Country Comfort
Great location allowed us to walk to all shops, restaurants and pubs. Quiet location with very spacious and comfortable rooms. The staff were very friendly, helpful and offered great insight to the local attractions. We were able to do some travelling using Dubbo as our hub and it was good to come back to a clean and comfortable room to relax. Centrally located for trips to the Zoo and Dubbo Observatory which we both enjoyed. Would definitely stay there again if in the area.

Quality accommodation on the highway, but no highway noise. The King room is very large with a big deep bath. Would recommend and would stay again if returning to Dubbo.
