Even though we only stayed 1 night, it was well worth the stay. From the initial phone contact until finalising our bill and saying our goodbyes, they were charming country folk. The family room we stayed in was quite big (2 bedrooms). Everything the proprietors did was above our expectations. We had a cooked country breakfast was massive. Value for... More

I had dealings with both the male and female owner operators, although, for the most part, I had dealings with the male. He couldn't have been more accommodating and helpful. He was always ready for a chat and made me feel really comfortable. I chose Ben Chifley motel because of its name and that I was researching Ben Chifley. It... More

I booked at this motel when I could not get a room at my usual motel. The rooms were small and outdated but still clean and comfortable. Maybe new beds would of made my sleep better. Also the breakfast room was only open between 7am and 8 am. The managers were very friendly but seemed a bit over whelmed by... More

Helpful staff when we checked in, but room was expensive, smelly, dated and barely adequate. Not recommended unless no other option.

For $195 for a 2 bed room per night was VERY expensive. Pool had mould in it and rooms very dated.

This was my second trip to bathurst and I choose the Ben Chifley again due to the enjoyable experiences I had the first time. The staff were very helpful even when I had trouble gaining access to the internet, a manager came to my room to assist and next thing I knew was I was connected. The rooms were very... More

When we arrived, discovered there was a $30 fee for access (24hrs). When my wife said that no fee was identified in the RACV guide and our experience was that unless the fee was... More

Its a pitty that some guests forget the real story, like how internet was demanded as per the guide, and how they would never stay again becuase we would not give free internet, and lets not forget how terriable the managers were when they went to great lengths to ensure personal belongings that were left behind by a huffing puffing...
