I stayed here some time ago when these apartments were run by the Oaks Group. The location is brilliant, right opposite the station in Leura. Leura is the more upmarket area of the Blue Mountains. For a weekend in the mountains as a tourist ( without car) this is a perfectly located spot, with one and two bedroom inexpensive apartments. Unfortunately though the standard has dropped somewhat since my last visit. Public transport is abundant from Leura to everywhere in the mountains too from here. And great shopping, cafes and boutiques adorn the main street.
The general look of our two bedroom apartment was tired. The curtains needed maintenance (hanging all over the floor ) We couldn’t close them as all the pins were missing. Shampoo and hand soap were completely empty in both bathrooms and towels almost threadbare. The addition of 2 new $5 cushion covers on the lounge would certainly have brightened up the lounge room also.
This is a perfect place for families with children who want to eat in. Kitchen items also needed replacing. Certainly not up to scratch on maintenance of the units, as I remember from the past, but would take little to bring the Spires back to standard, as everywhere is clean and it is a nice setting with well-maintained gardens.
Reception staff need to look at the meaning of hospitality-“Cordial and generous reception towards guests” and not look like they can’t wait till their shift has finished, a smile on arrival guys wouldn’t go astray. But over all a good stay, certainly not brilliant. Look forward to seeing this place return to its former self in the not too distant future.
