I took my husband away for his birthday and it fell on their Christmas in July. We had a wonderful time there. The place is very majestic and regal. The staff are all friendly and very traditional to the time period that I think this place all about. They walked with heads held high and very proud of their position... More

We called in here after walking to Echo Point and back. We have been trying to call in old traditional bars on our rounds of Sydney. We didn't enjoy it here. The bar was dark and the tables unclean. The beer was cloudy and didn't taste nice, and after our one drink we left. Wont be going back!

Location: You can't really miss the Carrington Hotel. It's whitewashed exterior rises over Katoomba township and offers a charming and historical manifestation of grandeur and beauty. The hotel is located in the main thoroughfare of Katoomba, situated within walking distance of various restaurant, shopping and entertainment facilities. Echo Point and the Three Sisters is a short drive by car. The... More

Beautiful old world charm. We stayed in a suite; very spacious, excellent view, well maintained. Staff very friendly, housekeeping stopped for a quick chat & helped us down the heritage lift. Bit cold in winter so come prepared

We stayed for 1 night on a quick trip to the Blue Mountains. We fell in love with this wonderful old hotel with all its charm, character and quirks. We arrived early and were met by friendly staff who informed us our room was ready. It was on the second floor, after navigating the original lift (1905 vintage) and a... More

The Carrington, along with the Hydro Majestic and Caves House deserve to be kept in as good a condition as can be managed. They are all shambling big building with old fittings, funky hallways, stair wells and such. But everyone who visits them and knows them from years past, just yearns for them to be really, well, nice The Carrington... More

We actually stayed down the road but came up for a drink and something to eat. I loved the place - the staff were really friendly and it was great to sit outside with a cocktail before dinner - almost colonial in feel especially when you take a wander around the rooms inside. I would dearly love to stay on... More

We took up our Luxuryescapes.com voucher we had purchased earlier in the year to have a stopover in the Blue Mountains on the way to Port Macquarie. What a pleasurable experience we had. The room was very spacious with a king sized bed and a large bathroom complete with spa bath. It was clean and tastefully decorated. We enjoyed so... More

We stayed here last minute and had a lovely stay. Room was basic but clean. Very warm and cosy and we had access to the front balcony which was nice for the sunrise! The Lounge is nice for a drink by the cosy fire. Breakfast was good but would've liked hot to be included in the rate but still, it... More
