“Well equipped and good location”
Reviewed 25 February 2014

Stayed in a 1 Bedroom apartment. Well equipped, full kitchen. Apartment not huge, but big enough. Small outdoor area with BBQ, and good security.
Easy walk into the town centre where there are several good places to eat.
Would stay again.

Room Tip: Would try an upstairs apartment next time, as the plumbing from upstairs is audible from downstairs.

Reviewed 2 January 2014

We stayed for two nights at Encore Apartments Bathurst, and we found them to be excellent in every respect. We are a mother and daughter, so we wanted separate bedrooms, but after reading other comments here we decided to take a one bedroom plus sofa bed (which is set up in the lounge), which worked really well for us.

The apartments are modern, light, comfortable, reasonably clean and very convenient. Our unit (No. 3) was upstairs and it had a great view of the town and surrounding hills from the wide shady balcony, which was set up with tables and chairs for four people. The apartment had everything you could conceivably want in a holiday apartment.

We didn’t have a vehicle, but we wanted to explore the town, and we found that from this location we could walk everywhere (even to/from the railway station) - my mother is in her 70s, but the town isn’t large so it’s never too far to walk.

There are great gardens just one block away, including a duck pond that the kids (and adults) would enjoy. Carillion park next door to the gardens is very popular with locals as a spot to picnic or sit in the shade on a hot day. The main shopping area is about a 10 minute walk away from the apartments and there are two large supermarkets there, where you can buy groceries.

The town itself has plenty of (very popular) cafes, museums, a nice walk along the river, and gorgeous wide tree-lined streets.

The downside: the standard-size pillows were hard, but the European size pillows were OK (if that’s the only complaint then it must be pretty good!)

Room Tip: Unit 3 has a lovely view from the shady balcony.

Two of us stayed in a 1br apartment. Self contained with everything you need. Owners delightful and will personalise your stay. Heater was on when we arrived and a lovely (and cheap) continential breakfast in the fridge. 6 stars and will 'eat' any hotel within 200 klms.

Three of us stayed at Delkeith Cottage for 5 nights in April 2012. It is a very spacious character cottage, with all the modern conveniences you could want for a trip away (central heating, in particular!). Bathrooms, kitchen and laundry are all modern and well appointed, and the property is serviced each day with towels etc if you wish. The cottage is located a 10 minute walk from the centre of town in a residential area. We were in town for work, and the cottage was a good value alternative to being stuck in a hotel. The Encore Apartments hosts, Helen & Bernard, were charming and helpful.

We stayed in a 2 br apartment while travelling with our two young boys. Both bedrooms had nice queen size beds, though singles in the second bedroom might be preferable for travellers with kids. The master bedroom was spacious but all other rooms are a bit small including the lounge/dining area which we found a bit cramped.

Kitchen is modern and the entire complex is in good condition. We'd stay again.

We have stayed here a number of times over the last couple of years and have always been really pleased with it. Encore Apartments are very modern, clean and close to the city center. Helen & Bernard, who run the place, are always very helpful. You can choose to stay for just 1 night and it's never a problem. They have a selection of 1, 2 or 3 bedroom apartments. The cottage (located a few streets away) is fantastic and great for a couple of families sharing, there is plenty of room and it's beautifully decorated.

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
