Trip Advisor gave it a bit of a wrap so we went there. The rooms are cheap as the place is very basic and the owners appear to be trying hard to lift it a bit however it is old. Unfortunately it is extremely noisy at night when the trucks go through. The windows vibrated and it was difficult to... More

We were on a long drive back from a holiday and decided to stop into a caravan park in Orange which was advertised as being 'Pet friendly'. We were then turned away as it was only for those who had their own van....we checked on the net and found the Explorer and gave them a call. We were relieved to... More

We checked into this motel at the last minute as we decided to overnight in Bathurst to visit friends. The lady at reception was helpful and the room was fresh and clean. There were biscuits with the tea/coffee which you don't often get these days, even with expensive hotels. Breakfast was also available, but we didn't stay for this. This... More

This is a budget motel with basic amenities. The Manager, Paul was very helpful and cheerful at the end of a long day of travelling. We were very grateful for his easygoing, no fuss, can-do attitude and would stay here again due to that alone. Nice continental breakfast and everything with a smile.

I stayed over the weekend with my wife. Couldn't have asked for more helpful and obliging staff. The room was clean and met every need and expectation. Definitely a value for money and a very pleasant stay. Thank you again, Mia!

I found this motel simply by using my TomTom Rider after finishing a few slow laps of Mt. Panorama. Located conveniently on the main road, it was well sign-posted and clean from the street. Reception was very good and easy but advice was to book by phone direct instead of using Internet, as it is much cheaper. The room was... More

Low price, free WiFi, hot shower good flat screen TV, clean room with biscuits to go with the tea & coffee. A little bit further from the city centre but I walked down a few blocks to the pub for a very good meal. I will stay here again.

The Budget, Bathurst Explorers Motel has the most friendliest and polite staff. They have 23 rooms available of various sizes and you cannot fault the spotlessly clean rooms and fairly good value at a nightly rate. The breakfast from $5, is also good value. There are BBQ facilities in the courtyard and the motel and it is "pet friendly" which... More

The staff are very friendly and helpful. The family rooms are perfect for a family of 5 (2 parents, children 14, 12 & 12). Free wifi. Clean rooms with comfy beds. Great $5 breakfast in the dinning room. Close to the Dudley Hotel which offers great meals. Very good value. Bit noisy being on the highway.
