We - 2 x parents and 3 x young adult "kids" - stayed for a weekend and were greeted with a friendly intro to the well appointed rooms. 10 minutes walk to view 3 sisters, 15 mins walk to a bustling main Street with many specialist shops and a short drive to the amazing Scenic World. The cooked breakfasts are... More

Thank you for your lovely review and it was a pleasure to have your family stay with us at Shelton-Lea B&B. It was unfortunate that the people in the suite next to you had unexpected family issues and had to leave very late at night and caused more noise than normal. We always ask our guests to keep noise to... More

We booked very last minute and was pleasantly surprised at how nice this place was. We stayed in the Allambee suite with the spa bath. It was very cosy and we loved the decoration and furniture. They provided chocolates, hot chocolate, marshmallows, port, juice, milk, cookies etc and breakfast was good. The location was very good, fairly central. It was... More

We stayed for one night in August in the very spacious Amaroo Deluxe Spa Suite. It was in a great location and we had a wonderfully relaxing stay. It was the little touches, such as the complimentary port and chocolates, that made this place so special. Could not fault it! The perfect place to stay for a Blue Mountain getaway.

Spent two nights here in July, the place was absolutely amazing. There was more than enough space and the fireplace made everything pleasantly warm. Paul and Jenny were wonderful, gracious hosts. The breakfast was excellent - loved the scrambled eggs. There's plenty of good food nearby too, and Katoomba's Paragon chocolates are delicious. And after a day of bushwalking, what... More

My daughter & I stayed in the studio which was cosy, warm & welcoming. The decor was pleasant, everything was clean & the beds very comfortable. Our hosts had added thoughtful touches such as chocolates & a yummy tawny port for after dinner. The continental breakfast was more than adequate. To top it off, Jenny left some memorable hand made... More

Our car broke down the very moment we arrived in Shelton Lea. We arrived earlier than expected, the room we booked wasn't ready, but Jenny and Paul were scrambling to help with our broken down car situation. The room was perfect, with lovely touches everywhere. It's the little things that count and Jenny and Paul have got it correct at... More

We stay in the studio suite and love the privacy while still enjoying the friendly attention of our hosts. The location is perfect for a visit to Katoomba. Stay here to relax, unwind, enjoy all the mountains have to offer.
