Very welcoming and helpful staff. Aircon was on in the room when we got there so it was nice and toasty. Clean room and bathroom, serviced by cleaners while we were out which we were not expecting given our short stay. Reasonably priced and tasty breakfast on offer. 5 min drive to town centre, inexpensive cab ride for those not... More

This was a lovely, intimate place to stay for 2 nights. The rooms were clean and the bed was most comfortable. The amenities included coffee, cream, cookies and fridge. The host was a very personable gentlemen and very interesting to talk with. He spoke extensively about his travels throughout Australia. The part I liked the most was the motel's restaurant... More

Stayed for one night as a couple on our way through to Jenolan Caves. Room was clean and bedding was modern. Bathroom looked recently updated and clean. Heater worked a treat as it was pretty cold throughout the night. Close to the town centre only about a 3 minute drive. Check in and check out process was easy. Had a... More

Perfect location to walk to most of what you want to see. Nothing was too much trouble. I'll be back. The room had every thing you needed and electric beds. I had one small issue that was sorted instantly, old fashion service, like visiting family. Thanks

We stayed here 2 nights in mid-August. We arrived after dark, on a rainy night to find a very cold room with no heat turned on, and as it turned out a window window wide open, so even when we turned the heat on while we went out for dinner, the room didn't warm up at all. It was about... More

My partner and I are from Sydney, we stayed 2 nights here mid week, the room was very clean and well maintained and the front desk reception staff member was lovely and very helpful. We would definitely choose to stay here again next time we visit Katoomba

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
