The rooms are clean and comfortable and the meals and breakfast were very enjoyable and quick service. The position is excellent walkable distance to shops, coffee shops and transport. A bit of a walk from the station... More

The Palaise Royale is a charming hotel in the heart of Katoomba. It is ideally situated half way down the main street towards Echo Point. Rooms were clean, warm and pleasantly appointed giving a feel of an old world guesthouse. Some of the floors are uneven and squeaked but this just added to the charm of this very old building....

Stayed here after driving across from Hunter Valley during the day. I had done some research before our holiday and this seemed like a decent option, in hindsight I would not have stayed on Katoomba but possibly somewhere like Leura instead. Nothing wrong with this hotel but it is in the process of being renovated and updated, no building work... More

The Palais Royale was an excellent place to stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was great to relax on the lounges in the foyer while having a drink or coffee. It was close to the main shops and a short drive to some of the scenic spots.

We purchased a Tripadeal voucher for 2 nights, having to pay $80 surcharge when we booked for a Saturday night. We were pleasantly surprised by condition of hotel after reading a couple of negative reviews - sure the design and decoration is very much in keeping with the whole atmosphere of the Blue Mountains and as such, isn't the trendy...

This is a great traditional hotel. Rooms are clean and well kept. The hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The location is excellent - shops, cafes and restaurants all within walking distance. The room we had was very spacious and very good value for the rate.

Rooms were very good, staff excellent and very courteous. Loved our stay. My wife's parents spent their honeymoon here in 1944. Great location to explore Katoomba, Leura, surrouding towns and tourists sites.

We stayed here recently and would recommend it. The rooms are quite large and the place is lovely and clean. The breakfast in the mornings is excellent and there's no rush to finish. The lady serving breakfast is one of the happiest people we've met. The spa and sauna was a welcome sight after a long day exploring the many... More

I enjoyed the restored old world charm and look of this establishment with some lovely helpful mannered staff to assist as well. Very comfortable and spotlessly clean rooms and linen. The conveniences had included a scolding hot shower as required given the winter temperatures and I will stay here again given the opportunity.
