“Great family stay, close to everywhere & excellent value for money!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2014

I don't normally write reviews, but was so pleased at the value for money, location, service & facilities during our stay at this motel that it definitely rates a mention! While the motel is not the most modern its in-line with most other buildings in the area, & it certainly still easily meets every need & also delivers a family friendly stay in a great central location! We enjoyed a lovely continental buffet & bacon & egg breakfast each morning & the staff on both days were delightful with excellent communication. The room was very clean & the beds comfortable & extra pillows & blankets were quickly provided upon request. The aircon worked well & the free wifi was fantastic as far as the kids were concerned & really good value to be included at no extra charge, additionally the flat screen tv modernised the room, along with the paintings on the wall. The bathroom, while older style, was functional & clean. I'd recommend staying here to any family that is looking for a good central place to stay in the mountains. It was only around an hours drive to Jenolan caves (there's a great lolly store along the way breaks up the drive for the kids! - ''the lolly bug'') & its a 2min drive to scenic world & if you get there before 9.30am there's discounts on entry tickets (& that's easy to do staying so close at this motel). Katoomba also has a nice little gingerbread cafe up the road from the motel & Grecos nearby in the main street also offers good value easy family dining (fish/chicken/chips) if you choose not to use the dining room option at the motel. The motel is also a 5 min drive away from ''The Edge'' cinema which also has a games arcade & it's a 15min drive to the lovely main street of Leura with quaint little shops & a store for dogs the kids will love! ..Once back at the motel, parking is a breeze directly outside your room door & easy to bring things in & out of the car. If I could make any suggestion it would be to include some saucers with the coffee cups in the rooms, but that's a personal preference only, other than that complimentary tea, coffee, milk, glasses & a good working kettle is supplied in the room, along with fluffy towels & complimentary toiletries. We enjoyed our stay at 3 Sisters! A+

Room Tip: We stayed in family room #19 & it was directly across from reception & the motel dining room...

First time travelling on my own and decided to stay at the 3 Sisters Motel. I wanted somewhere super convenient to access the walking trails, and somewhere quiet to sleep. This motel ticked all the boxes. The manager Pat was super friendly and made me feel really comfortable from the start and was always accessible even though he was working alone (when we met he saw I was wearing a rugby league shirt and after talking he gave me several posters of his rugby league team he created to give to some friends, what a legend!). I stayed in Room 1 which was right next to reception. I found it very quite, clean and had everything I needed including free wifi, air-conditioning and foxtel! Although the outside of the building is mostly original, the rooms are great and has the convenience of parking your car right in front of your room. Reception offers a great breakfast and the bacon and eggs were delicious. If travelling alone it is the best stay and for what you get the price is fantastic. It's an easy walk to the three sisters and katoomba falls and there are plenty of bus shuttles to take you were you like. I had my car with me but easy for travellers who need public transport. I plan to travel again to the blue mountains and I will definitely be staying there again. Highly recommended!

You can't get much closer to the edge of the cliffs than this place. It is only a 2 minute walk to the trails at the 3 sisters lookout or echo point.

The motel itself is well kept, but dated. The gent who was around when I arrived was a little pre-occupied, but was nice to chat with later on in the day. I think he was a one-man band, clerk, housekeep, bartender, etc. I had no issues with this.

The cost is in line with budget accommodations. The place isn't luxury, I'd call it efficient, but it offers WIFI and parking. I enjoyed my stay there. The only downside is that you are about a 15 minute walk uphill to the town center which is where one would eat and shop. It's an ok trade off since you have to pick to either be close to town or the bush. you choose....

Had a family room for two nights. Good clean room. Excellent location for going to echo point. Great service. Room rate included brekky and WiFi what else would you want in a motel. The main queen bed mattress was a bit soft from use but nothing too serious.

Overall a Good place to stay. The room Are okay, but the service is poor. No cleaning or empting the the trashcans. The breakfast is continental and and okay. If You watt eggs and bacon it's possible, but You have to sit and wait for a very long time. 20 min or more.
Location is Good and You can walk Around to several turist spots.

The motel is in a convenient location - close to many places to interest. It is quite clean and adequately furnished. Cant say much about the service though. Through out our 4 day stay we see only one female staff, sitting at the counter and always on the computer. She is pan faced all the time and not very helpful. That is why I am giving this motel a 3 star rating.

We stayed for 2 nights at the 3 sisters motel in Winter. The room we stayed was roomy and comfortable, plenty of parking and very easy getting in and out of the motel. The part I loved the most was how close the motel is to the 3 sisters, we managed to wake up early in the morning and walked up to the 3 sisters and took some incredible photos, walked back and had Breakfast, nothing to write home about, but at least they offered breakfast!

One downside I think is the distance from the local shops, definitely not walking distance, but if you have a car then there's really no problem.
