This is our second time at Hotel Blue. We have stayed at other hotels in the Blue Mountains before but we choose to return to Hotel Blue. There are so many things to like about this hotel: * The room we stayed in which I’ve heard is the only one of its kind in the hotel. It is a twin... More

Quaint, Comfortable with live music for entertainment - every meal. Very friendly staff and good service. If we needed to go out it's close to everything in Kat and Leura, but it's too easy to stay in the cosy atmosphere with food and drinks so easy. Old world decor is so nice and different to 'new slick'. WiFi excellent for... More

While the concept is unique and we enjoyed the live entertainment the room we stayed in was not clean enough: toilet holder hadn't been clean, gum wrap from previous guest on floor and just felt like they need to employ some room staff that actually know how to clean! Also the bed was extremely uncomfortable!! The breakfast included was a... More

The last time we stayed here one year ago, we were amazed at how homely this place felt and decided to revisit. As always management and staff were knowledgeable and attentive and the place has changed with a noticeable progress made to maintain that olde world charm (complete with live jazz), whilst improving hospitality and comfort conditions. The restaurant serves... More

Live entertainment five days a week, friendly service, caring staff, warm fire, all in a vintage style hotel. The breakfast was homely but a little bland. Rooms were cosy, tidy and had a comfortable bed.

This hotel was great for my family of four. The room was very spacious and warm. My 11 year old son commented when he woke up from his first night sleep at the hotel that this was his favorite time of day. Waking up from a very comfortable bed and looking forward to a big breakfast served at the hotel.... More

The staff were warm, friendly and seemed to really care about guests. Two roaring wood fires in the bar and lounge areas made winter evenings cosy - as did the excellent craft beers on sale! Great cooked breakfast included in the price set us up for bushwalking and mooching around antique stores each day. The room was basic, but comfortable... More

My daughter and I spent the first weekend of the Semester 1 school holidays here. We were pleasantly surprised to find that the well-priced rates also included a cooked breakfast. A lovely touch was being able to order your tea or coffee and the staff would bring it to your breakast table. Clean and tidy rooms and amazingly comfortable beds!... More

Room 8 regardless of the price do not take it. The sofa was underneath the Television which was about 12' from the floor. Even when standing you could not watch it without getting a crick in your neck. There was no where to put you cup or glass so we ended up turning the garbage upside down to use as... More

We arrived to a lovely warm fire and heard music playing we sat by the fire and participated in the fun the band was providing was a great atmosphere. I have travelled the world and must say even though the old girl is in the process of renovation the place has an atmosphere totally different to what I have experienced... More
