“Good for a short stay”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

We stayed in a family room. Rooms were clean and functional. I would not rate them as 'luxury', more your run of the mill motel room - but certainly fine for a short stay. Very close to the 3 Sisters / Echo Point and a short drive into the main street of Katoomba. Owners were friendly and helpful. Comfortable beds and very quiet at night.

close to 3 sisters and few restaurants around, bit away from Katoomba town . This is a motel and if you are travelling by your own vehicle is ideal. refurbished rooms, not luxury, bit expensive. The toilet door-lock was not working.

Great location. Clean rooms and friendly, helpful service. Would definitely recommend. Walking distance to three sisters, echoe point and other attractions. Chocolatier across the road. Not far from restaurants and hotels. About 1km. Easy parking.

We have just had a relaxing night here. Our unit had 2 bedrooms with a great spa bath. Very friendly service and very close to everything including the Three Sisters and across the road from the Chocolate shop.
