We stayed at the Carrington a couple of weeks ago. Had a wonderful time, as usual the hotel is well kept and has a lovely feel to it, open fires, lovely big old dining room, bar and a smaller room in the back to play pool or just read next to the fire. We had a traditional room without a... More

Loved our stay in this beautiful hotel. History everywhere. Rooms were clean and neat and the shower was like a waterfall. Right in town . Close to everything. We enjoy wandering around the main floor rooms- it was like being in a museum. Plenty of parking if you drive. Sits on the main street but back in.

Have stayed here before and thought it would be good here again. From the moment you walk through the door you are treated like royalty. The rooms are truly old world charm and well decorated. Old heater style in the room but was not cold at any point. Great bar area and lounge with a open fire. Hotel in close... More

The Carringtons location in the heart of Katoomba made it the ideal place to stay during the Winter Magic Festival. Our Room was clean as welcoming with a great view, The Staff were friendly and professional and the Carrington its self full of character and local history.

Booked a balcony room, lovely to step out and see the view, no bath though. Breakfast as expected, typical continental, usual food. Rooms clean. Dinner very good, excellent selection, not open for dinner all nights though. $55 for 2 courses, good value.

Travel back in time to when staying in a Hotel was exclusive for the rich. The feel is Victorian times and the atmosphere feels like the 19th century. After a wonderful dinner play a game of snooker in the Billiards room and a drink in the bar. The following morning a lovely breakfast is followed by a leisurely walk around... More

A lovely decor to relax and have a cool drink after walking in the blue mountains. Warm gas fire and almost looked like a wood fire with a lovely marble fire place. Lots of space. Original decor is great and staff very friendly.

The room was lovely and Champagne Charlies great as well. We dined in The Grand Dining Room for Dinner having the 3 course Dinner($72.00 pp). Lovely food, except for my entree which consisted...

We were lucky enough to get the last spa room as the hotel was fully booked. When you walk into the Carrington it is like stepping back in time, the building is old but well maintained. The rooms were old and needs some refurbishment, but the hotel is amazing. The room we had didnt really have a view as it... More
