My partner and I enjoyed a lovely and comfortable stay here last weekend. Whilst the weather was freezing, the heaters were already on in our room when we arrived, electric blankets were on timer so we woke up nice and toasty. The lady on reception was really helpful and told us all the best places to go for views, drinks... More

We stayed here in Winter and the heating was fantastic. The reception staff were very nice; friendly and helpful. We had a family room with two separate bedrooms. The suite was fully equipt with a microwave, fridge, toaster and kettle. The shower was amazing - like having a massage. The location is fantastic for the Three Sisters; the scenic drive... More

Wow what can I say? What an amazing place to stay! Arrived on a very cold and windy day to be told the heater had been turned on for us, room was comfy for 2 adults 2 children and a teenager. It's the small touches that made us love this place, big soft blankets on the bed, perfect to wrap... More

We came up from Sydney for my husbands birthday and had a very relaxing stay. The couple that run the motel are extremely nice and very welcoming. Our room was very neat and tidy and the bathroom was really nice. It is a little bit out of katoomba main street but it only took us 15 minutes to walk. It... More

I usually stay closer to town, though it was an easy 2 min drive back to town, could have walked though it was very cold! When I arrived 10 mins after booking over the ph, the manager informed me he turned the lights and heater on, how cool! To walk into a warm and lit room after a day on... More

Surprisingly quiet given it is so close to the highway. Simple, clean rooms and very friendly service. Inexpensive with a good breakfast. It was very cold at Katoomba so we were delighted that they had turned on the heater in the room well before we arrived. Free wifi but it seems you need to log in every time you open... More

Wanted an affordable overnight stay in the Blue Mountains area and came across this place online, having one family room left. Easy to find location but not right in Katoomba, so you'd want a car to get around. Quick drive to Katoomba Main Street and main sights. Older style family motel all rooms on single level with car parking directly... More

My husband and I traveled to the blue mountains for some R&R and we found this motor inn through Tripadvisor. The place is easy to find, the rooms very clean and the staff are very polite. Only downside would be the Internet was very slow but when you are up in the blue mountains, you are too busy enjoying the... More

We checked in at around 6:30 and were pleasantly surprised. We just wanted somewhere quiet and comfortable and for one night only were not wanting to pay too much. The Sky Rider ticked all these boxes and was even better than we hoped for. All the rooms are in a line one room deep with wide parking spaces at the... More
