We found the room comfortable and clean but had issues with the tv.
The remote control didn't work properly.
When we finally got help the manager told us the in house movies were not available due to a system changeover. She did apologise and gave us a bottle of wine. We noticed that the remote control definitely didn't work properly apart from the missing movies. Apart from this we enjoyed our stay.
Staff were friendly, rooms were very clean and the toilet was even sanitised.
Check in and out were hassle free. There's option to have breakfast delivered to be room and a steakhouse is located right by the inn's entrance so guests will NOT go hungry!
This grand old hotel provided a traditional room for my one night stay. I arrived late so ate at a nearby pizza restaurant.
I had breakfast from the buffet which was more than sufficient, full cooked breakfast could be ordered at an extra charge. The staff on the Reception and in the Dining Room at breakfast were most polite and efficient and welcoming.
My day was booked for an 8.00am start just along Katoomba Street so I didn't have far to go. I didn't return to the hotel before making my way back on the train to Sydney.
There was an added bonus in that my travel to and from Sydney on the Friday/Saturday evenings was free on my opal card because I'd completed four days of commuter travel already that week.
Accomodation had a good balance of the charm of a country cottage mixed with luxuries of a nice hotel. Very convenient location- only 5 minute drive to Three Sisters Lookout and Scenic World or to Leura. Great views in the dining room for breakfast. Warm in winter with many gas fires around the hotel. Spa bath and fireplace in hotel room very luxurious. Staff friendly and plenty of parking spots if you want to drive.
The one bedroom apartment offered the convenience and privacy we were after. Leura is a peaceful town, right in the mountains. A car is the best way to get around, with underground onsite parking at no additional cost, it's ideal. A very enjoyable stay.
The small artistic town of Katoomba glows in its quirk, and is only a stone's throw from the famous Echo Point, which offers a stellar view of the mountainous horizon and the famous rock formation known as the Three Sisters. Affluent neighboring town Leura provides picturesque English-style gardens, which thrive during the Leura Garden Festival every October.
