I am disappointed. I stayed there for three nights. Breakfast I had to book in advance. 28 Dollar!! I was asked (during the breakfast) if I want a espresso. I agreed and they wanted to charge it extra. The hotel is saying that wireless is for free. But only very slow internet is free of charge. And only for one... More

Upsides: great location, nice pool, country house decor but well done, comfy bed, pillows and a good enough bathroom with quality toiletries. Wifi included. Downsides: there are no good views of the mountains from bedrooms or public areas - don't believe the website. Badly designed hotel where the public lounge/restaurant should be a floor above with a verandah and bedrooms... More

if you are visiting Katoomba overnight, this is your best bet for a luxury, however please know it cannot compare to Sydney luxury. Personally, I prefer a more modern looking accommodation but this is an old fashioned colonial. The pink wallpaper was a little much, even for colonial. I also found it a little disappointing that the hotel was at... More

Having stayed extensively around Australia, Lilianfels is truly my new "home away from home" I have had the privilege of staying at this wonderful resort only once before. I was greeted by David the doorman who warmly welcomed me back to the hotel on a surname basis! The service only got better from there. We had arrived early at the... More

A classy and refined yet suitably low-key hotel for in keeping with the environment. The common areas and rooms are nicely decorated and well maintained, the gardens and the outdoor pool are also very attractive. To add to this the property has an interesting history, the service is friendly, and the hotel is also extremely conveniently located: it's only a... More

Definitely worth the trip with the girls to the mountains for the day. Setting us just magic & a great way to spend a chilly winters day. Service was great & food exceptional. Piano player was a nice touch. Lounge was packed with all types experiencing high tea & I can see why. Would definitely go back.

We enjoyed a one night stay at Lilianfels; our room was very comfortable; the atmosphere very relaxing; and having selected a room with a valley view, it was spectacular... when the mists parted. We enjoyed the colonial style, and there quite a lot of interesting hotel history on the walls. Dinner in Darley's restaurant is in the original colonial estate... More

A very romantic and classy boutique hotel. Personal service! However, the spa room doesn't provide bath salts. You can buy them from the ground floor though. I would highly recommend booking a high tea place on Saturday, they have a pianist playing and you get better seats if booked.

Lilianfels hotel is not only in a fantastic location, it feels like a million miles away. The hotel has a very relaxing atmosphere, with a beautiful outdoor pool and indoor spa facilities. The room was large, with quintessential English interiors, featuring an incredibly comfortable bed and large bathroom. The hotel even has a vast DVD library - perfect for those... More
