We stayed in the motel section as we requested a quiet room with ensuite. It was a smallish, dark room with a tasteless glittery bedspread, erk!. It was clean enough and there was heating and a TV. There is inadequate parking -even on check in we couldnt park in front of our room, and by the evening had to park... More

$140 for a double private en suite room is good value in Katoomba. The rooms were clean and spacious, if a little dated. The shower was nice and hot but could have been more powerful. Big TV and good wifi. Continental breakfast included (which we didn't sample). A short walk to town which is good for the evening. Parking was... More

Were do we start? We booked 2 rooms - after being in residence for half an hour we were about to do our $250 and get in the car and flee what was an atrocious example of "hospitality". The rooms were unclean, uncomfortable, unattractive and with paper thin walls we got the luxury of hearing a man fart and sigh... More

Just stayed at this place last night and it was disappointing that we sent $160 for the night in a room with a double bed and a single and I'd rather have slept in the car. Although the room was clean enough, the bed was so soft and flat that i had to sleep in the single bed. The air-con... More

We had a budget room on the top floor with a shared bathroom. Room nice and tidy. Clean blankets and sheets. Comfy bed. Nice old style furniture giving character to the hotel. Toilet and bathroom was a bit old but all tidy and clean. There was a concert on one of the nights we were there and we didn't hear... More

Old building you can hear others in rooms around you. Shared bathrooms & no heater or aircon however electric blanket keeps you warm. Loud door with old decor throughout hotel. Free continental breakfast but had to fight for a seat as it was busy being the long weekend. This was the only room left in Katoomba I could find for... More

The money they ask for it worth every cent 10 folds: Cosy and clean room, clean and tidy bathroom, unlimited fast & free wifi and breakfast included. Friendly staff at hands, with a smile. Walking distance (5-10 min) to Katoomba centre, 10-15min walking to Three Sisters etc. Can not ask for better. Easter's weather here is always cold and rainy... More

We, my daughter and me, stayed for 2 nights at the Clarendon. We orderd for a twin room but they where occupied and then they gave us the family room. Very comfortable, clean and with good shower and toilet. They served a basic breakfast but nevertheless oke. The hotel is in a quiet area next to the towncenter and 10... More
