We stayed at Shelton-Lea for two nights and wished we could stay longer. Our hosts, Jenny and Paul, were very friendly and helpful. We stayed at The Studio, which was clean and cozy. When we arrived the heater was already on and we were welcomed into our room. Owners paid a lot of attention to details and we were surprised... More

We enjoyed our 3 night stay at SHELTON-LEA, overall, but a few little things disappointed us. I realise they are a little bit limited for room to park the cars, but it is a bit of a task to park in the area reserved for three cars. If two other cars are already in it certainly takes a bit of... More

So enjoyed our stay here. Large comfy bed, spa bath, little kitchenette. Everything we needed was provided and some caring extra's. Afternoon tea, generous continental breakfast in the fridge. We had our own entrance and came and went as we pleased. Jenny was friendly and welcoming but didn't intrude (which can be a bit of a pain in some B... More

Charming accommodation, warm and super clean make a great combination for a lovely weekend away. Delicious breakfast especially the pancakes and bacon w maple syrup! Fresh fruit add a very nice touch.

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

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.
