Our room was comfortable. Jo is very welcoming. It was cosy sitting by the fire with a glass of wine. Breakfast was also great. You can walk to the three sisters and close by restaurants. I would recommend this bed and breakfast for anyone wanting a comfy overnight stay. Jo went out of her way to ensure we enjoyed our... More

Stayed here recently for several nights. Avonleigh appears to be an Edwardian, purpose built bed and breakfast house in the Blue Mountains. It is furnished and decorated in period style. Happily the heating is modern, effective, hydronic heating and it was lovely not to feel the chill of the Blue Mountains winter. I would rate Avonleigh as a good 3... More

Stayed one night last week for business, on a very wet and windy night. Was a comfortable room and warm. Tea and coffee making facilities were in the common room; however a microwave would have been a good addition as due to the inclement weather I decided to stay in for the night and eat in with some supplies purchased...

Positioned close to the Three Sisters this is a great place to use as your base. You will need a car as it is a fair way from the Katoomba shops and the other scenic attractions. The place itself is beautifully restored and you step back in time. The rooms were comfortable, too. Our hostess was really great and she... More

We booked for two nights and were not disappointed. We were greeted at reception by the owner Joe who is absolutely charming like the B & B. Our room was big and spacious and we had lovely garden views. Clean and comfortable. Breakfast was included in our rate and was great. The cottage is located close to the Three Sisters... More

Lovely old house. Room was a good size and comfortable bed. Clean bathroom but looking like it could need a spruce up. The host was helpful and cooked a nice hot brekky in the morning. It was good value for the price we paid.

We stayed for one night over the Easter long weekend. The location of the property is great being close to Three Sisters and centre of Katoomba. Unfortunately thats where the positives ended. The property is extremely old and rundown. There was a musty smell in the room and the room was in need of an update. We stayed in room... More

We were greeted by a lovely lady who ran through how the accommodation worked, she showed us to our room and offered her assistance. On entering the room we had no coat hangers, but she was able to get us a couple straight away. Later we also needed some scissors and an extra towel and this was no issue. The... More

We were in Katoomba for a friends wedding but as it was a long weekend in Spring, accommodation was limited. Some of Avonleighs reviews were not spectacular but the family room was surprisingly comfortable. Breakfast was adequate but more to motel standard than your average B & B. The guest house is Victorian with lovely high ceilings. The facilities would... More
