“Had A Great Time”
Reviewed July 5, 2011

I dont know about these other reviews but i found the place very suitable for the price.I suppose if you want 5 star motel you go somewhere else and pay triple the amount and that will cut into your spending money.I found the beds clean and confortable and the heating was sufficient.The staff were great and helpfull and the cook was one you would love to meet.Next time i go i hope he is still there.........Best Wishes From EDDIE

I have only submitted one negative review and this is it. This is an awful hotel. We booked the pllace only because we couldn't get a single night's accom. elsewhere in the region.

We knew we'd made a mistake as soon as we drove into the carpark.

The building is like an old converted hospital but even less welcoming. And the reception is straight out of a Hitchcock movie... you are even asked to 'sign the register'. There's a stale smell which permeates throughout the place - and I think it comes from the very unwelcoming restaurant, which we didn't dare try. Nor did anyone else by the way!

In fairness I must say the rooms are reasonably presented but dark and extremely noisy - not surprising given they are adjacent to and above the Western Highway - and I can confirm that the trucks run all night.

Reception is only manned until early evening which means we couldn't do anything about the group of revellers who arrived at about 1.00am and partied on until after 3.00am seemingly outside our door, but in fact in the 'guests lounge' up the hallway. By the way, we received zero sympathy when we mentioned this on check out!

This is a truly an awful place which I note is for sale and planned demolishment. That says it all.

Room Tip: Look elsewhere.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Regretted booking this when we entered the motel. The girl at the reception was nice enough but walking through those hallways reminded me of an institutional building, like a hospital or so. The room itself was sort of ok, the bed was a very large king, but there was nothing warm or friendly about the decor and there weren't even pictures on the cold mint coloured walls. The evenings and nights get very cold in the Blue Mountains but the tiny electric radiator didn't warm the room at all as the ceilings were so high. In any case it certainly didn't reach the chilling old-fashioned bathroom. There were long black hairs on the bathroom floor which really made me gag! They got between my toes when I stepped out of the shower! Yuck yuck yuck! Why can't the floor be vacumed? There is roadwork going on outside and they should update this place as well. We didn't bother having breakfast or dinner because the times were not to our liking. Breakfast is until 9.00 at the last! Dinnertime was also only geared towards the elderly.
I cannot recommend this to anyone, not even for one night. Found the price -(140 A$) per night, no breakfast - very steep.

We found that we could book a room online with a company ( www.Wotif.com) and decided to book a room for two days. When we arrived we found the weather was terrible. It was pouring with rain and the fog was so thick you could not see anything. As a result we decided to call it quits after one day and asked for a refund on the second day. They were not at all helpful. They charged us for the two days.

Under the circumstances we felt unfairly treated. This would never happen in a US hotel. You can show up, but if for any reason you decide not to stay after the first night and you give them notice they will not charge you for extra days unless there is an explicit minimum stay.

The motel is dated and a bit noisy but ok for a night. I just would not book more than one night in advance in case you have a similar experience to us.

One good thing though...We had an outstanding meal at Silks Bistro in Luera. Highly recommend it.

we went to blue mountain on the weekend of labor day public holiday and most of the accommodation in katoomba area was fully booked.
wentworth falls area is not too far from katoomba and leura..so we decided to stay here.

location:
if you are coming from sydney, hotel is on the right hand side, you can see the big sign from the road, however at night, quite hard to find.

customer service:
the lady on the reception area was very welcoming, nice and friendly.

room:
room was quite spacious, it has all the basic amenities like tv, kettle, cups, tea bags, soap, towels. there is no central heating, however they provide oil based heater and electric blanket which was nice.
room and the bathroom was clean, although a bit dated.
unfortunately, the wall was thin, we can hear all the conversation on the room next door.

all in all...its not bad for one night stay.
