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

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.

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.

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
