Had a weekend away with girls. Everyone had a wonderful time. Ate at the fabulous in-house restaurant - good food and excellent service. We had high tea which was in keeping with hotel style. Only criticism was the buffet breakfast which was below the quality you would expect of this hotel.

This is a great hotel. The staff are friendly, and rooms, although some are small are nicely decorated in a chintzy style. The pool and spa area are lovely and uncrowded when I stayed. Parking was a bit of a squeeze sometimes and drinks in the bar painfully expensive ($15 for one of the cheapest glasses of wine) and sometimes... More

Very fine hotel. Located within walking distance from the "Three Sisters" and a short drive to downtown Katoomba. The room were spacious and nicely furnished. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Definitely a place to stay.

A beautiful appointed hotel with excellent service and friendly staff. Our room was large and well-equipped. The bathroom likewise. The hotel is a brief walk to the Echo Point lookout and several walking trails. Darley's restaurant was superb.

We love Lilianfels. This was our second visit. Darley's is an amazing restaurant. We love the lounge but were disappointed the fire was not on during the day on Saturday while we had high tea. The indoor pool is lovely. We also love the new Appelles amenities. However, the breakfast is not good value at $28-35 for a buffet, when... More

Without a doubt Lilianfels has the best location in Katoomba. The views from our room were spectacular. The room was extremely well appointed & the service was first class. If you looking for five star accommodation this is the place to stay.

Just stayed this weekend. Paid $500 for a night. Expected this would mean five star. It is far short. Staff are average (except for Jess in the bar who seemed to do the work of 6 of her sluggish colleagues). Upon booking I also bought dinner for 2 at Darleys which was the sole reason for choosing this property. Some... More

We stayed here a few weeks ago with friends and it was excellent. Nice rooms, excellent breakfasts and a really good games room with a full size pool table. We spent a lot of time in the pool room with our friends and had a great time. Nice lounge area with really good cocktails and the staff in the hotel... More
