I stayed here in early June 2012 with some work colleagues as part of a conference at the nearby Fairmont Resort. The room was comfortable - the bed was good and the room was spacious. However, the bathroom was quite dated and really needs to be brought into the 21st century - the bathroom window, which needs to be open a little for ventilation, faces the car park and means your neighbours walk by whilst you're showering.
I stayed in one of the deluxe rooms (106 if I remember). However, my colleagues stayed further up towards the main reception and all were a little disappointed in their accommodation.
The parking is limited, particularly if you are staying over a weekend. So, you can be a long way from your room if you've gone out one night - not a major issue, unless you are dressed for a function and it is raining. Not only can you get wet, but the driveway can be slippery to walk on.
The buffet breakfast was good - a reasonable selection of most things that were hot and fresh.
Of most of the staff we came into contact with, I'd say there is a bit of disinterest in what they're doing. If you're going to work in tourism in the Blue Mountains, I think you need to be a little enthusiastic.
I suppose overall I'd say that Waldorf Leura Gardens Resort is representative of most accommodation that I've stayed in in the Blue Mountains over the years - a little underwhelming, in need of upgrading and resting on its laurels.
