“Warm, clean and comfortable room”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

We stayed in room 3 for two nights, room is small but warm, clean and comfortable. The staff is helpful, nice and friendly. The location is very close to echo point. Breaky was very simple, cereal, breads, coffee and juices. Good place to stay for couples.

Stayed June 2014, travelled as a couple

The 3 Sisters Motel is situated just five walk from the famous view point from where visitors can see the 3 Sisters rock formation. It is also a short walk to the Scenic World attraction. The motel rooms are placed around a square courtyard, with the eating room and reception at the entrance. Rooms are simple, but clean and comfortable. The heaters work well, which are needed in the cooler months. The reception staff are welcoming and helpful. Breakfast is self-service and can be a crush if all the guests decide to arrive at the same time. Worth get to breakfast early.

This is an unique and nice motel, just simple, clean and good value for money. The staff are friendly and we enjoyed the sincere serving. Breakfast is simple, yet warm and nice. We booked a family room, room is spacious, clean and 5 of us very comfortable. Definitely will return to 3 Sisters again.

Booking 3 Sisters was made very easy as it is one of those rare hotels whose room rate doesn't increase as soon as you include your children i.e. we paid $180 per night for a family room, and we didn't have to pay extra per child (we had three small children). This included a continental breakfast which I thought was very nice. After arriving in Katoomba by train from Sydney we decided to walk to the motel, and even though it was on the far side of town, we thought it was a nice walk. Once there we were quite comfortable in our room and then it was a very easy walk to see the Three Sisters, and to Scenic World. At the advice of the hotel staff we went to dinner at the RSL who provided a free shuttle to and from the hotel, which was really convenient and the food there was excellent. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The Hop on Hop off bus stopped around the corner from the hotel so it was very easy to access.

Very good value accommodation in excellent location.

We were assigned room 1 which we found to be quite noisy early morning as we were adjoining reception/breakfast area.

The room was a decent size and had everything you need but although dated there was no wear and tear on any of the furnishings. A comfortable bed, fridge, TV, telephone, substantial wardrobe and good sized bathroom. Hairdryers are available from reception and I have to say it was the best hairdryer I have ever used!!

The lady who looked after our room was most attentive and asked if there was anything we needed. I found this to be a lovely touch - thank you.

Parking is superb - right outside of your room and allocated to your room number. Great idea.

A lovely walk to the 3 Sisters and really only does take minutes plus a bus stop right outside of the motel.

I would recommend this motel but please remember it is a motel and not a hotel so you are not getting all the extras but you are not paying for them either.

We stayed in the self contained cottage, which is right next door to the motel. It is old, but well maintained and well set up for two couples or two families travelling together. It has a lovely verandah out the back where you can sit to eat a meal and enjoy the wonderful mountain birdlife in the back yard. The only drawback was the floorboards in the kitchen and dining room were loose and very squeaky so it was hard to sneak out to the bathroom at night without everyone hearing you!

Stayed here over easter, we were in room 3 for one night. Lady owner seemed lovely.
Fridge wasn't turned on when we got in room which was really annoying as we had an esky full of things from our travels. Doors open up onto bed.
Wifi password is advertised everywhere and is free but you can only get one bar of signal if you're lucky and we were in one of the closest rooms to the main building! Paid for hot breakfast. Expecting a small buffet, but instead got the choice of eggs, bacon and tomatoes or there was some bread for toast and peaches. Wouldn't recommend paying for hot breakfast. I'm sure there are other nice locations for breakfast in Katoomba. Also, shower kept going hot and cold throughout both mine and my partners showers. Which was a let down.

Also, just a helpful tip. Driveway is VERY steep for a car - Wouldn't recommend anyone elderly or that has any mobility issues to stay here.
