9.2.Superb.
  • 4.0.Fair

    Quite disappointing.

    Hotel is well located but is in need of maintenance. Our room was spacious, though the bathroom sink was blocked. The guy used a plunger to clear the blockage and it appeared to be ok though the room smelled of standing water. Very musty. The following morning the sink was blocked again and made our morning quite unpleasant. We had advised reception we would be using the dining room for breakfast at 7:30am. When we arrived at 7:30am, the dining room was locked and dark. Reception was dark. In general, I didn’t enjoy my stay but luckily we weren’t there for long.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Clean & tidy!

    Slightly older motel however in good condition, room was very clean and bathrooms were decent too. Double Bed was maybe a little too small for 2adults & 1 preschooler to share so would recommend an extra bed.

    Wonderful stay. Very clean and comfortable. Gentleman at reception is very warm and friendly. Thankfully, utensils and plates/bowls provided in the room as I forgot to request utensils with our take-away dinner.

    Great value for money, Ideal Blue Mountains base

    Excellent value for money for a short break in the Blue Mountains. Typical older motel-style property but well-renovated and very clean and comfortable. Decent-sized room, good beds, renovated bathroom, TV, fridge, kettle and microwave - everything you need. Onsite parking, pool, great wi-fi, breakfast available. Service was exceptional - friendly, helpful, knowledgable. Just outside Katoomba - 2 mins drive/15 mins walk - easy access to everywhere. Great base to explore the area at a reasonable cost.
