Only stayed for one night, but rooms were spacious and clean and beds very comfortable. We enjoyed the luxury of the spa bath. Great location within walking distance of Echo Point and the view of the Three Sisters and we stood in the same viewing spot that Prince William and Kate did just three hours before they did! Only a very short drive to the multitude of restaurants in Katoomba and the sights and adventures of Scenic World.

The 3 Explorers is perfectly adequate for a short stay. If you want to be near Echo Point the location is good. Reception on check in was efficient and informative. The rooms are clean and quiet air conditioning and refrigerator are always welcome. The motel was full during our stay but was quiet.

Pins restaurant is 0.5km away (but you need to book) and the RSL club 1.0km away. Other than that no many restaurant options.

Room Tip: Room away from stair entrance.

Stayed at the motel for 2 nights during the easter break and was well looked after by the host Chris. The spa suite with a queen bed & 2 single beds was well suited to my family of four. Every day clean towels were provided & beds were made up. Great location with easy walk to Echo point & 3 Sisters lookout. Chris provided valuable info on where to visit and good local restaurants to eat at. When getting takeaway he was more than happy to provide plates & utensils. Due to not being located on a busy road, traffic noise is minimal.

Room Tip: The spa suite suits a family of four. Note the suite is a 2 room apartment not a 2 bedroom apartment. i.e there is not a separate lounge room.

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.
