Very very disappointing, grubby, uncomfortable, cheap and tacky. this was once a grand old guesthouse but it is now very run down. I would definitely not recommend it. breakfast room looks like something out of a 1950's dormitory. owners are obviously trying to provide accommodation on the cheap .garden very over run. Not worth what we paid to stay there.... More

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay. The location is great, within easy walk of breathtaking views at Echo point. We watched the sunset. The place is full of character and the staff are really pleasant. Thoroughly recommended.

I should have taken notice of the reviews, but I tend to like to make up my own mind. Big mistake !! However I do believe that some of the reviews are a little harsh, Breakfast was good. Room OK but. Very stuffy. No exhaust fan in bathroom ,and a threatening notice on the door to say that if you... More

Considering the price, this place was a bit of a letdown. It was clean, comfortable, and quiet, but as others have said, was lacking in any specific character or soul. The location was good for an early morning walk to Echo Point and the Three Sisters and it wasn't too far from the main street to walk to dinner (if... More

I arrived early (10.30am), as I was visiting the mountains for the Winter Magic festival, and was instantly told I was too early. I asked if I could leave my bag and told the man my name. I wasn't introduced so have no idea who the man was. I was told to leave my bags in the office with the... More

We have stayed in several B and Bs in the blue Mountains and were disappointed with this one. It looks charming from the outside but lacking on the inside. Smell is an important sense when you walk into somewhere. Scented candles/ oil burners would be an idea. Our room was cold upon arrival and we had to work out how... More

Paid 2 nights and had to leave early for an emergency at home. In a way it was a merciful release from the worst (by far) accommodation we've experienced in many stays in the Katoomba area. It was no surprise that the hotel didn't even hint at any consideration. The threat of a $580 charge if you accidentally fall foul... More

Forget about a romantic B&B. On the outside it looks promising. Once you walk in the door (at 2pm) you are overwhelmed with the smells of Asian cooking. The room looked OK on the surface but cobwebs around heater indicated less than immaculate cleaning. Notices threatening huge ($300) charges to your credit card if you left the bathroom door open...

Booked on line two nights before hand - very easy - they followed up on the arriving evening with helpful instructions for the key location as we arrived late around 10pm. It would have been great to have motion sensor lighting in the driveway toward the veranda as it was dark and difficult to see our way up the steps.... More
