“Perfectly adequate.”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

Standard ageing motel. While very clean with comfortable beds, it is starting to look tired. Especially the bathroom.

Continental breakfast was included, but it was very basic - cereal and toast. At $116, while not pricey, I don't think it was great value for money.

Interaction with staff was minimal and no-one was on hand at breakfast.

The information brochures at reception are outdated, particularly information on the roads to Hill End...caused quite a lot of inconvenience! For the record, the Turondale Road is sealed the whole way.

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.

Room Tip: Motel is currently undergoing a refurbishment. Refurbished rooms are the pick.

The room was clean and tidy. Breakfast was included and while basic was good. Staff were friendly. Normally I don't sleep so well in hotel beds but I did at the GM which shows a good level of comfort.

Service was helpful and obliging.
Value was excellent - continental breakfast included.
Room (no.31) was clean, comfy, quiet, medium-sized with lounge and table.
Breakfast was simple but more than adequate - 3 types of bread for toast, jams, 3 cereals, muesli, fruit, milk, yoghurt, juices, tea, coffee.
Close to the CBD.
First choice for me if/when I return to Bathurst.

We stayed at the Governor Macquarie Motor Inn during the Bathurst Show weekend. The first night our room was very cold and my husband nearly froze, however, we told the staff this the next morning and they were fantastic. It turns out that we had the setting in the snow flake instead of the sun! They also set the timer so it was nice and warm when we came back from a freezing day at the show. We were also told that the room was recently painted so they had a beautiful scented candle burning. This motel is in a quiet but central location with extremely helpful staff that makes this the most value for money motel in Bathurst!

We are coming back without a doubt!

Room Tip: Book ahead as this is a busy motel.

Our room at the Governor Macquarie Motor Inn was clean and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast, included in the tariff was well set out and more than adequate. The location is central and convenient, but also quiet.

The room we stayed in at Governor Macquarie Motor Inn was quite small. We have stayed in many a motel room and found this one very much on the small side as there was no room to put our suitcase, but the bathroom was quite roomy with a large bench for toiletries. We had a very comfortable bed in our room. Breakfast was included in the very reasonable price. The continental breakfast was quite satisfactory and included juice, cereal, fruit, toast, tea and coffee.
