Its okay. Clean room and only a 5 minute walk to the three sisters. Short drive to the town center........ but a bit boring 😕 Simple old motel. A bit over priced in my opinion but i guess all rooms in blue mountains are!!More

Excellent spacious room. Modern & fresh. Very comfortable beds and pillows. Nice towels & toiletries. Big TV with clear reception. Yummy breakfast delivered to room. Heaters were a savour in Winter and worked a treat. Would definitely return. Great value for money.

Hi, I agree with one of the previous answers. I would give the motel a call. Possibly they have a wheelchair friendly room on the premises. The rooms we had were upstairs and no unfortunately not suitable.

No breakfast included but can pay extra for the owners to cook breakfast. If you have a family it is better to borrow plates and utensils from owner, use the microwave, buy food in local Coles
