We recently spent 4 nights at Chalet Fontanelle and had a wonderful time. We were upgraded to the Gordon Childe suite which, as others have stated, is extremely spacious and comfortable. The bedroom has lots of windows and a comfortable sitting area at one end. There is also another private room with a table, DVD/TV and sitting area and windows on 3 sides. One is spoilt for choice when deciding whether to relax inside or in the beautiful gardens. The suite also has a small kitchen area with a fridge and microwave plus all the bits and pieces one needs for breakfasts and tea and coffee (lovely crockery). The bed is comfortable and the shower has relatively good water pressure which helps one revive after walking. One can do a number of walks (of varying levels of difficulty) direct from Chalet Fontanelle or it is a short drive to lots of other walks in the Leura/Katoomba area. Wentworth Falls has some nice restaurants and cafes (we enjoyed dinner at Seven and pastries and coffee at both the Schwarz bakery and Il Postino's) as do nearby Leura and Katoomba (where we found Darleys to be the highlight of our trip foodwise).
