This hotel in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales of Australia was built in 1880. We enjoyed our stay in a hotel which is dubbed as second only to Raffles of Singapore. The Carrington is in the Classic Victorian style but has been modernised to a very high standard and yet maintains the Victorian ambiance with dark polished woods and high ceilings c/w full A/C. Our room was spacious and had a Victorian bath and separate shower all with modern plumbing. The effect was a very clever and effective mix which gave it a feel of being in 1880 in a hotel that had just been built. The staff were courteous and helpful. The breakfast was plentiful and tasty buffet style. Diners were seated around large tables in groups of 6 or 8. Two negatives: from our coach we had to carry our luggage up about20 steps into the hotel,then the tiny lift being heavily oversubscribed,I carried our cases up the staircase to the 1st floor. The hotel is central in Katoomba and we had an evening stroll through the town which had bars and restaurants aplenty. This hotel would be an ideal base to explore the Blue Mountains . A safari suit and pith helmet would not be out of place here.
