“Mountain Getaway!”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

Luxurious and classy!
The decor is beautiful with so many extras which make for a very enjoyable stay.
The delicious home-cooked breakfast is a stand-out!
Great location, although you would need a car to get around the area from here.

Room Tip: Our room which overlooked the car park with mountain views beyond was quiet and private.

Loved it, felt very spoilt, wonderful hosts took care off us in every way. The decor is spectacular as are the rooms. Beautiful gardens, highly recommended. We enjoyed our stay tremendously and would recommend it to anyone staying in the Blue Mountains.

Lovely quiet spot. Cups of tea and bikkies aplenty. Home-cooked breakfast, beautiful furnishings and artwork and our own cinema - couldn't ask for more! Choice of individually decorated rooms a great feature.

It's a home away from home. John and Sipha made us feel warm and welcome during the 2 days while we're there, first time to the blue mountains. The austalis room was spotless, comfy, and the bathtub fabulous. John was a great company, suggested restaurants to visit, and helped plan a good itinerary. This is the best of all hotels that we stayed during our 16 nights vacation to australia.

Stayed here for 2 nights over the weekend and had such a wonderful time with my partner. Accommodation was very comfortable with everything you could want (incl heated floors in the bathroom and all the latest movies to watch from your room or in house cinema). John and his wife were fantastic hosts! Made us feel so welcome from the moment we stepped in. With tea and cakes on arrival, water and fruit to help ourselves to, and the best breakfast you could ask for! Location on the hwy didn't bother us at all when inside and liked the short walk to the train station.

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!
