4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Ideally placed for many nearby attractions of the Blue Mountains, (which are nothing short of breath-taking). The premise was clean and simple, good value for fee charged including continental breakfast. Service with a smile and readily assisted with tourist questions of where to go for evening meals and sights nearby. Travelled with a family of four including two teenagers, the family room was a little tight on space but manageable for short stays.

The location is just at the edge of town although it is still along the main street in Katoomba about 10 minutes walk to down town. The 3 sisters view point ia about 7 minutes walk from the hotel. In short, it's an execellent location. The hotel itself is very clean and comfy, we arrived before the the customary 2 pm check- in and we were allowed to check-in as the room already clean and tidy. We did not have breakfast in the hotel as we wanted to try the restaurant at downtown Katoomba. It was a pleasant stay and will stay here again should we ever come again to the Blue Mountain.

My wife and I stayed there over Easter. Good location (very close to the Three Sisters, not too far from the town centre of Katoomba), and good value for the price. Clean, comfortable rooms, and the continental breakfast was nice. While we stayed there, the staff even put chocolate Easter eggs outside everyone's room during the night, which my wife and thought was a nice touch. Would definitely stay there again.

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!
