Old tired motel but great helpful staff. So so handy to Three Sisters for day n night viewing. On scenic drive route. Handy to both pretty Leura & Katoomba shops and restaurants. Not far from scenic world.

Decent size rooms, fast wi-fi, wonderful location, great price. Bathroom could use an upgrade. Comfortable stay with friendly and helpful staff. We loved the fluffy hotel cat that would greet us each day - felt like home! Would stay again.

My experience.... Check in smooth .. friendly... quick...even though the motel was busy. Stayed in Room 114 which is the closet room to the street... noise from the road was not a problem. Noise can be heard from room next door but neighbours were considerate. The whole area was quiet after dark.As others have mentioned the furniture is dated... though...

Two negatives, room appears half decorated and wifi down one day. But who spends much time in the room? Now the positives, Very nice friendly helpful desk staff.
