“Comfortable and clean”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

We stayed two nights here. Room was clean and comfortable. We find room to be cold especially in the night, though there are electric blankets. Bath room is freezing especially at night even though window was closed. Had to close the toilet room door to keep our bedroom warm. We can hear people talking in the next room. Should have light nearer to the cabinet area. Great to have wifi in the room. Paid for hot breakfast. Was quite disappointed with the location of this motel as it was not as near to echo point and to Katoomba main streets as I thought (especially when we do not have our own transportation.) Margaret at the reception was helpful.

As already mentionned in other comments, this motel is not very modern but everything is perfect.
The room, although not new was big enough and perfectly clean. The bed was good quality and the motel itself was nice and well kept.
The situation is perfect, you can walk to the 3 sisters, the scenic world and to Katoomba downtown.

The breakfast was ok and the eggs made on orders were perfect.
The manager was lovely. She was there from early in the morning till late in the evening to chat, answer your questions and give you very good adivses about the area.She really works hard to make your stay perfect. In this motel you can see what the word Hospitality means.


We really enjoyed to stay in this motel. We felt like at home and everyhing was great.

At first impressions, the motel seemed average at best, but we were pleasantly surprised to find the rooms very clean, with all the basic necessary amenities provided. The breakfast we added when booking for only $10 for two continental breakfasts was outstanding value. The outside breakfast deck overlooks the valley. The staff were extremely cordial and attentive. We would recommend a stay at this location especially if you are visiting the Three Sisters as it is in waking distance.

My family of 4 stayed here for 1 night in a family room which consisted of 2 double beds and a single. We arrived here early and the manager (Margaret) let us into our room early which was much appreciated.The room was small but clean and pleasant. The beds were comfy and had electric blankets.The bathroom was small and did not have much bench space which was a minor issue. We ordered room service as our little boys were tired and Ray cooked us up a beautiful meal which was very tasty and super large we had trouble finishing it. They have a restaurant on site. Our rate included a continental breakfast which was basic but very nice and all we needed.You can also order a cooked breakfast which looked good. Margaret is very knowledgeable about the area and she has an abundance of maps and tourist info at hand. It was nice to be able to park our car at the motel and walk to the skyway and the yummy chocolate shop. Highly recommended motel for a family, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

I normally have a rule... No neon lights (until Vegas!) as they are so often a symptom of an unloved motel. Not here though! We arrived really early and were welcomed and let in our room. The service throughout the stay was amazing. The location is perfect for seeing the sights, and quiet in the evenings. We drove to the village due to the weather, but you could walk. Accommodation in this area is very expensive, so this was a fair price for a clean, if basic room, and a yummy breakfast included. Thanks for having us and sorry I didn't review earlier. We've recommended to our friends coming your way. :)

Stayed 3 nights in a standard room. Reception friendly and efficient. Older style motel, but rooms have been updated. Small room, but very clean and reasonably well appointed. Bathroom clean but had no bench space at all which was frustrating. Very quiet which is a real bonus in the Blue Mountains. Convenient location within easy walking distance of Echo Point and Skyway, and also within walking distance of Katoomba town centre, Katoomba Falls and walking tracks. Great base for exploring the Blue Mountains.

I would love to stay here again. It has the most helpful & charming owners & managers you have ever seen. They are amazing, they can't help you enough. They were so great with our 3 busy boys. One of our sons had his birthday while there & Margaret went & got him a little patty cake with a candle for his b'day breakfast.
Ask her where to go to see all the good attractions, she knows her town backwards.
Very comfortable beds, normal size rooms, good value for money. If I had to find a critisim, the only one would be the shower. It does fluctuate a bit between hot & cold if other people also using other showers. But in the big picture, who cares.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. Glad to hear your family had a great time. In relation to the water fluctuation we do apologise. After investigation with the water authority it has been determined that the water saving spouts are the cause of the fluctuation of hot / cold. We have now fixed this issue. Thank you for bringing this to our attention & we look forward in welcoming your family in the future. Best Regards, Mark Simpson, Owner, 3 Sisters Motel
