The room was exceptionally clean and well presented. It was very quiet, yet close walking distance to The Three Sisters. It had the best shower! The staff were friendly and helpful. It was a great place to stay.

The location was great, close to the 3 sisters & not even 5min drive to the Main Street. The staff ate friendly, the rooms beat & clean. Though the place doesn't look flash on the outside we were pleasantly surprised especially because it is quite affordable. Free Wi Fi is also provided & the guy at reception provided some great tips. We stayed here because we we've canyoning & we were happy to come back to our room & a great shower afterwards. I recommend it & would stay again.

This motel is situated south of the centre of Katoomba within easy walking distance of the classic viewpoint of the three sisters. There is loads of parking and the rooms are large and well equiped with microwaves as well as kettles. The ability to order a cooked breakfast delivered to your room was an added plus.

This little motel is centrally located to all of the attractions in the area. We stayed here last night and really enjoyed the place. The beds are comfy and the shower is the best!!!! The water pressure is like a waterfall. We ordered their room service for breakfast and the owners make a great eggs on toast. The raisin bread was as thick as 3 normal slices (awesome). I would highly suggest staying here is you are visiting the area.

The place is very clean and has all the amenities (refrigerator, wine glasses, comfy beds, free wifi) that you could want when hiking around the Blue Mountains. And the manager at the front desk is very friendly and will answer any questions. The place is quiet, right across from a good chocolate shop and close to the 3 sisters.

We stayed a couple of nights at the 3 Explorers Motel and just had good experiences! Very friendly and caring people, especially the Managers Natasha and Chase Johnson! Incredible service, very clean. The 3 Explorers Motel is localized very good, very close to the 3 Sisters and other attractions. Natasha and Chase Johnson also helped a lot to find out the best hikes for our group of friends! Thank you very much!

A short taxi ride from the train station, we arrived and were met by very friendly staff and given our room. Very clean, basic room, just what we needed for a one night stay. Ordered breakfast for the morning which was ok.

Perfect location for seeing the 3 Sisters and doing any other walks. Free WiFi included which was a real plus - why can't city hotels manage this!?
