We arrived Sunday around Lunchtime and the Host Sue directed us to a lovely warm cafe in Katoomba called The Common Ground for lunch. It was within walking distance of Melba House. It served great European style food and moderately priced. On a cold winter day it had us feeling we were on a holiday.
My room was called Dame Joan, Edwardian in style, very comfortable with a lounge area TV and DVD player with a refrigerator to store a bottle of wine for a pre dinner drink.. The Queen size bed gave me an excellent sleep. The furnishing were very rich and I felt I was having a a real treat.
There was choice for breakfast which was hot and delivered on time.
Sue gave us good ideas to explore Katoomba and the Blue Mountains. There are two tourist buses that have the hop on hop off system which was an easy way to get around as we did not have a car. Sue collected us from Katoomba Station and delivered us back when we departed. I would recommend Melba House for a Romantic short break or a place to stay with friends
