We can't get enough of the Metropole. Have stayed 3 times, and each time its the same. Clean, comfortable and friendly. Its not a high end hotel, its somewhere to relax aftet a day in the mountains in a comfortable homely atmosphere.

Stayed overnight. Central location. Good rooms. Warm heating. Walking distance to all of Katoomba town. Close to local sites like Three Sisters. Reasonably priced. Close to good restaurants and bars. We would stay there again and happy to recommend.

I was quite surprised that the combined information from the reviews did not match the experience. I usually find that I get a pretty accurate gauge from reading about the best and worst aspects of a place. I agree that this place does have "olde world charm" but I don't think that this is enough to redeem it. The location... More

Stayed here for one night with my girlfriend when visiting the Blue Mountains during Autumn in the King Spa Suite which is quite good I must say. The staff was great and friendly, both the reception and the breakfast staff. They are good in team work and food was awesome. They even pointed out I should park closer to the... More

This place deserves 50 stars, not 5. The two young servers, a girl with purple hair and a dude with long brown hair in a ponytail and one of those bar ear piercings things, were friendly and polite and informative to a fault. Food was awesome and delicious. They did a great job in serving. Never waited us for too... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights in the Metropole Guesthouse in January 2015. The building has been there as a guest house since the early 1930s, so don't expect it to be overflowing with all the mod cons. It is a typical guesthouse from the last century; the rooms are small, though the bathroom in our room was quite... More

We stayed for one night over the weekend however did not have any meals at the Metropole. Walking through the front door is like stepping back into yesteryear. The decor is obviously 1930's and appears to be well maintained. The rooms were clean, comfortable & quiet (we were positioned at the side of the building) and we had no trouble... More

We had booked this hotel for one of my older friend who came after a long time. His parents were also with him. We were looking for a place convenient to reach and enjoyable for them too. This Guest house is located next to the Katoomba railway station that was very convenient for them. This property is designed like a... More

This hotel was in a fabulous location just next to Katoomba train station. Our room was at the front end of the hotel so loud trains kept me awake until midnight. I paid an extra $10 for a cot and I was given a portable folding cot, not a proper cot. There are tea making facilities in the room with... More

We opted for the coupon deal - and stayed for 5 nights. Wished we hadn't. Although the hotel has the best location opposite the railway station - we heard every train during the night. Goods trains shunting, & crossing the points every night. Ear plugs helped. The bedroom was sad, and a bit dirty. Lounges looked pretty but 70 years... More
