Beautiful staff, clean modern room, pool situated in a perfect wind block just right for sunbaking.
Can't wait to take my 2 kids back some time soon.
Also a great pitt stop on the way to Jenolan Caves from Sydney.

Stayed December 2012, traveled with family

The great thing about this resort is the location in the Blue Mountains. The good is that it is family friendly which is what we wanted as we were giving our son, daughter-in-law and grand children a treat to stay at the resort for a weekend with us. The pool and child soft play rooms were fantastic and fitted out needs perfectly. We were also able to arrange for baby sitting through the reception staff with a local lady so that we adults could have a nice relaxing evening meal in the Eucalypt restaurant.
The not so good was that certain areas, particularly in the restaurant at breakfast were not very well cleaned (crushed breadsticks littered the floor where we sat and there were dead flies/wasps on the window sills) We also had to clear a table ourselves one morning - there appeared to be insufficient staff to keep the restaurant clean at busy times.
In our opinion the Fairmont needs to just 'shape up' a bit to become a really great all round resort for families - not so sure it should also be selling itself as a wedding venue at the same time. A little weird/uncomfortable trying to feed a 3 year old + baby at the same time as wedding party photos being taken in the same area of the hotel!

I went to Fairmont resort with my family. The kids were in the heated pool all day. In the afternoon my husband and I sat at the bar while my kids were watching a movie which was great. The staff were wonderful and the rooms were stunning. The Fairmont is a spectacular resort!

My husband and I stayed for only one night at the Fairmont. We were greeted in a friendly manner and check-in was efficient. The concierge came to us promptly and took our luggage to our room. On leaving we had the same prompt service returning our luggage to our car. The reception area was large with comfortable chairs, a huge fish tank in the wall and a view out to the Jamison Valley. It was a hot day but we found the reception area and other areas of the hotel including our room to be pleasantly cool with the air conditioning.
Our room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. They offer a variety of pillow types.The only problem was that there was only a doona and no sheet. Even with the air conditioning on the doona was too warm and without it, too cool.
We ate at Embers and found the service to be prompt and the food good, plentiful and reasonable value.. From Embers you have a good view out over the Jamison Valley.
The grounds are extensive. The is an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts, a gym, two lakes with ducks and waterlillies.You can go on a bushwalk from the grounds. Other activities include trying out a segway and a billiards/pool room.
There is plenty of parking,
Leura itself is a delightful Blue Mountains village with a lovely collection of shops and cafes. There is a Woolworths supermarket there and a Coles supermarket in nearby Katoomba.

Room Tip: Rooms on the southern side have views over Jamison Valley. On the northern side you overlook trees a...
