Our Story!!

Owner operators and husband & wife team, Robert and Amanda Zatta, crossed the Victorian border in January 2014 to live our dream of renovating and operating the Best Western Bluegum Motel. With a strong background in project management (medical based) and I.T. we knew we would have the right skillset for the very large task at hand.

We embarked on our first two room renovations in our first year – our Premier King Rooms which we completed in August 2014. The high end finish and attention to detail including stone bench tops, walk-in frameless shower, custom furnishings and top of the line surround sound & Smart TV, rival any big city hotel. We knew we were on the right track as the popularity of these rooms was unprecedented!

We finished a further 5 rooms in April 2015 to the same high level of detail as the first, to offer an Executive King with gorgeous leather chaise lounge, Superior Queen/Twin and several Superior Family rooms. Following their release we saw our corporate business traveller base sharply increase.

We joined the BEST WESTERN family in April 2016 and to the delight of our loyal corporate guests (and us!), we completed renovating the entire back section of the property in September 2016 to offer further 4* Superior King & Superior Queen room options — All finished to a meticulously high standard of craftsmanship.

To round out the year, we are currently renovating all guest rooms located at the front of property which are scheduled for completion by mid January 2017 (thus 92% of our guest rooms will be fully renovated). Our last two rooms – arguably our biggest – will be renovated in early 2017. Our design ideas are bubbling away and are nearly ready to come to fruition. Although it is a woman’s prerogative to change her mind 😉

Other major property upgrades include new whisper quiet split-system air conditioners (Oct 2014), HotelHome custom bedding (2015), Sealy Commercial Posturepedic pillow-top beds (2015), block-out drapes & sheers (2015), Vintech hotel mini-bar fridges (2015), 50” Samsung Smart TVs (2016), state of the art CCTV surveillance system throughout property grounds and commercial upgrade of Wi-Fi to high speed dual fibre.

We welcome you to stay at the Best Western Bluegum Motel where we pride ourselves on offering quality accommodation and excellence in hospitality and service. We’d be delighted to share with you why we fell in love with Dubbo and the Central West, and all it has to offer.
