  • Family with children

    Perfectly suitable for our weekend away visiting the Blue Mountains and Jenolan Caves. Right on the main highway, but we didn't hear any street noise in our room. Nothing to rave about, but clean and neat with good beds, but very dated decor. 2 single beds in one room, with fridge, tea/coffee facilities and toaster, breakfast table, TV and desk; the other room with a queen bed. Very friendly staff.

    Size of the room, friendliness of staff and quality of attached restaurant.

  • Couple

    Location was good as it was close to Katoomba town. Also to be able to park right outside your room was great to carry things to & fro your car.

    Hotel staff at the reception weren't very friendly. There was no proper greeting or even a smile we got when we checked out. I would've liked them to ask me if we had a nice stay etc. It was very noisy as the people in the next room were very loud.

  • Family with children

    Rooms were clean and comfortable.

    My stay was VERY UNCOMFORTABLE! None of the electrical outlets worked in the 2 rooms (Room 14 and 15) when we got back from dinner at around 9 PM. At that time, I had nobody to complain to and nobody to come and fix it. That meant, we had 2 rooms with no TV, we were not able to charge our mobiles and laptops, and worse of all, I was not able to sleep soundly because I am a CPAP user. Sleeping without CPAP means that I was not able to sleep at all! It also means that I am endangering my life and my family's lives (as I had to drive a long way the following day without sleep). When the reception office opened in the morning, I complained about it and the receptionist just switched on the breaker without even apologizing for the inconvenience. I should have been refunded my money! If there is no action from the hotel on this matter, I might as well dissuade my friends from staying in this hotel and egg them to tell others!

    Just what it has to be. Everything in order, clean and convenient.

    To get to the beginning of the tracks you need to walk for about 25 minutes - not too bad though.

  • Single

    The comfort of the room.

    The air con wouldn't work. The power button would turn on , but the nothing would happen.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Very helpful and friendly staff. A very adequate room.

    Laundry and wi-fi expensive. No cooking facilities (not even a microwave), but staff were happy to microwave food for us.

  • Group of friends

    Closeness to the center of the Blue Mountains

  • Older travelers
    5.4

    1. The hotel charged all the days of my stay at the time of booking instead of the first night as stated in the terms of booking and made of apology. 2. There is bad smell coming out from the air-conditioner when it is turned to heat or dry position.

  • Single
    7.4

    Friendly, helpful staff. Good restaurant nearby.

    It was farther from the train station than I realized, too far to walk with luggage.

  • Older travelers
    8.4

    Very comfortable, well set out room!

    Restaurant was a bit disappointing, phone very loud and right by our table!

  • Older travelers

    the big bed

    The TV had very limited Fox ie only some sport and news no movies etc& the water pressure in the shower was weak. Also lots of small maintenance issues ie no handle on shower door, noisy fridge etc. No information booklet explaining tv operation, local restaurants and attractions. Very over priced even though we were supposed to have a good deal! Also was pretty noisy our room was right next to road.

  • Older travelers
    4.6

    Wifi was free - shame it did't work

    Owner was not friendly at all, answered my questions with one word answers. Wifi in room 3 would only connect from car park and went off unless you sat by the door. Room was miserable!

  • Older travelers

    location - no walking access to town

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    The room was clean

    The manager was extremely unfriendly on check-in after we had travelled, if I had not paid in advance we would have gone elsewhere. We were not allowed to do a load of washing after 8pm as the laundry noise would disturb other guests, we were there at 8.15pm. There was no guest directory advising about the motel rules which we found out when we tried to use the laundry and was denied access as it is open from 7am- 8pm. The manager advised they were replacing the current directory which is why the rooms offered no information. We ar both in our late 50's and found the manager rude and far from friendly. We won't be staying there again or recommending to our large family that live in Katoomba and Blackheath.
