“Self contained cottage”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

We stayed in the self contained cottage, which is right next door to the motel. It is old, but well maintained and well set up for two couples or two families travelling together. It has a lovely verandah out the back where you can sit to eat a meal and enjoy the wonderful mountain birdlife in the back yard. The only drawback was the floorboards in the kitchen and dining room were loose and very squeaky so it was hard to sneak out to the bathroom at night without everyone hearing you!

Stayed here over easter, we were in room 3 for one night. Lady owner seemed lovely.
Fridge wasn't turned on when we got in room which was really annoying as we had an esky full of things from our travels. Doors open up onto bed.
Wifi password is advertised everywhere and is free but you can only get one bar of signal if you're lucky and we were in one of the closest rooms to the main building! Paid for hot breakfast. Expecting a small buffet, but instead got the choice of eggs, bacon and tomatoes or there was some bread for toast and peaches. Wouldn't recommend paying for hot breakfast. I'm sure there are other nice locations for breakfast in Katoomba. Also, shower kept going hot and cold throughout both mine and my partners showers. Which was a let down.

Also, just a helpful tip. Driveway is VERY steep for a car - Wouldn't recommend anyone elderly or that has any mobility issues to stay here.

We stayed for one night over the Easter weekend in a standard room. The room was basic, the front door opening onto the bed, a couple of bedside tables, a fridge and kettle, and at the back of the room, a wardrobe and bathroom, with a shower. The room was tired looking, but clean. The main reason for choosing this motel was its location, being a few minutes walk only from Echo Point. Be warned though - if travelling by train, it is a long walk from the train station. The restaurant was shut for evening meals so we had to walk back into town for food, though we were told that they could organise transport to RSL or get pizza etc delivered. They were very helpful.
Overall, it is a basic room, ideal for its location rather than its home comforts.

Excellent stay. Motel is a 5 minute walk from 3 Sister lookout. Upon arrival we were given lots of helpful tips for seeing the sites in the area. The restaurant list great too-- {we chose Rene's Pizza, great dinner!} Room was tidy and accommodating. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed the retro feel of the motel built in 1963, but the decor is a bit tired. The bathroom especially could use some TLC. Triple sheeted beds were advertised, but not in our room. We had hoped to eat in the restaurant, but it is only open on weekends. They should let guests know
ahead of check-in.
It is in a great location, a short to Echo Point and the Three Sisters.

We stayed for 3 nights and picked the location due to the proximity of the bush walks in the area, as well as the Three Sisters, which were a five minute walk away. The room was equipped with everything we needed, i.e. air conditioning, fridge, tea maker, king size bed, and breakfast every morning. Rooms were clean and the folks at the front desk were very pleasant and helpful. The first night in town, it was raining, so they arranged to bus a few of us to the local RSL club, which boasted 2 restaurants, bar, casino, and takeaway liquor sales. It was a pleasant diversion for an evening that otherwise would have been spent in a room. As we did not have a car, we had to walk 1.5 km into town to have dinner each night, but digesting on the walk back, probably didn't hurt. We had taken the train from Sydney to Katoomba, and the cab ride from the Katoomba train station to the motel was $8 AUD. The bushwalks in and out of the canyon were spectacular. We would certainly stay there again, if we are in the area. Cheers to the staff.

I was travelling with my family and that was the first time we went to Australia. You may find other nice reviews from others. I will just add on one thing that the owner was very helpful during my stay. The weather was really bad the day when we arrived. The owner was approachable and shared all the alternative tourist information for bad weather. The staff was also friendly.
