This small in is like stepping back in time, it's in the perfect location just five minutes from the three sisters. The rooms have heaters and electric heated sheets which you will need. There's a unique little chocolate cafe a few minutes walk away definitely worth a visit too! The staff were very friendly got advise when needed ordered taxis... More

Rather than stay at a venue closer to the Katoomba CBD we decided to stay closer to Echo Point this time. This decision was based on the fact that we could easily walk to the amazing views from here rather than drive as we would have to do if we stayed elsewhere. The premises are well-located, and the rooms clean... More

Average motel stay, clean and basic. Very close to the Three Sisters. Not close to main street in Katoomba with shops and restaurants. Motel staff were very helpful, on arrival restaurant information was volunteered with a list and map. Even given a list of places that offered a discount if we showed our room key.

Expectations are everything. We liked this place! I warned my family that this place was tired and shabby based on the reviews. However, I would say it seemed sleepy and charming. The man at the desk was helpful and pleasant, the room was tidy and clean, even if the decor was not up to date. The beds were comfy and,... More

I chose this hotel for a one night stay because it was the most reasonably priced in Katoomba and was situated conveniently for the tourist sights. The room was what we expected for this type of motel and the beds were clean and quite comfortable enough. As we arrived by train, we had to walk through the town to reach... More

The Princess and I, stayed in Rm 125 at this tired, run-down, little place. We prepaid and wish we hadn't. The rooms are as basic as you can get, and the bed is like a sandbag. I've slept on beaches which were more comfortable. The walls are so thin you can hear all goings on in the next rooms. You... More

Close to the 3 Sisters & other attractions, this motel is in the ideal position. Granted it is an older style motel & the price reflects this. Our room was clean & warm & big enough for 3 people. Would stay there again.

We stayed here for the weekend and it was reasonable for the price we paid. The room was okay, the doona a bit dusty so didn't end up using it as I was sneezing non-stop with it on our bed. Aside from that, it was an okay place to stay for a night or two - besides you wouldn't want... More

Stayed here for three nights. Had to buy a heater as the air conditioning didn't work. Found dead insects on the window ledges, torn curtains (was assured these were going to be replaced) and stains on the bedspreads, which were also torn. The bathroom needed a good clean, there were hairs on the floor and mould in the corners. The... More

We chose this inn partly due to availability, but also for proximity to Echo Point - I wanted to easily pop over at night to see stars. It was comfortable enough for a weekend trip, they could accommodate late arrivals, good amenities for its class, hot water. So, no complaints.
