Do yourself a favour and stay elsewhere!!! RUDE, ARROGANT, OBNOXIOUS, TOXIC. We travelled from the Gold Coast to Bathurst to attend the GT Falcon Nationals over the last weekend in April. We were assured of off street parking for our 1971 GTHO Falcon, Bettys husband (poor bloke) said there was parking for four cars round the side out of view... More

I would suggest retreat is very appropriate.... as far away from this establishment as possible. Rude, arrogant treatment was unbelievable by Betty the owner. Apalling email response recieved when trying to cancel a booking over 1 month ahead as a result of a mistake (yes my mistake). Should have read Trip Advisor reviews BEFORE making booking.

Months and months ago but I had to say something...... I read the other reviews and I know it wasnt just me... Don't..... just DON'T. Yes it is clean. The bed was comfortable and if the owner did not live there it wouldnt be all that bad. But she does. RUN

We stayed one night at this establishment and found the accomadation clean and comfortable. The position was good in a quiet residential street and the other guests were thoughtfull and courtious. The breakfast was well cooked and plentiful.

Betty should be known as 'Margie' The iron lady she is. Nothing is too much trouble as long as you don't do anything that might put her out. For goodness sake don't get up early for Breakfast. It's 7.30 am you know. NOT 7.15am. Stay in your room till it is ready or your in trouble. Poor Phil (hubby) no... More

I stayed with my partner and daughter when I needed to be in Bathurst for residential school at the university while I was studying. This was over a year ago but I wanted to provide a review as I really feel our experience warrants mentioning for future potential guests. We had a horribly uncomfortable stay as we felt continually watched... More

Instead of arranging everything properly, host preaches on how to use bathroom, sink, parking etc as soon as you arrive. Layout of house makes privacy absolutely impossible, also no noise isolation in rooms. Asked for non-smoking, but had my bedroom filled with smoke right before going to bed. Had to share bathroom with other guests, though was initially assured that... More
