Stayed at the Echo Motor Inn in Katoomba, NSW Blue Mountains yesterday and can recommend for the budget minded. Two minutes from the Three Sisters tourist location and minutes from all the other sites in the area. We had forgotten how nice this area is. The motel is perfectly adequate without being anything more than it pretends. In the older... More

We booked (and PAID) online for a premium room but when we arrived we were told there'd been a "mix up" and we ended up with a standard room, half the size and no view. The website has a lot of stuff about how they are modernising the rooms, but they are still run down. I had the impression they... More

The Motel is located very conviniently near the famous Three Sisters in Katoomba. You can take some very nice walks, starting at the Motel. It is also about 1km away from most restaurants and shops, so you can walk there if you don't have a car. The Motel has deals with some restaurants in town, where you get 10% off.... More

Reading other reviews there seems to be a wide range of reviews of the accommodation here from which I deduce that the rooms vary a great deal. I thought I was given the worst one available. It was the only room without net curtains which, with such a large picture window, I could have done with for privacy. The bathroom... More

Only stayed one night in the motel so my review is based on that one night. The location was great, the staff were helpfuland insightful and the rooms were great for what you pay. All in all a great experience

We booked this place online through one of the booking companies and seemed to have paid alot more than other reviewers. It is all very tired and outdated and had we not prepaid would not have stayed here. There was no aircon, no hot water in kitchenette, blankets on the bed that had hairs from previous occupants, filthy net curtains,... More

I had an unexpected trip to Katoomba and needed accommodation for one night. This Motel is older style but very clean and comfortable with heating, two fans, TV, tea making facilities and windows that open. The bed was comfortable. The shower had good hot water pressure and towels and soap were provided. The Motel is on a busy day time... More

We arrived in Katoomba during a thunderstorm. Pouring rain we pulled into the Echo Point Motel as it was the first we found. My husband was thrilled with the $92 rate for two adults and a 3 year old. The room was outdated but clean, with microwave, fridge and tea/coffee facilities, but no air conditioning. Luckily it wasn't that hot... More

I stayed here for two nights and found it great value for money in a location very close to the three sisters. Although you could say its a bit dated it was clean comfortable and quiet and very comfortable. A bit out of town if you don't have your own transport to reach the local restaurants however if you do... More
