Old world mountain charm

Posted 8-Jul-2014
Pros: Open fires and common areas were great, dining room and breakfast was excellent
Cons: Maybe a little work in the bathrooms
Location: Walk to Katoomba centre and short drive to scenic world.
The hotel is old world and fits into the mountains surrounding, if you are looking for modern rooms and bathrooms this is not for you, if you are looking for old school character you will love it. The rooms are good and the dining breakfast excellent, enjoyed the stay with the family alot.

Old hotel

Posted 10-Jun-2014
Talking to the owner you can see his vision for how he would like to develop this hotel more. It is an old Building though, so the rooms are small but comfortable. The downstairs lounge area is wonderful to sit in and play chess or pool by the open fire.

Decent

Posted 6-Jun-2014
Pleasant overall experience. Staff were nice and helpful. After we feedback that first night was cold, Chris (I think ) from the hotel responded by 'upgrading' our heater. knowledgable guy, his travel experience to Singapore definitely helps us to settle down in the hotel. Food wise - the hotel breakfast was a huge spread for us. Toast, cereal, juices and your choice of hot breakfast. We had "the lot", which included eggs, 2-3 slices of bacon, a sausage, tomato AND 1 pancake, almost everyday. Good for those who likes heavy breakfast. Points to note: Floor boards were creeky but did not pose much disturbance. Toilet was clean except for a bit of stain on one towel on first day. The hotel is located mid way between town and echo point but of a comfortable walking distance.

Old Country style hotel

Posted 26-May-2014
Pros: Communal areas and nice fire
Cons: rooms updated, particularly bathroom
Location: Within walking distance of town, close to RSL for meals.
The hotel was within walking distance of the main town and on the Hop On Hop Off bus route. The communal facilities were very good with a very nice dining area for the price included breakfast and it had a nice sitting area for socializing with a fire and bar facilities. however luggage had to be carried upstairs which is difficult for older guests and the rooms certainly needed updating. The staff were very pleasant and helpful.

Hotel not far from centre of town

Posted 17-May-2014
It would have been better if there had been a transfer in and out of town and a laundry is always needed. For older guests it is difficult to get luggage up the steps really needs a lift. Would recommend it to younger more agile guests only.

hotel blue

Posted 30-Apr-2014
Pros: spa and location
when i booked this online it gave me the option of one double and 2 single beds- this is what i requested. however, the hotel does not have this bed configuration available so this was very annoying. the hotel is also very noise- floorboards creaking as someone walks past your room and the rooms above noise resonating down.

Past its best

Posted 23-Feb-2014
Friendly staff and a reasonable breakfast could not compensate for a small, shabby room, badly in need of complete refurbishment. Disappointing and expensive for what it was.
