“A gem in the Blue Mountains”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

This is absolutely the most welcoming and enjoyable B&B I have stayed at in a while. Peter and Suzanne take care of you when you're in town! The house is furnished with an impeccable attention to detail, with the added charm of antique styled furnishings. The location of the place is a convenient 10 minute walk to Echo Point (perfect if you're trying to catch the sunrise at Three Sisters). It is also a short 10 minute walk to the city center. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the lovely breakfast conversations with the hosts, and their helpful tips on hikes and trails around town. This is truly a gem in the blue mountains!

My partner and I need a midweek break and were lucky enough to find this gem in Katoomba. Very friendly owners and staff, neat and tidy rooms and guest area (not long since renovated??). The included breakfast was fabulous. Located within a shortish walking distance of the town and The Three Sisters. The only reason I'm not giving 5/5 is that our room was at the front of the house and there was some noise from the road...it didn't worry us but might concern others. Our visit exceeded expectations, highly recommended.

My wife and I stayed one night in Katoomba and were very pleased we chose Lurline House. It is conveniently situated near the town and the Blue Mountain Scenic World and Echo Point. Our room was beautifully furnished and very spacious. Breakfast was delicious and I liked the idea of it being cooked in the breakfast room. Peter and Suzanne were wonderful hosts - welcoming and helpful. Amazing value for money.

My family took over half the accommodation at Lurline House for six days. We were looked after so well it was hard to leave on Tuesday morning. All the staff were wonderful. Great breakfasts and very helpful with options to get around Katoomba and the rest of the Blue Mountains areas.

I took my mum to the Blue Mtns for two days one night for mothers day and we had a wonderful stay at Lurline House. Firstly the hosts are very friendly and helpful. The estate was warm and cosy and beautifully decorated. My mum is already planning a trip back to Lurlines house with her friends. Highly Recommended!

Lurline House is a classic presentation of Australian heritage with style. The bedrooms are very well furnished and comfortable and are complemented with modern and efficient bathrooms. Peter and Suzanne really add to the Lurline "experience" with their warm and helpful welcome and thei provide a quality breakfast in a dining room with wonderful ambience. This is really a very classy place to stay.

We were very pleased and suprised to be led out to a private villa on our arrival. It was great to have the extra space and privacy.
The room was neat and quaint with the four poster bed. The spa bath was wonderful after a full day of sight seeing.
Peter was helpful, when we spoke to him about going to Jenolan Caves, he offered a discount voucher which turned out to give us 50% off tickets.
Breakfast is impeccable and the attention of the hosts is lovely and very friendly.

The only negatives I have is that the bed is a firm mattress. The curtains are not fully block out so the morning sun woke us up very early. And there is no full length mirror.

All in all an excellent experience!
