Very hospitable, warm welcome received with clear directions provided on where to go etc. Echo point is within walking distance and from there you can take the bus to everywhere else. The room is very clean with heated blankets, feels homely!

Our stay was comfortable. The motel is well located on the Hop on Hop off bus route.
I would have liked access to an on site laundry. There was however a laundry service. I would stay at this motel again.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms are on a second floor. There is no lift.

We were welcomed by the friendly manager who helped us with local attractions and maps including helping to book dinner that night at Pins Restaurant. The rooms were clean and spacious and warm when we arrived in the cold. Loved the no smoking on the premises. Free WiFi was also great. We stayed two nights and would stay there again.
Good location with walking distance to Echo Point and free onsite parking.

Hi just like the photo. Queen sized bed and one single bed, very warm new decor, new bed linen. Loved the comfort of the bed. Friends liked their bed too. Location convenient to local attractions and easy free parking and Wi-Fi to enjoy. The room was serviced daily too so it was nice to return to made up beds and empty bins. Thanks.

Room Tip: If you can score an upstairs rooms it feels more private off the street than downstairs.

As soon as we got there, we were helped by friendly staff who provided us with maps and a list of attractions close by. The rooms were very clean and tidy, quite spacious and modern also. We only stayed the one night but this motel really made our visit to the mountains really comfortable and we would definately visit here again!

I all most forgot to mention that i don't think you can get a better location, its located in such close proximity to everything in katoomba.

I stayed for one night only in Room 12 upstairs. It was spacious and very clean. Comfortable bed and nice and quiet. Manager, Max was very friendly and helpful and I would stay there again and recommend to others who are coming to the Mountains.

We stayed for two nights in the Spa room under the stairs. It is very cosy and private. Quiet and dark at night. It almost feels as though there is no one else there. The room is a little smaller than usual but has everything required, including a little table for breakfast and heated towel rails! And you get to park your car right outside without having to climb stairs.
