I had the opportunity of staying here earlier this month. Not having booked I pulled up at around 7pm hoping to get a room. The office was locked and a message was stuck to the glass to ring a mobile number. I rang the number and booked in and was told that there was a key in the key box...

Rooms are spacious and quiet, with the hotel about 3kms for Lithgow main street. Opt for lower numbers rather than highway facing, but noise not really a problem Plumbing needs an upgrade and can be a bit noisy but good hot water. Great steaks and fish. Rooms don't include breakfast, so worth negotiating up front. No options close by.

We found the hotel pleasant and comfortable, clean and spacious room. Our only disappointment was when we went to the reception area for breakfast in the morning to find the place locked. We called the number given and was told that we did not ordered it when we checked in so non was prepared. This is something unexpected as we...

The room was ok. It was pretty standard and not much to say. We were in room 12 and near the highway but it wasn't loud. The food was terrible. They were a bit disorganised - maybe they are new owners!

My second stay at the Bowen inn. Very clean and comfortable. Units near reception quieter than near highway. Dinner was lovely , fish and chips. Breaky eggs mushrooms and tomato. Cooked whatever you want. Good real coffee. The owners are so friendly and accommodating . Close to hospital and university where I had to go. Highly recommend.

Well we stayed at the Bowen again and once again the accommodation was first class. We ate at Settlers Restaurant and boy what a meal after a tough day at the track all we wanted was a good meal and it delivered. The salt and cracked pepper squid was a great starter. We both had Pasta and the sundried tomato...

Only stayed at this motel for one but i don't have any complaints about the room. We stayed in the Executive King Spa room. It was very modern, spacious & clean. The water pressure was very good and i liked that the bed had an electric blanket to keep you extra warm at night.

We stayed one night in an Executive Spa Room. The room was spacious, clean and well-appointed. The bed was very comfortable. It was a chilly night outside, but the reverse cycle air-conditioning kept us snug without the need for the electric blanket. The rooms have an individual parking spot right in front of the door. Our room was directly facing...

difficult to find after dark as the motel is situated off the highway and has only minimal signage. One night stay this time without using room service or the restaurant although at previous visits the restaurant was good

My partner and I had a short stay here and were pleasantly surprised by what we found. Although quite close to the busy highway, noise was minimal. The room was large, and the bed very comfortable. The spa in the bathroom was heaven, and after a full day of bush walking just what our tired bodies needed. Would highly recommend...
