On a weekend when everything in town was booked up, we were fortunate to get one nights' stay here. It is a budget-priced hotel but the reviews sounded great and they had also had a Trip Advisor award so we thought we would try it. We're glad we did! The owners kindly allowed us an early check-in due to special... More

Staff were lovely and rooms were very clean. We stayed for 3 nights, it was located in a perfect spot close to the town centre and Scenic World. Would have loved a microwave as a standard item in the room along with plates and cutlery. Will stay there again

This place is pretty good place to stay. It is clean very friendly and respectable staff. The down side I've faced in this place is poor quality pillows, I can't call them pillow, very thin and small and only one extra pillow for two person. It was very terrible. No plates or wine glass like any other motel has.

We can also supply additional pillows on request and have pillows with different firmness to cater for all tastes. Regarding the additional equipment in the room we have everything you may require available from reception including; wine glasses, ice buckets, cutlery... More

The Sky Rider motor inn is very well priced for Blue Mountains accommodation. It's an older property but everything was clean, well maintained and the twin room had everything you needed for overnight. The management were very welcoming and helpful

Thank you for your review and comments. We are certainly looking to make changes to our signage, and reception area and although this is important for first impressions we are concentrating on improvement to the rooms where our guests spend their time. We are adding additional hot water systems to supply our Deluxe Rooms to assist with hot water consistency... More
