44 Morrisset Street, Bathurst, 2795, Australia
most rooms are very ordinary looking . one room has built in kitchenette with washer/dryer which is the one i have stayed in. on arrival the fridge wasnt working, the freezer was though. there is no exhaust fan to clear moisture out of the bathroom. staff dont seem to do a great deal of maintanence around the units as there are alot of cobwebs on building and also a fire hydrant that has been leaking since i stayed there over 4 months ago!!
rooms are not cleaned or made up and if you need anything like towels /bathmats you have to chase up the staff if they are there.
Would be suited to someone who is not too fussy about where they stay overnight only best suited for those on a tight budget, not suitable for a week more.
Property is close to takeaway food outlets.
Unique Quality: n/a

“ST. STANISLAUS COLLEGE”
This is a Catholic country boarding and a day school for boys.
The college is the oldest Catholic Boys Boarding school in Australia. Approximately 700+ students are here from years 7 to 12, this includes 180 boarders.
The College was established in 1867. In 1889, the "vincentaans" [priests & brothers of Society of Saint Vincent de Pauls] arrived from Ireland, with the purpose of taking over the College.
In 1896, the College became the site of the 1st XRAY for medical purposes in Australia. The xray showed the location of a gunshot in a shattered hand of an ex-student.
A magnificent building.
