I travel a fair bit for work with a lot going through Mudgee. So I thought I would post some suggestions for people looking for accommodation and food based on experiences.
Perry Street Hotel - Really nice boutique accommodation and not badly priced.
Motel Ningana - Standard country motel rooms but they do have terrace houses opposite that you can call about, some of which can sleep up to 8 People. Street parking but some have 1 parking spot at the rear. Wouldn't be bad for bigger groups or families.
Soldiers Motel - Standard country motel rooms but nice owners.
The Horatio Suites & Motel - Nice accommodation but a bit further from the action compared to the others which are in the dead centre of town.
Food & Coffee:
Lawson Park Hotel - Good country pub meals with a huge selection on offer. One of the bigger pubs in town and also the closest to the stadium, wouldn't be surprised if this is where a get together is held due to its proximity and the fact it is quite large.
Kellys Irish Pub - Typical Irish pub, about 2 blocks back into town from the Lawson Park Hotel. Only ever had a drink here so don't know about the food.
Mudgee Brewery - Love the food here but is more on the expensive side. Mostly only server their beers on tap with some in the fridge but for the beer tasters out there I would highly recommend this small Micro Brewery.
The Quick Brown Fox - Always stop here for morning coffees when passing by, also do good Bacon & Egg Rolls but not on the cheap side.
Woolpack Hotel - Standard Country pub from memory, about 1 block back into town from the Lawson Park Hotel. Only ever had a drink here so don't know about the food. some will probably go here for the name alone and memories.
The Wineglass - Never been here personally but recommended by my parents.
At this stage, I've got accommodation booked and will most likely be a +2.
I wouldn't be surprised if they bus the players back to Bathurst to stay at the Rydges @ Mount Panorama.
