The room was basic but functional and exceeded my expectation for the price paid. We checked out he guest kitchen and it was... More

Hard to find a motel that's not on a busy and therefore noisy highway. Bathurst Explorers Motel is not quite on the road to Orange, but it is close.

Do not let the price put you off. This may be a budget motel but it is really perfect. Not long renovated, the room was small but fresh and clean. Perfect for a short stay. Mia the owner is gorgeous. Extremely personable and friendly. The breakfast is excellent value and should be a must for travelers. Important Warning Note: DO... More

After calling twice to confirm a late check in and more importantly a wheelchair accessible room for two people with disabilities, I was assured that they have noted my requirements. Finally we arrived close to mignight and picked up the key from the late check in box only to discover we had been placed on the second floor up the... More

Good breakfast. Room small but clean and shower was great. I'm easily pleased but look for a good shower and a good nights sleep followed by a good breakfast. I received all three. Staff very knowledgeable and helpful. Helped a lot when searching for places to visit and photograph. Little too far from the CBD to walk other wise easy... More

This is an older motel with very small rooms. But... for an overnight stay whilst on the road, they are doing everything right. Cleanliness can't be faulted. Continental breakfast... perfect. Bed is comfortable. Freshly painted, bright and sparkly. Staff exceptional. Price is right. Free wifi. Parking on site.
