Super condensed summary; Walking distance from town, clean renovated bathrooms, nice lounge area downstairs for family games, comfy bed, substantial hot breakfast feed. Good price. Quiet road. Tea and coffee in bedroom and a fridge! Shower was hot and the soap/body wash smelt lush. Most importantly great reverse AIR CONDITIONING! (Thank gosh since it was 35 degrees outside.) Lots of off road parking and parking at hotel. No frills - will stay again!

Small hotel in a old building, together with the creaky timber floors. As a result don’t expect mod cons here as this is an old premises, and older places are always harder to keep clean. Nevertheless modern renovations of bed, bathroom, air conditioning, bring it up to scratch to 3 star hotel. Bathroom was small but fine, and the shower was hot and good enough. Including breakfast is fabulous and it’s a great location near centre of Katoomba next door to the RSL. Excellent COVID-safe practices observed and adhered to. In all this was fine and consistent with the three star rating.
