The magnificent trees and the veteran verandas of the country garden at Avonleigh House are a plus in this part of Katoomba township, where mansions and cottage gardens survive into modern times. The floorboard has creaks and the carpets have threads which can be overlooked in favour of the total elegant/earthy Katoomba-ness. The antique air and the last-century eclecticism are... More

I'm just about to leave Avonleigh after a delightful three night stay. This was my first solo trip ever and this was the perfect place to stay. The accommodation has old school charm (lace curtains, wooden furniture etc) but modern technology (flatscreen TVs and bathroom fittings). There's a loungeroom with a roaring fireplace, a shared fridge and a microwave. There's... More

My partner and I had such a great stay at this cosy, comfortable and welcoming hotel. Just a short walk to the three sisters and a short drive to the town centre. The manager was friendly and accommodating, great ambience in the common area, all in all an enjoyable trip!

Avonleigh Country House is perfect for people like us wanting something just out of the middle of town but also perfect distance in exploring the area. On arrival Matt was fantastic in guiding us to information about the area as well as 'must dos'. This was so helpful. Our room was clean comfortable and cosy. Great heating and very homely.... More

Regular traveller and first review on this site. I'm fairly easy going and unless facilities are poorly kept and obviously unclean, or where staff show an obvious disregard for customers, then I'm fairly tolerant.. I think. Last night we had booked a room on lastminute.com for the Avonleigh at Katoomba.Katoomba was very heavily booked that night. We were literally visiting... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for three nights. Our room had a bed, bathroom, closet, heater, TV, tables and chairs. It had a classic and cosy feel to it. Matthew showed us around and made us feel welcome. Upon arrival he gave us maps and showed us places to go on these maps. He showed us to the common... More

The room was lovely, beds very comfortable and warm as was the room. Bathroom was quite large and relatively clean. Matthew greeted us at the door and helped with our bags both into the hotel and to the room on check in and check out. He was extremely helpful with where things where located and other insider info for Katoomba.... More

Friendly, cosy environment with basic necessities, shared lounge area, free parking, walking distance to tourist attractions and restaurants. Comfortable rooms. Heritage listed house with a lovely host. Would suit couples or singles wanting a quiet retreat away from the hustle and bustle.

This hotel was very beautiful from the outside, and the same inside - reminding us of an old and charming country house. The room was very spacious and large, and the decor was fantastic. We felt right at home straight away. Free Wi-Fi was a nice bonus too! The service was outstanding, with Matthew spending the time to explain with... More

I booked the hotel mainly because of availability and price range. I was booking for friends who were on a budget. I rang prior to booking to check a few things and Matthew was really helpful, mentioning the location, access to restaurants and of course the 'sights' of the Blue Mountains. The hotel is what I expected - an older... More
