“Sets a high standard”
Reviewed April 22, 2012

As travellers - we have a definite preference for hotels and B&Bs with heritage listing and/or historical significance. We are selective in terms of quality, service, food and the "ambience" that accommodation offers. Bishops Court is a rare find indeed. Although both hosts, Christine and David, had commitments when we were there, every possible effort and consideration was made to ensure that we had a wonderfully relaxing holiday. Breakfasts were a delightful way to start the day and the beautifully restored, historic surroundings highlighted this well-maintained property. Most of all, the staff ( young Zoe ) was always available for dining suggestions and possible tours. We were even escorted to Vale Creek Winery, had a special talk - overlooking the vineyard and had a delicious antipasto lunch provided by the Bishop's Court Kitchen. You just can not beat that! The chocolates and port in each room is a lovely and unexpected treat. The hosts and staff prove all the time that they really care ! Sets a high standard and a worthy recepient of their recent award.

TIP: 1. Tell your hosts - exactly what you want to get out of your stay.
2. Have a good look at the building and especially the old photos.

I have travelled all over the world and stayed at many so called 5 star hotels, but our short weekend at Bishop's Court would have to be one of the best accommodations I have stayed in. The 'Court' is magnificant and beautifully appointed, the service from Christine and David (he even dropped us off at our family birthday party!!!) and the setting, is first class.

The moment you walk through the front door, you will fall in love with the atmosphere that prevails.

Do yourselves a favour, pay a little extra and have a fabulous stay in Bathurst at Bishop's Court. I'd love to go back with a large group of friends and do dinner in the chapel!!

This atmospheric property is a superb retreat and perfect for a romantic getaway. Beautifully appointed and a great deal of attention to detail - from toiletries to fabulous pillows and linen to the fact that it is the most spotlessly clean place I have ever stayed in!
The hosts Christine and David are truly delightful, with nothing too much trouble and caring attentive service without being intrusive. Luxury B+B at its very best.
I will definitely be back and cannot recommend Bishop's Court highly enough, and I am very very fussy!

Room Tip: Only one room has an ensuite, and one on ground floor level, so if you find stairs difficult or requ...

An outstanding Hotel and 5star in the country. Welcomed at the entrance by the owner Christine and our christian names were used ..Wow Rooms are large, beautifully furnished did not want to arise in the am because bed was so comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and service again personal. The highlight however was the birthday dinner in the Chapel for 14 people. Food excellent, service to die for, and the room was stunning. Magic, magic hotel.

Room Tip: Try Botannica room no ensuite but private bathroom is beautiful and BIGGG.
