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.

Our first ever B&B and it was ideal. We stayed in the amaroo suite, it was quite large, very clean and really cosy. Jenny is a lovely host very friendly and helpful but we also felt that we had plenty of privacy. It's situated in a lovely quiet area within walking distance to echo point & scenic world, although the... More

We stayed at this B&B before, in December 2012. Now we had mother visiting from the Netherlands and we decided to visit Katoomba again. For us, there is no other place to stay in the mountains than Shelton-Lea. This time, same as last time, we thouroughly enjoyed staying here. Jenny put much effort into making our stay enjoyable.

I came away looking for a quiet couple of days and found this lovely B & B on Lurline Street. The breakfasts were lovely and the hosts sort to make the stay comfortable. It is about twenty minutes to the town centre and about 15 minutes to the Three Sisters so it is in quite a good location.

First time staying in a B&B and Shelton-Lea surpassed our expectations tenfold. Our room was lovely; cozy, nicely decorated, clean, private and very homey. The location was ideal, walking distance to Scenic World as well as into the main part of town (Katoomba). It was the extra touches that really made our stay memorable, we even ended up staying an...

Just visited this bed and breakfast a week ago. Situated fairly near Echo Point (3 sisters) and Scenic World. The room was nice and very spacious for 2. Plus there was a Jacuzzi in the bathroom. The hosts were kind enough to send us to the train station on the way back as well :)

We don't normally stay in b&b's , preferring large hotels with more facilities. However, our stay here may have convinced us to reconsider. We stayed in the amaroo suite and were very impressed with it's cleanliness and easy comfort. The little extras like chocolates and port were very much appreciated. Breakfast was excellent and it was a real treat to... More

My husband and I stayed at this delightful B&B in July. Our bungalow style ensuite bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette and TV room was very warm and comfortable. Our hosts were kind and provided chocolates and hot drinks in the evening and a delicious breakfast in the morning. The only small " minus" was that the walls were very thin and the... More
