Very conveniently located in the heart of Katoomba, shops and tourist attractions within walking distance. Good hotel breakfasts, didn't try other meals though. Fridge included in double room. Games room included cards, table tennis and pool ($1 with some repeat pool balls). Spacious rooms and showers and good cleaning. Overall everything a hotel should be, the stay was very enjoyable

Very convenient. Next to the station, close to the three sisters, Gordon falls, leura and Laura cascades, katoomba falls and the town. Laundry facilities on site as well as an iron. Fridge in the room. No microwave. The only downside was that bits of the room had clearly not been cleaned in a while as my bedside table had a... More

We stayed on a Cudo 3 days 2 night package with lots of inclusions and discount deals. It was a Christmas present and a wonderful one. Beautiful room with a nice outlook. The Guest House feeling from the thirties has been preserved perfectly with freshness and a notable absence of any mustiness. The games room, library and lounge areas are... More

I have always wanted to stay here - I'm a sucker for leadlight windows and Art Deco style. It was lovely to find that the hotel is also clean with excellent facilities and nice-sized rooms. The lady at the front desk was just lovely and free wifi was another nice bonus. It's handy to the station and the main strip... More

This is a genuine 1920's hotel. Think Agatha Christie - but without the murders. It's been renovated tastefully. Staff work hard to keep the place clean and tidy. And it shows. Great fun. Close to town and station. This is the only issue - you will experience train noise. Wear ear plugs if it bothers you and sit back and... More

The Metropole was an amazing place to stay in the Blue Mountains. Not only is it clean and only 2 minutes walk from the train station and the hop on bus pick up places and pizza joints, Italian and French arteries etc etc, we had the most amazing room for our family of 8 stayed: an apartment with 4 bedrooms...

This is a truly excellent Guest House. They have enhanced & retained 1930s charm, the rates are very reasonable, and even on a hot day, there is coolness in the games room & "Jessies corner" an alcove with period seating that remembers former guests & owners. Time slows down here so much you expect a silver haired Eistein to shuffle... More

We loved the family room here. This hotel is well located to train station and excellent food eating places. The room was comfortable and warm. The car parking was handy and you could do laundry if needed. Great budget guesthouse with real ambience

We loved the old athmosphere of this place, entering the hotel really feels like travelling in time. Everything in there is pretty old or at least looks like it. But in a good way, it was also very clean. Our bed was comfy and the bathroom was clean as well. For the price of 75$ (promotion price on booking platform)... More

I had paid for an accommodation package for this guest house with Scoopon and had paid in full, months before our date of arrival. Upon arrival to this guest house, a staff member there was less than friendly and was quite rude in adamantly stating that I had a fine print $50.00 surcharge to pay, as we had apparently "booked...
