“Great hospitality, excellent breakfast !”
Reviewed June 25, 2009

1st time in Sydney, booked the hotel based solely on advise from tripadvisor. Booked thru the hotel web site. Reply was quick and efficient. Beautiful house, Peter was a wonderful host, giving us tips where to go and dine. Yes, tea/coffee, chocolates and cakes were served when we arrive at 10.30 am, and it is free of charge! The chocolate cake was delicious. We were given the rooms even though check in was 2pm. Breakfast was delicious! Free internet access and parking. Overall, a wonderful stay!

We had two nights at Lurline. The rooms are great. Comfortable and clean. Spa bath, Four poster bed. Very pleasant guest sitting room complete with fruit baskets and port and choice of a range of things from the kitchen which come morning converts to a kitchen where our host cooks up a storm in the form of a brilliant full English breakfast. I guess as the owner hails from Cornwall that is very apt. To top it off you can get plenty of advice where to go what to do etc. This is a very nice B&B.

We arrived late afternoon and while we went to the room Peter produced home made cakes and tea in lovely China cups, all complementary and a very relaxing and civilised way to start our stay.

We stayed in a standard room which had a lovely four poster bed. Breakfast was one of the best we have ever had (and that includes Raffles in Singapore where we stayed later on our trip).

If you stay here a good place to eat just up the road is the Gallery restaurant.

as previous reviews have said....this was the best B&B stay we have ever stayed at....Peter together with his staff were the perfect hosts. The house was warm and friendly and the breakfasts were cooked to perfection. We will certainly be back.

This is truly one of the best B&B's we have ever stayed in and I wish we had planned a longer stay. The room was elegant and comfortable and breakfast was delicious and service impeccable--makes you feel like a special guest--be sure to try the scrumptious and delicate pancakes. Even wireless internet is free. Leura is a charming town and this place is in a nice residential area, a few blocks from downtown and walking distance to the viewpoint.
Peter makes a special effort to make your stay perfect and did you know he used to manage Sheraton Hotels? Highly recommended!

I stayed here in November 2008 with my family from Ireland who were visiting Australia for the first time. Our decision to stay here was solely based on previous Tripadvisor reviews.

From the moment we arrived at Lurline House Peter made us feel very welcome. The house and rooms are beautiful, homely and immaculately kept. In the gardens there were many beautiful birds and we enjoyed watching them while eating our breakfast. Breakfast was prepared fresh. There was a great selection of fruit, cereals and the cooked breakfast was lovely.

Lurline house is in a quiet neighbourhood and is only 10 minutes walk from the train station and the Three Sisters. Also the nearby Swiss Cottage restaurant serves very good food.

Peter had a great knowledge of the local area and was more than happy to point out the places of interest in Katoomba and beyond.

Overall we would definitely stay here again. We only wish we had booked a longer stay.

I can confirm that, as at 19 April 2009, Peter is still running the most wonderful B&B. Tea and cakes on arrival, port left out at night, comfortable bed in a large room, free wi-fi and an excellent breakfast. Our host is not short of suggestions for walks and restaurants and his directions are impeccable. This is an excellent place to stay in the Blue Mountains: I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it and would love to stay there again.
