“Average Resort”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

Stayed at this resort for 2 nights during the Easter weekend. Reception staff was quite courteous. coming to rooms i booked a deluxe resort but was very disappointed with the room. i specifically asked for king bed and they gave us two single bed joined king bed which was very uncomfortable. Bathrooms are old school some people may like it but it wasn't up-to my standards.
Resort itself is located in quite area of leura which was good. Had buffet breakfast included and it was above average. so overall i would say it's average resort.

Room Tip: Make sure to confirm your room requests before checking in

Don't believe the website pictures, if you book a family suite thinking the kids can go to bed and mum and dad can watch tv in their room you will be disappointed - no tv, when questioned about this I was told they have all been removed but the web photos hadn't been updated. Better bring a good book because the wifi does not reach the bedrooms either. Otherwise, it is clean and the staff are friendly but it is looking a little tired.

I used the hotel as a base for a golfing week in the Blue Mountains. I booked directly online, and took advantage of a discounted rate for staying at least 3 nights @ $109 per night for a standard room including full buffet breakfast. The room was very nice & comfy, but was in need of a little updating, as was most of the facilities at the hotel. The staff were polite and helpful, and the breakfast was very good. Leura is a nice little town, with a Woolworths, so you could buy food and cook it on the BBQ, which I did every evening. Leura Golf course is literally around the corner, and there are several more courses, and of course the Blue Mountains nearby to explore.
Overall, my experience of the hotel was a very pleasant one, and pretty good value for money too. Would use again and recommend to all types of traveller.

Room Tip: We had a first floor room overlooking the pool & restaurant, however we experienced no noise or...

We stayed 1 Saturday Night (5 of us in 2 rooms, Family Room & King Double Room) and were reasonably impressed by the standard of the Resort. Staff were very helpful on checkin and made us feel very welcome. Great that they do 1 night weekend accommodation, most places in the Blue Mountains only do 2 night weekend stays.The rooms were clean & comfortable, nicely furnished although a little tired & dated. Free Internet, games rooms & decent swimming pool. We did book well in advance for good rooms, and had nice big rooms at the front of the building. At first we thought they would be noisy but no problems as it was very quiet. Breakfast was great, buffet with great selection although very busy. It was fantastic location opposite the golf course & the nearby Leura village. We found Waldorf Resort a decent place to stay, good value & location, just wished we could have stayed a few days more.

Room Tip: Gets Busy, so book well in Advance

Arrived to be greeted by friendly lady at reception, and quickly booked into our rooms. A display cabinet offering range of feminine hygiene products was an interesting novelty, but there's clearly a need with guests. The rooms were extremely clean with a nice balcony outlook opposite the pool. The only minor disappointment was the bathrooms and facilities, which were rather dated, tired around the edges and would benefit from renovation. That aside, breakfast was good with plenty of choice.

We researched places to stay on the internet and using the Resort's own website, we decided to pay the extra and booked 2 Deluxe Resort Rooms. I can only wish the room looked as good as the photos. There was no king bed in our room. The rooms smelt damp. The cleanliness of the rooms, especially the bathroom was very disappinting. There was mould and bath towels with frayed ends. The resort offers free WiFi, which sounds great but the range didn't extend to my room. The bed was very uncomfortable. Breakfast was average. We had just spent 2 nights in the Hunter Valley and the expereince at this hotel was a real disappointment to finish our trip away on.
