While most travellers would opt to stay in hotels or motels at the Blue Mountains, we stayed at Shelton-Lea B&B for one night, which was a wise decision. It is strategically located on a quiet street at 159 Lurline Street, Blue Mountains, which is about 20 minutes stroll from Katoomba train station and town. There is also a hop-on-hop-off bus...

We had the most incredible time here ... A lovely suite with a proper fireplace in the sitting room and a host of amazingly thoughtful touches.. ... Be it the port, the chocolates or the well stocked mini fridge :) We only stayed a night but wished we could have stayed longer as the location was marvelous ( could walk... More

I had a 4 night stay near the end of an Australian adventure. Loved the Shelton Lea, the room and the hosts. Great advice on tours, great breakfast. The room was extremely clean and well organized. Although it was unusually hot while I was there, the room stayed cooler than the outside temp, and there was a fan for cooling... More

We stayed in this delightful, spotless accommodation, in the front room, on the Spring Flowers weekend. As we were in a room which accommodated 3, we did not have a proper kitchenette, but there was a fridge, microwave and plenty of cutlery and crockery, only no where to wash up. Jenny and Paul were so helpful, advising us on restaurants... More

We recently stated at this B&B and although the place is lovely we had such a terrible experience. We stayed in the front room and weren't able to get any sleep. We had arrived in Sydney that morning after a mid-night flight from Perth and should have been able to sleep anywhere but the front porch light was kept on... More

We enjoyed our stay in the studio room behind the main house. The room was clean, private, comfortable & had plenty of space. It included a kitchenette, en-suite bathroom, TV & DVD player plus had parking - a home away from home! The location is quiet & not far from the 3 Sisters & town centre. The hosts were friendly...

Never judge a book by it's cover. This was the nicest B&B I have stayed in. I haven't stayed in a B&B with your own private kitchen area, no stove but has a micrwave, small fridge, cups, plates, utensils etc. We were up graded and the room was beautiful. Every little thing had been thought off. Port, chocolates, marshmallows to... More
