Myself and my partner had an excellent time when we stayed at the Jenolan Caves House. The vicinities were clean and the staff were kind enough to move us closer to the bathrooms. Food and travel guides were great. Definitely recommend.

Remember that Caves House was built 100 yrs ago,and has NO TV OR INTERNET in the rooms,even the radio didnt work and there's no TV lounge. I think next time I'll get the shared bathroom deal as its ok and much cheaper. 4 power outlets in my room were broken,so keep trying them all. The hallway is creaky but the... More

Scott and Stewie took us on the mammoth tour, it was a great exeperience but not for the faint of heart. Amazing tour guides and worth every cent. My husband and I have now done every cave opened to the public at Jenolan and will be back again for Jubilee when it opens.

Our room at Caves House was comfortable and large and a surprise. We thought we would only have an iron and ironing board as well as large double bed, but there was room for a small table and 2 chairs and a spare single bed and proper wardrobe and wash basin. Jug and cups and coffee and tea were provided... More

I chose to stay at caves house knowing the age of the building and the heritage factor appealed to me. I was not looking for modern amenities etc. I was disappointed however in the flaking, peeling paint and amount of mould in the bathroom ceiling.

This review is for the Cafe at Caves House, not the accomodation. What a disapointment. My advise is stop anywhere else before you get here. If you think like we did, and got there early to sit around having a coffee and breakfast before you start, you will bw very dissapointed. Same if you are thinking of having lunch at... More

Nice to be behind the main house and away from people and traffic. Nothing fancy, but sopt on for us - the house is about 4 floors of about... More

We stayed in the Traditional guestroom which was adequate. How ever, the plumbing or heating made weird noises and was quiet noisy at 6am, you could hear other guests through the walls quiet easily. The shared amenities were clean but very old and there was only one shower and one toilet in the shared amenities near our room. The building... More

We stayed at an apartment at the lodge which was quite comfortable. The kitchenette was average but the bathroom was cold as was the room when we arrived. We ate at the dining room which was typical of the time and everyone was very friendly.
