“Great Choice for Comfortable Accommodation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014

Look no further than The Bowen Inn Motel if you're looking for accommodation in the Blue Mountains/Lithgow area. The rooms are clean and spacious, modern and neatly set out. Comfortable beds and great shower. Free WiFi and Continental Brekkie included.
The staff are all friendly and helpful, and happy to have a chat to you or help you out with any queries you may have.
Will definitely be staying here again if I am to visit and stay overnight in the Mountains.

We will continue to return to this gorgeous little place. You come to expect a clean room, decent food & a quiet nights sleep, but it's all the extras that make such a difference. The staff went out of their way to make us feel at home, the food was great (huge portions so you won't leave feeling hungry) & the rooms are furnished in a way that makes you feel like you're a guest in someones house, not at a motel (think artwork, cute throws & even bath salts). We'll be back for sure!

Beautifully presented rooms with comfy beds and block out blinds...I could have slept in all day! Gorgeous cosy restaurant with an open fire makes it the perfect winter getaway. Super friendly staff that go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable. Would recommend this motel for anyone passing through lithgow or simply want to have a weekend away from the busy city life of Sydney.

We had a lovely stay at the Bowen Inn recently over the easter weekend. We stayed on good friday and the staff where lovely and we had a delicious continental breakfast in the morning. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. Great facilities. Perfect for a stay in the Blue Mountains. Great place!

This motel is great. The owners (Ian & Tracey) take great pride in ensuring that everything is just right, and it shows. The rooms are clean and spacious with a huge ensuite including a shower more like the size you get in a 5star hotel. Breakfast is included. The position is good for the major blue mountain attractions. Would definatley recommend.

En route Sydney to Dubbo I stayed at the Bowen Inn with my 3 year old. Easy to find off the highway, easy parking right outside the room. Receptionist friendly and helpful, had even rang me earlier in the day to let me know that they had to shut the restaurant early that night - much appreciated given I was eating there with my child. Also, given that I turned up with a toddler who then proceeded to scream for 15 minutes once we got out of the car (slight misunderstanding between me and him over a lolly), no one batted an eyelid at our arrival and the accompanying noise.

Got a standard room with a sofa bed for the 3 year old. Very clean room, comfortable beds. Good hot shower. TV with ABC for kids on it. Clean cold fridge, stored our milk and snacks in there no problems. Free tea and coffee making facilities in room. Very pleased with room.

Restaurant very pleasant, nice decor and relaxed feel. Food good for dinner. Continental breakfast great, lots of choice. Cooked breakfast extra but prices seemed reasonable for Australia.

In summary - good motel to stop for a night, I would stay there again and recommend it.
