We had a Family Room and it was perfect for our needs during our short stay. Very clean, comfortable beds, big bathroom, great breakfast at a great price and all the staff were friendly and efficient. Only minor challenge we had was the Wi-Fi kept dropping out which was quite important for our stay, but that's apparently characteristic of the... More

I enjoyed the walk from Katoomba station to the motel, which passed a few lovely antique shops and residential housing. I was going to walk the Six Foot Track and this place is perfect if you are looking for an early and quick start to the starting point. My hosts were lovely and helpful, pointing out on a map where... More

I stayed in the family room with my family, and the room was clean and comfortable. The service from the staff were very helpful. They provided a map with things to do in the area, and the best restaurants. Very reasonable pricing. Staff called us when the family room came available. Very close to amenities, and very helpful owners.

Very well priced motel. Clean and tidy. Very friendly when booked in and very helpful with information as to what is around to visit. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again. Close to the three sisters and scenic world just a few minutes drive away.

I stayed for 2 nights in a Deluxe room. It was exceptionally clean and comfortable, and was very reasonably priced, particularly compared to other accommodation choices in the Blue Mountains. The room was very quiet and had plenty of room. The couple running the place are very friendly and happily provided local information regarding sight seeing and shops etc. I... More

On arrival you are greeted by friendly staff and owners of the Motor Inn, who give you a magazine/brochure containing all the amenities available in Katoomba with a map giving you directions, and they tell the best places to see and eat. The price for the room was reasonable, with a pleasant and clean bathroom which looked as though it... More

This is our "go to" motel in Katoomba because we can always rely of friendly service, a beautifully clean room with great amenities and close proximity to Katoomba and exits to the highway but without the noise. This is the third time we've stayed here and it was just as fresh and clean as it was when we first stayed... More

Very welcoming and friendly staff. The heating turned on prior to our arrival. Room very clean and the bed most comfortable. Perfect location. Breakfast was very affordable, lovely with a great selection. We would most certainly stay here again next time we visit Katoomba.
