We stayed at the Clarendon guest house during the school holidays for one night while my husband had to come up to Katoomba for work. This was the only place left in the area that had a large enough room to cater for us and our 3 children. I had read the reviews and it was what it said, a... More

My friend and I stayed in a budget room (1 bed, shared bathroom). Very cheap only cost $150 for 2 nights. Room was small but clean. Breakfast was a basic continental style. Very central location, right next to main street and a short walk to echo point and scenic world (great if you have no car!) Friendly staff.

We walked into the lounge area with a fire going which was welcoming. We stayed in a motel room upstairs which was clean and warm thankfully as it was mid winter and zero degrees that night. The overall state of the place though is crying out for a good clean up and makeover, building materials laying around, weeds in pots,... More

We stayed at the motel side and were able to park (foc) right outside our room, even though the hotel was fully occupied, it being the Winter magic Festival. The room was spacious enough- note, however, that we had to book a 3 bed room, as it was the only room left. It was warm enough, and the linens and... More

Arrived at Lodge and checked in to cold bedrooms. Our room had a small oil heater which was insufficient for the size room. The other bedroom had a split system that was either off or on at 28 degrees. The beds had electric blankets. The beds had a mish mash of blankets and duvets and the mattresses were extremely hard.... More

We laughed when we arrived because it wasn't much to look at but after two nights sitting by the fire we both agreed we would happily book here again! It was like a subdued faulty towers. Lots of personality and very good value. Our room was very small but there were plenty of spaces in the house itself to relax... More

pathetic. the room we saw online is nothing like the shoe box they stuck us in. would never stay there again even if it was free. we were suppose to have a bungalow style room with 4 posted bed and beautiful ensuite, at least that's what the picture showed and description, instead we got a dingy little room

Spent Ultra Trail Australia weekend in one of the Clarendon motel rooms and was very satisfied with it, room was spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable. Very basic but perfect for what i needed it for a place to sleep after running the 50km ultra marathon. Two things needed addressing though in room 2. Shower head needs replacing when i turned...

Nice friendly staff and the room was clean enough. Everything in the room squeaked as did everything in the room above so no sleep ins. The TV worked intermittently and the remote didn't work at all. All this could be forgiven however if the mattress didn't feel like we were sleeping on a piece of timber. Great location close to... More
