“Cosy, beautifully decorated”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

We enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea with an interesting selection of teas all served correctly in pots with leaf tea. Fine china matches the surroundings, understated elegance.

It is also a cozy place for an after dinner drink the bar has a fine selection of single malts.

“High Tea at Lilianfels is a must if passing through Katoomba”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Even if you are not staying at this lovely hotel, you can enjoy a little bit of history whilst having a delicious High Tea or morning/afternoon tea in their spacious lounge in peaceful surroundings. The home-made scones are wonderful if having a Devonshire Tea. The home made biscuits are also great. The High Tea is divine. Suggest that you ring to book a table beforehand. Enjoy!

“Lovely Food and Atmosphere”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

We ate at The Lounge at Lilianfels two nights ago for my birthday while staying at Echoes next door. The ambience was great, the lounge is peaceful and beautifully decorated. The food was well presented and most enjoyable while the service could not be faulted. We would certainly visit there again and recommend to others.
