For something really different in regional NSW you must consider staying in Narranderra at the New Criterion Hotel - it's art deco circa 1939 and to me it has right the amount of the old and the new - a perfect balance. The rooms are not huge but that adds to the historical feel to the entire place - people were smaller in the last century! You could almost imagine being back there in the 1930's. There are Lounge spaces and even the share toilets are not what I expected - if you need a save a few dollars consider a non-ensuite room as the share bathrooms are super clean and private also. I did have a room with an ensuite and the shower space is really large. There are also balconies to hang out in. Murray the host could not be improved - he is also balanced in his approach - not too much but enough to feel really looked after. This will become my new stop in rural NSW.
