My girlfriend and I made a last minute choice to visit Katoomba to have a breather from the city. Being both very active people we managed to squeeze in some incredible vintage/op shopping (so many interesting shops in the town centre for those vintage enthusiasts!) and enjoy some nature walks without feeling rushed. After knocking on the reception door a... More

Paul and Jenny really set up a wonderful lovely place to be. I stayed for three nights but could have spent easily a few more had I had the time. Thank you Jenny for the superb breakfast. Thank you Paul for the excellent Wine tour over to Dryridge - I will not forget the Rosé that didn't survive the afternoon... More

The decor is very dated but I guess that just adds to it's originality. It is certainly not a modern suite. You could tell the owners though had gone to a lot of effort to make sure guests are comfortable. From complementary chocolates and port to hot chocolate instead of the basic tea and coffee. There is no air conditioning... More

We had a beautiful room, very spacious with a sofa, table and chairs, separate kitchen and bathroom with spa but it still feels cosy. Great attention to detail, the place has everything you need to relax and is also a very short walk to the three sisters and all the great bush walks. There is a nice restaurant across the... More

We booked this through booking.com having read the reviews. Excellent place to stay to explore the blue mountains. We did not have a car for some of our stay but were able to walk to Echo Point, enjoy Katoomba and did the cliff top walk to Leura. Shelton-Lea was a lively place to stay. Nothing was too much trouble fir... More

We only stayed for one night in Katoomba with our German friends, and despite the weather not allowing us to see any of the three sisters, our accommodation was perfect. Paul easily recommended fantastic pizza which was promptly delivered and enjoyed with a bottle or two of wine. The rooms we stayed in had everything we needed, and the continental... More

My hubby and I stay here for 1 night during our visit to the blue mountains. It's a quaint little old house with all lots of little added extras we didn't expect. The owners have thought of everything. The accommodation is very old but kept well. It's a 10 mins walk to the 3 sisters viewing area, and a 20... More

We were so lucky to get the rear studio unit for our stay in Katoomba. It is a cozy and inviting little apartment, and every thoughtful thing you can imagine is provided in the room, from wine and sherry, to a canister of cookies, to juice, milk, and fresh fruit in the fridge. Great little kitchenette, fresh baked goods waiting... More

The B&B was cosy, a real holiday house. Everything was done to make us having a nice feeling. Jenny and Paul took very good care of us, by adding drinks, fruit, etc... to the fridge everyday, spoling us with cakes when we got home at the end of the day,...

This is everything you want in a B&B. Cannot speak of this place highly enough. They have thought of everything. Food and wine were great. Echo point and centre of town are within 10mins walking distance. I will recommend this place to everyone who heads up to Katoomba.
