We were in Lithgow for a sporting event and stayed at the Bushman's for 3 nights. The room was immaculate and perfect for our needs. Being winter the heater kept the room nice and warm and the shower was always hot! The food at the restaurant was wholesome and delicious. The staff were great and very helpful. Knowing we had a late game and would be back as the kitchen was closing, we were able to pre-order room service and it was delivered fresh and hot when we got back in.

Go elsewhere.... After tentatively holding rooms in this hotel for an upcoming wedding, Covid hit and we unfortunately had to postpone. We kept in brief contact, and had received confirmation before the new owners took over the motel that our booking will still remain as previously discussed and agreed. I rang the motel today to again confirm this, and the owner picked up the phone. He had no recollection of agreeing to hold rooms, despite the email thread stating otherwise... after trying to explain the situation and what was agreed, the owner was more concerned about the loss of money if the wedding guests decided not to book. I understood, and asked if perhaps we could book half of the motel instead.. also stating we had hired the local bus company to transport our guests from this hotel (and another close by as not enough rooms individually) to the wedding. He was not willing to budge and made it explicitly clear that the loss of profit is his biggest concern. Despite me trying to come to an amicable resolution (considering they had agreed to tentatively hold rooms for us, and then completely denied this)- the owner was rude, unprofessional and extremely arrogant. He abruptly raised his voice and stated "well give me your credit card, and you can pay for all the rooms if you want them held". I said that just isn't financially possible unfortunately. I would definitely NOT recommend this motel to my family and friends, and even those brides, grooms and their guests wanting to tie the knot in the Blue Mountains. You are just a number and a dollar sign to the owners. Save yourself the stress, and go elsewhere.

Good Afternoon Chantell WOW ! The last correspondence I can find was from yourself being sent on the 27th August 2020 to the previous managers stating you would get back to them with numbers and the office girl querying the date as it was a Tuesday .Your booking wasn't even in the computer. The Manger you spoke to had no recollection of agreeing to hold the rooms as it was not HIM that agreed to do it. It is not the practice of this motel to "hold" rooms. When a room is booked, each booking requires a credit card to hold the rooms. (no matter how many rooms are booked) The Manager wasn't rude as I heard the phone call and he stated if you wanted to "hold the rooms a credit card was required to secure them. I would think also if you were aware that new managers were coming in you would have rung them to ensure your booking was in the computer. It has been 9 months since we have taken over and this is the first time we have heard from you (June! ) If you had rung we could have explained our policy. Most weddings hire a bus for pickup from all the motels where there guest are staying that's for the guests convenience. We have had many successful Wedding Parties and guests stay here and that is because they choose to keep in touch with us and we them so any changes can be dealt with straight away.

This is a great place to stay, the rooms have had a recent update and are very clean. Bathroom was excellent with nice hot water and good pressure and there was also soap, shampoo/conditioner, hand cream and shave cream dispensers. And very large bath towels. The bed was very comfortable with clean white sheets. I arrived very late and it was a welcome surprise to have the air conditioner on making the room nice and warm on a cold night, I very much appreciated arriving to a warm room, well done. It's the little things that make a great impression and know that this place will be top of my list the next time I'm in the Lithgow area.
