Had three nights here in Katoomba. We had the Amaroo spa suite, which was particularly spacious, a great big comfortable bed and lovely spa bath after a day's walking. The only down side was there being nowhere to sit outside in the sun for this room. There was a table and chairs on the balcony just outside the room but... More

We stayed at the Shelton-Lea for a long weekend in January during our recent holiday in Australia. This B and B really does live up to its 5 star rating. We stayed in the Bakana Suite which is very comfortable and retains many of the period features of the 1930s property. There were lots of nice touches which make this... More

The owners were very welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. They made every effort to provide a home from home, including little touches like home made pancakes for afternoon tea. The walks in this area are wonderful, so much to see ! Breakfast was provided in your private accommodation and you have your own fridge and tv - we even... More

My husband and I stayed in the studio room for 2 nights which has it's own entrance so not to disturb anyone if you come home late at night. The hosts, Jenny and Paul, have thought of all the comforts you may need and breakfast was great. It is a lovely home and a beautiful area with a short walk... More

Jenny is delightful and her B & B is really nice. We had a room with a sitting room and a spa bath which was a treat. The bed and linens are wonderful. It is private here and you fix your own breakfast that she provides in the fridge. If you are staying longer you could fix lunch as well.

This B&B has it all! Friendly, helpful hosts, Jenny & Paul. Beautifully decorated and comfortable suites. Delicious, made-to-order breakfasts, delivered to your room when you want. Great location, a 10-15 minute walk to Scenic World and Echo Point lookout, as well as to downtown Katoomba. A very relaxing, romantic place to stay in the Blue Mountains.

I stayed here for New Years and from the moment I arrived, I felt as though I was staying with old friends. Jenny and Paul are lovely hosts, not intrusive but helpful with any queries. The rooms were beautifully furnished and the bed comfortable. There was a little deck off the sitting room, where I was able to enjoy breakfast.... More

Paul and I appreciate your lovely comments and we are glad you enjoyed our hospitality.
