My partner and I stayed here on Sun 10/3/14. It is on the highway 1km or so before the town. We were driving Sydney to Adelaide and this is a good half way point. It was quiet being a sunday but the rooms were comfy, clean, staff friendly, and hassell free, the light blocking curtains were good. We had a room opposite the road but it didnt keep us up, after 8 hours of driving we had no probs sleeping. Would of been nice to try the restaurant but it was closed for the night but overall very good

Room Tip: Eating options in Hay are pretty dismal so eat at the restaurant if possible.

While a very fascinating & historic area, the Hay Plains are very flat and extensive. February temperatures can be high and Hay is pretty well at the end of a days drive from Adelaide, east. We arrived late afternoon and had some time to check out the accomodation with the most highly rated full.
Bishop's Lodge was not our first choice because it faces the highway but looked so obviously clean and new we decided to take a punt. The rooms are very modern, spotlessly clean and very good value. The road noise was minor and the beds delightful.
We chose to try out the highly rated food spot but it was closed that day. We tried a couple of pubs which seemed OK but not what we were looking for. We ended back at the Bishop's Lodge. What a very pleasant surprise the meals were. Certainly one of 2 highlight meals on this trip. I thoroughly recommend this motel if ever visiting Hay, for the food alone if that be your reason.

Room Tip: I think it probably deserves No 1 spot for Hay.

We were travelling from Adelaide to Brisbane and decided on Hay as our stop over that night. We booked Bishops Lodge and were not disappointed. Lovely welcome upon arrival and the room was spotlessly clean, modern and comfortable. The bed was also very comfortable.
We really enjoyed the dining room for dinner. The food was delicious - vegetables fresh and cooked to perfection - meat very tender and full of flavour. As we were leaving early we did not have breakfast.
Even though we had a room facing the highway, it did not prove to be too noisy thankfully. The property could do with some more landscaping however I think the area has some tough temperatures to deal with. All in all, a great spot for a stop over for us.

The staff are very helpful and friendly and the service was excellent. Room was extremely clean and very comfortable had everything that we needed. Breakfast was delish as well. Would highly recommend this motel for sure.

Renovated rooms are lovely and Melissa and Chinook could not be more helpful. Room was very clean and surprisingly quiet for the location on a main highway. Pool cleanliness was the only disappointment, however it had been very windy the preceding night so this may have contributed. Food was lovely and catered for the kids well.

Room Tip: Back rooms are quieter

Stopped here on our way from Canberra to the Nullabor to rescue stepson, Nathan, who had broken down.
Melissa was wonderful. Especially when we just showed up with Nathan whose truck had just thrown a brake assembly.
As foodies we were also amazed at the food and service in the dining room which is crafted by an award-winning chef!
I certainly hope the Hay locals appreciate what they have here.

We stopped here on our way from Sydney to the Barossa Valley. The couple who run the motel were perfect hosts from start to finish. Cheerful check-in, spotless clean room, great food and service.
This motel totally exceeded our expectations and we have stayed in many places.
It certainly ticked all the boxes. Cold fresh water, cold beer and wine served in nice glasses, cheerful banter from Melissa our host who served us and great food from her husband chef was a top evening after a long drive.
