“Exceeded our expectations.”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

We stayed for one night, a last minute decision, not easy to do in the Mountains, usually 2 night minimum. Lovely place, great food in the restaurant.excellent service, a great family business. Friendly, professional and welcoming. We would recommend to anyone. There should be more places with this level of service and care.

The Bowen Inn is very clean, very comfortable and lovely and warm on a cold winter's night.

It is super quiet (especially around the back in room 24), parking right outside, and large comfortable bed, bathroom is well appointed and super clean, free WiFi, for $150.00 a night it gives Sydney CBD motel's a run for there money.

The Continental breakfast is a lovely bonus, fruit, cereal, toast and coffee, simple but so great.

I stayed here last week and can't fault it, and am back as I am working just up the road at Mt Piper.

The staff (Lucy) are also very helpful and friendly, nothing is ever a problem.

Room Tip: Around the back near Room 24 & 24 are very quiet.

Nearly new motel just out of Lithgow shopping area. Well-appointed, clean room. Great food in the their restaurant is definitely a bonus as is the gym. Not a huge range of equipment, but definiitely enough for a workout away from home. Ample parking and free internet.

Room Tip: Ask for a room near reception, then you won't get the road noise.

The Bowen Inn is a well equipped motel and probably the best in Lithgow. I have stayed on half a dozen occasions for work. While the price of around $140 is a bit more than others in Lithgow, it is very quiet (free from highway noise) and has free wifi.

We stayed on a Sunday night on our way to Sydney after failing to find anywhere decent in Katoomba and backtracking to Lithgow. The room was comfy and well appointed. The restaurant was closed which was unfortunate but understandable. Our only issue was that we couldn't get any fresh air without leaving the door open because there were no windows. We would have liked to have fresh mountain air without the security risk of an open door but never mind.

We had booked a last minute room for a night at the Bowen Inn, while visiting the Blue Mountains and Jenolan Caves. Because it was so affordable, I didn't have high expectations. When we arrived, to say we were pleasantly surprised would be an understatement! The room was spotless, beautifully decorated and just lovely! The restaurant has an amazing menu and is very reasonably priced. We met the owner at breakfast the next day, who was completely down to earth and lovely. All in all, a very positive experience and we will definitely be back!
