The host are fantastic. Rooms are newly appointed with modern features. Set back off the highway so it is nice and quiet. Swimming pool that was a welcome adittion in the scorching heat. Not to far out off the city centre.

Stayed here in a 2 bedroom unit for the Bathurst 12 hour. The room is comfortable and clean and was fine as all we did was sleep there. The main bed was quite hard, but the other beds seemed to be ok. The room sleeps 7 comfortably. We were very impressed with the free continental breakfast each day. The pool...

We decidedc at short notice to visit relations in Bathurst and booked the Gold Panner Motor Inn for an overnight stay because it was (a) cheap and (b) available. We didn't really expect a lot, but were pleasantly suprised when we arrived. From the main road, the Gold Panner doesn't look much. However, the rooms are very tidy and tastefully...

Very tidy rooms, recently refurbished/renovated. Bathroom was little small and sliding door did not slide so well, however this was the only thing wrong with room. Both owners were polite and welcoming, they also provided a continental breakfast included with accomodation which made for good value. Motel is easy to find, get to being just off main highway however far...

My husband was recently visiting with a car club and the group had the pleasure of staying at this motel. We frequently travel and he stated that it was one of the best he had stayed in in recent times. The service, staff and room were excellent. The room had been recently renovated, were well presented and clean and tidy...

Paid $300 per night for 5 people. Was expecting a 2br unit but instead got a 1br with two bunk beds in the lounge area sacrificing couch space. The room was very outdated with 60's decor and not the modern one who booked online. The cooking pots/pans and kettle were dirty. I would have thought the place to be worth...

My wife and I stayed overnight here. The room we were allocated was a queen deluxe with 1 queen bed and 2 singles. The manager said the room was in the newer section.
