Spent 2 nights in Shelton Lea, and it was definitely not at the slightest bit disappointing!:) Paul n Jenny are very friendly hosts, and the accomodation os well-furnished and clean! It definitely made us feel at home w the continental breakfast prepared and the warm fireplace that helped to keep us warm from the brittle winter! ~alan.

Jenny and Paul were wonderful hosts! Who made our stay very comfortable and enjoyable. My adult brothers, sister in law and I wanted to give our mother a special present for her 60th birthday and our stay here definitely contributed to that. The rooms were clean, comfortable and beautiful. Breakfast was delicious, and surprise muffins for afternoon tea was a... 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.

Jenny is a lovely host very friendly and helpful but we also felt that we had plenty of privacy.

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.

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 :)
