The photos on the web site do not reflect the actual conditions. The pictures must have been taken a long time ago. The facility was shabby and in need of cleanup and some redecorating. We have traveled a lot in Europe and the US and this was one of the worst places that we stayed. The room was so small... More

We are disappointed to hear that your stay at Kurrara Guesthouse did not meet your expectations. Kurrara was sold recently and we, the new owners, have made positive changes in response to comments from our guests. Kurrara now serves a continental breakfast to include a variety of cereals, freshly baked breads, jams, yogurt, fresh fruit, juices and herbal teas. We... More

Wonderful place to stay for couples. Bit noisy when adjoining rooms are using their spa, but no other complaints, Young man managing the place was very helpful about local attractions and always had time for a chat. Would definately stay again and reccomend to family and friends.

Staying at Kurrara Guest House is just the most relaxing experience. It is very clean and comfortable with wonderful furniture and fittings from a bygone era. We felt very welcome in this truly lovely place which was very quiet and was everything we had hoped for. We enjoyed it so much we booked in for another night. We had a... More

We were so relaxed - were reading beside the fire in the excellent sitting room and couldn't stay awake. Climbed the stairs to the themed bedroom and fell into a super deep sleep. Breakfast the next morning was spot on. You must stay here next time you're in Katoomba.

Never have i felt more welcomed in the mountains, this place is full of character and olde world charm. Elizabeth is a perfect hostess and gracefully attended to all of our needs. It was supposed to be a no internet getaway, but we cheated once or twice as the house has great wi-fi. Our room (number 1!!) was the Old... More

My partner and I recently pre-booked this guest house. Upon arriving we found the staff member to be friendly but not very professional. He asked some inappropriate questions which made us slightly uncomfortable. I was recommended the Old Rose Spa Suite which was the best room of the house, however unfortunately this opened directly onto the common lounge which we... More

We're very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay at Kurrara. Since November, the House has been under new management, and many changes have taken place, including replacing the cleaning staff and repairing the parts that needed to be repaired (the new management takes these issues VERY seriously, trust us). Similarly, the websites are currently undergoing an... More

Kuarra is an old house and I had seen the complaints about it being dusty dirty which this is not 100% correct ! The place is very tidy a little clutterd... More

I lived in the bluebell room which was so cozy, and the ensuite was big enough for me. Although I spent a short time in the guesthouse, I could feel the decoration was exquisite. The host / staff, Emanuele, was sooooooooooo helpful!! He helped me to carry my heavy luggage up and down the stair, helped me to set up... More

Please do not waste your money going here! The photos are very deceiving - booked the wild flowers deluxe spa room expecting it to be all white and beautiful decor... red linen and multi coloured duvet covers, not attractive to look at for what you expect. Also took hours to get to sleep because the walls were so thin, could... More
