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.

We stayed here for 3 nights in late July and were impressed by the accommodation. We were in a Family 5 room which was well equipped with TV, fridge-freezer, kettle, toaster etc and complimentary tea / coffee / milk which were replenished each day when the beds were made-up. The room had its own heating which unfortunately did not extend... More

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

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
