The reception we received from Paul when we arrived at the motel could not have been better & also when we left. Just a shame that there was no shampoo & conditioner or a hair drier in the room. The room we had was at the front which is near the main highway. The traffic noise was not too bad.

Having stayed for two nights recently at the Bathurst Explorers Motel I would describe it as a very very good budget motel. The staff are very friendly and a special mention to the friendly people who service the rooms. My room was comfortable and clean. It had a reverse cycle split system air conditioner so it was easy to stay... More

Our host Paul is very welcoming and helpful. The room we stayed in was very clean and spacious enough for the 4 of us (me, hubby, and 2 sons aged 16 and 12). The beds, which are our most concern, were all comfortable to sleep in. It's good value for money. May we suggest adding a door or curtain perhaps... More

Travelling to Bathurst for a family celebration, we stayed overnight, Saturday, at Bathurst Explorers Motel. With our Jack Russell also travelling, The Explorer's welcoming "Pet Friendly" policy was key to our choice of accommodation. At 3 Star, our expectations of style and quality of room were not particularly high, however, from the time of our arrival, our Host Paul provided... More

Rooms are small and feel that you are on top of each other with nowhere to sit other than your bed. Motel is budget so is value for the money spent. Has a $5 breakfast that is available and covers continental and you can request hot items too and they are very reasonable in pricing. Owner is very hospitable and... More

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
