Very impressed with the accomodation, neat, clean well presented & external bbq facilities are clean & extremely well maintained. Kids are happy with the free supply of board games. Warm & cosy with friendly helpful owners/staff. Wifi service available. Close to village centre and popular attractions.

Stayed one night with my husband as part of our weekend away. It was clean and comfortable accommodation for the 2 of us with good sized bathroom. The breakfast served at the dining room was also lovely. The dining area had a lovely set up. Staff were nice. It was a nice quiet place to stay away from the town... More

We chose Sky Rider because they were one of those rare places offering less than two nights' stay. We only needed one night...so we booked the room and thought: "Well no matter what the place is like, it's just for one night..." Sky Rider was PERFECT! Warm, comfortable, quiet and with everything we needed. Next time, we'll stay for at... More

Stayed for one night as part of visiting the Blue mountains on a week long Sydney holiday driving in from Sydney that day in a family of 5. Very comfortable space for 5 people to sleep although that does make it tight for luggage which we did not mind at all. In fact, they still had a small 4 person... More

Great Motel in Katoomba. Isn't the central but we had a car so no problem. Room is clean and comfy. Breakfast was basic but nice enough. The pool was lovely and refreshing. A bargain price! Easy check in and out. A 2 min drive to town and a few min to scenic world. Would def recommend

The staff are very friendly and helpful with information on the area such as great places to eat and breathtaking local scenic drives. The rooms had been recently refurbished and was spotlessly clean, which makes a world of difference. The breakfast was lovely, with a great selection of food served in the dining room. I would highly recommend staying. 😊

We stayed here just for one night, but definitely wish we stayed longer. We stayed in the Superior Queen room which was well priced and definitely exceeded expectations. The room was excellent and comfortable and the heater was already on when we arrived! The bed also had electric blankets so we were never cold. The motel itself is perfectly positioned,... More

Great one night stay in a clean family room. The heater was on ready for us. The beds were comfy and we slept well. Happy and helpful reception. The Main Street was full of places to eat. It was about one kilometre away. Thanks.
