Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. It was great to read that you enjoyed your stay, I hope the rest of your pilgrimage to Phillip Island went well.

After some looking we have found which room you stayed in and performed a detailed clean, my apologies that this wasn't to our usual high standards when you stayed.

We look forward to welcoming you back through the hotel next year for the same trip!

Kind Regards,
Andrew

Formulaic and impersonal, clean, expensive (cheap for Bathurst), really nice bathroom, huge tv, great views of mount panorama, handy kitchenette. The hotel is way out of town making it a hassle to get dinner if you don't want the added expense of room service. The room was large enough for our cot to go up.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I'm sorry you didn't feel our service was personal, we do work hard to achieve this but we must have missed a few of those touches during your stay. Yes, we are 5 minutes out of the central CBD of Bathurst, as mentioned in the last review we like to think it is a "country setting" outside of race times. For those guests who do not wish to venture into town, we do also have our own a la carte restaurant on site that offers a superb selection of modern Australian cuisine, which reduces the need for many of our guests to leave the hotel for dinner.

Thank you again and we look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel in the future.

Kind Regards,
Andrew

We stayed here as many others have for a wedding on the mount.
It is certainly the best in Bathurst, however a bit out of town. If you had something on in town , it would probably be worth the taxi fare to stay here.
We had a normal room, really good size, comfortable king size bed, balcony and a mini kitchen.
Everything was very clean and well laid out.
We had breakfast in the morning and it was quite good.
Nothing really negative to say, other than the location not always ideal.

Thank you for your feedback. It was great to read that you enjoyed your stay. Yes, we are a little out of town, but we like to think of this as a "country setting", outside of race weeks of course. Glad you enjoyed the setup of the room.

Have been staying here now most weeks this year, atlesst 1 night a week and found it to be by far the best out of the top other 4 motels in bathurst.
Can be a bit expensive at times and race week, well forget it.
Restaurant is very good but menu is due for a change.

When consider what was on offer at Bathurst many of the higher rated properties on Trip Advisor had issues with upkeep of rooms and beds, or some had staff issues - see other reviews of other properties.

We considered that we couldn't go wrong with a Rydges property that was fairly recently constructed. AND we were right. Staff were helpful, rooms spacious and clean. Just all as we would expect.

Located on the edge of "The Mountain" , it is a beautiful spot to wake up to. Almost no traffic noise from the track overnight. Great kitchen facilities .....

Beware if you have a 300 (third floor) room - they lead onto a grass mound where there is no obvious security, and the sliding doors cannot to securely locked (the key is not provided) - they just have a standard aluminium door latch.

I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Try to get above 300's and you will ge a much better view.

Great huge room with full kitchen facilities. Extremely clean and love the stylish,modern decor.
I can imagine it would be incredibly exciting if you were booked in for the Bathurst 1000..if you got any closer you would be on the track itself..(If you were on the track side of course..)
It is a few minutes drive to the Main Street ..bit of a walk..and nothing else is next to it apart from the race track..just in case you wanted to duck into a local shop..but it's all there anyway with a great dining room and bar.
I ordered the Wagyu Beef Burger for my room service meal and it was delicious.
Friendly staff and the breakfast buffet in the morning was very good .. The house toasted Muesli was one of the best we have ever tried..wished we could buy some to take with us..now there's a thought to suggest to the chef..bag it up and sell it to the guests..

Thanks for your great feedback. We are very proud of our rooms, and do our best to always ensure a well presented product. It was great to see your mention of our staff, and our Muesli. We actually do sell our muesli so next time you come through, please ask our staff and we will be able to bag some up for you.

I stayed here twice, once in September 2012 and another time in October 2012. The first time I stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment. In terms of sleep quality it was good until the sun rose in the morning. I can not sleep past 6am because of the position of the windows in my room and the blinds did not go down all the way so the sun shone into my eyes every morning. Upon using the spa the water was brown and there was dirt in the water so I ended up not using it.

The second time I stayed here I got a studio apartment which was far more comfortable than the 3 bedroom apartment.

The restaurant served quite good food although it was a little pricey and the food took a while to arrive.

Room Tip: Request for a room closer to the reception if you don't want to walk too far to your room. It...

Thank you for the good report. I'm sorry there were a couple of points that affected your stay in the apartment, but glad you returned and enjoyed a different experience.

We have been addressing the blinds in our corner apartments to remedy this issue, and checking our spas. Bathurst can unfortunately experience some instances of "brown" water coming through the pipes, but we are checking the same apartments to ensure the spa cleanliness is up to standard.

Thanks again for the feedback and I look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel in the future.
