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.

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

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.
