Good location. Included breakfast was a welcome surprise. A little more traffic noise than we expected. Ashtrays along the shared verandah encouraged smoking directly outside every door. Not pleasant for non smokers.

We were upgraded to one of their recently refurbished rooms with king bed. The bathroom was adequate with a large showerhead - great for travel-weary folk! A few little extras such as fly spray and air freshener were a bonus. We had a great sleep as the hotel was not located on the highway. Saying that, the only problem we had were the truck-drivers checking out of the hotel accross the road starting up their trucks early morning. We ended up leaving early and missed our complimentary breakfast.

Room Tip: Try to get a corner room away from the main road

We used this motel as a base for a family celebration . Excellent service provided by the front desk as we booked in additional guests . Quiet location even though just a block from the Main Street. Exceptionally clean & comfortable !

Governor Macquarie Motor Inn Bathurst

The Hotel is well located on the eastern side of the CBD, just off the Mitchell Hwy (approx 50M). It is a 5 minute walk to the shopping district with a number of Fast food outlets within 100-200m. There is a lovely park on the banks of the Macquarie river (5 minutes walk) with a number of Historical buildings and monuments to the Founding of the city and its early Pioneering families.

The Motor Inn looks like it was built around the 1960s with most rooms elevated about 10 steps off the ground on the first level (flood precaution?) Wheelchair access accommodation is available. There is ample off street parking for vehicles.

We were advised that Rooms are currently classified into three quality levels, Budget (Double bed), Renovated (Queen bed) or New (Queen or King bed). This report relates to the mid level known as 'Deluxe' or Renovated.

The reception service was pleasant and efficient. The room was clean and fresh with no stale smells. The 'renovation' does not relate to the whole room, rather a partial job. The Shower and Toilet room has been retitled and has a new Toilet. The Shower worked well with good Hot water and pressure. The Hand basin sits outside the Shower and Toilet in the general bedroom space. It was probably original with the basin and vanity both cracked and showing age. (see photo)

There is a new Inverter A/C mounted above the hand basin with, curiously, an older Reverse cycle A/C mounted on another wall with a sign apologising for its being there while also stating that it didn't work. The bed and pillows were comfortable and afforded a good nights sleep. The carpet was in good order. The was no noise evident from the Highway.

The TV worked without fault. A mini bar fridge is supplied (no ice tray) along with Tea and Coffee making facilities inc. fresh Milk. For drinking there were two mugs, two wine glasses and two water glasses.

The room rate included a Continental Breakfast for two, served in the main Dining room. Food choice included; two juices, 5 Cereals, 4-5 Breads, Preserved Fruits, Yoghurt, Full Cream and Lite Milk, Tea Bags, Filtered coffee, Butter, Margarine, Vegemite, Marmalade and Jam spreads. The toasters worked well. Paper serviettes were of a thin quality, requiring several for any sort of spill protection. Tables were bare with no paper or cloth covering. Daily Telegraph newspapers were available to read.
