Despite its age the hotel has a charm about it. It is clean and King room was reasonable size. Bed was soso but pillows were very hard. It is close to restaurants and local shops. staff were polite and helpful. The lounge is a great spot to relax. Best for short stay. Parking is limited so tip is to leave... More

While I'm a self confessed thrifty traveller, I expect a standard above the average park bench when paying $209.00 a night for a room. My friend and I had paid for 2 nights accommodation in advance with a third night free however we departed after the second night on the recommendation of my Chiropractor as I had excruciating back pain...

Dear Sue, Thank you for your review as all feed back is always appreciated. I'm not quite sure why you are saying you paid $209.00 per night, when in fact you were paying $69.66 per person, per night for the following package:- Our Spring midweek $209.00 per person for a two night package with the third night a bonus free...

This place is in a great location in Katoomba, only a short stroll to the main street and eateries. It looks like its been through a renovation in recent years and has that old guest house feel. Our room was clean and tidy Staff were polite and helpful. Parking is available in back, however it fills up quickly. On street... More

We had travelled as a family from Brisbane via Sydney for a family holiday and had a couple of days at the Metropole Guesthouse in Katoomba. The Metropole is old world and interesting a hark back to a bygone era which we loved. The room was clean and the place is well kept. Our children had fun playing table tennis... More

We went using a Sunseeker Deal not expecting the great 3 days we had. The hotel is old and dates back to days when the mountains were the place to holiday. However it has been well restored and is very clean and cosy. Another reviewer compared it to an Agatha Christie story and this does have merit in a positive... More

Where to start on a review of this hotel. I guess I will start with the positives as this will definitely take the shortest time. The building although old, is quaint and fairly well kept with some original features. The floor boards creek underfoot in keeping with the age of the building. There are a number of cosy public rooms... More

In Katoomba to do a little photography around the Blue Mountains ( In July ) I selected this for the location. Directly across the road from the train station! Having no idea what Christmas in July was about I was a bit confused when I saw Santa inside the doorway! Given the quirky nature of the place I assumed they... More

Had a 3 night stay for Christmas in July. Christmas dinner was included on the first night, then breakfast and dinner the next day and breakfast only on the third day. Good value. The Christmas dinner was accompanied with a singer who sang the usual christmas carols and everyone joined in, made it a very happy night. The room was... More

My friend and I stayed a couple of nights last weekend at the Metropole in Katoomba. We had a lot of walking planned for the two days and returned each night feeling happily exhausted, lovely to snuggle up by the fire on the comfy couches with a wine or two. The guesthouse has a lot of character with plenty of... More
