Old style hotel. Lovely mountain stay.

Posted Dec 20, 2014
Cons: A bit of updating.
Location: Fabulous location
In general a great stay. Though a bit out of date and well worn, the rooms were very clean. Not the best pool. Staff was lovely.

Classic retreat

Posted Dec 6, 2014
A little bit of history in Katoomba. Ornate old school rooms - but clean and large. Great view of the mountains from lounge / dining room. Breakfast included. Decent value.

駅から近いすてきなホテル Beautiful and classic hotel

Posted Nov 6, 2014
Pros: 駅からの近さ、ホテルのスタッフの親切さ、朝食がついていること。Closeness to the station and town, kindness of hotel staff and breakfast
Location: シーニックワールド
駅から歩いて5分ほどなので便利でした。ホテルの受付の方がとても親切で暖かったです。この周辺で何をしたいかを聞いてくれて、おすすめの場所も教えてくれました。ツアーも代わりに電話をかけて予約していただき、本当にうれしかったです。古いホテルなのですが、掃除も行き届いていました。朝食を食べた部屋は日当たりがよく、まわりの景色が見える部屋でリラックスできました。 This hotel is situated near the station, 5-minute-walk from Katoomba station. The person at the reception was so friendly and kind. I could really relax and had a good time at this hotel.

Overpriced

Posted Oct 27, 2014
Pros: Breakfast was good, beds were comfortable, the view from the dining room and front veranda is incredible and the location was great.
Cons: Lower prices and updated decor.
Location: Great location very close to the Katoomba station and within walking distance of hiking trails.
This hotel was definitely sufficient but I found it to be overpriced based on the condition and quality of the hotel.

Peaceful except early morning cleaning

Posted Sep 29, 2014
The cleaners were walking up and down the corridor outside our room from 7am, on wooden floorboards - which woke us up very early in the morning with constant footsteps every few minutes for an hour. Be good if cleaners can delay whatever was happening to decent hour and lighten their footsteps. On the whole it's a nice and peaceful place

Old world comfort and charm

Posted Aug 15, 2014
Stayed here with my wife and her 86 year old father. The views are breathtaking in this delightful hotel. The place oozed warmth and welcome, from the friendly receptionist to the comfy sofas and the super comfortable beds. The evening meal in the restaurant was excellent [we each had something different and all enjoyed our meals]. My father-in-law particularly enjoyed the pianist playing in the bar and later the dining room. Will be back.

Lovely old hotel with fabulous valley views.

Posted Aug 1, 2014
Pros: The old world charm
Cons: tissues and toilet paper need to be 3ply!!!!
Location: Short walk to Katoomba main street with plenty of restaurant options.
Log fires, old comfortable lounges, beautiful décor. It's a genuine mountain experience.
