There was a jazz band in the evening and 2 lovely people singing at breakfast. The food in the evening and also breakfast was presented beautifully. I thank you very much for a lovely... More

I urge anyone to read the negative reviews before booking this hotel. I have never written a negative review before but for this situation, it was needed. To say that our experience was terrible is an understatement. Our group had booked in 2 rooms for 2pm check- in. When we arrived at 6pm, they informed us that one of the... More

Hotel Blue will not honour any "agreement" that is met under the duress of blackmail. The customer who wrote the above review unfortunately had to wait 20 minutes (not an hour) for his room, which at the time was being cleaned. Contrary to what this customer has written, the duty manager apologised sincerely to the customer for the delay and... More

We have just returned home after spending 3 wonderful nights at Hotel Blue. The hotel retains its yesteryear era and takes you back in time with the exquisite furnishings and décor. As soon as we walked in the front door we were greeted by Louise, what a delight she is. We did not get a chance to dine in the... More

Would suit budget traveller as rooms did not have all mod cons but were certainly comfortable. Being cold in May the room was warm. Shower was little basic and it would have ben nice to have a bit more... 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

A cold snap in the mountains of Katoomba made me wish for a nice Hotel with a good large fire to snuggle up to, a good meal and be able tog go to my room without having to get in my car. My search was not fruitful until unfortunately the next day when I discovered the Blue Hotel. This Hotel... More

Quite an experience at this quirky old fashioned hotel. Staff are young, enthusiastic, and offer good service. Our room was small and basic, but with a very comfortable bed. The hotel has meandering hallways with very comfortable common areas. Lounge was very nice with live music, the restaurant provided a delicious set menu for our "Murder Mystery Night". A full...
