This was one of the most relaxing and indulgent short breaks we've had in a long time. Our host, Christine, could not have been more thoughtful, welcoming and hospitable and we had a most enjoyable time! Nothing was too much trouble and Christine's staff reflected her friendliness and hospitality. Feeling very lucky we discovered this gem in the Central West....

My wife and I stayed overnight on our way from Bathurst to Lilianfels Katoomba. Upon arriving at Bishop's, Christine offered a warm welcome, showed us though the estate, and then cracked a bottle of champagne, which we enjoyed together, chatting about the rich history and background of the estate. It happens that Christine, and Interior Designer for some top houses,...

My husband and I spent the weekend at the beautiful Bishop’s Court Estate Hotel in Bathurst. From the moment we entered the immaculate grounds it was like being in the middle of nowhere even though it is 5 minutes from the heart of Bathurst. Christine our host was most welcoming and gave us a tour of the house and grounds...

Christine brings back a level of customer service that is lacking in many areas today. The immediate feeling of warmth and friendship surrounds you from the moment you walk through the door. It's obvious to see that years of hard work have gone into the facilities and the gardens which provides a picturesque setting for a quite moments reflection (while...

Epic! That is the only way to describe Bishops Court, the very best B&B experience we have ever had. Five star rooms and facilities.

Christine is a superb host and her team is a credit to her. They made our journey along Route 66 on Friday night a unforgettable experience. The menu was amazing - right down to the cheese and cocktail onions protruding from the pineapple centrepieces. We loved the live music, the food and the cocktails. Overall a wonderful experience.

The standard of food, service, comfort , welcome and ambience are Olympian. Few country establishments can match this boutique hotel in all these points. It's the kind of retreat one expects to find in Europe, not in the Aussie bush.

My husband and I just spent a magical weekend at Bishops Court Estate in Bathurst, travelling there especially to stay at this gorgeous boutique hotel in a beautifully restored historic home.

This was our second stay this year - in fact we made a point of extending our trip just to include another stay at Bishops Court...it really is one of the best properties that we have found.
