Excellent location being a short walk from the 3 sisters. The great service and friendly tips offered at the front desk helped us plan our stay in Katoomba. The room was modern with comfy beds and a great little bar fridge that came in very handy. Would recommend the 3 explorers motel

Only spent one night at this motel but the staff were very helpful and informative. Our rooms were very clean and comfortable and had a fridge and coffee making facilities. Great heated towel rail and huge spa bath. Very good location and easy parking.

Just five minutes walk from the Three Sisters Echo Point viewing point. Spa bath nice after a day out exploring. Friendly and informative staff. Five minute drive to town centre for shops and restaurants although a couple of restaurants nearby. Room clean and comfortable

good location for sifghtseeing Echo point, room is average and overprized to other motels we have been in Australia. The town is only five minutes drive by car and you can find a lot of restaurants.I think next time we would choose another motel

Title says it all really, smallish clean room, friendly management. Close to echo point but a long trek uphill to town for dinner. Go there for the location , recommend seeing three sisters with the floodlights on.

This Motel is in a great location for sightseeing at Echo point and Scenic World. We had a very comfortable bed and a nice clean room. The friendly manager at the office was very helpful with local knowledge that was much appreciated.

The staff were extremely helpful; the place was clean and fresh with the room being checked daily. The bed was very comfortable - all in all an excellent place to stay while we did the "tourist" thing :)
