My wife and I spend three nights at the Sky Rider Motor Inn during a long-long weekend in the Blue Mountains. It's an older motel and looks rather unassuming from the outside, but don't let this deter you; our room was spotless, airy, and quiet of an evening, the bed was very comfortable and the shower was hot and punchy...

Family run business [I specifically asked about that to confirm an assumption because]; despite being an old establishment, the owners obviously work hard to keep everything nice and clean - grounds, room and breakfast - no dust or mould anywhere. Only a short walk to Katoomba station (or about AU$7 by taxi). Only a short walk to Scenic World. My... More

We stayed in a deluxe queen room & found it very spacious. The bed was sooooo comfortable. The only room for improvement was the bathroom. It was partially great & partially okay. It had been renovated but half was still old. A small space for the shower (with shower curtain), but it was all very clean. There was no traffic... More

Stayed here one night on the way to Canberra. The host was a lovely lady who really cared about her job and her customers. She was extremly helpful in finding good food spots and advised travel tips. The hotel is clean tidy and comfortable. The hotel itself is dated and you can see this is certain areas. However this appears... More

The staff was very nice we got there early and asked if we could just park there so we could walk into town. They were very happy to check us in early with no extra charge but they still needed to get the room ready for us. We were very happy for that. The room was clean when we came... More

A friend and I stayed here for 2 nights while visiting the Blue Mountains to do some bushwalking. The motel was well located just off the main road and only a few minutes from the Katoomba Centre. The room was very affordable and included all the expected fitting including bar fridge, tea and coffee facilities. The motel is a little... More

We stayed in this motel in the Blue Mountains and whilst the mist made the visit unsuccessfully, the motel provided a good value, comfortable place to stay. I left something behind and they kindly posted it on to Perth for me. A friendly owner with good service. Thank you.

We stayed with a group of about 36 friends for 3 plus nights and had the most fantastic time ever. It was our 4th annual rally which is held in a different state each year. Kerry and her staff made everyone welcome and provided excellent service and hospitality. They arranged dinner on the first night which was better than some... More

Great place to stay in Katoomba. Very clean and tidy, nicely appointed decor and great staff. The breakfast is also good quality and good value. I left my boots behind and when I called Lyn kindly offered to part then back to me. I would recommend this place to anyone :-)
