“Beautiful Bishops Court Estate- Welcome to Timeless Character and Charm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013

We want to say a big Thank you ! to Christine ( our host) from Bishop's Court Estate in Bathurst. My Colleague and I stayed there for one night in early September and it was an absolutely amazing experience - outstanding actually! Bishop's Court is a beautiful heritage house situated in the heart of Bathurst that is elegant , luxuriously appointed but importantly very homely. From the moment we stepped through the front door we were introduced to a timeless elegance and classic ambience that echoed throughout the property and it's extensive verandas and gardens. We were greeted with wonderful hospitality that is unique in this day and age. My colleague and I both agreed that it was actually the best accommodation we have ever had the good fortune to stay at. Beautifully appointed, but extremely comfortable as well. Christine is an excellent host and obviously a highly talented interior designer who clearly enjoys visitors to her estate and makes her guests feel very welcome. Christine's extensive knowledge of the history of Bishop's court and Bathurst in general makes the stay even more interesting and unique. Breakfast was lovely and relaxing in the 12 seater dining room, freshly made juices and cappuccinos flowed alongside the array of breakfast options . We found it rather hard to leave after just one night ! Thanks Again Christine for a wonderful stay in beautiful Bishop's Court with its timeless character and charm. A Must to stay! Vicki

Beautiful residence and gardens with luxurious decor. Nothing but the very best would satisfy Christine, David and their staff who made us feel so welcome and comfortable. Delicious food obviously prepared by very talented kitchen staff and Christine who has a passion for cuisine.
Would we go back - absolutely. Time of year - anytime. Reason - no reason needed except to be pampered.

Room Tip: All rooms beautifully appointed

I’d love to tell you how welcoming Christine and her team were from the moment we first contacted her about staying at Bishops Court until the moment we left.
I’d love to tell you how, without fuss, Christine made some fantastic recommendations to local attractions and wineries and found us a table at a booked out restaurant.
I’d love to tell you about the quality of the furnishings, and the attention to detail throughout Bishop’s Court.
I’d love to tell you about the amazing conversations we had in the kitchen while she skilfully demonstrated and shared her cooking techniques with her Cooking School students.
And I’d love to tell you about the amazing breakfast Christine and her team served up on Sunday morning and how she made everyone of her guests feel like they’d joined a group of their favourite friends in the dining room.
But, I won’t. Because then you’ll want to stay at the best kept secret in Bathurst, and I won’t be able to get a reservation next time.
On the other hand, if you’re like me and don’t quite understand how people could be so effusive with their accolades for Christine and her team, do yourself a favour and check out Bishop's Court. I’ve stayed at numerous B&B’s and high-end hotels throughout the years, and I’ve never found someone who manages to make you feel like part of her extended family the way Christine does.

Bishop's Court is a magnificent and tranquil place with beautiful interiors and gardens decorated to the highest standards. However, it is not only the beauty of the place but more importantly, the kindness and care shown to us by the people at Bishop's Court that made our recent stay an unforgettable experience of great joy, relaxation, excellent food, fun and friendship.

Christine and her wonderful staff greeted us warmly like old friends when we arrived. They took very good care of us by anticipating all our needs and wants and made us feel very special throughout our stay. The juices, wine and food were superb - not only in terms of taste but also in presentation.

Our group of 6 took an afternoon cooking class from Christine. I highly recommend that you do too. Christine is a fabulous teacher and shared with us a number of very helpful techniques, shortcuts and tips which we could easily use at home.

Our menu consisted of Pumpkin, Sage and Ricotta Ravioli served with a Burnt Butter and Pinenuts sauce, Pork and Veal Terrines with Cranberries and Pistachio Nuts and Chicken Ballotine with Crushed Potatoes and Leeks Served with Thyme Jus. We had them for dinner and they were absolutely delicious. We then went into the kitchen where Christine showed us how to make our dessert - Passionfruit Souffles with Grand Marnier and Raspberry Creme. We agreed that it was the best souffle, and definitely among the best desserts, we have ever had.

A very big thank you to Christine and her wonderful staff. We certainly indulged, relaxed and enjoyed ourselves tremendously. I just can't think of anything which Christine or her staff could have done better for us during our stay! We hope to return soon.

This review is written on behalf of a close friend that recently had the pleasure of experiencing all that Bishop's Court has to offer. Now this establishment has been raved about to the point where it's reviews are basically drawing you in it's doors, and yes I myself will be making my visit with a small group from Sydney. The owner Christine is most welcoming and the food is absolutely unsurpassed with a reportedly bliss atmosphere. And I quote: "an excitable gem within a dull food district".

Christine we will see you soon!

Again, the team lead by Christine have excelled. Our third visit and getting better. The character and charm of Bishops Court has never been lost in the past 3 years of our visits. When traveling to this region whether business or pleasure, I never bother looking elsewhere. In my travel experiences i have learnt to never compromise on quality. Bishops court always delivers on promise. I have no hesitation in recommending this wonderful venue. You will not leave wondering. Well done Christine.

Once again wonderful caring service at Bishops Court by Christine David & staff. It is always a pleasure to walk into an establishment and feel welcomed, and you certainly do at Bishops. The fabulous log fire which we can happily sit around in the lounge room with a glass of wine! and so inviting on a cold night, not to mention the comfy beds and real pillows!! Divine linen etc.... oh a wonderful indulgence. Thanks thanks, thanks I am coming back soon!!!!!
