Hotel has plenty of character and charm and is centrally located in katoomba. Has a couple of common rooms to relax in,a good selection of beers. The restaurant has great food. The rooms are comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful and helped make our stay a memorable one.

My husband and I have just returned with our grandson from the Blue Mountains where we celebrated his 11th birthday. Hotel Blue was a great spot to stay with pre-teen children as there is a pool table and several chess sets, while for adults there is the Parlour Bar and an open fire. The staff were incredibly friendly right from... More

Nostalgic and comfortable in a conveneint location a short walk from the Katoomba main street, adjacent to the RSL and a great coffee shop, and a slightly longer stroll to Echo Point. Some might call this old girl dated, but more I think would call her charming. I liked the open fire, net pocketed pool table in the lounge, and... More

A relaxing oldie worldie style hotel/motel the blue gave us the feeling of being comfortable and well looked after. Almost like staying with your oldest and dearest family friends or so. The staff and other guests all seemed happy, which means you enjoy it even more. And you are right in the middle of everything in Katoomba. The setting is... More

We first stayed at Hotel Blue in June this year and were greeted by friendly staff. Our room with double bed was warm and comfortable. We enjoyed the "olde world" atmosphere and while some areas are probably in the process of renovation, the dining room has been renewed and the bar there and light fittings are well presented. On site... More

Booked this place as all of blue mountains was totally packed. Was the only place to accommodate my husband, 22 mth old son and I with a king size bed. Hotel is dated and needs a Reno. Our room was standard, bed was good but the bathroom was terrible and had no mirror. The television had really bad reception so... More

Having just stayed at Hotel Blue first weekend in July 2014 and having read the adjacent comments I am encouraged to add this new advice. Yes the premises are very old and worn, however I must say my wife and I did not mind. We stayed for two nights with seven friends and had a great time. I think there... More

This hotel is disappointing and desperately needs new decor. Everything seems tired and old. It would be possible to have new décor and still retain the 1920s theme - it doesn't have to actually be from the 1920s!. It could also benefit from better heating in the rooms. One of the big bug bears was cold food. Breakfast was included... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Blue is your perfect home base in the Blue Mountains. After a day spent discovering all the Mountains have to offer, return to our Guest Lounge and bask in front of the open log fire, enjoy a game of pool or cards, or unwind in our INDOOR SWIMMING POOL & HEATED SPA. Refresh yourself with a relaxing drink in our intimate PARLOUR BAR, featuring a wide selection of beers, wines and spirits, and particularly showcasing the produce of regional wineries and breweries. Our elegant in-house SISTERS BLUE RESTAURANT offers fine modern Australian cuisine, with an ever-evolving menu, while our vibrant street-side CAFE 88 is a great place for a relaxing cup of coffee. Allow yourself to step back into yesteryear, amidst the rich art-deco style furnishings. The ornate flocked wallpaper and the elaborate chandeliers capture the essence of a bygone era, celebrating the Hotel’s 1920s heritage. CONVENIENTLY SITUATED half-way between the centre of Katoomba and the world-famous Three Sisters, Hotel Blue is the perfect base from which to explore Katoomba and soak up the majestic beauty of the Mountains. No matter where you venture, Hotel Blue won’t be far away, being only five minutes’ walk from Katoomba’s central shopping and dining district, and only ten minutes’ stroll from Echo Point’s World Heritage-listed views of the iconic Three Sisters and the impossibly blue Jamison Valley. At the end of the evening, our comfortable GUEST ROOMS await you, each equipped with a private en-suite, AUSTAR television, in-room heating, bar fridge and tea/coffee-making facilities. WiFi access is also available throughout Guest Rooms and Hotel public areas. ... more   less
