Having only stayed in 1 motel previously and having a pretty bad experience, we were very relieved and happy to be staying at Sky Rider. The room was lovely, comfortable and clean and the service very friendly. Breakfast was great and the location for exploring the Blue Mtns couldn't have been better.

We were looking for last minute accomodation and we were very happy with the friendly service given by Kerry. The room was very comfortable and provided all you needed for a short stay. The bed was the best bed we have ever slept in and we have stayed in many motels. Kerry was super helpful and showed us all we... More

While the motel generally is of the older type, the rooms seem to have had a fresh coat of paint recently, they were clean, the bed was very comfortable and the owners were lovely, welcoming and very helpful. We thought the $90 room tariff was very reasonable. The breakfast was worth the stay alone. A lovely sunny breakfast room with... More

Fantastic little motor inn. A little bit out of Katoomba town if you don't have a car but a nice enough walk into town so don't let that put you off. Really friendly, helpful service. Accommodation is nice - clean, modern and a fantastic breakfast.

Excellent location to visit Blue Mountains (especially Three Sisters). As it was cold in Katoomba the electric blankets were very useful. Good breakfast for only a few dollars. Helpful staff. No complaints.

We spent two nights here, the room was well supplied to suit our needs. We found the bed very comfortable, a great sleep was had both nights, no road noise or noise from neighbours either.Very clean and well presented. The morning we were about to leave we experienced a stunning sunrise. would definitely recommend this motel to others.
