“Best Western Coachman's Inn Motel - Fantastic stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

We stayed 1 night in this motel. We were upgraded to a King Room at no extra cost. Everything was beautifully clean, neat and comfortable. All electrical and data items worked and the free internet was great. Four of us went to dinner and the meals were lovely. Wholesome, plenty of food and well presented. The wine was great. Tony (owner/operator) is a man of many talents as he was able to run the front desk, be wine waiter, as well as taking the orders and presenting the food on our tables. My daughter and her husband have a 6 month old and they inadvertenly left the baby blanket in the bed. Tony phoned them and they were able to collect the blanket on their way home. What fantastic service. We couldn't have asked for better. Thank you

Our daughter is considering studying at Charles Sturt University so we found ourselves needing one nights accommodation in Bathurst so she could take a campus tour.
We stayed at this motel on a Saturday night after booking via wotif.
The owners are friendly and approachable and gave us some good dinner recommendations.
The room was clean and comfortable and a good size for our family of 4.
I'm a bit hard to please when it comes to finding a mattress comfortable. Unfortunately I tossed and turned all night.
The traffic noise didn't bother me but this motel is located on the highway and is a little out of town.
All in all this was a convenient place to spend the night.

Stayed for a couple of night with work. Friendly and helpful owners and staff. Large roomy and comfortable rooms which are well appointed. Only drawback is truck noise at times from inconsiderate truck drivers on the highway using exhaust brakes in a built up area. Recommend it as a nice easy going place to stay.

I stayed in this motel again due to my previous positive experience here. I had stayed two years ago and the staff were just as friendly and helpful. I am a V8 racing fan and staying here was great value with bus pickup just outside. Its nice to open a room which smells fresh and clean. Just ask and the staff are happy to accommodate any request or point you in the right direction. We were able to arrange breakfasts and even lunches, get washing done while at the races! The restaurant offered great choices when open or there are a lot of choices within a short walk or drive. We also found that local eateries in town were happy to deliver as well. So you are not limited to the most obvious takeaways and or delivery options.
I would be more than happy to return here again when staying in Bathurst.

Room Tip: Think about your needs - do you need or want a couch, table or chairs. Do you want a bath or shower...

I joined Best Western rewards program after having had excellent service from them at other hotels in Australia. Had the Coachman's Inn been my first and only experience with Best Western I don't think I would stay with the chain again. Reception staff are polite but curt. The rooms face onto a major road so we were awoken many times during the night by large trucks braking for the adjacent traffic lights. The restaurant was closed (apparently it closes for the weekend which we found very odd as we would have thought that was when they would get most business.) The place does not have a welcoming feel, and what made this even more apparent is the 2 page 'manifesto' to be found in the motel information folder in the room listing the 'dos and don'ts' of what can be done in the room (this includes moving furniture - we were worried about putting a chair closer to the TV...), how you will be asked to leave if you break any of the rules, how your credit card can be charged for just about anything at their discretion, and how, by signing in at the front desk, you agree to be bound by these rules (which my solicitor mate reckons is both unbinding and illegal). I will give Best Western another go, but not here.

Room Tip: All rooms appear to face Littebourne St. I have no idea where this road goes, but it really carries...

We are sorry to hear you were not happy with your stay at the BEST WESTERN Coachman’s Inn Motel. We like to make everyone feel welcome while they are staying with us. And am unsure as to why reading our Terms and Conditions made you feel unwelcomed.
Our Restaurant is advertised on all our sites, including the site you booked on, as open Monday to Thursday evenings. Our busy period for the Restaurant is during this period which is why we are opened then.
We do have Terms and Conditions of Stay, which you will find in most other motels. Unfortunately we have had some bad experiences with all of these things mentioned in our terms and conditions which is why they are listed. They also enable us to provide a pleasant and peaceful atmosphere for all our guests.
We are unsure why you took offence to these conditions as they refer to items belonging to the motel being taken from rooms, Room degradation(vomit, bodily waste damage to room), Damage to rooms, Rooms being left in unsaleable condition, parties in rooms, Disturbance to other guests, Guests leaving without paying etc. It would be petty to really think you felt you were unable to move a chair to sit on. I’m sure you can understand why these conditions are in place. In the 5 years we have been at this motel you are the first person to have an issue with the Terms and Conditions of Stay being in our Compendium in the room. As they were such an issue for you and seemed to be the thing that made you feel unwelcomed, we are unsure why you felt you were unable to express your feelings while you were here. We may have been able to put your mind at ease so you could enjoy the rest of your stay.
We do appreciate your feedback regarding the cleanliness of our property which we take great pride in.
We hope you will be able to come back and see us again soon.

Kind Regards
Management
