“unique”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

What an interesting and unique find! Very quaint, full of an amazing collection of antiques and curios. We spent three days here and found it so amazing, every time you walk into a room there is something else that catches the eye. Graeme is a congenial and helpful host who is very happy to help with information and suggestions of places to go and things to do. Although certainly not to everyone's taste, we were very comfortable and were glad we stayed in rather than in a sterile hotel room. Well located within walking distance (so long as you don't mind the steep pathways) to centre of town and short drive to Echo Point.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be a little different, four poster beds elaborate with canopes. The room with spa...

We stayed for two nights on part of a wider trip around Australia. Being mid winter we thought that there would be a good choice of available accommodation but that was not the case and Sirens was one of the few with availability. Arriving late evening it was a warm welcome with electric blankets on the bed as well as central heating running. We had been warned about the interesting artifacts around the house and the rooms were certainly full of them - it is not a place for children and the books in the bedroom drawers should certainly be shown to children. The breakfasts were very good and the proprietor was happy to tell us about the area although some of the guide books were rather old. It is close enough to walk into Katoomba where there are plenty of restaurants to get an evening meal and there are numerous fantastic sites to visit - Wentworth Falls was beautiful. Overall it was an interesting stay.

We booked this fantastic little hotel for a weekend in the Blue Mountains and wern't disapointed. The hotel itself is filled with interesting artifacts, furiture and books from yesteryear - so much charm... I wish we had another night to spend! The breakfast was fantastic and the host was lovely... it felt like being in someone's inviting home!

If you are after a bland 5 star hotel this place may not be for you - but if you are after charm and something different I would highly recommend it!

An excellent option for those loking for a short stay in the Mountains. Clean, cheap and a quality stay. Lots of eclectic objects to look/wonder at! As others have said, probably more a couples/singles place rather than family as just way too much potential for younger kids to do some damage with all the various objets d'art on display. Friendly and welcoming host. We had to leave early (had a 45km run to do!) so didn't get to enjoy the cooked breakfast but our request for an early brekfast was met with good grace.

Stayed with wife and kid for 3 nights. It is more a couples place than for kids (given the relatively small size and large number of antiques and artwork around the place) but our 5 year old was made very welcome. The owner cooked a nice breakfast, offered lots of travel tips, and even drove us to several places downtown when we needed a ride. The other guests were nice people too. Enjoyed it.

When we arrived our host Graeme took care to show us all the interesting things to do in the area and shared his and previous visitors' opinions of all the possibilities. He had several albums of pictures, guides and articles on items of local interest. This helped us set up our day and a half of hiking well. The house and furnishings are fascinating with an eclectic mix of collectables, objects d'art, antiques, cameras, books, etc. You could easily spend an hour or more just looking through the items he has collected. Our room was very comfortable, clean and nicely furnished. It is in a very quiet neighborhood close enough to hike to the train station if desired though perhaps a bit long if carrying bags. It is just a couple of blocks from the bus line so use your $2.20 and save the legs for the mountains.
The breakfast he fixed was a substantial full English breakfast with additional toast, cereals, yogurt, and fruit available. We enjoyed Graeme and his interesting B&B very much. We also appreciate all the help he gave us to make our visit to the Blue Mountains an enjoyable experience.

Room Tip: They are all unique. Let Graeme guide your experience...

We stayed 2 nights at Sirens in mid April 2012. On arrival we were greeted by our host Graeme and taken on the 'grand tour' of the property and given lots of advise and tips on where to eat & what to do during our stay. We'd already made eating arrangements (see separate reviews of Ankis & Gustissimmos) but took his advise on what to do and we're glad we did.

We were staying in the spa room which we found to be a bit cramped (the very comfy bed takes up most of the space) and in need of a serious revitalisation. When it was first decorated it would have been a beautiful room. But now the wallpaper is starting to part company with the walls down the seams and the blinds in both bathrooms were water stained and shabby. Having said that everything spotlessly clean and the decanters of water and port were a nice touch. I'm happy to take advise here, having never stayed in a B&B of any description in my life before but I would have thought the room would have been serviced while we were out but that was not the case. We had to make our own bed and wash our glasses.

Breakfast was a great, a solid English affair that left us without the need for lunch on both days and could not be faulted.

Don't let the description of a property showing signs gentrified neglect put you off. From my experience of the area this is indicative of the Blue Mountains.Too many establishments catering for not enough tourists means there are no winners. It's all part of the charm of the region.
