We booked Jemby as it looked like a reasonably place away from the hustle of Katoomba but we were pleasantly surprised just how lovely it was. The accommodation is indeed a little worn but its comfy and spacious and incredibly good value. The really special thing is the setting - nestled in the beautiful woodland you can spot numerous beautiful... More

Accommodation: Positive: Great quiet location, nice nature, nice cabin, nice Japanese bath, nice shoji screen doors, nice fireplace, plenty of wood, comfortable bed, good to see rotaloo in action. Negative: A bit expensive given staff is mostly off-site. Food packs: Unfortunately we experienced a case of overpricing. We paid for $150 for two breakfast hampers and one BBQ pack. We've... More

Thank you again for your feedback. Our accommodation prices are very competitive and are actually one of the lowest in the Blue Mountains. We are an Eco Lodge & do not operate a Hotel / Motel 24 hour front reception desk. Jemby is unique, and we want to give our guests the impression they are on their own private secluded... More

We used to stay here every year in the spring school holidays, but hadn't returned since it had been under new management. We were pleased to find it was still a lovely spot and perfect accommodation for the mountains, with the fireplace and bush setting. The office shuts early (4pm), so would have been nice if the included bbq pack... More

Dear Cary7, Thank you for your feedback. It is lovely to hear reviews from our return guests. We are open 8 hours Mon - Sat and to keep our prices competitive we do close at 4pm, with staff contactable after hours, if needed. The reasoning behind our hours we have found over the years that most guests come by reception... More

We visited Jemby-Rinjah with friends from Hong Kong. Definitely the place to visit in Winter with the fireplace going and rooms being kept warm and toasty. We enjoyed our cabin. The kids loved the bunk beds, the kitchen had just what we needed. The bird feeding was an experience never to forget, plus the BBQ we had on the 2nd... More

Stayed for 2 nights at Jemby-Rinjah in May with family visiting from the UK. We found the cabin wonderfully cosy and peaceful, and equipped with all the basic stuff we needed. Wood burning stove was fantastic - we spent one evening just relaxing around it watching a DVD borrowed from reception which was handy! Particularly enjoyed the opportunity to hand-feed... More

While the location is secluded the individual cabins or lodges are quite close to each other so not quite the feeling of isolation that we expected. Close driving distance to all the favourite look outs and walking trails in the area.

Stayed in a deluxe cabin, a bit roomier than the smaller ones, with a Japanese style plunge spa, gowns and a bottle of wine provided. The cabin was kept warm by the slow combustion stove, which was going when we arrived, and extremely warm upstairs in the sleeping area. Very basic kitchen facilities, but all we needed for a couple... More

We have just spent two nights in one of the cabins. It is a very peaceful environment and close to bush walks. It is Eco-friendly but the cabins could do with some TLC. The fire is lovely and cosy and the cabins are comfortable and reasonably spacious but not worth what was charged. There is no storage or hanging space... More
