“The Best by Far”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2009

My wife and I stayed here for one night on the 2/07/09 and was surpised that the whole experience execeded my expectations after reading the previous reviews.

We were greeted by Peter with a warm introduction, pointed out all the facilities asked if there was anything we needed or would we like coffee or tea.

The room was large, spotlessly clean with a large bathroom and spa.

In the common area there was fruit. newspapers, maps, brochures provieded.

There was even a decanter of Port with crystal glasses in this area to warm up the soul after coming in from the cold.

Breakfast was fabulous, plenty of freshly sliced fruit, juices and a hot breakfast to die for. The now have sausages on the menu so a previous reviewer would be very happy.

To get into the main part of Katoomba is about a 15min walk and costs about $6 by Taxi.

Dislikes: Nothing ( except would have like to stay longer )

Would recommend to anyone looking for a great B&B. The best I've stayed in.

I and a friend spent two wonderful days at Lurline house and left wishing we had booked more. Great service, wonderful rooms, great location, a place you should put high on your list of hotels at which to stay.

1st time in Sydney, booked the hotel based solely on advise from tripadvisor. Booked thru the hotel web site. Reply was quick and efficient. Beautiful house, Peter was a wonderful host, giving us tips where to go and dine. Yes, tea/coffee, chocolates and cakes were served when we arrive at 10.30 am, and it is free of charge! The chocolate cake was delicious. We were given the rooms even though check in was 2pm. Breakfast was delicious! Free internet access and parking. Overall, a wonderful stay!

We had two nights at Lurline. The rooms are great. Comfortable and clean. Spa bath, Four poster bed. Very pleasant guest sitting room complete with fruit baskets and port and choice of a range of things from the kitchen which come morning converts to a kitchen where our host cooks up a storm in the form of a brilliant full English breakfast. I guess as the owner hails from Cornwall that is very apt. To top it off you can get plenty of advice where to go what to do etc. This is a very nice B&B.

We arrived late afternoon and while we went to the room Peter produced home made cakes and tea in lovely China cups, all complementary and a very relaxing and civilised way to start our stay.

We stayed in a standard room which had a lovely four poster bed. Breakfast was one of the best we have ever had (and that includes Raffles in Singapore where we stayed later on our trip).

If you stay here a good place to eat just up the road is the Gallery restaurant.

as previous reviews have said....this was the best B&B stay we have ever stayed at....Peter together with his staff were the perfect hosts. The house was warm and friendly and the breakfasts were cooked to perfection. We will certainly be back.

This is truly one of the best B&B's we have ever stayed in and I wish we had planned a longer stay. The room was elegant and comfortable and breakfast was delicious and service impeccable--makes you feel like a special guest--be sure to try the scrumptious and delicate pancakes. Even wireless internet is free. Leura is a charming town and this place is in a nice residential area, a few blocks from downtown and walking distance to the viewpoint.
Peter makes a special effort to make your stay perfect and did you know he used to manage Sheraton Hotels? Highly recommended!
