What a lovely B&B! Definitely my favourite out of a few we stayed on on a self guided inn to inn walking holiday, sadly we only had one night here, I'll definitely be back :) super clean with superb facilities and lots of great extra touches, not to mention a bed that made you feel like you were floating off...

We stayed in the Bakana suite which was perfect - even a fire for the cool evening although there is also central heating. Spotlessly clean and a great place to come back to after a day sightseeing. The DIY breakfast was very good and very generous. Also unexpected extras like quality biscuits and even sherry! Shelton-Lea is well located -... More

We were in the Blue Mountains area and decided to go out to Mudgee for a day. Paul from Shelton-Lea took us on his inaugural wine tour - and it was great. Well organised, interesting cellar doors and a beautiful lunch - while watching a very happy tortoise swim around us in a dam. Paul has really done his homework... More

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

Thank you for your great comments and we appreciate your support and that you enjoyed your stay with us. If the weather is warmer and in the spring and summer the balcony you refer to does enjoy the sun and there is other garden seats that are more private to enjoy the sun as well. Thank you again and we... 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
