We found this by accident but were pleasantly surprised. It is not a fancy place but quite comfortable and within walking distance to stores, restaurants and the RSL is right next door. You can walk to Echo Point from here but it is about 20 minutes or so walk.
It was very reasonable cost and suited us just fine. We stayed one night.

Room Tip: great location

For the price it was pretty good considering we get our own spacious room en suite toilet. Everything was clean, basic with some random stuff at the cupboard for coffee. The water boiler was the only thing that seemed a bit old and rundown (it was stained brown from the inside, considering the entire thing is supposedly white...) Nothing stank or felt dodgy at all.

The bad part for me: I did not enjoy the thin walls where you can hear all your neighbors and, for a couple, all your neighbors can hear you which makes it into quite a restrictive night unless you're selfish.

The staff there were not warm nor rude, pretty much nonchalant with a "whatever" attitude. The small lovely town's need-to-go-to was pretty much walkable from this place. Area is surrounded with strips of eateries and outdoors shops plus some big groceries (ALDI, Dan Murphy's, etc)

Duty Management on 3 Feb was without doubt the rudest 1 have encountered.

And...the bed had a sloping gradient of 10 degrees - the worst I have slept on since boarding school.

Don't stay here. Spend your money somewhere else - where they appreciate your business!

So the negatives first. The rooms are either motel style which lack personality, or early 1900s which have high ceilings, are spacious, but are generally a bit old.

That said the place has a huge amount of character, the main room is live music venue where they have folk, blues, jazz and country.

Once you get into the swing of things the people are great, the breakfasts good and you'll ignore the fact its less well polished than others.
If you want somewhere like a modern Hotel Chain (e.g. Hilton) then you'll hate it, if you want somewhere where you could meet some great characters in the bar hear some cool music yo'ull love it.

Looked at quite a few places on a budget but most of them had a big downer on their location. This had an ok room, nice bed, basic bathroom but very well located at the start of Lurline street, so easy access on foot to main parts of Katoomba Street and all its eating places. Nice comfortable stay and great breakfast which the owner appeared to do each morning single-handedly!
