We stayed for three nights in a top-floor, valley-view suite. It was worth the extra to get a room which allows you to watch the evening light transform the sandstone cliffs of the national park, from the comfort of your own room. Our rooms, like the resort in general, were elegantly furnished, generous-sized and charming. The resort itself is recently-built (so you get modern plumbing), in a style which echoes the 1930's, when the Blue Mountains were many Sydney-siders' preferred escape. The bed was comfortable and sound-proofing excellent.
The staff were all welcoming, efficient and friendly. The grounds were manicured and beautifully-planted. Given the crush of tourists outside, it was a relief to have a quiet, comfortable, place to recover.
The Blue Mountains themselves however do offer wonderful landscapes to explore and the public gardens in the area are justifiably famous. Katoomba is a disappointing, rather shabby, town.
