They have comfortable, well appointed rooms. Very reasonably priced & in a great location. We were greeted on arrival by a very friendly & helpful proprietor. A taxi was ordered for us which arrived promptly and on our return trip a taxi also arrived quickly.

Stayed one night and the room clean. The bathroom is a bit dated. It was only 5 degrees when I arrived so inside was very cold and took forever to heat up. I was upstairs near closer to the highway and was awake pretty much all night due to the trucks on the highway. There are traffic lights just Dow... More

Just booking in was a pleasure as greeted by the host with a friendly smile. Room was spacious and had all you need with kitchenette, bathroom accessories, adequate lighting and aircon. Could not have asked for more. I do a lot of traveling and I have to say this was one of my favourite overnight stops. Had dinner at the... More

I called before hand to ask pricing on rooms as I'm only staying one night in Bathurst and needed something reasonable. Friendly staff and very reasonable pricing! A decent size room with free wifi, Foxtel and two complimentary drink cards for a local pub where my friend and I had dinner. Very well run, will definitely recommend and return!

Staff very friendly and informative. Rooms were clean and facilities were all working well. Just bear in mind its close to the highway so bring ear plugs. Only criticism I have is the shower, which has a shower head that must be held in your hand for someone tall like me. I would still return though, nice motel.

The room was comfortable and spacious .It had everything from clean sheets, comfy bed, good quality furniture, microwave, kettle, tea coffee, cookies, iron...(&foxtel and free wifi!).... More

Ben Chifley would have to be one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. It was my first time to Bathurst and I was beyond freezing. Our room was lovely and warm, bed nice and cosy. For the first time ever in my life there was instant hot water in the shower. Was worried about the service station... More

Spacious family room. Very affordable. Friendly and welcoming service. Rooms were clean and so were the premises. Beds were hard but comfortable. Quiet with little noise in back of motel. Pleased we stayed there & one to remember for next time.

We found this motor inn to be affordable, quiet and within walking distance of restaurants and cafes. Staff were friendly and let us know what was happening around town - plus the free wi fi worked well for our needs.

Found good reviews helpful. Good-looking motel on highway but not noisy. Friendly, helpful greeting. Rooms delightful, although not new obviously well maintained. Quite spacious with good bed and welcome electric blanket to counter chilly Bathurst nights. Would recommend.
