A wonderful hotel.
I usually stay at the Carrington on my rare visits to Katoomba, however the Carrington was fully booked for the one night and day I had at Katoomba. The Palais Royale is a beautifully restored hotel with equally welcoming hosts and a nice pleasant walk from the station. The continental brekky was good enough to start any day. Now I'm retired, I will be back for a longer stay very soon.
