This is an older hotel in downtown Katoomba, near the 3 sisters (Blue Mountains). The location is excellent. Unfortunately, the hotel is rather old and has seen better days. We stayed in the winter (July), and the room was freezing. The beds both had electric blankets, and there was an electric heater which eventually warmed up the room somewhat. The room and bathroom were both spacious, but the furniture and bathroom fixtures were very old. There was supposed to be internet access available (for a very expensive add-on price), but the staff couldn't figure out how to access it. It turned out that breakfast was included in the room (which I didn't realize when I booked it), and that was a very nice full breakfast with eggs, Aussie bacon, sausage, breads, jellies, cereals, etc.
