“No 1 in Bathurst”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2011

Nice little apartments that are walking distance to main city centre. Well maintained with all the facilities you would require for a visit to Bathurst. It beats staying at a hotel or Motor Inn. Most couples stayed here for a wedding on the weekend and where very impressed.

Room Tip: 2 bedroom apartments I hear where a tad small compared to single bedroom

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2011

I recently had to stay in Bathurst for a week as we were passing through and a family member fell ill and was hospitalised. I was at a loss not knowing the area and what Bathurst had on offer.
I initially stayed in a "new 4 star" hotel that was nothing more than an over priced uni dorm. So I went looking for something more suitable.

I was cautious at first as the Encore website offers very little information, but I am so glad I booked to stay here. I stayed 3 nights and it was better value than every hotel I called. The apartments are near new, very well appointed and have all the comforts of home. I was able to set up a temporary home during a very stressful time. The owners were an absolute delight and very helpful.

The location is perfect, its so close to the centre of town. I would happily recommend this location to anyone looking for well priced, clean, new accommodation in a small country town that seems to charge incredibly high prices for pretty basic, outdated rooms elsewhere.

I am planning to return just to stay here again for a nice relaxing weekend in the country.

On our visit to the Supercheap 1000 we stayed in Delkeith Cottage which is owned and run by the owners of Encore Apartments. What an absolute gem! 3 bedrooms, separate living room, open plan kitchen/dining/family room, laundry, two bathrooms and 3 toilets! For a group of 6 (2 couples and two singles) it was ideal. The owners put a very comfortable bed in the living room which gave us 4 bedrooms so the two singles didn't have to share. The kitchen is state of the art and the main bathroom is to die for (spa bath!). There is even a garage with a roller door! Free Wifi too which wasn't working at first, but the owners went to no end of trouble to rectify that problem. Close to the city and close to the track and very quiet.

Apartment is a bit of a stretch, more like a hotel room with bedrooms, the last reviewer was correct this is tiny, the lounge room was way to small, kitchen was good size and bedrooms small too, bathroom tiny too. Its a bit too pricey for the location and the size but Bathurst is limited for stylish accomodation.

The "apartment" was immaculate though, looks brand new and very stylish indeed. With very small children they gave me the top floor (lots of stuff to carry with kids!) and then said to me that there are no car spaces and have to park on the street! Found that pretty ordinary.

We stayed on a Saturday night, AVOID IT on that night, we were kept awake all night but drunken idiots walking along the road from a nearby club.

The white wooden verticle blinds in the bedrooms looked great but were hopeless in blocking out any light, in between the drunks keeping us awake, the lights on the outside of the building were left on ALL night so be aware its annoying and will keep you awake.

Would I stay again? Possibly, its just a bit pricey. Another accomodation just opened so may try there next time.

Oh and if the owners read this, update your website so that the prices are available, its annoying having to ring direct.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2009

Last weekend, I stayed in a two bedroom apartment (two doubles) with my husband and 17 year old son for one night. Initially, I was frustrated that I could not find much information regarding the apartment price/seasons, exact list of facilities in the two bedroom apartment, check-in/out times, cancellation policy etc on Encore’s website, or any website for that matter, and the owners seemed impatient with my email enquiries. A couple days after making the booking, one week prior to arrival, I emailed a request for a quiet apartment and was informed by the owners that I had been already assigned an apartment (was it too late to swap it?) located on a side street and all the apartments were quiet, yet I was awoken several times through the night due to the loud yelling of people walking from town “partying” on their way home and traffic noise. On the positive side, the apartments were tastefully decorated with modern furnishings and the master bedroom was larger than average with a day bed and desk although only had a queen size bed. However, the lounge/dining room was extremely small – definitely a very tight squeeze for three adults (and we have slim bodies) with two tiny couches and a very small dining table only suitable for two adults. The kitchen was less than clean and NO DISHWASHER (unheard of in a modern two-bedroom apartment) which is probably why I had to chip the last guests’ food off the plates before I used them - YUK!! . The bathroom was adequate, but very small after inserting a washer/dryer and laundry sink in it. The parking was undercover, but a tight squeeze. At $245 per night for a maximum of four adults it might seem reasonable, but I would only recommend it for two adults with toddlers or two singles for one or two-night stays due to the shortage of space as I felt it was a premium price to pay for the facilities and the location.

The complex is small and was well suited to our purpose. Slept comfortably and atewell in preparation for a sporting event.

We had a 2 bed apartment which has a small but nicely appointed kitchen, no dishwasher and comes with real plunger coffee. It's the little things.

Negatives were the small nature of the living area of the apartment and the compact parking arrangements. It was a little difficult to get in and out but undercover is a big plus.

Positives were the apartments are well fitted out, great sleeping area and wonderful hosts. We did experience some street noise on Sat night but I would rather that than constant noise from in house guests. It would have been excellent in warm weather to eat on the balcony.

Good choice and the extra few $$ per night far outweighed by the ability to self cater and sleep in separate rooms.
