We've just spent a fabulous weekend at Norwood Mountain Lodge in Blackheath. Tony, Dolma and their son phinTsu have just taken over the bnb and come with years of hospitality experience both local and abroad. The accommodation is wonderfully clean, comfortable and warm. The fireplace was roaring and we were never cold. We stayed in room 7 and loved it.
The location of the bnb is great - it's walking distance from the village and from Blackheath station but we were never aware of any traffic noise. The family are incredibly welcoming and could not do enough for their guests. There was always tea and coffee offered (proper ground coffee! I really recommend Dolma's flat whites). There was also cake and biscuits at tea time for those interested. Breakfasts were huge and Dolma and Tony cooked delicious fresh Nepalese food for dinner (which we have discovered is open to the public for dinner, too) - we recommend the samosas and momas! They cater for vegetarians and have gluten free options, which worked well for us.
We really respected their years of knowledge of bushwalking and climbing, as Tony and Dolma were both climbing guides in Nepal for many years. They had great advice on local tracks and bushwalking safety. Tony is happy to drop you off and pick you up at the end of a trail at no extra fee, just to make sure you get home safely!
As Tony and Dolma have just taken over the bnb, this is only the beginning for them and we're very excited to go back and see the changes! Apparently they're getting bicycles this week, which will be fabulous! We can't rave about this bnb enough! Highly, highly recommended for a warm, welcoming and comfortable stay in the Blue Mountains with great hosts and delicious food! Thank you so much Tony and Dolma!
