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

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

I am hoping I will get more sleep on the 2 hour train back to the city than last night. Despite earplugs and a pillow over our heads there was a constant loud whirry cranky noise between 1am and 5:45am. We had no idea what it was, how no-one else had brought this up before or how anyone else was... More

The leura house is stunning, but unfortunately is old world charm mixed with seventies decor. Simply put, the house oozes potential. Elegant and wooden, she sits astride a hilltop enjoying panoramic views of all the blue mountains have to offer. It's when you step inside that you understand her full potential has not been realised. Dated decor and to be... More

Just stayed a few nights in Leura House. The room was very warm and comfortable during a very cold and windy weather season.The hot breakfast was well prepared and enjoyable. All the attractions of Leura are in easy walking distance. The building and gardens are well maintained and interesting. A lovely quiet location we will definitely return.
