Rooms very clean and tidy. Well insulated didn't feel too cold despite the chilly weather. Iain and Jean were really friendly and helpful and made you feel very welcome and made the stay really enjoyable. Very close to Katooma and Leura. Traffic noise did not bother me in the least despite being right by the Great Western Motor Way as... More

Rooms are clean and tidy. Basic. Bed was comfy for price. Hair dryer didnt work but was replaced. Traffic noise as expected, bring earplugs. No issues for a basic motel. Bring earplugs. Fuel and food all close by.

Stayed at this hotel on recent trip to Katoomba to participate in the North Face 100 trail event. Were in room 6 on ground floor. The noise of the trucks and traffic on the highway made it impossible to sleep. Spoke with manager and were advised we were in one of the quitter rooms and the windows were double glazed.... More

Decor and furniture was dated. 90s look maybe? Had a solid sleep though and staff was super nice, so that made up for it. Other than that, parking might be a but of a pain if the motel is full as there's limited spaces. But we didn't have too much of a problem.

Nice motel in Katoomba. Located on the Great western Highway, but double glazed windows keeps out a lot of noise.. Clean, well appointed but terrible jokes by the manager!. Close to Leura & Katoomba town centers, but Saturday night parking in Katoomba was a challenge. It was mothers day weekend so finding accommodation was hard, but using Expedia we had... More

I have stayed at the Best Western Alpine twice in the last month. On both occasions I was happy with the room and service provided. As the motel is on the Great Western Highway, the main road, the double glazed windows exclude most of the traffic noise, so sleeping is not a problem. The room was immaculately clean, and bed...

Friendly service, value for money room and brilliant view from the first floor. We travelled there to see the sights of the blue mountains. Reception was helpful with directions. Food was great in their restaurant. Recommend to any one to stay there.

An older motel which has spacious refurbished rooms. The room and bathroom were very clean. The beds were quite firm which may not suit everyone. Reception was friendly and welcoming. There was noise from the highway, but with the window closed we were not bothered by it. We ate at the attached Rose Cottage restaurant. This had a limited menu... More

An older style hotel, but clean and with all the basic needs, on the highway, but no noise due to double glazed windows, which is good, and was one of our concerns booking here. Nice hearty breakfast delivered to your room, and a reasonable price for the Blue Mountains. Friendly staff on chec-in and out. helped arrange taxi too.
