“Bathurst Surprise”
Reviewed 13 September 2013

Enjoyed an overnight stay at this great hotel. Service was excellent from the time we arrived. Staff were friendly and attentive. The room was spotless and right on the track which was amazing. The shared balconies were a little disconcerting at first as people wandered by our window a couple of times but no-one disturbed us once it was dark. The food at the restaurant was fantastic and the service was excellent. Our Sunday sleep-in was shattered by the fire alarm going off but staff were excellent in keeping us informed and letting us know it was just a false alarm. If you get the chance, walk around the track in the morning and enjoy the kangaroos and black cockatoos. After only one night we felt significantly refreshed after our stay.

Great place for a restful country break for a large part of the year, 50 odd weeks anyway. Unless you like car racing as well then it would be 52 weeks as you would be right where the Bathurst 1000 and 12 hour races are held annually and just to experience this, walk around the track, its a big walk of 6.3 klm's and rises something like 1000 meters so a steep climb up and down, but with a glorious vista of the Bathurst skyline.
Room featured a spar bath and cooking facilities.

Hi Greg N, thank you for taking the time to review the hotel. Just for trivia's sake, it is a 6.2km walk, and about a 175m rise and fall up around the Mountain; still definitely a very serious walk but worth it for the view as you have said. Great to read that you enjoyed your break in the region, I hope the experience at the hotel helped along with the country air.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel in the future.

Kind Regards,
Andrew

Would have to be the best Rydges we have stayed at. The location is great with all rooms overlooking the track. From the moment we arrived we were greeted by friendly staff. The meals in the restaurant were fantastic. Great place to stay and would definitely return.

Good country hospitality and comfortable rooms. Had a room with a kitchenette that was modern and well equipped. Also had a nice meal in the restaurant. Nice part of town - right on the racetrack. Would recommend to business travellers.

Whilst staying at Bathurst recently we chose to stay at Rydges after joinging the member rewards program online.
Our stay was very comfortable and we were upgraded upon arrival by very helpful reception staff.
Our room was very large (king studio) and was very clean with ha large balcony overlooking Mt Panaroma.

Breakfast was a little disappointing - staff didn't seem welcoming on arrival and there was no variation to the hot buffet over 3 mornings at all.

Otherwise, we dined in the restauarant one night and had a fabulous meal that was of a high standard as was the service.

Loved our room. Modern studio with kitchenette, comfy lounge, big Telly and spa bath. The view over the mount panorama race track was pretty cool too. The bed was huge and comfy. I can't think of any real negatives.

Our stay at ridges mount panorama was great.
We got up for an early morning walk of mount panorama race track before coming back to the hotel for a delicious breakfast .
The walk was just over 6km.
The rooms all look over the race track out in the country.
The restaurant was a good place for dinner too.
