Firstly I'd like to point out I have never complained about accommodation before, but I felt in this case people should be informed of the property before they look at staying here. We were so disappointed with the stay. We thought that the Avonleigh Guesthouse would be a great cosy weekend away for an Anniversary but was anything but this.... More

The staff were welcoming on our arrival but this was the highlight. After a rough night with a hard bed my husband and I woke to no hot water. Breakfast was basic toast, condiments and cereal. The tea and coffee were cold. After about half an hour scrambled eggs were placed in the bain-marie that was not turned on. Unfortunately... More

Stayed a night with Avonleigh Country House while visiting the blue mountain. The location was good as it is only 5-10mins walking distance to echo point. Main attraction point for three sister. However, it is rather far from the main eateries near katoomba station. However, beside it is the blue mountain chocolate factory where you can have some nice hot... More

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
