Enjoyed staying at this professionally run very "civilised hotel". I really enjoyed the outdoor pool. Massages at $150 a pop a over the top though. I would definitely stay here again. David the valet was very helpful and professional.

The property is well located, a short stroll to the major tourist attraction. Service was warm and friendly from arrival and attentive throughout. Room was well appointed, comfortable and offered partial views to the visually stunning valley. Didn't try Darleys restaurant this time but have been before and it's fine dining and has a good menu.

Lillianfels is a special place, and this was our second time there. The facilities including the rooms are beautifully decorated and are surrounded by lovely gardens and grounds. The staff and management are absolutely the best. This is an easy get away from Sydney. We have simply taken the NSW trains from Central to Katoomba both times and easily gotten... More

Our first stay at Lilianfels, but we hope not our last. The staff manage to create and sustain the welcoming atmosphere of a country house, yet the hotel offers all the facilities of a modern hotel. Lovely large rooms, a good spa, and excellent cuisine and knowledgeable service at Darley's restaurant. The many steps down to Lady Darley's Lookout are... More

Lilianfels is a lovely hotel, beautifully done up, and with delightful artwork and historic photos everywhere you look. Our room was spacious and very clean, with bed extremely comfortable. We had a very healthy and filling buffet breakfast, and enjoyed the billiards room and especially the beautiful indoor pool. It is only a very short walk to Echo Point so... More

We had a great escape weekend, but on reflection that owed more to the Blue Mountains and Darleys than to Lilinafels. This is a 4 star hotel pretending to be five stars and charging in line with its pretence. But it does boast Darleys (restaurant) and its quality can forgive the hotel many of its weaknesses. Darley’s food and service... More
