If you don't mind using the communal bathrooms at the ends of the hallways then you'll love this place. I had to explore all the rooms! Such a stunning and well maintained building. It's been kept as original and close as possible to the 1880's. The furniture and decor is great. We had single beds but they were very comfortable.... More

Named after the NSW Governor Lord Carrington The hotel has a Lord Carrington Suite and a Lady Carrington suite. However I stay in the deluxe rooms. The hotel rooms are quite... More

The Carrington is a beautiful old Hotel and is one of a handful in the area of the Blue Mountains. The service was fantastic and breakfast was wonderful. Lots to do and see around the area. A fabulous place to just relax and enjoy.

What a lovely, romantic and well kept hotel. I was initially apprehensive as I had seen other bad reviews but wow, It is so nice to see a historical building excellently maintained; with original furniture (our bed and table were engraved "CH"), the original elevator, period artwork, period colour pallet and the windows! Beautiful stained glass windows to illuminate your... More

A lovely old hotel in the breathtaking Blue Mountains. Views are unbelievable. A really nice place to visit in winter with open fire places and hot chocolate. A lovely place to just get away for the weekend.

I loved The Carrington, it isdefinitely one of the most charming hotels I've ever stayed at. The wide hallaways, the spacious rooms, the vintage decor, the different rooms for every activity you can imagine... I think the best way to describe it is saying that the moment you enter The Carrington you feel you walk into another era, where you... More

We used a cudo voucher to visit this beautiful hotel for two nights. Breakfast was included. We were treated wonderfully and were made welcome from check in until our departure. It is a beautiful old hotel with great ambience. The room was large and clean. The bathroom was excellent. Loved it all.

We were on a bus tour from our ship, on the way to the Blue Mountains. We stopped here for a wonderful lunch prepared for our group. We ate in a beautiful old grand ballroom/dining room. This is a historic hotel, that is very well kept up inside and the beautiful grounds outside. It was a highlight of our tour.

We decided on a short break in Katoomba and chose The Carrington as we had heard it had been recently renovated. What a lovely hotel. Our room was very spacious, the giant king bed was very comfortable and had a lovely view towards Echo Point. The décor was in keeping with the age of the hotel. We loved the common... More

This is a grand old lady of a hotel, old and historic but well maintained and in great shape. Set at what must be the highest point of the town of Katoomba in the Blue Mountains it is central to shops and restaurants. It's a short drive or longer walk to scenic landmarks like Echo Point and the Three Sisters.... More
