I stayed with family for one night and everyone was so friendly and the service excellent. It was so cold in Katoomba that night, that I asked for a spare heater and they gave me one straight away. Breakfast was great. Defenitely coming back next time. Thanks

I stayed at the Sky Rider for almost 3 weeks while visiting family at Katoomba. The owners Kerri and Jamie were welcoming and very helpful during my stay. The room was clean and warm, the shower was hot and the facilities enabled me to be self catering. I did use the restaurant occasionally for breakfast. Good selection of cooked and... More

Thanks Kerry and Jamie for a fabulous place to stay. It was so affordable and you gave excellent service. We have already recommended you to others. To have such a warm room and beautiful beds to come back to was just fabulous. The little extras are what made it so nice, the loan of a microwave, warm room on arrival,... More

The Sky Rider Motor Inn was a welcome relief for this family of five. Firstly we all slept comfortably in a room that had been warmed up for us prior to arrival. The room was very clean, furnishings were well maintained and the welcome when we checked in friendly and helpful. The Sky Rider Motor Inn was recommended to us... More

We stayed for four nights at this motel in Katoomba returning home last night. We have stayed there several times before and we noticed that since Kerry and James have taken over the management role from their parents that the refurbishment process has really got going. The breakfast room is great in the cold weather with a real log fire... More

I booked a family room for 4 and it was sufficient to house us all comfortably. At this price, the accommodation was great value for money. The place was well maintained and the facilities were sufficient to keep us warm and cosy in the cold winter. In fact, we did not even need to turn on the electric blankets as... More

I stayed here for 1 night and paid AUD$135 for a Superior Queen Room. This was my first time staying in an Australian Motel so I wasn't sure what to expect. Check in was great with a very helpful lady (who I think may have been the owner). I got lots of Blue Mountains tourist advice and was very happy... More

This Motel is an excellent choice for value. It is off the main road, so very quiet. Our superior queen room was comfortable and beautifully warm with heating and electric blankets. The breakfast was excellent and the owners just wonderful. Very friendly and extremely helpful. We have stayed before and will stay again. Thankyou.

Drove up to the Blue Mountains for a 3 year anniversary weekend and wanted to stay in the heart of Katoomba. This place was perfect! Less than a 5 min drive to Katoomba town centre where there were shops and pubs, train station, cafes etc. It was basically in the middle of anything and everything. We booked a Queen Deluxe... More

Stayed here for one night with my partner. Receptionist provided us with a map which was convenient as we didn't know the area well.There are shops close by such as target, woolworths, coles and big w and cafes. The parking is ok. The only remark would be the bathroom not having a hairdryer, no microwave, no safe to put things... More
