“A good stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

A good value simple 3-3.5 star park-your-car-in-front-of-your-room old school motel. Clean, warm and simple with a contintental breakfast with decent coffee thrown in for the price. Convenient close walking location to the major sights Katoomba is known for. Free efficient wifi. Friendly service.

A good night's sleep and I would happily stay there again for $135 a night. I notice that some people complain about 3-3.5 star places because they are not 4.5 star quality? Suggest they pay twice as much for somewhere that has that extra star (and then can perhaps complain about how expensive it is!).

My husband booked this for my birthday weekend, I was ready to pack up and go back home soon after checking in. It was very tired and small, the bathroom was a total joke! What motel has the individual boxes of loose loo paper these days??? A room with a queen or King bed was requested but we ended up with a double bed and our son was in a single no more than about 45cm away from us.
The provisions were very limited all the way around, there was no hand towel or hairdryer.

I would not recommend this motel to anyone ever!

Best part was the staff, extremely welcoming and friendly and was very helpful with maps and local information. The motel is clean and tidy, but could do with a bit of renovation. It is just by the 3 sisters but a long walk from town.

This was a stop over on our way to Sydney for medical treatment, it was cold, raining cats & dogs and our son was sick - so we could have been in a better frame of mind.
Anyway, the motel - its decked out nicely on the outside and looks clean and tidy, the breakfast room is great and the continental breakfast was good. But inside the rooms, the bed was average to uncomfortable, the bathroom needs a refurbishment and some updated plumbing and for the money I expected just a bit better. It is really close to the 3 Sisters though!

Only stayed for two nights but very pleased with accommodation, it was clean and tidy. The weather at the time was freezing but our room and bed was warm and snug.
Staff were very helpful and polite.
The location is ideal to get to all areas and only ten mins walk from the three sisters which we went to see at night all lit up amazing.

The first impression driving in was: It needs a bit of TLC. The outside is a tired and needs some work to be done (windows and doors have quite a drought..).
Our Family room was renovated and had modern furniture. The beds were comfortable and the heating in the room was a blessing. (The bathroom could have done with heating as well.)
The size of our room was a bit small and we only had 3 chairs for a family of 4 (but there was no more space any way).
The Continental Breakfast was included and the Coffee just delicous! Thank you for not serving Instant Coffe!!!!
The location is perfect but we were unlucky with the weather (rain and total cloud cover, couldn't even see a glimpse of the Three Sisters). We visited the Jenolan Caves instead, which were fantastic!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Recently my husband and I had 2 nights here. We have stayed there a couple of years ago and went back because it was in a great location, very reasonably priced with a good continental breakfast.We were dissapointed that the room we had was even more tired and shabby than last time we were there. It is such a pity because otherwise it would be a very comfortable unit with an amazing location- within a few minutes walk of the "3 Sisters" mountains and entrance to Skycable.
The dining room is modern and a good continental breakfast included in the price. All this place needs is a little refurbishment to make it so much better! New carpets and replacing the mirrors and toilets in the bathroom would make an enormous difference.
