Whilst staying at Medlow Bath a few of us decided to pop into Katoomba for a drink and maybe a bite to eat. We found a car park near the the old Carrington Hotel. Well... lucky we did. What a magnificent old Lady. This is a hotel 'not to be missed'. From the famous stained glass facade to the multi... More

My partner and I stayed at The Carrington before and after walking The Six Foot Track. It is only a very short walking distance from the railway station and it is well situated to allow easy walking access to the shops, cafes and restaurants of Katoomba. Our room was generously sized with a large ensuite, a spa bath and a... More

The place is astounding and marvelously stands out in this modern day. A very antique class of sophistication. I loved the place it is clean and lovely view on the top with a class of an old time 5 star hotel that until now staff are preserving the rate. My Fiance proposed to me in this place :)

It is located just a stones throw from the local Railway station and can be easily walked too if catching public transport.

The Carrington gets by on it's visual appeal. It's a grand old Dame, at least by Australian standards. And I do like that about it. If I wanted an uber modern experience I'd stay somewhere else. However, it's not exactly cheap. It seems to be busy every time I've stayed, but I don't know where the money is going, certainly... More

Located at the top of the hill in Katoomba Street and a stone's throw from the railway station, the Carrington Hotel is easy walking distance to shops and eateries. The hotel first opened in the 1880s and has had highs and lows through its years of trading. It has had ongoing renovations since around 2000 which has brought back much... More
