We stayed at 3 Sisters Motel during our 1-night at Katoomba. Since this is a drive-in motel, we can't expect big rooms like an apartment although it was comfortable enough for the three of us (me, the wife, and infant son). Of course, with the cot placed in the room, this did make it seem quite cramped. At the same time, the toilet still had the "old school" hot-and-cold dial faucets and it was quite a hassle to turn both on, in order to get warm water (it was quite cold at night). I wish the Motel can look at upgrading this to the "single head" faucet that many hotels are now using.
The location more than makes up for these minor inconveniences, however. Even though we decided to take the 3-minute drive to Echo Point, it was also only a 10 minute walk away. While we paid for the parking (operated by the local Council), the Point itself was free and from there, great views of the landmark Three Sisters as well as Jamison Valley could be seen. Scenic World, on the other hand, was slightly further (10 minutes drive) although still walkable from the 3 Sisters Motel.
As for food options, while the Motel had an in-house restaurant that was open for brekkie and dinner (we had our morning meal there, in fact, as it came with our room rates), we decided to head to Katoomba Town instead. After a short, 5 minute drive, we went for great Italian cuisine at PapaDino Restaurant along the main road.
In short, for those of you planning a trip to the Blue Mountains, what better place to stay than at 3 Sisters Motel? The location is just so convenient and nightly rates also affordable (our room was priced at AUD165/night, btw), compared with the two luxury hotels nearby (Lilianfels and Echos, both were former Starwood Luxury Collection properties).
