“Perfect Relaxing Mountain Retreat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2010

Welcoming arrival and helpful, friendly advice on the area. Superb breakfasts and lovely comfortable rooms - we had the one with the spa bath in. Log fire to relax by in the evenings with a glass of wine or 2!!!

My husband and I went to this gorgeous place for our wedding anniversary and we were surprised with the service. John and Cathy are simply the best hosts and for the whole stay we felt like we're in our own country house. Breakfast is to die for and wine by the fireplace is a must do before you go out for dinner!

This was our second visit to Edgelinks. We discovered this place "by accident" four years ago and, based on our previous experience decided to stay again. We knew that it had changed hands since our first visit so we were not quite sure what to expect - we were not disappointed!!

Under the masterful hands of its new owners, John and Kathy, Edgelinks has become a place of remarkable elegance - a mix of modern and classical decor that blend beautifully to form a graceful environment. Together with comfortable rooms, spotlessly clean bathrooms, and other little touches like the carafe of sherry to greet you, and wine glasses inviting you to pour a glass of wine and wander into the lounge to relax in front of the fire, make for a wonderful experience.

Being a bit of an "egg and bacon" person I was not sure what to expect from the "gourmet continental" breakfast, but again, I was not disappointed! Every day brought a different experience. The poached pears were fantastic and, to show the standards set by "the chef" John apologised for a slight delay in breakfast on our last day as the poached eggs had to be perfectly cooked and expertly presented.

We would highly recommend Edgelinks to anyone looking for a comfortable, relaxed and exquisitely rendered experience - it's already on our list for our next trip "down under".

We drove up to Katoomba for the weekend from Sydney and were totally blown away with hospitality and kindness offered to us by John & Kathy. We felt entirely at home the whole weekend and never felt like we were intruding. Our hosts managed to be discrete but also warm and generous with local information and suggestions for dinner. We went to Avalon as suggested by John and had one of the most lovely nights!

John and Kathy have a wonderful artistic flair that flows through the entire property from the furnishings to the garden. It has a modern yet plush style that is so lacking in the mountains--too many doilies and dusty cushions--yet Edgelinks manages to combine both charm and elegance with a modern twist that is very appealing. The living room with its open fire and mix of both vintage and modern decor deserves a spread in "Vogue Living"!

Our room was just lovely with a 4 poster bed, spa bath, candles, robes, tea and coffee and even beautiful fresh cut flowers form the garden...everything we needed. It is a stunning, welcoming and cosy place to stay with the breakfast absolutely superb. Both mornings we were treated to a 3 course breakfast by the fire and my boyfriend (who complains about EVERYTHING!!) loved every minute!. We cannot wait to stay again and see the further renovations John & Kathy are making.

Highly recommended!! I cannot rave about it enough :-) Thank you to you both.

What a fantastic place to stay. John and Kathy carry off the perfect hosting in a wonderful little get away. Would be perfect for a small intimate wedding, special birthday or other function. Or just for a Romantic Weekend getaway. Food Great, John and Kathy Great, recommended by them to eat at Avalon; is a must for great food and slightly scatty service. Loved it. Thanks John and Kathy.

the best thing about our stay was the host of the house. he is very friendly and made us quite comfortable and welcomed! he is so kind that he offered us a lift to the station on our way home. THANKS JOHN!
the location is excellent, its far enough from the main part of town so you feel sedcluded. yet close enough that you could walk to town in about 20 mins.
everything was great from the service to the room. it was what we expected and needed. we will definatly go again.

John & Kathy of Edgelinks Bed & Breakfast offers a friendly, warm and welcoming getaway, set in a peaceful, yet convenient location near the heart of Katoomba.

The suite was just perfect - beautifully decorated, superb four poster bed with electric blankets for the chilly winter, fluffy robes, candle lit spa, nice and spacious witha lovely garden outlook.

The highlight of the Bed & Breakfast was the breakfast and service. I was amazed at the 2 course breakfast plus fruit platter that was brought and served in our suite each morning. John went above and beyond with his gourmet cooking - such a treat! John and Kathy were great to chat with, and offered any advise needed for a great stay. Great value for your money.

The guesthouse is very close (5 min) drive into Katoomba town.
