Value for money: We paid just under $100 for a Friday night for a Double Room (with Sofa) which is pretty good for Blue Mountains prices, from memory is was similar price to getting a double room with private bathroom at the Blue Mountains YHA. Breakfast is $15 pp but we didn't eat there. There's lots of nice cafes on the main street instead.
Location: Located just opposite the train station, it's very close to the main street with lots of cafes and a restaurants. Downside is there's a freight train that goes past, what seems like, every hour that's pretty loud. There's also a bit of 'human' noise after hours from the pubs close by.
Rooms: Rooms are pretty average but clean. The building (and rooms) are really old and basic but i think that's a part of it's charm. The bed is pretty small but comfortable. There's no air conditioning but there's a oil heater for the cold. The bathroom is clean but again very basic, no toiletries besides soap. Overall, the room was ok, no 'wow' factor but it was passable for a night's sleep. The really annoying thing was the windows. They were the old sliding up/down ones and they would vibrate in the wind making a banging noise against the frame, unfortunately it was a really windy night !
Other features: there's a 'games' room with tennis table and pool table, small library, and a few parking spots out the back.
Overall, it's not exactly flash but it's good if you are looking for somewhere cheap for a one night stay.
