“Great Value/Excellent Service”

5 stars to Wendy at reception for her lovely welcome and the best Gin & Tonic served in a Long glass. Refurbished room was a good size very comfortable and clean and quiet. Continental Breakfast more than enough and staff very friendly and pleasant. Walking distance to shops and restaurants. Would definitely return when staying in Bathurst.

“Excellent value”

Stayed in the family 6 .had a great stay, contemporary fit outs , clean and lots of space for a big family. Well thought threw and a good breakfast with good management. Wouldn’t hesitate to stay again.thankyou.

“Value for money”

We only stayed one night unfortunately. We will most certainly return if we ever need to go to Bathurst again. Executive king room was great, well appointed and certainly worth the money.

“Executive Suite”

We chose this hotel as it was walking distance from the venue of the function we attended in Bathurst. We stayed in the refurbished executive king suite and could not fault it. Separate bedroom, full size fridge, extra large living area with a table and chairs plus 2 sofas.. Large TV in the living room with a small tv in the bedroom. Pity we could only stay for one night. Breakfast was basic continental but everything was very fresh and clean.

“Clean. Friendly good value”

Good service. Quiet. Friendly. Good value recomended for a relaxing enjoyable stay. The gentleman in the reception was very helpful. All facilities available. We had two rooms both were very clean and well service. It is situated close to all attractions around Bathurst

“Very happy”

We were more than happy with our stay here. Rooms were clean and fresh and the continental breakfasts were delicious. Only thing we missed was the cooked breakie which is not supplied on weekends. Location was very handy also, right near the city centre.

“Governnor Macquarie Motor Inn – definitely will be back”

Brief stop in Bathurst and really enjoyed staying here. From check-in to check-out was great. Will definitely be back. Central enough to walk into town. Budget to reasonable priced rooms. Loved the dispensers in the shower – very handy. A great motel to stay in. Will definitely be letting people know about this one.

“Would stay again”

Very clean, comfortable beds. Newly renovated family room was tastefully decorated. Liked the idea of supplying guests with soap and shampoo via the dispensers. Good location and great friendly service. Very professional reception staff. Loved the continental breakfast in the excellent onsite restaurant. Would highly recommend.


Great stopover location or base to explore Yass Valley area. Stayed a night before travelling to Temora Aviation Museum. Friendly efficient service. Clean modern refurbished room. Excellent onsite restaurant. Will definitely stay again.

“Nice place with a friendly staff”

Good location, 5 mins walk from the centre of Bathurst. At the same time it is quite area. Helpful and friendly reception. Stayed just for a night, bed is comfy. I would definitely recommend this place. Cheers

“Excellent family room”

We stayed for one night in a recently refurbished family room (37). From start to finish our stay was excellent. A warm, friendly greeting at the desk. A very nice, clean room. Unfortunate that we were only here for one night. We would happily have stayed here longer.

The breakfast was also top class. We would gladly stay in this motel again.

“Last minute stopover”

Staff were very accommodating for a last minute stopover, organising key for a late arrival and placing breakfast in our room that night to allow for an early getaway. Room clean and comfortable and affordable.

“Football Trip”

Stayed with a group of young footballers and their families. We booked about 15 rooms. Basic accomodation and property but just fine for our purpose. Laundry onsite to wash the muddy kits. Boys refreshed in pool at end of day. Staff very accommodating and opened breakfast early to fit our early morning draw. Will stay again.

“Excellent for an overnight”

A very good location plus a comfortable room and a continental breakfast included made this motel very affordable. Would recommend it to anyone looking for an overnight stay close to the city centre and eateries.

“Comfortable and affordable”

Close to town centre, quiet part of town, easy check in/out, good pressure in the shower, comfortable bed and clean room. All basic requirements (tea coffee kettle toaster etc) in room. Easy walking distance to town centre adjacent a lovely park.

“what a lovely surprise!”

Such a great location – away from main road & traffic but still very close to centre of town. I was given an upgrade from double to queen on arrival by a very helpful fellow at reception, even though it was nearly 9:30pm. The room was nicely decorated, very clean & the lovely surprise : the bed WONderfully comfortable!

Due to the nature of my visit, I had cause to make very many special requests (I was probably a bit of a nuisance), but was treated with utmost repect & consideration & all my requests were fulfilled. I would not consider staying anywhere else in Bathurst in the future & would highly recommend it to anyone!

“Quite Comfortable and Affordable Motel”

An excellent motel, just off the highway, yet walkng distance to the centre of town.We stayed in a family room it was newly renovated roomy and the beds were very comfortable. The shower head was amazing super sized. The staff and owner were very pleasant and helpful.I can recommend this motel to anyone wanting to stay in Bathurst, and would not hesitate in staying there again.

“Friendly, Comfortable & Great Value”

We arrived late on a Friday night with no booking………no problems, a clean and comfortable room at a very good price that included breakfast. Very happy travellers!

Staff great, happy to help. Would highly recommend a stay.

“Great quiet & affordable motel”

An excellent value motel, quiet, just off the main road & yet still in the centre of town. Rooms very comfortable & clean, great service and really helpful staff. Would easily recommend for anyone wanting to stay in Bathurst.

“Family week at Bathurst”

We have stayed at this motel for the Bathurst race weekend for the last 2 years. The second year we were in a fully renovated family room which is second to none. Absolutely beautiful. This room is a great size for a family of 5. The staff are so welcoming and cannot do enough for you. The owners make you feel like you are part of their family. Buffet breakfast was a great way to start the day. We highly this motel to anyone. It is in a great location ,a block from the main street, yet there is no noise from traffic.

“Great value for money”

Motel extremely well located just off main road and 2 minutes walk from town in quiet side street with ample off street parking. Spacious room with good facilities. Excellent light breakfast with plenty of options included in the room rate in attractive breakfast room with fire and comfortable seating. Very good value for money. Would definitely stay again if only for the breakfast.

“Great place for short stay”

Our motel room had been recently renovated, and was very modern and well appointed. Beds were very comfortable and rooms well maintained. and ofcourse being recently renovated meant it didn’t have that typical motel room smell. I would be happy to stop over there again.

“Inexpensive and pleasant place to stay.”

We stayed here for a night on a recent trip to Melbourne and it was fine for a stopover after a very long day (although a longer stay would have been nice). The room had been recently refurbished and it was very welcoming…clean and warm with a very comfy bed.

I especially want to make mention of the extremely pleasant and helpful staff; reception can make or break a stay and in this case they made it.

I’d happily recommend The Governor Macquarie.

“A very comfortable stay”

We were in Bathurst for the Bathurst 1000 race and staying at the Governor Macquarie was part of our tour. Great location – one street off the end of William Street and a very easy walk into the main street of town which offers heaps of food choices and Woolworths and Coles. We didn’t hear any road noise and our room was up towards the highway.

The room we had (25) was very comfortable and looked like it hadn’t long be up-dated. Room was spotless, beds comfortable, best shower I have ever had in a motel. Rooms serviced every day. As part of the package a buffet breakfast was included and this was also very nice and in a lovely room. The owners also changed the breakfast times to suit our bus pick up which was wonderful. Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful.

A lovely, centrally located Motor Inn and would definitely stay there again.


Great location,friendly staff,tiny rooms.Good excellent value for money with breakfast included.Very close to all facilities,good restaurants,service stations,supermarkets etc all just across the road.Very close to main road in and out of town but surprisingly very quiet.Hardly any night noise.

“Surprise 80th birthday party for my mum”

Hi George & Wendy – owners of the Hotel and Luke the organiser master.

I wanted a venue that was easy to get to, plenty of parking for guests and central in the township of Bathurst and most importantly easy access for my mum as I was planning a surprise 80th birthday for my mum.

Luke – after many emails and phone calls we got the details right. You were such a pleasure to deal with and nothing was too hard and your patience was fantastic.
Wendy – the have you thought about this, have you got that, what about this? Thank you. We did not forget anything. You helped me so much with menu, alcohol, how much will each person eat or drink!
George – You and Luke ran around us on the night and nothing was a bother. George you were the master of disguises to get mum into the venue and she did not have a clue.

Lastly I live in Newman in WA and all of this was organised through emails, facebook, texts, ringing home numbers and asking people to contact people for me, 54 people joined my mum for a great evening of laughs, great music (Chris from Bianca Disco) great food and a great venue.

Thank you the Governor Macquarie Motor Inn for helping me to surprise the living daylights out of my mum and hosting a great event.

“Great motel”

Recently stayed one night at Governor Macquarie Motor Inn. It was a top motel, service from front desk receptionist couldn’t have been better. He told us what was available, showed us through the available rooms and directed us to options for dinner.

Our room was basic as we chose the budget option, but large with queen bed, sofa, table and chairs, flat screen tv, reverse cycle air conditioner, clock radio, fridge, cutlery, crockery, glasses etc.

The motel is off the main road with off-street parking and is very quiet. Just a walk across the street and up one block to find lots of places to eat or fast food cafes next door.

The continental breakfast was an added bonus and very nice as was free wifi.

I’ll definitely stop here next time.

“Governor Macquarie Inn”

Our tour members stay here on our Road to Bathurst Tour. It’s good value and conveniently located. Rooms are comfortable and the continental breakfast quite filling. Staff are polite and helpful. We will continue to patronise this inn.

“Excellent accommodation for for a 3 star motel!”

Coming from sydney, my family of 5 stayed overnight for our sons soccer game. We weren’t expecting much from this place especially because it was a great price, but as we entered our newly renovated, heated room we were delighted. Honestly have stayed in 5 star hotels that were not as good as this. All modern amenities, roomy space, comfortable bedding and matteress ( sad I forgot to use the heated bedding!) large shower, above all very clean!! Great central location off the highway. Nice free buffet breakfast in a lovely room with a fireplace and tv lounge. Lovely staff. Free wifi so the kids were happy. Overall a very comfortable overnight stay with all that we needed. Ask for a renovated room , our room was 36.

“first rate”

Our Delux Twin Room was spacious, spotless and warm ( especially appreciated the extras in bathroom.) Contintental breakfast was good. Staff were very helpful and friendly.

The motel is just off the highway so the room was quiet.

“Good location & free Wi-Fi”

The Governor Macquarie was very comfortable & in a good location. It was close to restaurants & shops but off the main road, so was very quiet. Staff were very friendly, efficient & accommodating. Complimentary Wi-Fi was a bonus.
