My boyfriend and I booked to stay at the beautiful Shelton-Lea B & B for 2 nights mainly because of the close proximity to the blue mountains but also the rave reviews on trip advisor. And for the latter, we could 100% see why. Our quaint yet spacious bedroom, bathroom and living room/kitchenette (leading onto a pretty balcony) was simply...

This B&B is located almost opposite the excellent Pins on Lurlin. The location is great as it is minutes from Scenic World and the Three Sisters lookout point. The accommodation was very clean and cosy with a gas heater to keep the rooms warm and complimentary port - perfect for those cold nights. We got the front rooms beside the...

The Shelton-Lea B&B offers a peaceful setting with clean, well-appointed rooms and a delightful continental breakfast. We received excellent advice on sightseeing options and restaurants. An excellent base for a Blue Mountains trip.

We had a marvelous stay here. The Amaroo Suite is spacious and atmospheric. Wonderful hosts. If you like B&Bs, you would have trouble doing better. Wonderful reading chairs next to the fireplace. Port for the evenings. A baked good in the afternoons. All the amenities you would expect. Great four-post bed.

Had a wonderful stay on 13/14 November. Stayed in the Amaroo Suite which had heaps of room, great facilities and it was the little things - fruit, home made muesli, cookies, port, chocolates etc etc - that made the stay memorable. Paul was very helpful for anything we needed. Will definitely stay again.

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....
