My wife and I spend three nights at the Sky Rider Motor Inn during a long-long weekend in the Blue Mountains. It's an older motel and looks rather unassuming from the outside, but don't let this deter you; our room was spotless, airy, and quiet of an evening, the bed was very comfortable and the shower was hot and punchy in terms of water pressure. Housekeeping was on the ball; it was nice to arrive back to a tidied room, remade bed and fresh towels each evening.
The managers/owners were very welcoming and went to great lengths to ensure we were looked after, including accomodating a dietary requirement (speaking of which, the cooked breakfast was fantastic value) and providing us with complimentary utensils and plateware for the poolside BBQ. They were also very helpful with directions and advice around the local dining and sightseeing scene.
The motor inn has good access to the Great Western Highway (but very little traffic noise), the better-known tourist sights in Katoomba are a short drive or reasonable walk away, as is Katoomba's main street with its many eateries.
The Sky Rider is wonderful value for money and we'd definately stay again.
