I believe there are two criteria that can be used to reflect on a venue - firstly whether you are sorry to be leaving and secondly, would we return if the opportunity presented? My response in regard to The Chalet is a resounding "YES, absolutely!" It was all as good as you could wish. And the beautiful lounge area with...

We stayed at the Guesthouse recently and it was everything we expected AND more. Our host David was excellent: and nothing was too difficult for him. Medlow Bath is a great location: quiet and relaxing: close enough, but not that close, to Katoomba and is on the train line (if needed). Our room was very clean, tidy and "and individual...

Hello John, I appreciate your kind words and wish to thank you for wanting to share your thoughts with other potential guests.

My wife and I stayed here for Easter this year and it was truly perfect in every way. The personal service from David was faultless and the ambience and eclectic style of the guesthouse made our stay so much more interesting. Our room was very cost and romantic and the best part- no TV!! We dined at the restaurant on...

Hello Marcus, It was a pleasure meeting you both and helping you enjoy your stay in the wonderful Blue Mountains. We very much appreciate you taking the time to provide your (excellent) feedback.

Medlow Bath is a great location, out of the hustle and bustle of Katoomba, and opens you up to some gem finds that the great hosts will let you know about. The accommodation is more like being invited into someone's home, such is the pride and hospitality of the David's, a really rare find. Great service and the art collection...

Had a great stay at the Chalet Guesthouse, we arrived early and were checked right in, the family room met our needs and the beds were extremely comfortable. We had dinner in the restaurant which was delicious, the meals were rather large so there is no way you would leave hungry. Our host was always available to help with any...

We've booked this place based on reviews and they were spot on. Very nice place, very nice people that will give any assistance you need, room was very good and clean. Breakfast had toasts, yogurt, cereal etc very good, you're better off eating there than in some expensive Cafe in Katoomba. Also The Chalet is very close to Katoomba. Really...

Hi Cathy, Once again I am sorry that your expectations were not met. As mentioned in response to your review on Booking.com, I have checked again and we are correctly categorised as a guesthouse. In Australia a guesthouse is very similar to a B&B but larger, with more rooms and the owners residing in a separate section of the building....

Just spent a very pleasant weekend at The Chalet. The rooms are tastefully decorated and adorned with a private art collection, quality fittings and fresh fluffy towels.It is located in a quiet residential area with no traffic noise, just the sound of chirping birds and the soft jazz playing in the living room. I also recommend dining in their restaurant...

Magnificent place. Comfortable, luxurious, a perfect retreat. The surrounding area is stunning for photographers, bushwalkers, or just for sightseeing. Hosts are attentive without being intrusive and the food is excellent - what more can I say?! An absolute joy to stay here. We definitely plan to return.
