According to the literature included in the room, the venue was constructed in the 1930's as a Guest House. The subsequent uses and up grades of the property have respected the original features (other than the tennis court - now a swimming pool). As patrons, we were looking for a quiet facility where we felt we could relax whilst also taking in the highlights that the Blue Mountains have to offer. We were not disappointed. Having stayed at a number of "older" historic venues throughout Australia, we believe that this facility compares equally with them. The reading rooms contain very comfortable furniture which encourages users to take their time in reading either the daily press or to use some of the books provided for patrons use.The view from our room did not overlook the Mountains but was bathed in sunshine in the morning. The room was spacious and included a couch and free standing table. Basic tea & coffee facilities were provided and the Bathroom space was satisfactory although the tiling was showing signs of wear. Additional material on the features of the Blue Mountains area could have been included in the room. The views of the Mountains available from the Dining Room are very good and no doubt have influenced the cost of the meals (particularly when compared to those available in the town and surrounds). The staff were helpful and the gymnasium functional although the procedure to deal with the alarm could be improved. We were disappointed to find that the rooms did not include HD Televisions and were restricted to viewing the 4 main TV stations. During our stay it appeared that the number of guests were not substantial. Our stay was mid week and this may have been the reason. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and came away feeling rested and refreshed.
