To celebrate my birthday and the end of exams my boyfriend and I decided to have a weekend in the mountains. As a student and backpacker, we were cautious that we didn't want to spend too much but were keen to treat ourselves to a lovely B&B and enjoy our weekend.
After a long search I finally found Ballykissangel and we can't recommend it enough. Both rooms are absolutely gorgeous but we opted to stay in the blue room for the design and double spa. The green room has a log fire. The decor was second to none and the bed was incredibly comfortable. We also really enjoyed the flexibility of being able to have breakfast whenever we wanted in the self-serve kitchen.The hostel is in a great location, perfectly situated a 10 minute stroll from town and a 5 minute walk to Echo Point. And the Blue Mountains Chocolate Factory is only a minute's walk down the road!
The best part about our stay at Ballykissangel is that romance wasn't forced down our throats, we had a lovely weekend, lots of privacy, and it felt more like a home away from home. We will definitely be visiting again. Maureen is the perfect host and very very funny, we spent a good hour chatting and laughing to her. She even dropped our bags off at Leura when we were leaving. I would strongly recommend this B&B to any visitor to Katoomba, it really made our trip so enjoyable.
