We had a quick revisit to the Carrington last week on our way to Sydney. The mountains were rainy and foggy making for great atmosphere but hard to go out to find dinner as the restaurant was not open during the week for dinner. We easily found a fabulous cafe just across the street but did discover we could have... More

Well my husband had booked this and what a pleasant surprise this lovely old elegant hotel is. Set high on Katoomba's main street a great location. The brasserie down the drive was a nice place to eat. The whole place is worth wandering around to discover, billiards room, various sitting areas with open fire, bar area. All in all an... More

We loved it here. The hotel has old world character and the staff are fantastic. I would of loved to have an option of doing a historic tour of the hotel. We would definitely stay here again when visiting the Blue Mountains.

My partner and myself spent a night here, the room was beautiful and clean, we also had by far the most delicious meal I have ever had! The staff were lovely and very professional, definitely returning again!

Everything about the Carrington is old world with its lovely decorated antique rooms and we were delighted with our spacious and clean Tomah Suite. The wifi didn't work on the 3rd floor but that didn't matter because I spent more time downstairs where it worked, having coffee on the front deck as well as in the bar café. Our first... More

Ever since I clapped eyes on this Hotel I wanted to stay there because it is a beautifully preserved Edwardian edifice. Our room was quite delightful with loads of period detail and to get there you can use a wonderful creaky old lift that must be nearly a hundred years old but beautifully maintained. I must have used it several... More

Unfortunately I had to cancel at the last minute due to my 92 yr old father having to go to hospital. I phoned the hotel and spoke to Derek who kindly did not charge any fee at all, not even a cancellation fee as did wotif who I booked through. Makes me want to stay there even more. Great service...

Ok so it is a touch creepy (in a good way) from the time you walk in the door there's something mystical about this place. You start thinking about what has happened inside these walls, the people, the stories. The lift, the billiard room, the lounge, don't worry about the 3 sisters if you're staying here allow a few hours... More

We were a group of three adults travelling together and found this a very comfortable, relaxing spot to stay. the charm of this hotel is its old character. This is such a nice change from modern hotels that are all the same. We will remember our time at The Carrington whereas it is easy to forget stays in large impersonal... More

This is a beautiful old hotel. We had a premier spa room because it was freezing and we wanted a hot soak, which we thoroughly enjoyed. Staff at reception were very friendly. I've rated it down because the breakfast was really not good. Pineapple was bruised, kiwis rotting and oranges really dried out. Very off putting to see a lack... More
