Fine for a quick getaway and seems to be on a par in regards to other accomodation in this price range ($160 family room). It is clean, if not dated, but again not dissimiliar from any other motels in this category. If you are a non smoker the smell of smoke from people smoking outside the other rooms can be... More

We have stayed at the Sky Rider Motor Inn previously and it was a no brainer to book here again. We were warmly greeted by Jamie and Kerrie who are only too happy to help guests with directions or places to eat etc.. Our room was very clean, the bed and pillows were very comfortable and the shower is large... More

An older motel that has fresh paint, very clean and the staff and service was friendly, including accommodating our late arrival. I liked the idea of a dining room for breakfast and wish I had time to have enjoyed a swim in the pool.

Two colleagues and myself stayed here as we were attending a conference nearby. We shared a family room. The accommodation was clean, roomy and more than adequate for the three of us, so it would be ideal for a family group. The management were friendly and very helpful, providing us with maps of the area so we were able to... More

I have now stayed at the Sky Rider Motor Inn twice in the past 6 months, it's location is convenient to the local attractions of Katoomba and situated just off the Great Western Highway. The rooms are very clean and staff very friendly and accommodating. I would stay here again.

This place was a pleasure to stay in and the staff were so friendly and helpful. The rooms have coffee and tea making facilities as well as a toaster and fridge and they are more than happy to microwave any food you might have. Even though we weren't dining in their restaurant, they still allowed us to borrow some cutlery.... More
