I had booked a large group into this property which was a mistake. Most of the rooms are pretty tired although a few have been recently renovated. The booking process was chaotic with some bookings lost and checkin was time consuming despite names having been provided in advance. To cap it off, they hadn't mentioned that they were 'temporarily' not... More

I expected the budget family Room that I had paid for 3 ahead of my visit. Unfortunately, despite still currently being offered on line, the room I booked was not available when I checked in. Reception staff advised it would be at least a number of weeks before it was available. What I received was a lesser room featuring Moths,... More

This motel is pretty much an icon in Bathurst. I agree that the owners are lovely, but the place is in real need of updating . Trying to find our room number in the dark with the number written in pencil was a bit tricky. We stayed in the family unit which was very old. I honestly believe that new... More

After a long day of travelling was nice to have a warm welcome. Rooms are dated but clean and comfortable. Nice quite location. Kids loved meeting the owners horse who resides there. Just out of town but close to shops. But more importantly great heating on these cold nights. If you don't mind a dated room highly Recommended.

Apart from that the staff were all friendly and incredibly helpful. Val Is an absolutely wonderful person, and someone who will do her very best to ensure you... More

Out of town very out dated and basic. Paid $130 for a twin through booking but I'd say its worth maybe $90. The gentleman that checked me in was lovely and very approachable. It's clean just outdated. Don't love it but don't hate it just a place to lay your head beds are of the hard variety.

So very outdated and desperately in need of a total refurbishment. Learnt a lesson from this experience to check rooms out prior to paying first as we thought with the price $120 (budget) especially for this time of the year and in the country. Price in NRMA booklet stated cheaper prices and we thought paying $120 this would have been... More

Located on what I thought was the outskirts of Bathurst is this old motel. Would have been great in the 70;s and has not had a refurb since then. Im guessing the bedspreads are from then too... It was clean but old. Laminated fold down table and chairs from the same era. The bathroom was very clean but also very... More
