This house is clean, cozy, quiet, and comfortable. The owners are very personal, charming, and helpful. I love the little details like cake all day and port at night in the TV lounge. We will visit again.

Stayed with my son Jack during a tour of the Blue Mountains, and having stayed at 7 other hotels in the Mountains, I really wish I'd have discovered this one sooner! Clean, comfortable and excellent value for money.

My wife, I and 2 friends stayed at Kurrara for 2 nights. It is a beautiful property, recently renovated and beautifully appointed. The hosts were very welcoming. Breakfast was excellent. Lots of different types of teas, cookies and coffee available at any time. We also spent a bit of time in the beautiful garden, sipping wine. We will be back.... More

Kurrara Guest House was the perfect location for my holiday. The hosts were friendly and the decor of the house was superb. I also really enjoyed the continental breakfast, which accommodated for every possible dietary requirement. Thank you for such a wonderful experience!

we had 3 nights at this guesthouse. The room was snug and comfortable with spa bath that was most welcome after each day of walking in the Blue Mountains. Lots of treats too, and a large choice of delicious food for breakfast and afternoon tea. Beautiful, quiet setting and close to walks and restaurants.

Iain & Evelyn are warm, friendly hosts and make your stay relaxing. We were on a 2 night trip to Blue Mountains and this is a perfect base. A mixture of old and modern charm restored beautifully by Iain himself. Continental breakfast was more than adequate with some homemade produce. Would thoroughly recommend.

Was recommended this guest house by my son and it was great. Ian is a gracious host and nothing was too much bother. Quiet and comfortable and made to feel like home. Very convenient location. The port in the room was a nice touch.
