“Excellent B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2014

Stayed 2 nights here on our recent trip to Australia.

It was clear from the outset that absolutely no expense had been spared on fitting out Katoomba Manor and everything in the B&B was top quality. John was an excellent host and couldn't do enough to help us including having our room ready for an early arrival and offering and giving us a lift back to the station when we were leaving. Breakfasts were cooked to order and excellent.

The only minor criticism of the accommodation we had was that the room was slightly small and not suitable for the amount of luggage we had ( required for 4 week trip from UK ).

Although we really liked the B&B I think if we ever return to the Blue Mountains we would stay in Leura rather than Katoomba which we found to be a bit run down as a town.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Parisien Suite which was pretty small, perhaps other rooms are larger

We really enjoyed staying with the very welcoming John and Sipha in their beautiful guest house.
Nothing was too much trouble, breakfast was delicious, the beds extremely comfortable and great access to everything we wanted to see and do.
We highly recommend staying here, if ever we go back we will be sure to certainly do so!

Beautiful place to stay. John and Sipha were the perfect hosts, friendly, knowledgeable and the breakfast was amazing. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. The grounds are very pretty and they are obviously very keen gardeners. We made use of their small home theatre on our last night, taking our own cheese and crackers and bottle of wine in with us. Huge screen, surround sound, hundreds of movies to choose from. Thank you.

Spent a weekend with John and Sipha in Katoomba in October.
We stayed in the Louis suite, fantastic marble bathroom, towels were think and comfortable. Bathrobes were available aswell. Great toiletries.
Breakfast was excellent, so much better than most hotels we've stayed at before. Cooked to your liking and delicious. Very helpful owners, tea and coffee upon arrival and every afternoon, great tips and inspiration on what to do in the Blue Mountains. Would definitely recommend it!
Only a short walk to centre of Katoomba. Very easy to find out way around.
Free parking and wifi.

Room Tip: We had the Louis suite, which was great!
