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

We stayed for two days over a weekend and found our room very clean with great bedding, but certainly not modern or pristine, very some cracked tiles and old furniture. The breakfast included was generous and on white linen tablecloths in a classic dining room, fitting well with a B&B style. On some weekend afternoon and early evenings, the Hotel... More

As soon as we walked in we were welcomed by friendly staff. My husband, sister and two young children stayed in a family room. We visited the blue mountains for my husband to participate in the Ultra Marathon, North Face 100km. We were all anxious as this was his first Marathon so the fact that Hotel Blue made our stay...

I organised a work offsite for 45 people at Hotel Blue in Katoomba. The hotel staff were absolutely fantastic in catering to our requirements, even as they changed right up until the date of our stay. We found the hotel to be interesting and quirky, plus good value for money. We enjoyed using the conference facilities. The catering provided was... More
