I always stay here when in Bathurst for work. The only small negative is that it is a bit of a walk into the main part of town. Otherwise, this place is basic, yet neat, very clean, comfortable and excellent value for money. The owners have also spruced it up a bit too.

We were made to feel very welcomed by the staff and for a budget motel it offered all we needed for our stay, our room was clean and bed and pillows comfortable. The flowering pot plants gave it a homey feel

Stayed given the lack of pet friendly accommodation around the central west. Friendly, helpful staff. Clean room, comfy bed. Would stay there again. Nothing flash but perfect for a cheaper pet friendly stay.

Excellent front service from Motel Manager, check in was fast and easy, rooms are clean, freshly renovated but just needs an extractor fan in the bathroom and the place would be faultless, great breakfast as well.

Room was great. Clean ,comfortable, shower and room. Stopped here driving from Brisbane to Melbourne. Great price. Dog welcome in room.

Friendly, warm and genuine reception by the owner. The room I stayed in had been recently renovated. It was fresh, cosy and very comfortable. The room was very tastefully decorated with stylish touches here and there. The bathroom was impeccably clean. The bed was comfortable. It was refreshing to stay in a motel that has a non-corporate feel. The owners... More

On the Mitchell Highway heading West, this motel is not as central as some, but has plenty going for it none the less. Check In was welcoming, though I gather the receptionist was filling in for a favour and wasn’t completely across all aspects of the accommodation. Parking was tight as there were many SUVs crowding the corner lot. The... More

If you want value for money, definitely recommend this Motel. Reception staff very friendly and welcoming. Rooms are old but clean. Bed was reasonable comfortable. Very little noise despite being close to a Highway. We paid only $88 pn for a couple, very reasonable for a decent motel. Would definitely stay again. I only gave it three stars as I... More

I travel a lot throughout NSW but rarely do I get to stay in such a well priced and superbly appointed motel such as this. recently renovated (although the tiler needs glasses) this is wonderfully comfortable, superbly appointed and super clean. And who doesn't enjoy a $5 breakfast in their special room with alfresco and barbeque area.
