From the moment we entered Kurrara we felt welcomed and relaxed. Evelyn and Iain are superb hosts who are passionate about Kurrara and Katoomba offering much assistance about local restaurants and attractions. The peaceful atmosphere with the many additional ‘treats’ and quality breakfast make Kurrara stand out from the rest. This is a very special guest-house that has attention to... More

There's nothing like taking a small trip to the Blue Mountains and feeling so welcome by the lovely staff. This place felt like a home with it's rustic, vintage decor, and locally grown food provided for us for brekkie. You know you'll be recommending a place to others when you don't want to leave. Great experience, fantastic service!

This is my second time staying at Kurrara and frankly, I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in the mountains. We stayed in one of the upstairs rooms, the Margeurite, and it was just perfect. The queen bed was very comfortable and beautifully furnished. I've seen some of the other rooms and they're all gorgeous in their own way. I'll be... More

From the moment you see it as you arrive it catches your eye looking so quaint. Off street parking and close to the centre of town to either walk or drive. The welcome was lovely and genuine this couple have a genuine pride in the guest house and commitment to respecting those that have owned it before them even naming... More

We stayed here for one night, but if were returning to the Blue Mountains would book to stay here. Rooms were comfy and warm, staff were accommodating, breakfast was plentiful. Were happy for us to take along our one year old and a travel cot. Would definitely recommend.

Kurrara guest house is one of the best places we have stayed at. There was a large comfortable queen bed and a nice touch to the room was the artwork on the walls and the complimentary port in our Spa suite.My wife and I have travelled around Australia and for the price this would be the best value for money...

Having stayed at Kurrara previously for a special celebration, I had no hesitation in re-booking for a weekend stay. This time I chose the Lily Room, one of the recently refurbished upstairs rooms. It's just delightful - a pleasure to the eye, very quiet, tastefully decorated. The bed was comfy and the mattress supported my back well. Kurrara's only a... More

Kurrara guest house is really cosy and comfortable (I loved the guest lounge rooms), the bedrooms are immaculate and very nicely decorated and well appointed, the breakfast is generous and the hosts are lovely and welcoming. It's in a great location too. I can't fault it! We really enjoyed our stay here and I'll be back.

What more could you ask for, the house was so charming. The room we had was small but very well laid out & cozy. Breakfast was plentiful & delightful, over all we loved our stay at Kurrara house &I would love to return to the serenity.

Fabulous!!!!! On the many trips we have had around Australia and overseas, this guest house was one of the best. On a cold arrival day, the rooms were warm and inviting. We stayed in the Lily room upstairs which was beautiful. The owners were lovely and the breakfast was nice. We will be back to stay again. Lynn. C
