We were at the Carrington to see the New Year in and stayed an extra night. Our decision to have dinner in the Carrington Dining Room was the right one. Starting with a cocktail, followed by excellent entrees (Seared Tuna and Scallops), followed by the mains (Tenderloin and Lamb) we couldn't fit a dessert in and settled for coffee. The... More

In the 1920s this was one of the places to go in the British Empire along with Raffles in Singapore. Its a very lovely old world hotel with all of the charm that you would expect. If you do nothing else , pop in for their Tea and scones in the lounge room.

I took my Mum out for dinner at the Carrington as a thank you to her. The food was pretty average and way over priced. There weren't many people in the restaurant especially for a Friday night so we're obviously not the only ones that weren't impressed. I had the scallop entree which was ok, and the lamb for a...

Just came back from lovely weekend in Mountains despite the rain. And a highlight of the weekend was again dining at The Carrington Dining Room. Service as usual was professional and nothing was too much bother for the lovely young lady that served us. The food was perfect and I really have not one bad thing to say. And then... More

What a great dinning experience with old world charm. We loved the food and at only $55 for 2 courses it is fantastic value for money. The meal was accompanied by live piano music and we had not experienced that for over 35 years at any hotel. I requested the same two songs that I did 35 years earlier and... More

We went for a 7pm dinner service. We had seared scallops and stuffed zucchini flowers and then a salted caramel w chocolate mousse and a cheese platter. All the food was delicious and beautifully presented. A grand piano was gently playing during dinner which was just lovely too. Very good service. A great treat

Had dinner here in opulent historical surroundings. Well priced and great service. A must do if in Katoomba (we were staying in the hotel which made it even better).
