    The Location and the cleanliness of the motel. The rooms was simple and we got a room that had way more beds then we needed, which we were surprised. Would definitely recommend this place to others. The rooms were new and the decor was simple with all the the necessities including a microwave, iron, fridge. The staff was accommodating as the free breakfast is catered for meat eaters and they substituted it for me as I am vegetarian. Would definitely go back there.

    Was unable to get the wi-fi to work, as we were staying for one night only we didn't bother to ask the staff.

    The gentleman was extremely nice. Free WiFi was offered.

    The bathroom is cold. We really feel the price is too high for what is offered. We paid 145 dollars per night. For that rate we experienced much more luxurious and modern hotel rooms around Australia. Still, the location is excellent.

  • Couple

    It's location. Close proximity to shops, attractions, and train station.

    There was a heater in the room but it did not reach the bathroom. It was cold. The water in the shower would also change between hot and cold without you touching it.

    Excellent location in the Blue Mountains. Very gracious host - stayed late to accomodate our late check-in. The room had everything we needed, was spacious for a family (and had a table and chairs for breakfast) We appreciated the tea, coffee and refrigerator). It was basic, but very clean and comfortable. I think it was good value. Probably best for someone with a car, as we needed to take a cab to get to the train and to town.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    Close enough to the town. Walking distance to echo point but a car is needed to get around to other tourist places. Motel very good well appointed rooms. Good value for money! Some advise...it very cold at night but not in the rooms( they are very warm) if you want to watch movies you need to take your own dvd player! Which we did so it was cool!

  • Couple
    8.2

    Good location.

    Noisy. Could hear the neighbors. Loud banging when they used their doors

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Clean, good size rooms. Good facilities including digital tv.

    It was cold (being July) and it took awhile for the room to wam up - it would be advisable if you could call through an ask the staff to switch on the a/c to warm the room before you arrived.

  • Group of friends
    6.6

    Just far enough away from the city centre. Quiet. Close to 3 sisters.Flat and good area for walking. Front desk staff welcoming and informative and helpful.

    Room dark because of stairs outside window. We felt it was overpriced for what was offered.

  • Couple
    9.2

    comfy, near the trail heads

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    It was very convenient to the centre of Katoomba, good walking distance and the taxi service was also reliable.

    Due to the freezing cold weather on the weekend we stayed, the room took ages to warm up when we arrived and it was difficult to keep it warm.

  • Couple
    9.6

    Huge tv in room plus jacuzzi in bathroom - very nice breakfast at a reasonable price delivered to room in the morning!

  • Family with children
    8.2

    The room was very nice, clean and moden,Location is very close (walking) to The Three Sisters

    There was no electric blankets on the kids beds,and the fan in the bath room was to strong and cold

  • Group of friends
    6.6

    Staff was nice. Room was clean. Fresh milk for your coffee and free cookies in the room.

    It's a motel. Beds and amenities are basic. It's about a 15-20 minute walk into town to any restaurants up a hill - you need to drive

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Great value and very comfortable in a central location with an easy walk to Echo Point. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Room service breakfast was excellent. Photos on the web site are a true representation of the room which is quite large.

  • Couple

    The Good:- Modern furnishings - excellent reception staff - heated beds - good tv - clean rooms - close to town and views - a worthwhile place to stay!

    The Bad:- bathroom very cold! - we had a spa room but couldn't enjoy the spa since the room was so cold. Other than that, everything just right.
