The staff were exceptionally friendly and went above and beyond in helping to make our stay comfortable. The pool was super clean and refreshing and the room spacious and very clean. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you!

Whilst I do normally respond to reviews I think I should clarify this review. Yes we made a mistake and booked them in for 1 night when they wanted 2, the email reservation confirmation sent on 17th August clearly states 1 night and they did not respond at that time. Fortunately 3 days before their arrival they rang to confirm...

Travelled to Bathurst for Challenge Bathurst event at Mount Panorama. Easy to find location on the highway but not noisy. Friendly reception and well presented clean room. Easy walking distance to take away food outlets and hotel with dine in facilities.

The new management have improved things and we had a great stay. A little dated but good value for the money. Clean and well managed. Ask for one of the back rooms away from the highway as it is quieter. Tina was great and while you are there ask her to show you her new Harley.

Ben Chifley is Bathurst's most famous son, Australia's PM during the late 1940s. The motel has been named in his honour and in many ways reflects the simple, uncomplicated values the man was said to live by. Don't come here expecting the top end of town - the budget prices should tell you that anyway. Check in was a delight...

I took my girlfriend and little sister to the inland sea of sound music festival in Bathurst. We got a room for three and it was great. Location was perfect, easy to get to the centre of Bathurst and it wasn't too far from the festival. Beds were clean and comfortable, slept like a baby. Service was incredible! We booked...

First review I have ever been inspired to do.

Stayed two separate nights a week apart. We were booked into a budget room for both nights but scored a standard double room on the second stay due to a double booking. Both rooms were clean and tidy. Foxtel was available but not all channels are available. The free WiFi was fast with no dropouts. The budget room was adequate...
