It's nearly 30 years since the last time we visited the Jenolan Caves and we weren't disappointed. We stayed overnight at the Caves House and dines in the Restaurant. The accommodation was comfortable and the service and food at the Restaurant was excellent. It made the visit one to remember.

What a magnificent place. Very comfortable rooms at a very reasonable price. Food was great and I would recommend anyone visiting this area to include Caves House. Was surprised considering this is run by the government. Will definitely be returning.

Clean and comfortable with easy access to food and water. Food is quite pricey however, you might want to bring your own food to cook. Location is very good, surrounded by many scenic trails, enough to last a few days.

We booked dinner in the restaurant on a weekend (bookings essential) and were looking forward to it as it had been years since we last ate at Caves House. Our dinner was excellent The waiter was friendly, efficient and courteous. The food was outstanding. You'd think you were in some flash Sydney restaurant, not out in the bush. The atmosphere...

A walk... More

Caves and cave guides are great. The bistro is terrible. The staff watched us waiting at the counter for 15mins to buy coffees and did not even acknowledge us. Over priced and poor quality food. Luke warm coffee. Shame that they don't have some competition to make them perform better.

We stayed at Jenolan Caves House 20 years ago on our honeymoon and so it was fitting that we return. This hotel is very old and has been referred to in other reviews as “falling apart” or “run down”. If you’re looking for a modern hotel, stay elsewhere. This building has *real* history. Yes, it’s a bit shabby in places... More

Lovely historic house with tons of character & charm. The floors wind theatrically, furnishings suggests older times. Many armchair cushions need replacing and being a Sunday, the hotel was very quiet with less bustle. There was a pool table, common room and ample spots to sit quietly or write a letter. I loved walking up and down the stairs. Alas,... More
