We ended up staying 1 night at Gearin during the Easter holiday, because every other place in Katoomba was booked.
The rooms are substandard (that's an understatement), the service is horrible and the whole environment is just disgusting. My room smelled of mould/fungi/smoke, the sheets were not clean, the extra blanket was from 1965 and probably never washed. There's a pub downstairs which means that you can't really sleep before 1 AM. The clients of the pub could be an interesting subject for anthropologists.
I could go on, but to be honest, there are no words to describe this experience. I will never ever go near that place.
