Position is excellent close to airport.Staff helpful and rang to book taxi to take us to airport as shuttle bus doesnt run during the night. Rooms basic but clean.No restaurant so have to walk to McDonalds or KFC for something to eat.

Shuttle bus from the airport, after arriving late at night, closeby to airport, comfortable bed, lovely pillows, what more could you want transitting through to your next flight/trip. Perfect. Brekky included, although basic, meets all needs. Now if you want to walk to the train station from here, its a bit of a mish mash with a lot of roadwork... More

It's a budget hotel and it's true to form. It was still being renovated downstairs while we were there. The lifts are cramped the staff not very helpful. The room & bathroom were tiny hardly enough room for the ancient porta cot they provided. They charged us for the airport transfer which was literally around the corner but then didn't... More

On the positive side, it was clean, the mattress was comfortable and the TV worked. Don't expect any frills. No toiletries, no hairdryer, no windows that open, no cupboard, no pictures on the walls, no telephone in room, no wake up call. Spartan...and not really a short stroll to terminals... more like 20 minutes not pedestrian friendly terrain.

I have stayed here a few times before and found always that it was a mix of comfort and convenience to the domestic terminal. This time I stayed overnight having just flown from Singapore after a lengthy trip from Amsterdam, and due out by bus early the next morning. As before, the room and bed is comfortable, though relatively small... More

Why does some Ibis Budgets not accept our Le Club card, those that DO NOT accept the club card treat members with disrespect not very welcoming. The Dubbo Ibis Budget was of the highest standard very welcoming and assisted with our bagage and even supplied a bottle of cold water to both of us AAAAA++++++ to this Ibis Budget.

Or so it seems, arriving after 28 hours i had to wait to get my room if only 30 mins though 2. They still need to clean... More
