We came into Dubbo from Broken Hill and were really pleased to roll up to such a well presented and maintained establishment. Trevor on the front desk was a pleasure to meet. The room (11) was large and clean- it had a spa which we enjoyed. This motel shows good management from the cleanliness to the conveniently placed windscreen cleaners...

We stayed 2 nights at The Shearing Shed to allow a full day visit to Western Plains Zoo plus some time just looking around. This is a great place to stay. Walking distance to the main shopping street and some very good restaurants. The rooms were quiet, clean and tidy and looked newly painted. The aircon was very quiet, you...

Very helpful staff. Comfy beds and quite reasonable price right in town. Some noisy pipes audible in the night. Some nice and unfortunately unusual environmental touches... Recycling bins in the rooms. Milk in reusable glass bottles.

After travelling through Dubbo regularly and staying at another establishment, I decided I need a new motel due to wanting a family room. I looked for something good that wouldn't cost an arm and a leg and I found this wonderful motel. From booking to booking out, the whole experience was positive. We arrived a little early for check in...
