After staying at this motel I was checking my credit card and noticed an additional $60 fee included on my credit card account....???? Rang and got told she was busy and would ring back...no call, so rang again next day and spoke to Elizabeth. There is nothing on their website or invoice/receipt mentioning any extra fees for cleaning etc, nor... More

Yes, it certainly was a disappointment when I opened the door to this guests room after checkout to find it left in an absolutely disgustingly dirty condition. The white sheets/to[p sheet had mud over them, the sheets had blood all over the bottom of the bed, the white bathroom linen had been used as cleaning rags, covered in mud, hair... More

This motel ticks the boxes for a good night sleep for someone just passing through or maybe as a base to visit Bathurst during a busy race weekend like I was. Despite being on the Highway, it is set well back and I didnt hear a single sound from the highway or from other rooms. The bed was comfortable and... More

I've been meaning to get around to writing this review for some time. I last stayed here a few months ago as a return customer having stayed several times throughout the year. I would describe it as an average 3 star motel. Nothing special, but not bad and fairly priced since dropping their rates a couple of years ago. The... More

This guest has made a false claim of being ripped off with his credit card. At no time has he been ripped off. A single room only was booked and paid for the Saturday night however both beds were used in the room upon inspection the following morning. This guest advised he did not know how the second bed was... More

I live relatively close to this place and needed somewhere to stay for a few nights while I had family in town. I regret wasting my money on this place when there are so many other, better value for money motels in the area. Colonial by name - Colonial by nature. We even joked that the decor was so old...

The writer has incorrect information on this website. Our antenna mast was hit by lightning which also impacted upon the austar boxes. Also during this time, the local television towers were having problems with transmissions to the local area of which was reported several times to Prime which operate the towers in the area.

Would not recommend this to anyone. Way overpriced for what it is. Restaurant closed, I had phoned previously and it wasnt mentioned. First room hadnt been cleaned and the second room was average. There was no plates and cutlery apart from a couple of plastic teaspoons. Cobwebs on windows that had obviously been there a while.There was a list of... More

Glenda G, you were mistakenly put into a room which had not been serviced when you arrived at the motel early during the Bathurst Race weekend however you were then placed into a freshly cleaned room when you checked in early. Our check-in time is 2pm. For this you were apologized to for the error with the room. At no... More

After our super stay last night this one was really poor. We booked after looking at the web which doesn't tell you a great deal. The information showed a restaurant so we went ahead and booked by the phone. When we arrived the managers had a relief in reception who told us they had decided to close the restaurant for... More

These guests arrived later than previously advised arrival time. A permanent staff member was on shift. The restaurant was closed at the time of their arrival due to other motel guests (large sporting group) going to attend a pre-arranged bbq /presentation elsewhere and a large group booking for the restaurant was earlier cancelled, so staff were sent home earlier. These... More

As a solo older traveler this place was a total bonus. It is out of town at Marrangaroo, so you need to shop (where necessary) before you head off to find it. Being out of town meant that when I looked out of my window I saw families of rabbits cavorting in the grass! Very Beatrix Potter! The car was... More

Stayed in a family room with double and three single beds, which were clean and very comfortable. Hotel is getting quite old, we lived in the town 15 years ago and it was an older hotel then, needs some work done. There was a small airconditioner but in Lithgow this isn't enough to keep you warm. There were electric blankets... More

Agree with Richard review that earlier reviews here are terribly unfair. Some reviewers really are detached from reality. My group had a couple of rooms in this motel and found it perfectly adequate. The rooms were of a good size, were clean and adequately equipped. The location just out of town is peaceful and there was no noise from the... More
