A delightful old convent which could be a delightful place to stay. Instead, the owner's mean attitude takes away from the historic feel of the place. No log fire, poor breakfast, lots of rules written everywhere. This may have suited the nuns, but if you're looking for a warm, welcoming, generous B & B in the Mountains, look elswhere!

Grabbed the mid-week special (good value) and were allocated a room at the rear of Leura House. The room, Number 7, overlooked the garden and there was only a little noise from the Great Western Highway and railway line. Nothing to worry about. The room was adequately furnished with a very comfortable bed and plenty of drawer space. It was... More

We were lucky to get a midweek special in early May - so for the price, I was pleasantly surprised by the super-comfy queen bed, large room, spotless bathroom, and views over the garden and the Blue Mountains. We loved the Victorian feel of the building, and the comfortable lounge area, and the internet worked well. The only negatives were... More

We paid top dollars as it was Easter weekend (I do understand that this is going to be more expensive. Bed very hard. Decor very sad and dated. I requested gluten free bread for breakfast, but they had neglected to provide any saying that the shops had been shut the day before so they hadn't purchased any. The breakfast was... More

We arrived to find the appearance of the building did not match the photo, clearly it had been taken some time ago. We were welcomed by the owner who was more officious than friendly and provided a tired overview of the history. We were bustled up to our room and given brief instructions on how to get in and out... More

First point - dont bother turning up before 2pm because the office is not open. We stayed in February and it was very hot in the rooms. No airconditioning and no fan. Breakfast is only served between 8:30 and 09:30 so its very restrictive. Saying that the breakfast wasnt great, hard poached eggs, bacon and tomato. The back garden is... More

If you're looking for a modern, sterile, chain Hotel with all the modern conveniences and frills, this is definitely not for you. This hotel is beautifully situated within easy walking distance, and just a few minutes walk away from the head of the main street in Leura. The house carries a lot of history - being the first house to... More

Lovely old guest house but its conducted for the owner not the guests. Doesn't have breaky till 08:30 and if you arrive at 08:25 he sends you away. He doesn't like people and if he is not happy with something (no matter how insignificant) he lets you know. We were locked out of our room and had to sleep in... More

It's a huge house and unfortunately our room was the highest which meant lots of stairs to climb with 2 heavy cases. The room despite being described as executive was very basic with old mis matched furniture. They also don't supply hand towels in the bathroom. There is no air conditioning either but we were given a fan. Wifi just... More

My wife and I just spent two nights and we found Gary to be a great host. He shared with us places to go see and he was very obliging. The room was well kept and very comfortable.It was nice to stay there because we like old charm type places and it was really handy to Leura and other places... More
