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.... 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!
