Lovely helpful staff, brilliant pool bbq area and good location. Room was good, remodelled bathroom. Not the kind of room you would hang out in all day but great to come home to after a day exploring.

Most lovely friendly helpful staff, after turning up last minute she accomodated our family of 5. The rooms was very clean, nice linen. Pool, laundry facilities and breakfast if we needed it. But to top it all off, we had biscuits in the fridge that were Nut Free. Our baby is severly allergic to nuts, so his was indeed meant...

The lady on the front desk was very friendly and helpful. Location of motel is good for access to Katoomba CBD and to tourist sites such as Echo Point and Scenic World. Motel room was clean and appeared to have been renovated within past few years. We were simply after a room where we could stay for two nights while...

Very friendly and helpful owners. Motel style property. It's not modern but it's not old fashioned either. Has had some recent updating in the bathroom area. Pool and BBQ area very nice. WiFi absolutely terrible. The owners did their best to try and fix it for us but it was very up and down. If wifi is important to you...

We stayed here for a night, the motel is in a great location and you can walk into town in just 5 minutes. The owner checked us in, he was exceptionally nice and friendly and really helped with our every random need. In reception there's a large range of DVD'S and books which you can borrow which was lovely. Our...

I booked the family unit and I thought that was a pretty good decision I made over the 5 bedder although both rooms had 5 beds. There was more space to move around for luggage. It was also nice for kids to have their own room to chill in. It was a nice touch of the room to have plates,...

We recently stayed here for 2 nights using the motel as a base to do some hiking. It is fairly basic but spotlessly clean and conveniently located. It's just off the great western highway and whilst we had a room near the front of the hotel we were not disturbed by the road traffic. If you want to be in...

Thank you. We actually like our location outside of the town centre it is quieter and less crowded. We are only 1.2 km from the town centre so a couple of mins by car or an easy 20-25 min walk to all the shops and restaurants. We also have a pool... which is a huge bonus especially after a hard...

We had a Family Room and it was perfect for our needs during our short stay. Very clean, comfortable beds, big bathroom, great breakfast at a great price and all the staff were friendly and efficient. Only minor challenge we had was the Wi-Fi kept dropping out which was quite important for our stay, but that's apparently characteristic of the...

Thank you. The internet is out biggest headache but we are very close to getting the NBN into the motel, which we have been assured will offer a faster and more reliable service to the motel and to all our guests.

I enjoyed the walk from Katoomba station to the motel, which passed a few lovely antique shops and residential housing. I was going to walk the Six Foot Track and this place is perfect if you are looking for an early and quick start to the starting point. My hosts were lovely and helpful, pointing out on a map where...

We are just 1.5 from the start of the 6ft track so a great base if you want to do the walk to Jenolan Caves. Thank you and we hope to see you again
