Only a few minutes walk to the major tourist attractions at Echo Point.
The double bed I had was much more interestingly decorated than your standard beige roomed motel. The inverter system air conditioner was great and welcome in August. Comfortable bed, beautifully warm electric blankets. The room was much more spacious than most motels.
I chose this motel because of the good reviews about the rooms and the staff and neither disappointed. The manager was very welcoming, friendly and easy going. The other reason I chose this motel over others was because it has a kitchenette (microwave, fridge and kettle). A toaster would have been good but probably not feasible in the kitchenette space. Also because of the free wi-fi. That's a bonus. The bathroom is an old-fashioned style but with a good shower. I really liked the old style pink wall tiles just because they gave the room character. Their is a table, a lounge chair, bed side tables, good lighting, a wall hung table that is just the right height for standing iPad/laptop use. Also a luggage rack so you don't have to leave alll your things on the floor or in the suitcase.
Before Trip Advisor and other review sites, I would never have commented on this, but their were not enough coat hangers or power points. These are trifling things. A simple breakfast is available if you wish to order it, but with a kitchenette there is little need to do so.
There was a great big digital TV, much better than the one I have at home. There was no traffic noise at all, only other people's doors opening and closing and the sound of people walking up the stairs to the second level.
I would stay here again and definitely recommend it for tourists going to the Blue Mountains to see the Three Sisters and sights around Leura/Katoomba.
It is about 20 minutes walk to the main town, or a few minutes drive.
