Motel is only two minutes from the centre of town. Very comfortable and clean room. Breakfast was great - lots of variety and very well priced. Motel is great... More

I was very pleasantly surprised by the comfort of beds and facilities available to us for a motor inn. Staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. Nothing was too much. Breakfast was very affordable and amazing. The place has a very family friendly feel. Great option for those visiting the blue mountains and in particular scenic world. Close to an amazing... More

They provided us with a microwave and plates, even though these things do not appear on the list of available facilities. The rooms were cleaned and resupplied after the first night. The staff...

We had a large family room that fitted 4 of us comfortably. Nice and close to Katoomba attractions but not so close you get all the passing trade. Lovely quiet location a bonus, especially at night.

Very welcoming and helpful staff. Aircon was on in the room when we got there so it was nice and toasty. Clean room and bathroom, serviced by cleaners while we were out which we were not expecting given our short stay. Reasonably priced and tasty breakfast on offer. 5 min drive to town centre, inexpensive cab ride for those not... More

This was a lovely, intimate place to stay for 2 nights. The rooms were clean and the bed was most comfortable. The amenities included coffee, cream, cookies and fridge. The host was a very personable gentlemen and very interesting to talk with. He spoke extensively about his travels throughout Australia. The part I liked the most was the motel's restaurant... More

Perfect location to walk to most of what you want to see. Nothing was too much trouble. I'll be back. The room had every thing you needed and electric beds. I had one small issue that was sorted instantly, old fashion service, like visiting family. Thanks
