A gem to experience. So much history and charm felt like we had stepped back in time. Lovely colonial rooms so spacious with huge spa bathroom. Beautiful grand dining room, loved the art deco. Library, ballrooms, sitting rooms, charlies bar, billiard room all steeped with history. Loved the 1904 lift, though you need muscles to pull doors open. Phenomenal service... More

I stayed here for 3 nights in a traditional, no ensuite room. Rooms were nice and clean and shared bathrooms in acceptable condition. There is no better location and the bars and lounges are very comfortable and relaxing. Good continental breakfast. Loved the heritage charm. Everything solid if you are not expecting over the top and want a comfortable, value... More

Had lunch here but also checked out the rooms. The suites are amazing. Luxury personified. Staff helpful and friendly and was told all the history of the hotel which was very interesting. For that special weekend or anniversary this is the place. Right in the heart of Katooma walking distance to everything

Most comfortable accommodation and an excellent, helpful staff! The towels were the thickest and softest I have ever felt!! Even though there was a school formal on the Friday night and a wedding reception on the Saturday night we did not feel over crowded. No noise heard once inside the rooms.

Lovely, historic hotel located at the top of Katoomba street just steps away from the Katoomba train station. My four year old daughter and I stayed here three nights in the traditional section on the first floor. The traditional rooms are those that have shared bathroom facilities. That means no washroom or anything (this seemed to confuse some other guests... More

Amazing building with loads of character, especially at night. Good sized room and bathroom. Huge bed, it seemed bigger than king size somehow! But pillows were uncomfortable. All 4 pillows on the bed and the spare pillow in the cupboard were thin and lumpy making sleep uncomfortable. Didn't ask to change pillows because I figured that if all 5 in... More

This was my second visit to the restaurant after visiting in winter 2015. Wonderful food and service. The atmosphere is spot on for the Blue Mountains. The wine selection was also very good and well priced. The seafood was fresh and steak delicious. The accompanying sauces were 5 star. A must visit when in the mountains.

We went to Katoomba last year and stayed at the Carrington Hotel. Upon entry we were greeted by staff, who were wonderful. The Hotel has a beautiful old world charm about it, you feel like you've stepped back in time. A wonderful town and with the backdrop of the Blue Mountains, you couldn't ask for more.

Very impressive venue. We had a spa room on the second floor. Huge room, heating great. Modern bathroom with spa. Great location, a quick walk to all places on the main road. Friendly staff, breakfast included. We went to the Old City Bank Brasserie, great entertainment on Friday and Saturday night - just down the driveway from the accommodation.
