We stayed for 2 nights and had a room upstairs. The hotel does not have lifts so if you were given a room upstairs, it would be best to just bring your essentials up to the room. The location is about 2 kms to Katooma town, and also near to Leura. There is a steakhouse in the adjacent building, otherwise... More

A good Best Western venue. Had 2 nights in March 2014. Check in/out was good with very helpful temporary manager. Although almost adjacent to the main Sydney/Blue Mountain Highway there was no traffic noise and the rooms were clean and roomy, well equipped. An independent restaurant within the grounds provided good quality dining at reasonable prices. Walking distance to Katoomba... More

We stopped at this hotel in the Blue Mts made the reservation on line and took advantage of the internet rate. Check in was efficient and we were offered many things to see in the area. Restaurant for dinner was excellent. Hotel room was comfortable and clean. You knew you were in a Best Western.

We stayed here two nights and it was a good base for accessing Katoomba activities by car. It was easy to find and handy being on the highway with little traffic noise and plenty of off-street parking. Our ground floor room with en-suite was very comfortable, clean, well maintained and roomy! All facilities worked well, plenty of hot water, reverse... More

We booked this due to the good reviews and easy parking and were not disappointed. The location is easily accessible from the main highway, with a 5 minute drive into Katoomba, Leura or Wentworth Fall and easy parking at each. The room we stayed in was pleasant and clean, the wifi and TV were good. We didn't expect a fridge... More

We travel to Blue Mountains every year for 6’ Foot Truck marathon ... This time we choose Best Western Alpine Motor Inn. The front desk staff were very helpful on check-in and gave us lots of tips on what to do and where to eat within walking distance of the hotel. All good recommendations. We had a good sized room...

Pleasantly surprised with the arrangements as we had a small child with us. The in room facilities were most useful. the motel is just a little way "Out of Town" but convenient by car. No highway or train noise as double glazing is installed.

The accommodation was to a very good standard with good sized room and excellent facilities. The location was out of town a little but if you're just passing through, a good standard of accommodation. The room however was noisy at night with a major road and railway line behind it. The staff were largely disinterested and more interested in their... More

Stayed for a night at Best Western Alpine in January. The location is rather convenient - about 15 min walk from Katoomba train station and the gentleman at the recep is very helpful and friendly when we enquired about the Blue Mountains and vicinity around the hotel. We had a room on the 2nd floor. Although outside is the main... More

The managers were friendly and helpful from the first minute. The rooms are very clean, good climate control and excellent bathroom fixtures. It is an easy half mile walk to central Katoomba, and one mile walk to Leura along safe pathways along the highway.
