Pakenham, Australia
Reviewed 11 December 2016

We stayed here last year and had no hesitation coming back. Great location just a short walk to eco point to see the 3 sisters and information centre. Short drive to scenic world. The room was a good size and had a spa bath. Room 30 parking outside the room. The owner was friendly and helpful.

This motel is old and outdated. There cannot have been much refurbishment here for the last 10 years, and it doesn't look clean. The owners shows us some places on a map. He acts in a very unhelpful and unfriendly way. AUD 180 a night at a place like this feels like robbery even at Katoomba. The good thing: perfect...

Thank you for taking the time to offer a review, Obviously you appear unhappy with your stay, unfortunately we have no record of your visit or can place a Tariff of $180.00, however should this have been a one night accommodation on a Friday or Saturday, the Tariff would certainly be near our rate.

Stayed as the echo point motel great value. Close to the amazing three sisters and echo point. Shuttle bus right at the front making it easy to go into Katoomba to and visit the cafés or one of the nice pubs. You can also get the bus to scenic railway

Swansea, United Kingdom
Reviewed 6 October 2016

The 3 Explorers Motel offers an exceptionally friendly, relaxed and helpful service. The room was immaculate with facilities for self catering and breakfast could be pre ordered. A great base from which to explore the beautiful Blue Mountains area and just up the road from Echo Point. Thoroughly recommend this motel.

The only endearing quality this motel has is its location. We booked a superior queen thinking it would be a better option but when we got there were told it is the standard room. Why is it not called a standard queen. Katoomba prices are not cheap anywhere but we did see cheaper on boards when we were out touring...
