“Highly recommended for rooms and service”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

We stayed at Bishop's Court on a recent business trip from the US. The house and rooms are both a pleasure, extremely comfortable and welcoming. Christine, the innkeeper, treated us as friends as well as guests and was very helpful in suggesting things to explore and providing delicious breakfasts and teas. The grounds and gardens are an oasis and the location a good base for exploring the historical towns nearby as well as convenient to the University and downtown. Would have no reservations in highly recommending Bishop's Court Estate for business or pleasure stays. As Americans, only concern was more TV Olympics coverage of Aussies than US but not the innkeeper's decision.....

Room Tip: Ask for upstairs room with balcony access

My husband and I were fortunate to return last night to Bishops Court. Christine and David envelope everyone of their guests with such warmth it is as if you are visiting close wonderful friends in a special special place. The divine unique bedrooms and bathrooms are 10 star... no stone is unturned to deliver luxury at its best. Relaxing in the lounge, in front of the roaring log fire, with a glass of wine or a pot of tea reading the latest fabulous magazines does not get any better. Christine and David you have put BATHURST on the map with BISHOPS COURT as a MUST RETURN TO DESTINATION.... Cant wait to return and enjoy yet another of your beautiful rooms and hospitality sooooooon. Heather and Peter Ahrens

Room Tip: The Botanica room was filled with winter sunshine and looking out at the garden was wonderful.

We escaped from Sydney on a Friday afternoon for a stolen weekend away - it was my husband's birthday. What an absolute treat Bishop's Court is - an absolute "must" in Bathurst. Christine and David made us feel at home immediately and catered to our every whim and need. An unbelievably luxurious and indulgent "home" with bowls of chocolates everywhere, a roaring fire, endless good wine, and a wonderful sense of serendipity. We absolutely fell in love with Chocolat and Latte (2 Burmese cats) and would move in permanently if we could! David even took us around the racetrack before dropping us off for dinner.
Just be aware that due to the heritage listing of the building the bathrooms are not en-suite (except one room). Our bathroom was heavenly, but a few steps down the hallway. It didn't bother us at all, but just a consideration.
We can't wait to go back....

Room Tip: The Botanical Room is the only one on the ground floor and is huge with a heavenly bed and very luxu...

I have just shared the most wonderful weekend with my husband and 5 other couples who are all close friends. We had been planning this weekend away for several months and as a return visitor had been looking forward for some time to arriving on the Friday afternoon. We arrived and were so warmly welcomed it is hard to believe our hosts were almost strangers as we felt like we were returning home. We had been corresponding for sometime, planning the special candle-lit dinner in the quite stunning chapel now dedicated to fine dining. We had an exquisite dinner on the Saturday evening, lovingly prepared by Christine and her amazing staff. I cannot recommend more highly this beautiful sanctuary which provided each of us with wonderful respite from our busy city lives. Thanks Christine Zoe and Grace for your warmth, hospitality and incredible passion and commitment. Your attention to every detail made our stay memorable. We can't wait to bring our friends back again. Barbara and Stephen Campany

How can 1 Night be so life enhancing? Meeting Christine and David at Legalls patisserie for great coffee and pastries was like meeting up with old friends. Words can not describe what wonderful people they both are which is why they have such a great place in Bathurst. Bishops Court is a beautifully restored 1870 home which has had great touches done by both Christine and David. The warmth and welcome atmosphere, the comfy beds, great lounge with an open large fireplace, great gardens and a beautiful walk out verandah from our room ~ what more could you ask for. We recommend BishopsCourt to everyone and can not wait to go back.

I will never stay anywhere else in Bathurst ever again! After staying at a local hotel for 3 weeks until I found Bishops Court, I didn't know what I didn't know....

Bishops Court is a uniquely magnificent property, impeccably and lovingly restored and maintained by Christine and David in a way that even the most discerning guest will be in awe of!

Regina and her staff were fantastic and made sure every detail was attended to. I found myself wanting for nothing!


A destination I will surely visit with grest delight once more.

Arriving in Bathurst on a Saturday afternoon with car trouble, we had to find somewhere to stay the night. We found Bishop's Court and were so lucky to obtain a room. This 1870's beautifully restored home is just lovely, with such commitment to detail of original decor, comfort, warmth and welcome - you feel like you are stepping back in time.

Our hosts, Christine and David, could not have been kinder to us, so knowledgeable of the area and history of Bathurst We had a lovely room, the bed so comfy and warm, with walk-out verandah, nice gardens. The lounge room has sink-into lounges, beautiful large open fireplace (not to mention a gin and tonic), soft music and other guests to chat with. Breakfast was the best - a wonderfully laid almost banquet table fit for a royal visit (with real serviettes and serviette rings). Home-made muesli, home-made fruit conserves, just delicious, country eggs with yolks almost orange and cooked so many ways to perfection.

We will certainly be back again. We recommend Bishop's Court to everyone who appreciates being made to feel pampered and special.
