The place is old but it's meant to be. It's an old style hotel not a pub. It has sitting rooms and big old comfy chairs. There is a bar but only a small focus. The rooms are old but clean and in good repair. Don't expect flash and you will get good value. Breakfast is included in your rate... More

We stayed at Hotel Blue for one night as part of a girls getaway trip to the Blue Mountains. As we booked last minute it was one of the only places with remaining vacancies. After our short stay, we could see why! The receptionist was very friendly and helpful with advice about katoomba. However, the hotel is very out dated... More

I have been to Katoomba before and I accept you take a step back in time as the overall area is quaint, however, we were bitterly disappointed. When I booked I did think as it was a conference hotel and companies would be using it, there would be a degree of efficiency. The young lady on reception was very efficient... More

booked into this hotel on our way from Canberra to Sydney. In relation to other accommodation in the Blue Mountains this hotel was cheap. breakfast was included in the price. The rooms were typical old hotel rooms with an ensuite added. They were clean and tidy. We were there on a Friday night and were lucky enough to have entertainment... More

Very welcoming, friendly on arrival and really made you feel at home. Lovely large lounge are dining areas which make is hotel what it is, which is very 1920,s look and feel. My bedroom was a twin share and it was roomy, clean and comfortable for an over night stay. The bathroom needs a little TLC but I,m sure they... More

Stayed here for one night only and initially wasn't sure as the outside is definitely a bit tired. Inside is cozy and quite different. Great to see live music at night and again at breakfast. Definitely go again.

We were splendidly surprised by our special experience at this classic hotel. It had such a great ambiance, the staff was incredibly accomodating and personable, there was always wonderful live music, a great buffet breakfast and clean, comfortable, cozy rooms. It made our stay in the beautiful blue mountains that much better!

We had a brilliant weekend at Hotel Blue hiding away from the miserable Katoomba weather. The live blues and jazz music added so much to the ambiance already set by the beautiful decor and friendly staff. While we fell in love the hotel (and definitely plan to return!) it is definitely still a "work in progress" and would be much... More
