

10/04/2017

I'm from Sydney and this is my third visit to the Best Western Bluegum motel for work. The first visit I was really impressed and this was prior to the renovation. The second visit I was happy with the service & impressed with the renovations. The third time I was super impressed as they saved my Coke Zero cans that I forgot on the second visit and put them in the fridge for me, seriously? You would NEVER get that kind of thoughtfulness in Sydney. I'll go through the Pro's & Con's as usual; PRO: - great central location, you could walk into town easily. - beautifully renovated modern clean rooms. - lovely friendly hosts, who remembered my name 2 months later. - comfy beds with quality linen and pillows. - thoughtfully placed power outlets, lots near the side of the bed for all the media stuff. - modern TV with access to Netflix etc. - renovated bathroom with quality toiletries. - good (and reasonably priced) mini bar selection. CON: - zero I would recommend this motel to anyone visiting Dubbo, business or pleasure!

We needed a last minute hotel as we were driving through Dubbo. We called the blue gum and the service was exceptional, we were able to book a room instantly, get free parking and advice on local restaurants for a late meal. When we arrived the manager was lovely and we got a map of the restaurants to go to, some ice for our drinks that we had brought along and some fresh milk for our tea and coffee in the morning. When we got to our room we actually thought we were in a 5 star hotel in the city it was impeccably clean the bed was very comfortable and the tv had netflix. We ended up ordering takeaway and got very tasty pizzas from Ginas pizzeria delivered. The interior design of the room was beautiful and quite roomy for an overnight stay. If we are going through Dubbo again we won't hesitate staying at the blue gum motel.

A one night stay in an upstairs executive room, which was well-appointed and recently refurbished. Super clean bed-linen and towels. Comfortable bed and bedding- gave us a good nights sleep. Plenty of tea and coffee in room. Good clean bathroom. Nice to have room with a window to let in fresh air rather than sleeping with aircon on. A well appointed kitchenette. Coffee plunger plus coffee. Some traffic noise. Pool on site. Large TV. Comfortable seating. Professional, friendly office staff.

I have been back here three times now and I wouldn't go any where else, the rooms are 5 star, you walk into your room the air conditioner is on and nice jazz music playing.. Robert and Amanda are extremely accomodating, three trips in and they address me by my name which is lovely, and nothing is ever a problem. The restaurant food is fantastic with room service which exactly what you need after a busy day on the road... Coming here on business makes it feel like a nice relaxing get away... I love it, I look forward to my monthly visit and wouldn't go any where else.

I can't fault this place. The owners are super friendly and helpful. The room is modern and clean and mine had a microwave, toaster, sink etc. The owners have gone to a lot of trouble to add special touches for your stay including Netflix etc. I had several room service meals and they were all great - you can order your meals online which is really convenient. The rooms are really quiet with great blockout blinds and comfy beds. Will return in 2017 to my favourite Dubbo accom.

This motel never fails to please, very friendly mangers, nothing is a problem. Rooms are spacious and very clean. Does not matter wether it is summer or winter the air conditioning is always turned on the make your room comfortable from the minute you open the door. After travelling 5 hours very refreshing to have cold water and fresh apples available on check in (it's the small things that make a difference). Motel has a beautiful fresh bakery across the road, great if you have children or need extra food or milk etc. Also has a lovely park across the road. Plenty of parking for more than one car if needed. My motel of choice in Dubbo.

"Excellent refurbished unit"

18/11/2016

There seems to be a craze for refurbishment among BW properties - this is the third one on our present trip that's undergoing a facelift. It's worked well, too; the room offered adequate space, the beds were comfortable, and the shower had a superb head to it (I appreciate a shower whose jet envelops the whole body). There's no restaurant, but meals come to the room (and ,judging by the delivery time, they may well be cooked to order, though I didn't check that explicitly). Hosts are welcoming and concerned for the visitor's comfort and convenience, and the final touch was a bottle of water "for the driver" as we checked out. Thank you, Rob and Amanda.

Rob Z, Owner at BEST WESTERN Bluegum Motel, responded to this review
Thank you for your excellent marks on our accommodation and hospitality. I can see from your other TA reviews that you are well travelled, and a valued Best Western guest. Its great to hear that so many Best Western properties are renovating. It may surprise many people to know that we are all privately owned (and therefore fund our own renovations) but have chosen to be Best Western branded properties due their extremely high standards, quality assurance and professionalism. We're delighted you enjoyed your stay -- we really appreciate your patronage. Happy travels til next time! Best wishes, Manda & Rob (Proud Small Business Owners)

Thank you for letting us know what you loved most about our newly renovated rooms -- we've tried to incorporate what we've learned and loved about other top accommodation spots. Thank you also for letting other travellers know that our current renovations at the front of the motel did not disturb your stay at the back.

Spent a night here for work. warm, friendly welcome with lots of great tips for places to eat for dinner and breakfast. Great room, recently renovated (whole complex is going through a major renovation, but no disruption or noise) room with great amenities. Great location, close to all services and within walking distance of downtown. Highly recommend it for the business traveller or even if staying for recreation.

Rob Z, Owner at BEST WESTERN Bluegum Motel, responded to this review
Thank you for highly recommending the BW Bluegum for business or leisure travellers. We've designed our newly renovated rooms to include all the latest in-room technology and conveniences specifically for our corporate travellers. As you mentioned, we're undertaking a major, self-funded renovation of the entire property. All guest rooms at the rear of the property are complete (4* Premier, Executive & Superior rooms) and we're currently renovating all rooms at the front of the property. We're delighted that you thought there was absolutely no noise disruption -- especially since you stayed during the nosiest time (demolition week). Many thanks for taking the time to let other travellers know how much you enjoyed your stay. We hope to welcome you back again soon. Best wishes, Manda and Rob Zatta (Proud Small Business Owners)

"A delightful stay in Dubbo overnight"

28/10/2016

We called last minute for a room to stay in Dubbo overnight to catch an early flight out and were pleased to find they could accommodate us in one of the newly renovated queen rooms. We arrived and the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable, the front office and general appearance of the motel was really clean and nicely appointed. We got up to the room which had some relaxing music already playing on the TV, a little kitchen sink (a rare find in a motel, so nice to not have to wash a cup in the bathroom!!) fully equipped with a fridge, kettle and toaster and the usual suspects of coffee biscuits etc however there was a coffee plunger and bag provided as well which was exactly what we needed the next morning at 4am! The bathroom was spacious with giant shower head and push button lights was a nice touch as were the toiletries including shower cap with hair tie, shampoo, soap, hand lotion etc very nice! The usb power outlets were very helpful for charging up the tech. Overall our new favourite place to stay in Dubbo, can't wait to return and try out the beautiful pool!

Stayed here as usual hotel booked. Was moved to a New room but Hotel but was then charged the higher price! Maybe if they offere to move people they should keep the price the same. No Resturant thankfully walking distance to a good one. Room is refurbished so very nice but walls paper thin...didnt appreciate the snorer in the next roo or the traffic noise at night.

Rob Z, Owner at BEST WESTERN Bluegum Motel, responded to this review
On the contrary Jo -- you booked an unrenovated, Standard double queen room through Expedia. Rob noticed the booking was for a single so he called you to confirm the number of guests. When you indicated it was just for yourself (travelling for business), he promptly upgraded you to a brand new, renovated Superior queen room at NO EXTRA CHARGE. In fact, if you had of booked this option at the time it would have been $30 more. We're glad you found a great Thai restaurant within walking distance -- we don't have a restaurant but we do provide room service for both Breakfast and dinner, and offer lots of gluten free dinner options. As always, we put guest comfort first and foremost. We're just disappointed you didn't appreciate or recognise this. In case, we hope you enjoyed your stay and we hope to welcome you back on another occasion. Best wishes, Manda & Rob (Proud Small Business Owners)

I recently visited Dubbo with work and was accommodated at the Best Western Bluegum Motel. The owner Rob is a friendly and professional host, who moved me into one of the four star rooms on the ground floor. The four star room was brand new and very well appointed. The highlight was an extremely comfortable bed that provided two nights of excellent sleep. The room service breakfast was one of the best I've had, with all ingredients freshly cooked and tasted great. I highly recommend the Best Western Bluegum Motel and will happily return.

Cannot fault anything about Best Western Bluegum except that we got lost locating the motel due to GPS misdirection. Stayed 2 nights in a superior queen twin room with my husband and teen daughter. It was newly renovated so all the amenities were new. The microwave oven, fridge and sink were really handy for our use. If I had known there was a toaster included, I might have not have left out bread from my list. The beds were super comfortable and we slept well without any noise on both evenings. The hotel hosts were friendly and helpful. Well done best western bluegum, keep up the good work.

It did have new beds & nice white sheets/doonas. Large TV & new drapes. But every thing else was so very old. Overall clean. Entry was broken old floor tiles & stiff old door knob, difficult to use. Room was like a big dark cave, with caramel walls, awful old décor & horribly old grotty lounge Bathroom is like a lean to at g grandmas with slopping low roof , (no tall fellows in this room. ) with old crazed tiles & all fixtures old unmatched.

Rob Z, Owner at BEST WESTERN Bluegum Motel, responded to this review
Firstly, thanks so much for your review. Sorry you were disappointed with your choice of room. We are precise with our descriptions and photographs. In fact the photos used are of the exact same room you stayed in and show the exposed brick. As we state across all booking sites, we have a mix of 4* fully renovated rooms (like a city hotel room) and great value for money, 3.5* rooms with original bathroom and cabinetry but with big ticket items replaced (i.e. beds, bedding, Smart TV's, split system air, fridge, microwaves etc). As such, we offer something for every taste and budget so we can only assume you choose a 3.5* room based on cost. The disappointing part is that you didn't come and see us during your 2 day stay to discuss or enquire about our other room options. We genuinely strive to give every guest the best accommodation experience and make every attempt to touch base with guests during their stay. Nonetheless, thank you for staying and we do hope to see you again. Best wishes, Manda & Rob (Proud Small Business Owners)

I stayed in the family room with 4 14 year old boys - in Dubbo for a football game. The room was perfect, very comfortable and well appointed after being recently renovated...and the TV had Netflix, Presto etc etc. These was a quiet fridge, and small kitchenette (only area of improvement would be to have bowls, spoons, plates etc in the room, rather than having to ask for them...which they were happy to provide).The owners were great and very accommodating. Would definitely stay there again.

This was a really great Motel and I thoroughly enjoyed the 2 nights we were there. In a great position and very moderately priced, the owners could not do enough to make our stay comfortable. A very friendly Motel.

"Very good "

11/09/2016

Recently stayed here for a couple of nights in one of the renovated rooms and it was above expectations . Hotel is quiet and in a good location and there's a well stocked mini bar without the ridiculous prices. There's high speed wifi and Netflix on the large wall mounted TV. I highly recommend for anyone wanting comfortable accom in Dubbo. The service from the counter was great and very helpful. I will stay here again.

Booked online during the day, upgraded my room to a Queen size while at reception. Room had just be renovated, it was large and comfortable. Parking was easy and the hosts were very warm and welcoming.

"One of my favourite places to stay when in Dubbo!"

09/09/2016

I've stayed here twice now and am hoping to return more times. The people are so friendly and it's the little things that make this stay a pleasure every time. They are in the process of renovating, and both times I've had a very comfortable and luxurious stay. The motel is on the main road, but facing a quieter side road and I have managed to sleep well on both occasions. Very happy to recommend them for any type of overnight or longer stay visits.

"Great Motel!"

04/09/2016

Our room was huge! Very clean, well appointed and very comfortable. The bathroom was large enough for aged walker access and also well appointed. Rob and Manda went out of their way to help us and as my elderly mother was very unwell this was really appreciated. The little touches, free bottled water, free fruit on offer and Rob checking the road conditions for our forward trip were all "above and beyond". We will definitely recommend the Bluegum to our family and friends! Thank you both for everything!!

"Good Quality Motel"

03/09/2016

We were warmly greeted by staff & our room lived up to all expectations after reading lots of positive reviews. Everything was of a high standard, lovely decor , comfy bed & full size lounge to sit & watch some tv. Highly recommend & will stay here again.

Great motel and excellent service, beautiful newly renovated rooms and great personal touches, nothing was ever too much trouble, no wonder you are number 1 on trip advisor, great stay, comfortable beds and very clean modern rooms, thank you

Would definitely stay again. Staff very friendly, updated ammenities plenty of space and a playground across the road. All of the facilities you need with a young family. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

"Newly renovated - really well done"

29/08/2016

They've done a great job with the renovations, it's probably the best motel style accommodation we've stayed in. There wasn't any noise from the main road or from any of the rooms next door. No complaints at all.

"Stylish updated room"

26/08/2016

Spent just one night at the Bluegum in an beautiful, updated, stylish room - loved the light switches. Lovely bathroom, comfortable bed and a good breakfast. Owners very friendly and would recommend this motel for couples.

"Great Motel with great service"

5
25/08/2016

My husband and I spent two nights at this motel. It was very clean and the bedding was clean, modern and very comfortable. The owner went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable, he brought us a microwave and necessary kitchen items. When we checked out he gave us each a bottle of water to take on our way, which was an added service that you usually don't get. I would certainly recommend staying at this motel as they really do try to give you that added service.

"great hotel in central Dubbo"

21/08/2016

Good facilities and spacious clean rooms. I have stayed before and would again - it was first choice after such a nice welcome last time. Beds are comfortable. Bathroom is pristine. Tea and coffee facilities (with plunger coffee)

"clean tidy well kept"

21/08/2016

nice motel, good staff. Stayed in a recently renovated room which wasnt the cheapest in Dubbo but was well presented large and clean in house breakfast was simple well priced which is unusual for most motels only drawback is no restaurant, bakery across the road is good for coffee and the like but dinner requires travelling you do get some traffic noise but no worse than the other motels on the same highway

"Excellent room and very central"

5
21/08/2016

Lovely motel, beautifully renovated and a great brekky in the comfort of our room., no 24. Very well appointed and a huge TV. Minibar is well equipped and the fresh milk is a bonus. We will certainly be back again. The bakery across the road is great as well.

"Superb Dubbo Stay"

19/08/2016

We stayed in one of the recently renovated 4* rooms. From the moment we opened the door it was absolutely first class. Plenty of room, extremely comfortable king bed and arm chairs to watch tv on the huge screen. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean and the warm welcome from Robert was excellent. Would highly recommend this establishment. Will be back.

"Home Away from Home"

18/08/2016

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Our hosts were extremely helpful and friendly and the rooms were clean and spacious. The beds and pillows were very comfortable and we were a 10 minute walk from the town centre.

"first class service"

5
16/08/2016

From the moment we checked in to the easy checkout the following day we were treated like valued guests. Having already booked, the check in did not take long. The room was very clean and tidy so we had no issues there. We were given a choice of two nearby restaurants when we explained what we wanted for our tea for that night. In the reception is a bowl of apples for guests. This is just a small gesture but an important one. It shows that the owners think about the little things. Similarly when we checked out we were given a bottle of water each for our journey. I cannot remember this happening at a motel before. Again, it was a small but important gesture. If we find ourselves in Dubbo again this would be our first choice of motels.

Rob Z, Owner at BEST WESTERN Bluegum Motel, responded to this review
Your amazing feedback means a great deal to both Rob and I, especially given how well travelled you are. We firmly believe its the little things that make a good stay, GREAT. Fresh fruit at reception and a bottle of chilled water at checkout make a long drive to or from Dubbo enjoyable. Thank you for letting us know how much you appreciated our accommodation and hospitality. We look forward to welcoming you back next time you travel out west. Best wishes, Manda & Rob (Proud small business owners)

LOVE IT :-) Thank you for your excellent review and for giving me a laugh on a busy Tuesday morning. It was terrific to have you stay with us for the Vintage Truck and Tractor show.

14/08/2016

Rob and Manda were warm, welcoming and very helpful with local recommendations. The motel is close to everything. The motel is comfortable and reasonably priced. Short Street store (3 min from motel) is a perfect place for brekky, highly recommended!

Rob Z, Owner at BEST WESTERN Bluegum Motel, responded to this review
It was our pleasure to share with you all the things we love about Dubbo. It's such an amazing town and has so much to offer. We're delighted that you found our lovely 3.5* queen rooms quiet, clean and comfortable. They are great value for money. Thank you again for choosing to stay with us for your Dubbo adventure.

Nice and comfortable room, very friendly and helpful service. Called in the morning to see if we could check in earlier, but rooms are still being cleaned so couldn't go. However, 1 hour later, Rob sent an sms personally to notify us that the rooms are ready! Very happy with how they handle customer's interactions!

Thank you for your terrific feedback about our customer service and comfortable rooms. It was no trouble at all to send a SMS to let you know when the rooms were ready.

"Awesome stay - once again."

5
07/08/2016

Rob and Manda just "get it". My wife and I stopped in Dubbo enroute home to Broken Hill and once again stayed at Bluegum. This was probably our 10th stay and once again was not disappointed. It is by far the best hotel here in a sea of underwhelming properties along this strip. Rob and Manda are always so professional yet so welcoming and friendly - my ideal form of true "country" service. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to one of their renovated rooms (all rooms however are great) upon check in and as always were not disappointed. The beds are comfy, the layouts work, the heating is great, the new TV is perfect and the room was literally one of the cleanest hotel rooms I have ever set foot in. We have stayed at countless hotels around the world from backpacker hostels in India to 6 star resorts in Mauritius (and everything in between) and the Bluegum in good old Dubbo takes the crown for cleanliness. This attention to detail flows through every aspect of the property. Thanks again guys for always making us feel so welcome - keep up the great work. We look forward to our next stay. Cheers. Andrew & Sarah D

"Clean,Cozy and comfortable."

I was slightly apprehensive booking accommodation in Dubbo after a few less than impressive experiences. Bluegum made me feel welcome from the minute I made my booking right up until I checked out. My room was large and clean and the bed was very comfortable. I will be back next time I'm in Dubbo and look forward to the completion of the renovations.

"Comfortable but noise is an issue ..."

4
03/08/2016

We had read the very positive reviews of the hotel and booked it accordingly. The venue is well placed and priced correctly . Our room was very comfortable and we were made to feel very welcome by the relieving managers. They also provided us with some great advice re dinner options. Regrettably I cannot give 5 stars and our issue is not with the hotel but other guests who obviously had an early start and at 5.00am made an outrageous amount of noise in getting up, packing their car, chatting animatedly and loudly as well as slamming every door several times. I know you cannot account for people an the their poor behavior but way the noise travelled suggests that there is nothing in the way of sound proofing in the building. If you are a light sleeper, then this is probably not a place for you.

"Almost perfect!"

02/08/2016

I really enjoyed my stay here. I got room 7. Newly renovated and very tastefully too I might add. The only thing letting it down was the old bedspread! Nice powerful air con to keep you warm during winter! Nice study desk for working. Awesome USB power ports built into the electrical outlets next to your bed! How convenient! Modern push button switches for lights. Free bottle of water on departure! How thoughtful! I'm definitely staying here in future! You should too!

Rob Z, Owner at BEST WESTERN Bluegum Motel, responded to this review
Thanks so much for your great comments. I think you were lucky enough to book our last room available on Monday night -- one of our new family rooms. For practical reasons we have custom fitted bed covers in our large family rooms but in all other room types we use triple sheeting (like city hotels). We're so pleased everything was to your liking. As you noticed, we're going the extra mile in our newly renovated 4 * rooms with fittings, fixtures and facilities. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Best wishes, Manda & Rob (Proud small business owners)

02/08/2016

We stayed for two nights and were more than happy with the experience. Our room was on the ground floor and provided us with everything we needed for our stay. The room was quiet, the queen size bed was comfortable with white sheets and good pillows, the room was of a generous size, tea and coffee making facilities were provided as were toiletries in the bathroom. Everything was spotless. The owners of this motel are warm and friendly people who work hard to make a visit to their motel an enjoyable experience, and ours was!! Thank you.

Not only was the superior King room amazingly clean and absolutely beautiful, it was the little touches like having the heater on for you when you arrived and music playing. The owners were so helpful and wonderful. Wouldn't stay anywhere else.

29/07/2016

This hotel is a wonderful testament to the management... They are friendly, warm and very helpful. The rooms have been recently renovated and are very comfortable, stylish better than a lot of 5*hotels I have stayed at in Sydney. Do not stay anywhere else when you are in Dubbo. Bed is extremely comfortable. We have no negatives regarding this hotel.

Thank you for your amazing feedback Venessa. We're absolutely delighted you enjoyed our newly renovated 4* Premier king room and hospitality.

Great motel, great service from management even helped with ice on car the next morning (3 degrees or less) . They had complimentary fruit and water ! Free wifi, big flat screen tv , Foxtel , microwave , fridge plus huge room slept 4 plus dining area . Bathroom was huge too ! Great heating! if I had to be picky bathroom was a bit cold because of the gap/air vents in the bathroom window . But seriously great place !

Rob Z, Owner at BEST WESTERN Bluegum Motel, responded to this review
Rob and I are over the moon that you loved our 3.5* family rooms. With all the upgrades you mentioned, these rooms are great value for money. We will pass on your appreciation to our relief managers who helped with the ice on your car on that chilly July morning. Its been very fresh in the mornings in Dubbo but it certainly doesn't last long ;-) Thank you again for choosing to stay with us at the BW Bluegum. We hope to meet you ourselves next time you travel out west. Best wishes, Manda & Rob (Proud small business owners)

"Excellent for pricing"

28/07/2016

1st time I've stayed here and couldn't fault it. Spacious room , comfy bed and very friendly staff. Have some restaurants nearby that you can bill back , simple meals served for dinner at very reasonable price. Going through renovations to upgrade rooms so there are limited occupancies - which also means more space in the car park.

Rob Z, Owner at BEST WESTERN Bluegum Motel, responded to this review
Thank you for your excellent review Grant. Rob and I are delighted that you enjoyed your 2 night stay while in Dubbo for business. Our 3.5* Queen rooms are great value for money with lots of unexpected extras. As you mentioned, we're renovating the entire motel (in stages) from the ground up to offer 4* rooms, often described like a city hotel, if not better. We have a further four rooms under construction at present. Thanks again for choosing to stay with us at the BW Bluegum. We really appreciate your feedback on our accommodation and service.

"Clean and tidy"

28/07/2016

I stayed here recently in a family room. The room was clean and tidy even though the bathroom and light fittings etc were a bit old fashioned and out of date. Beds were comfortable and room was quiet. The staff member who was there was not very friendly, but wasn't rude. Just seemed bored. If you are looking for clean, basic accommodation then this place is fine.

"Great place to stay"

24/07/2016

My wife and I stayed overnight and had a very friendly reception. The room was very comfortable with all we needed. We were even fortunate to receive a free breakfast thanks to the manager :-) The motel in nicely located and although on a busy road one side, the rooms are sited on the quiet street side. Highly recommend this motel.

"Great place for family to stay. Management very friendly"

24/07/2016

Upon arriving, Management were very friendly & helpful. Our room was spacious & great for a family of 4. Easy location to Dubbo Goal, Taronga Zoo, (if needed) & eateries. Great park across the road for the kids to play in.

"Nice. But not what I expected."

4
20/07/2016

Let me just open by saying that the staff and very friendly and rooms modern and incredibly clean. I have never stayed in a motel, I have always travelled for business in hotels. So this may be the same everywhere, but I must admit I was expecting a few more things in the room for cooking. It's quite expensive to eat out every day. So I like to go to the shops at the beginning of each week. I paid extra for a microwave so I assumed I would have some cooking utensils or bowls or anything. But all I had was 2 butter knives. If you were last to come home at night you were very lucky to get a park. The parking bays are so narrow that some inconsiderate people just parked across two. If you are looking for a couple of night stay and you are happy with a motel, I think you'll be very happy with this motel, bar the couple of irritations mentioned above.

"Great motel"

18/07/2016

We had a great stay at this motel. Beds were comfortable, room was very modern and there was a mini bar. Couldn't hear any noise from the highway and had a great nights sleep. Will be staying here again next time we are in Dubbo

"Country hospitality"

17/07/2016

This motel offered extremely comfortable accommodation. There was every amenity we could require after a long day's drive. Due to cold wet weather we chose to dine in our room and the meal served was so nice and professionally served. Having never before eaten in a motel room, this was a pleasant experience.

"Best Accommodation"

14/07/2016

Having just completed a big family driving trip to the snow and staying in Sydney and Canberra, this was the best Motel. We stayed in one of the new refurbished rooms, the room is large and I loved the kitchenette and the free Netflix. The only drawback was that laundry facilities were listed on the website but you weren't actually able to do your own laundry and it was $25.00 per load. The relief management were wonderful and helped out with all queries.

13/07/2016

Stayed two nights for work and found the hotel clean and comfortable. Close to shops and the Centre of town. Large well appointed room with a comfy bed. Only thing I can suggest be improved is there is no heating in the bathroom. Outside temp was 4 degrees and the bathroom was too cold to be comfortable.

"Nice and easy stay"

09/07/2016

We stayed in the older family room and it was perfect for what we needed. We spent most of our time at the zoo so just needed somewhere to sleep. Clean, tidy, warm and comfortable. Close to town and not too noisy. All the usual trimmings kettle, toaster, microwave and mini fridge. Nice towels!

"Pleasant stay "

03/07/2016

My daughter and I stayed for the weekend. This is our second stay. Rooms are clean and well presented. Check in is easy and quick and Rob is more than helpful. The area is quiet even though on a main road. The bathroom is a little outdated but very clean, I think they are in the middle of updating. We would definitely stay again.

"Just Perfect !"

03/07/2016

Rob was a genuine bloke, and real good host, from email communication to time of arrival , made you feel at home, this was a perfect spot to stay !!! Will definitely be there on my next visit . Room was clean and tidy, and had everything from fridge with drinks and milk that you get from the reception. Smart TV to keep the adults and kids entertained :) Wish I could take this hospitality all around Australia with me. This is what service is all about, keep it up !

"Very comfortable with a fine attention to detail."

01/07/2016

We were given a warm welcome on arrival. The owners were helpful and full of good advice. The rooms are large, large tv, beautifully decked out and what is not in your room you can generally ask for. Very comfortable bed, air conditioning quiet and great lounging area. This is a little mor expensive but worth it. Here you are close to great eating places and not far from he zoo and Gail. Both of these absolutely worth a visit.

"Great family zoo stop over"

30/06/2016

Hi We had a fabulous 2 night stop over whilst visiting the Zoo and Gaol. Very efficient, helpful and friendly service. The room was spotless with great heating. We had in room dining on the first night as the kids were too tired to go out. Meals were delicious and kids loved the sausages mash and veggies. Thank you.

"Wonderful every time"

27/06/2016

Beautiful rooms with everything you could need. Hosts Rob & Manda are just fantastic and can never do enough for their guests. Arriving late on a cold night to the heater on is just one of the little things that makes this place a stand out. We are always more than happy staying at the Blue Gum.

"Perfect Again!"

26/06/2016

I just keep coming back because Rob and Manda are always so welcoming and friendly. The rooms are first rate and the best in the Central West for business with a great work space, lots of power points, free wifi, usb power points to get all of your devices charging and comfortable chair and surrounds. Most importantly though, the rooms are modern and fresh, always immaculate, super comfortable beds and good quality showers.

Overwhelmed by hospitality, room quality and attention to detail. Cold night, but heater was already on in the room! Good advice about local eateries. Provide room service if you don't want to go out. Highly recommended. We would certainly go back!

"Brand new rooms are amazing. "

25/06/2016

Stayed in the newly renovated rooms which had everything you need. A great family room with modern amenities, beds and TV system. A Microwave, fridge and sink help with a quick meal if you need. There is even a toaster. Excellent service and value for money. Very comfortable for a family.

23/06/2016

Would highly recommend. From the moment we booked the owners were extremely lovely and welcoming! Room was clean tidy and very comfortable. The risotto we ordered from room service was the best we have ever had delicious!! Its very clear the owners pride themselves on the extra little things that make a stay memorable. Thank you :-)

"Best in Dubbo"

22/06/2016

Stayed here recently with family including grandchildren. The lovely owners couldn't have been welcoming and were so helpful with directions and pointing out good places to eat for families. The rooms were large, clean and quiet with the usual tea/coffee and toiletries provided. The hotel is not in the town centre but is close enough to walk or is only a couple of mins drive. There is also a bakery across the road. Board games can be borrowed from reception for the young ones who might need entertaining when indoors. There is no restaurant onsite however, there is a short menu for room service. There is free access to Internet though we found it quite slow. This is a great hotel and the owners/managers go out of their way to ensure your comfort. We'll definitely stay here again.

Half of the rooms have been upgraded. The rest are in the process. They are very modern and well above the average country motel. Service was fast and despite being on the highway i heard little noise. Couldn't ask for better. I will be back.

Rob Z, Owner at BEST WESTERN Bluegum Motel, responded to this review
We are absolutely delighted that you had an excellent stay and that everything was to your liking. As you mentioned, we are half way through our extensive motel renovations. At the present we offer both 3.5* standard rooms (with lots of upgrades) and 4* fully renovated Premier/Executive/Superior rooms (like a city hotel). The remaining guest rooms/reception area /guest facilities are scheduled for completion by the end of 2017. The hard work and end results are being well received by our guests. Thanks again for your support. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Best wishes, Manda and Rob (Proud small business owners)

"Blueprint for any regional motel looking for a #1 rating"

21/06/2016

WOW just WOW, do I need to write more? OK so trip advisor ask me to write 200 characters so I have to. We arrived with the incorrect booking done through a travel agent and needed to change the details, there were 2 other people at check in and the team behind the counter handled it extremely well. Even though they handled this situation well they felt it necessary to apologise at a later stage and make sure that I was comfortable and understood the technology in my room. Great service on it's own but I still got a little bottle of milk for my coffee like I would in any other regional motel, 5 star city service with a country hospitality feel. If you run a regional motel and are wondering where your customers are do yourself a favour and come and spend a night at this hotel. Keep it up guys, I loved it!

15/06/2016

We stayed in one of the premium rooms with our 5 year old - very clean, fresh & comfortable. Facade of motel is quite old fashioned so pleasantly surprised how modern the interior was. Great shower pressure, and super comfortable beds for all 3 of us. Hosts were very welcoming with great recommendations for dinner. Continental brekky was generous. Not surprised Blue Gum is No 1 rated on TripAdvisor. Would definitely stay here again when visiting Dubbo.

"One night stay in Dubbo"

11/06/2016

I needed a nice and simple place to stay for one night while in Dubbo for a mates birthday but as this was my first trip to Dubbo I had no idea where to choose. I decided to try Bluegum as it was ranked #1 on Trip Advisor and honestly, we weren't disappointed. The motel staff were super nice and very friendly, and the motel owner even helped arrange an early checkin / late checkout to accommodate our flight times from Sydney. The motel location was perfect and central for us, and our twin room was clean and simple (which is just what we wanted). I'd be happy to stay again. Thanks guys!

Stayed here on a recent business trip out west. It is located on the highway but still relatively handy to the main street of town. The highway location was not noisy. Well appointed, clean and tidy room.

Stayed here for 3 nights on business, Sunday to Wednesday and what a nice 3 days.The moment i arrived i was warmly welcomed by Rob & Manda. They directed me around town with a map that was very handy. Plenty of resturants,pubs,takeaway,shopping all close. Checked me into my room real quick. I had upstairs and the room was perfect. Bed,linen & pilows clean & real comfy. Everything you need in a motel room, T.V with Netflix, table & chairs, Desk, 2 comfy chairs & minibar fridge,nice bathroom & great split system. Room is serviced every day. Had a few motorbikes arrive Sunday night & leave Monday morning so that was a good alarm clock (not in a bad way). You can order Breakfast or Dinner. Ordered the breakfast on checkout morning and it was real good. It was a great 3 days of relaxation and would stay again. Thanks Rob & Manda for your Hospitality.

"Pleasantly Surprised"

We stayed at this motel on 08/04 and 09/04 2016. The motel was fully booked that weekend due to a motorbike ride through Dubbo. We stayed in Room 17. We loved that the room was recently renovated and very modern. Netflix was a great bonus and appreciated that the king size bed is in fact a king size bed and not two singles pushed and zipped together!!! This motel is in an excellent location, within walking distance of lots of good restaurants. My only negative comment is that the room overlooked a very run down home with overgrown backyard and a large noisy dog that barked whenever someone walked past. We understand that this is completely out of the control of the motel. We would stay here again though. Rob and Amanda were great hosts.

Rob Z, Owner at BEST WESTERN Bluegum Motel, responded to this review
Thank you for your wonderful comments about our accommodation and hospitality. We have spared no expensive in renovating our new 4* rooms and the guest feedback has been amazing. We're glad you loved our pillow-top king bed and Netflix facilities :-) Our apologies for the barking dog in the neighboring property. Just like some dogs don't like storms, this dog did not like the noise of all the motorcycles in town! Fortunately the dog was moved/relocated a few days after your stay (2 months ago now). I wasn't sure if guests would be able to hear the dog from where the rooms are located but I remember the dog being particularly unsettled that weekend. We're delighted that you otherwise had a fantastic stay. We'd love to welcome you back next time you travel to Dubbo. Best wishes, Manda and Rob (owners)

We booked a renovated 4 star room. The room was a pleasant surprise with nice décor and quality fittings. The room was tucked away in a quite location of the hotel with no traffic noises from the highway. The owner was very welcoming and informative and his recommendations for places to dine were excellent. Overall a great experience with the renovated rooms.

24/05/2016

We arrived after a long day in the car with our 3 children. My husband was greeted by a friendly manager who let myself and the kids head up to our room to get sorted while completing check in. Opened our door to find an immaculate room and facilities that is not often seen when we travel with children. Some family rooms are just not accommodating, but room 18 gave us a quiet room away from road noise, very comfortable beds and a lovely hot shower. Thank you for making our stay a pleasant one.

"What a surprise"

23/05/2016

Even though I choose this motel due to the ratings and images from TA, I was still surprised to find my room was better than most 4 star hotels I have stayed in. Much better. I stayed in the Superior King Room (room 17) and to be honest, I was considering staying over for another night in Dubbo as my room was great, I was enjoying the food in Dubbo as well the country hospitality. I will stay here again on my next visit.

"Very nice with great service."

Arrived here in the evening to be greeted by a very pleasant manager who offered an upgrade from queen to king at only $20 additional. Best $20 ever spent as we ended up in room 5 which has just been fully renovated with Netflix thrown in. Highly recommend staying here as nothing was a problem and extremely helpful. Fabulous room and great friendly service. Can't recommend enough and would definitely stay here again.

From the outside this place looks like any other motel in Dubbo but inside the rooms are more like a 5 star hotel suites. It's been freshly renovated and they've got good taste. The rooms are generously furnished and have all the mod cons you could possibly want. Coffee machine, smart TV and free Netflix. The service was great too I honestly could fault the place. I'll definitely be back.

I travel to Dubbo every few weeks for work. This is the fourth place I've stayed at and will stay here from now on. You have the choice of a three or four star room. I stayed in a four star. My room was very spacious, comfortable and clean. I love that there were slippers and a robe in the wardrobe. The staff are extremely helpful and hospitable. Recommended some restaurants for dinner and cafes for breakfast which saved me having to find somewhere myself. Very happy with my stay.

We were most impressed with Blue Gum. We stayed two nights, and must say that these days mainly stay at apartments, and it had been some while since last being at a motel. But we were most pleased when reading on-line of the capital improvements, that we signed on to stay here. It was the upgrade that was the deal maker. Our room on ground floor had been recently refurbished to a high standard. Crisp, white, gleaming bathroom complete with a hands-free LED illuminated mirror. A king bed, and comfy tan sofa. Very good block out curtains..these are quality drapes. Also to note is the helpfulness and friendly manner of Owner Rob. Who assisted with BBQ tools and a restaurant recommendation too.

Stayed in a premium king room which was newly renovated, luxurious bathroom with first class fixtures and furniture. Included kitchenette, coffee pod machine and free netflix. Should be rated 5 star.

27/04/2016

We enjoyed a 2 night mid week stay during the school holidays. The motel is well located on the main road into Dubbo and not far from the city centre. We received a very friendly welcome from Rob, who booked us in and helped us with directions on how best to reach the local attractions and with recommendations of places to eat. Our room was immaculate, well appointed, roomy and very clean. We were especially pleased with the real bed provided for our granddaughter, no roll-outs, sofa-beds or camp beds here. Although next to the main road, we were not disturbed in the slightest by traffic noise. Room service is available for dinner and breakfast, but Rob was very generous with his recommendations of local eateries. In summary, an excellent motel, and now our first choice of motels in Dubbo.

Rob Z, Owner at BEST WESTERN Bluegum Motel, responded to this review
Thank you for your huge compliment Ian! We are bursting with pride that you thought our accommodation and hospitality was excellent and that we are now your first choice in Dubbo.

We stayed here for a night and were amazed at the rooms and how clean and new the rooms were.

The staff were also extremely helpful, giving us a very thorough introduction to dubbo.

Warm, friendly welcome on arrival and very helpful throughout our stay. The room was spotless and beds comfortable. My only gripe would be the water from the shower spreads across the bathroom floor. This is a common problem and certainly not one that would prevent me from either staying there again, or recommending it to travellers. The quiet air conditioning unit too was a real blessing when so many air cons in hotels tend to be noisy. Thank you Blue Gum. We would definitely stay again and recommend your establishment.

Rob Z, Owner at BEST WESTERN Bluegum Motel, responded to this review
Thank you for your top marks on our clean and comfy accommodation and warm hospitality. We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay. Our silent airconditioners were enjoyed throughout our long, hot summer and will no doubt be put to good use over winter too. Sorry you experienced water on the floor after showering.

I stayed for two nights, and was very impressed by the warm and friendly service, as well as the cleanliness and presentation of the rooms. Manda was very welcoming, and provided great information on attractions in town, where to eat and specific details on a particular event I was attending. Complimentary apples and water were also much appreciated after a long drive, and were very nice touches. Also a very well-stocked mini-bar!

09/04/2016

We stayed in an Executive King Room (#6), and were pleasantly surprised by the clean, modern room. Light music was playing when we entered; a nice touch. The room appeared to be very recently professionally refurbished with attention to comfort, quality and detail. Even the lighting was good. The shower was great, with a large rainhead, and spacious glass enclosure. An LED backlit mirror above the glossy white vanity cabinet was an attractive feature. The bed was also great; firm but comfortable, with fluffy pillows and immaculate white linens. The television was a large HD flat screen with Net Flix and other internet apps for catching our favorite shows at our convenience. The kitchenette was well equipped with a good pod-style coffee maker, a microwave, a glass-front mini-bar fridge, a toaster, electric kettle, dishes, and and a sink with drainboard. Note: there is no freezer section, but the office offered to re-freeze our icepaks as we were travelling with a small picnic cooler. The room included a leather sectional sofa and dinette table with 2 chairs, a large window, and a quiet, efficient AC unit. Our hosts had an open, friendly, and obliging manner, and made us feel warmly welcome with complementary fresh fruit and bottled water. They also had ready advice on local dining, and a brochure and timetable for the zoo. We were actually sorry to move on after our 3 night stay!

Rob Z, Owner at BlueGum Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your beautifully detailed review of our accommodation and service. It is really fantastic to read guest feedback and note what stuck in their mind about our newly renovated rooms and service, both of which we take enormous pride in.

07/04/2016

I stayed here on business and the rooms were very well presented, clean and pleasant to be in. The room service is amazing, the food is home cooked style meals and are very delicious. The service is excellent and they are very helpful and friendly. There were two draw backs - the rooms are not sound proof, being a light sleeper I could hear everything the neigbours were doing - which is a real hate of mine with hotel rooms. The other draw back is the Wifi was unreliable, very slow and kept dropping out.

Rob Z, Owner at BlueGum Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your wonderful feedback on our 3.5* queen rooms, service and evening meals. We have many corporate travellers who love the convenience and freshness of our meals. We're sorry to hear that your sleep was interrupted by a noisy neighbour. Our building is double brick but I know the pain of being an extremely light sleeper. As to the Wi-Fi, it was probably as simple as being connected to the wrong Wi-Fi router. We have 2 ISP's and 4 routers to ensure high coverage at the front and rear of the motel. If you experience low or intermittent signal in your room at the front of the motel, it is likely your device picked up the rear router. I wish you had of mentioned it at the time of your stay as this would have been a quick fix. We're always here to help. Thanks again for staying. Best wishes, Manda and Rob (owners)

We called in on Tuesday on our way home, travelling from below Sydney, had plans to visit the zoo, were offered a very good room (No. 4) at a very reasonable rate, decided to stay two nights, and travel home on the Wednesday. Visited the zoo, then the jail, returned tired and grubby, to find fresh milk in the fridge,clean linen, lights on, and soft music playing! How welcoming! complementary fruit and water on leaving. Clean large room, no traffic noise to speak of. Would stay again if passing through! Very helpful hosts!

Blue Gum Motor Inn is a great place to stay. The staff are incredibly friendly and the service is exceptional. The room was new and clean. I had the breakfast, and it was quality food. I highly recommend this Motor Inn, it is good value for money.
