More about Bourke Riverside Motel

More about Bourke Riverside Motel

Bourke Riverside Motel is just a short stroll to the heart of Bourke’s shopping area which includes cafes, restaurants, and the historic paddle steamer wharf and riverside walk. Originally created from the 135-year old Telegraph Hotel, the now restored and refurbished hotel offers unique outback accommodation across 3 sites - Heritage, Priest’s House, and the Riverside Cottage for groups.

They have beautiful and unique accommodation, from modern to heritage, along with secure off-street parking. Providing a choice of accommodation, they can cater for the needs of all traveler’s and families. Motorbike and car groups are the specialty with complete video security.

They are the only Darling River frontage motel in the Bourke township and offer a picturesque, secure, and quiet stay away from the highway! Set on more than 2 acres of spacious shady grounds, the beautiful gardens have won numerous awards, culminating in winning Bourke and district Grand Champion Garden many times since 2002.

A Pleasant Stay”

The room was comfortable for our two night stay and the staff most helpful and courteous regarding our accommodation and visit to Bourke as we had never been there before. The history of Bourke and this establishment was of great interest to us. We would stay again. We also enjoyed their recommendation of Poetry on a Plate at the Kidman's Camp, as well as other food options.

Great place to stay in Bourke”

Comfortable beds, clean rooms, ambience

We booked this hotel on-line without knowing much about either it or Bourke. Both were a pleasant surprise. The hotel is on the Darling River and is made up of historic buildings in lovely gardens. We stayed across the road at the old Catholic Rectory which was a lovely old residence with a wide veranda and large rooms. The room was very comfortable and nice and clean.

Absolutely lovely, and so comfortable. For being so far in the middle of New South Wales outback, it was an oasis and the staff were so nice and genuine. My room was stunning, I went back in time. Thank you, for the best experience in Bourke.

Excellent, great value, and not what you might expect”

We were allocated a "standard" room. Very comfy kingsized bed and spacious room. This motel would score a 10 except for two things: 1. An over zealous use of synthetically fragranced air freshener. Some people are very sensitive to this 2. If you are given room 21, 22, or 23, ask if the neighbours are partying again before you move in.

Fantastic stopover! ”

We stopped for the night here after a 12 car journey with 3 kids in the back (don’t try this at home). It was perfect! The hosts couldn’t have been more welcoming, they even turned the air con on in our cottage (42 degree day) for our arrival. This was the first hotel to do such a thing on our 6000km journey. The deluxe family suite was beautiful - luxurious king size bed & linen was our favourite. We headed straight for the pool and spent the evening there, enjoying take away from the local poolside as the kids swam. Didn’t hear a peep all night from anyone despite many people staying after an afternoon at the local pub for a funeral, fantastic night sleep, and a warm farewell from our hosts. Highly recommend, fantastic value for money, couldn’t have asked for more! Thanks very much :)

Loved this place. Loved the character, history and location on the river. Lovely friendly, fun and informative owners. Thanks for the bakery tip - cultural experience with a good double shop latte. We'll be back in Summer for a red dirt experience and a swim in the pool. Thanks for your hospitality.

It’s unclear from the website what rooms you’re getting when you book. I didn’t realise that I’d be placed in another stand-alone building opposite the one that appears on the website. It was perfectly comfortable and clean but I felt quite isolated. And given the gates are locked at 9pm, a little apprehensive. Also, the internet didn’t work. But the managers were very pleasant.
