“My Favourite Place to Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2011

We have been going to the Carrington at least once a year, every year, for the past 10 years. It provides such a sense of old world charm and luxury at a reasonable price. The only rooms we haven't tried are the Traditional rooms and have not been disappointed. The staff are friendly and helpful about the local and immediate surronds with knowledge of places to see and go to eat. We have, through the years encouraged our friends to stay at the hotel and they too report of pleasant and happy stays. We look forward to our next visit in June 2011.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2011

We stayed in one of the rooms with shared bathroom facilities for one night over the Easter weekend - the shared bathrooms have quite a boarding school feel and might not be for all, but we thought they did the job! The bed was comfortable and the hotel is quite an impressive heritage building - just dont expect 5 star modern luxury, as this isnt the place

We got a room on wotif for a bit over $100 and given the free parking and access to Katoomba shops/restaurants and walks we thought that was great value, given what you can pay in the Blue Mountains and the fact there was no minimum stay

We ate in their pub and the food was decent quality and well priced - worth a look

A genteel and wonderful fantasy stay in a VERY special place.
You will come away refreshed and exhilerated.
You will have experienced true service...so rare these days.
The wonderful old building oozes character and the staff are obviously passionate about looking after it's guests in a fashion befitting the days of true service.
I hear that someone has submitted a derogative review! Oh dear you poor thing...what can I say...

Room Tip: Enloy the WHOLE hotel, not just your room!

My wife and i have stayed here a few times now and we love it, i have stayed at other hotels on the mountains but always end up back at the carrington, even if just up for the day we will go in for a drink and sit by the fire it just has such a charm about the place so i thoroughly recommend the Carrington.

Returned to the Carrington for our anniversary and again we were not disappointed. We have returned to the Carrington several times each year for our wedding anniversary and birthdays since she re-opened in 1999. We enjoy the 'old world charm', central location and privacy along with opportunity to simply 'stop'. We have stayed in a range of accommodation options ranging fom Traditional rooms to Junior Suites and Coach House, each style has it own particular charm, was exactly what we expected and suited our needs and expectations. We have always been happy with her full range of facilities, particularly the cocktail bar, new Deli/Wine Cellar and breakfast. The Carrington isn't cheap but its prices are competative compared with other Blue Moutains establishments which offer a similar experience.

Nice place, old world charm. Bathrooms really need work, they let the place down.
