Thank you Louise, We are so happy you enjoyed your Christmas with us here at The Metropole Katoomba. It was a fantastic day full of laughs, good cheer & plenty of food. We always try to keep our guest happy & it's not Christmas unless you have to do the " slow walk back to your room after a traditional Christmas feast". Who doesn't love choice at Christmas, some want, Pav, some want trifle, some will try a little or a lot of everything. Its all here & we are more than happy for everyone to try it all. We hope to see you back here next year! Safe Travels Sharon

Queen Room
Room No.9 hotel front corner top level
Big screen on the wall. Why bother.
Tiny side-bedroom for 1 child or small adult.
Small wardrobe, but even that is too big in this tiny room.
Our family occupied 4 rooms while I was there. 1 Double and 3 queen rooms. All of our rooms had showers only. They have a restaurant which is open for breakfast every day and dinner on some nights. They have multiple spaces with lounge chairs with side tables where you can sit and read while you sip on your drink. They also have a library room where you can get the books to read. There is also a games room. Unless your are seeking a quiet and relaxing stay, this accommodation is not for you.

"Make sure lift working if you need it. Don't choose room with water pipes if you are a light sleeper."
"For sunlight Room 9, only if a sound sleeper. Rear or internal rooms less sunlight but quieter. Lift access to all levels."
"The driveway to the hotel carpark is a little steep and narrow, Ferraris might not get on too well with it!"
"You might get stuck for parking, because while the building is large, the parking area is not."
"Rooms with a sofa (sofa can be folded out for another bed)"
