I am amazed this place can still function, well barely. We stayed 1 night. If I had my time again I would have booked an extra night in Katoomba and driven here and back in 1 day. The building is really run down. I would have thought that like many other hotels the Covid closure would give then time for a tidy up. The windows have not been cleaned in years, I'd say 5 or more. The carpets are thread bare, the ceilings in the dining room are flaking paint.
You had to pre book dinner and pay a booking fee!! ( never in my life have I ever). They knew exactly how many were dining and the times, yet they had 1 staff to run the entire restaurant and bar area. There was 1 table of ten an about 10 couples dining. The poor guy was so stressed and didn't know who was next. It took an hour before others gave him a hand. He did a fantastic job but management should be fired.
The food quality was very basic. the rooms had no heating and it was to get down to 6 deg that night.
Cave tours are fantastic.More
