This is the only motel in the area....so they can pretty much charge what they want....and they do. $160 a night is well off the pace....this is a 90 to 100 a night place. Major and busy highway outside the door, railway just beyond that. It IS noisy at night. Only vertical blinds which ensure your up early. Some heavy... More

Rooms very well maintained, clean and comfortable if a little small. Fine for a short stay. Comfie bed and and even though located on the highway and across from the railway line, we were not troubled by noise. Staff very helpful and friendly. Short easy drive to Springwood for plenty of eating options.

We spent several nights at this motel. The rooms were clean with all the standard items you need it a motel. NOISE was the issue. All through the night the trains and trucks were going pass. The train line is across the highway. The motel is on the highway. The motel staff said there is train line works going on... More

We stayed overnight en route, but pre-booked. The welcome was somewhat off-hand. The unit was small, especialy the bathroom, but adequate. It was also very clean and smelled of disinfectant. I was concerned about the noise of traffic on the adjacent highway, but need not have been. The motel has no dining room, but breakfast is available as room service.... More

We stayed here for one night to go to a party nearby. The room we booked had a kitchenette and was clean and of a good size. The bed was comfortable and warm. Don't make the mistake I did of leaving the air on because it was a cold night. I woke up boiling and had to turn it off.The... More

This hotel is centrally located in the mid Blue Mountains. It is a little basic but very clean, and the family room was great for us. Our room was towards the back of the hotel and we didn't get any road noise at all. The best thing about the hotel though is the staff - they were welcoming, friendly and... More

This motel was the only available motel at the last minute so whilst we would have preferred to stay in Leura this was our option. It was a nice motel with a great heater and had everything we needed. It is on the highway so easy to find and is about 20 minutes to Leura or Katoomba. We did have... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Room small, but spotlessly clean and the bed was very comfortable. Convenient location in the lower Blue Mountains. This IS NOT a scenic spot - your view is the highway at the front and a tiny lawn at the back, but its good for an overnight stop on a long journey. Only downside is a... More
