When we were travelling to Phillip Island we took pot luck on our accommodation and ended up at this motel. The room was basic but comfortable. Some running repairs seemed to be done to the room and the shower area. They gave the place a bit of a rundown feeling. As the Bathurst V8 races were held the week before... More

We stayed there again for the second time. Would I stay there again? Yes I would. Prices aren't bad, rooms a good size and clean. Beds were comfortable. We asked for another pillow which the lady manager got for us cheerfully. The showers worked a treat. The only little downer was that we needed to pre-order our brekky the night... More

WE booked a room having stayed there previously. The room was clean as you would expect. Beds were comfortable and the room quiet. We needed another pillow which the manager got for us no problem. Showers are great and the room not a bad size. The motel itself is well placed in town handy to everything. The only down side... More

We were booked into the Ben Chifley by a tour group so came with no expectations. The owners were very friendly and attentive and are great salespeople for the Bathurst area. The rooms are a good size and clean and the location is very good particularly if you're heading for the great race. We intend to visit the area at... More

Bloody expensive for basic room for two adults and two kids $175. Expensive WiFi available. The bed was hard as buggery with lumpy pillows. Everything electrical had been turned off at the wall and we had to search for the power points to use it. It was supposed to have beakfast facilities, but there was nothing there.

Recently travelled to Bathurst (a few times) and have now had to stay twice at the Ben Chifley. First trip (room I stayed in bed was terrible), second Trip room i stayed in bed was a bit better. Rooms are of good size - not huge and not small. Owners are very friendly and make you feel at home. Very... More

Reception were wonderful at checkin and very helpful to get our bike under cover due to the storm. The rooms are a little dated and the shower set up gave us a little chuckle but it worked just fine. The beds and pillows badly need updating as the pillows were like rock and the bed was not comfortable. We did... More

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
