“family roadtrip through Sydney”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2013

Visiting friends in Sydney and we came across the Echo Point Motor Inn, Katoomba. The room was clean and spacious, the location was fantastic! A short walk from the beautiful Three Sisters look out (Blue Mountains) and a short drive from the centre of gorgeous Katoomba. A great base for exploring the Blue Mountains. Staff very professional and pleasant, BBQ facilities or restaurants near by - very impressed.

It's an old motel and the rooms are old. But it's clean and comfortable. Basic. Has microwave and fridge which is nice. Breakfast which was included was perfect- crumpets, porridge, toast, cereals, fruits...
So nothing modern/fancy but clean and excellent location.

Location: The first words that come into mind about the location is: Serene, Tranquil
Do not expect it to be very modern. The feel is laid back, which gels with the place.
Rooms are nice and clean. Free parking.
Three sisters viewing point is just 2 minutes walk from this place. Fantastic location.

We arrived on a Sunday night when rates are much cheaper than the weekend. This hotel has all the basics including coffee set-up, mini fridge plus a microwave. When we checked in, the manager provided recommendations for dinner including discounts and advice on sightseeing in the area. A basic continental breakfast was also available for a reasonable price. We were within walking distance to the visitor center.

No doubt the motel is in a Prime Location ,other than that, there is nothing more to add.
You shouldn't be expecting anything great from this place.
We had a family room for 2 nights.Room is small with an ensuite which is even more smaller.
The room is really outdated with 3 beds which really need replacement.
The ensuite had shower curtains which were really dirty.
Service was requested on Day 2 .All they did was rearrange the bedding with dirt still staying on ground.
Utilising some money from the accomodation costs should be enough to make this room presentable.

If you want a clean, comfortable, quiet place to stay which is within walking distance of Echo Point look out, then this is the place for you. The staff are friendly and helpful - they even put on the heaters before we arrived so the room would be toasty warm for us - and provided maps and tourist advice. Continental breakfast is a steal at $6 and includes porridge, muesli and cereals, toast, crumpets, stewed fruit, juice and tea and coffee. Our room had a kettle and fridge as well as a table and chairs for eating at and free parking right outside your room (a bonus as those who drive to Echo Point have to pay for parking!) I highly recommend staying here if you want good value for money in an exceptional location.
