What a beautiful place! The hosts have thought of every little thing, from port to marshmallows to a tray of chocolates to afternoon tea on our return from a bushwalk. Our room was more of a suite, with lounge area, kitchen and dining table. All only a 5 minute walk to Echo Point and 10 minutes to Katoomba main streets.... More

Every little detail had been thought of from the choccies and port to the fresh juice and cooked breakfast and all the little bits and pieces in between. Jenny and her husband are lovely, friendly people and it's a shame we... More

My partner and I stayed here for two nights and didn't have a single thing to complain about. The rooms were clean and cosy, the beds were comfortable and the cooked breakfast brought to our room each morning was delicious. Owners Jenny and Paul were very hospitable and friendly. The location was great and would recommend this bed and breakfast... More

Luxurious rooms with a cozy fireplace lounge area. Our hosts, Jen and Paul, catered above and beyond our needs. Exceeded expectations and great value for money. Every little detail seen too; cute little afternoon teas set up for us on return, fresh fruit provided daily and a generous serving of Merlot. Lovely people, lovely place. Cannot wait to return :)

My wife and I stayed here for a week and it was one of the best weeks we have had. Paul's service and hospitality was far beyond average and the room was always extremely clean. We loved the breakfasts being available in the room at all times and so many good places nearby to see. Thanks for an amazing week!

Shelton-Lea is a lovely old home with independent self contained living areas. My wife and I had a room, kitchenette/lounge and bathroom which provided a good degree of privacy. Jenny and Paul were great hosts with a number of personal touches including fresh baked cinnamon scrolls, port and chocolates and a cooked breakfast brought to the room. Wifi was included,... More
