From the moment we laid eyes on the property from a distance away, we knew we were going to love it. And we did. As we stepped through the front door we were immediately taken by the art-lined walls flanking the rooms and reception. Contemporary art, aboriginal art, botanical drawings and modern pieces have been tastefully curated by owner David.... More

I stayed here last year and just remembered I haven't written a review!! We stayed here in December and had the most amazing time. There was a group of photographers staying at the same time, and then there was me and my family. As we were the only other group there, we were treated like royalty, and the beautiful hosts... More

We are locals and this is the 3rd time we have dined here on either a Friday or Saturday evening. We often came here in the 1990's when the Chalet was owned by different people and it hold some special memories for us. Notwithstanding that David and his partner have certainly kept and improved the feel of the dining room.... More

We stayed for a night over the Anzac day public holiday and were surprised there were still rooms at such short notice. No regrets with our choice. It's in a quiet neighbourhood in the Blue Mountains away from the touristy areas of Katoomba and Leura which meant it was in a lovely peaceful setting. Although you probably want to have... More

Five couples stayed at this guesthouse for the weekend. It was great, despite the very cold weather that came early. There are lovely rooms to lounge around in if you want to stay inside. Handy to everything, yet tucked away in Medlow bath. Dinner is recommended in the dining room. The salmon, beef and desserts were very good. Have booked... More

We only stayed for one night at the Chalet Guesthouse, but I wish we had stayed longer. It's close enough for a short drive to the tourist attractions of Katoomba, yet located in a relaxing, peaceful setting. The guesthouse itself is full of artworks, some of which were created by one of the owners, as well as antiques and other... More

We have stayed here twice and had a wonderful stay both times. The hosts are lovely people, good to talk to, helpful and fun, but not at all intrusive. The artwork throughout the chalet is amazing - paintings, drawing, ceramics and more. The rooms are beautifully set up, big claw-footed baths are devine and breakfast is really good (plunger coffee,... More

Chose this place for a 1 night stay in the Blue Mountains - and absolutely loved it. On arrival, we had a free room upgrade as they weren't full. Gorgeous room full with wonderful paintings.
