My family of 5 took a couple of rooms at the Hideaway and had a great stay. It was convenient to Leura and Katoomba where we spent most of the weekend, the rooms were simple but cosy, clean and functional, and breakfast was fine. The Hideaway has a very welcoming feel for families, the pool table in the games room... More

Stayed here 1 night with me partner. It was pleasant. Parking isn't the best and rooms are very simplistic. Close to the Main Street and the National Park. Would recommend for people wanting to stay somewhere briefly.

My partner & I decided on a weekend away during school holidays to wind down and relax. We chose the hideaway as it was one of the fair priced options at this time of year, it was central to most places we wanted to get to and looked beautiful. We were not dissapointed! We felt as though we had the... More

Very average room for a premium price. When you pay this much for a room you do not expect to find that there are more coat hangers than parking spaces - that the room and bathroom are basic, that there is no real milk, no tissues, no bottle opener, only a mirror in the bathroom. I could go on -... More

This property needs a lot of work to be acceptable. Breakfast was included in the price, we chose to go elsewhere after the first morning. The property looks impressive and the rooms are designed to a view over the mountains. The pool looks inviting and well maintained. A feature is lots of books in rooms and common areas for those...

The retreat building itself looks lovely, it has a wonderful country feel to it, and the view from the rooms (I believe all the rooms overlook the backdrop) is beautiful. It is extremely peaceful overlooking the Blue Mountains and listening to the birds echo through the trees. The main areas of the accommodation are well presented, and the fireplace with... More

Room was large and clean but very old fashioned with furniture and fittings needing a total update. The views are very good. Parking is shockingly inadequate and it took 10 mins to get our car out from the hopeless mess of badly parked cars. The place is overpriced for what it provides and we were very disappointed with the whole... More

Rooms were basic, and the whole place is in need of refurbishment. Breakfast was included and was not great. Home made bread was inedible. Not at all what we thought we were getting for nearly $200 per night.

This stunning homely accommodation is perfect to get away from the bustling city. I stayed 2 nights and went home completely recharged and rejuvenated. The room opens out to the Blue mountains , a lovely pool area and the beautiful sounds of the Australian bush. Crickets sing at night and the morning greets you with the sounds of roosters and...
