Pleasantly surprised. It's an old hotel but has plenty of character. People complaining about this place really have first world problems. Service was excellent. Breakfast was a highlight (8am-10am is perfect timing). 3 course dinner great food and value. Hidden gem in Katoomba. Will be back.

Booked 2 nights in this hotel. Photos are misleading and the room rate is completely overpriced. Walked in the room, small room and it smells damp and mouldy. The toilet/bathroom is so small that you couldn't swing a cat in it. The wall paper is peeling off the walls and the carpet doesn't look like it has been changed ever,... More

The reviews that the rooms are fine obviously only relate to a couple of the better rooms. We gave this hotel a go and the first time the room was ok. On our second and third visits we saw more of the "real"place and more of the management style which is friendly but after successive visits you hear the manager... More

We stayed here without alot of information on the venue - price and location determined our stay. My partner and i were very impressed with the hotel and the staff, the highlights of the stay where most certainly the food in the restaurant, the parlor room/bar, playing chess and pool by the fire place and enjoying a wonderfully made 20's...

We attended a wedding reception at the Hotel Blue last night. The ambience is very 20's and really lovely and cosy. The food was simply beautiful and very generous portions. The outside looks a little rundown but looks can be deceiving. We had a lovely evening at our friends wedding

Very happy with the service, staff are very friendly from check in to the breakfast room. The room was clean and very nice to our surprise for a 3.5* hotel. Arrived and found the... More

We stayed at Hotel Blue for 2 days and I really found it to be a very charming place. A 1920's hotel, which at times made you feel you had stepped in time. Loved the decor of the sitting rooms whit their fire places and the old bookcases covered with old books. If you are looking for a modern hotel... More

We were disappointed that the fire in the lounge was lit very late in the afternoon . The carpet on the stairs was littered with I don't really know what it was , but it was still there when we left on the third day. I was very thankful that the curtains in the dining room did not fall down... More

Overall our stay was lovely, very friendly staff and helpful, however reception and breakfast at 8 am is a little late for us. Meal and atmosphere excellent in restaurant and breakfast great.
