Stayed at the Sky Rider with work a for week.
The outside looks a bit run down, the dinning room is the same.
However the rooms were a nice surprise. Well set out and roomy, bar fridge and tea and coffee facilities. The bed was comfy and the heater kept the room lovely and toasty.
Breakfast was very good value and always well cooked.
Lots of parking.
I would of expected the road noise to be annoying, being so close to the highway but I couldn't hear a thing in my room.
Only negative the rooms had for me was the shower, not the best shower head and the water pressure and temp went up and down.
Overall great value accommodation in the mountains, only ten dollar taxi into town and all the staff were very friendly and helpful.

The exterior leaves a little to be desired but the rooms were cosy and clean. The room warmed up very well and the shower was great! Will certainly stay again on my return to Katoomba. Awesome value for money.

Thank you for your review. We receive quite a few comments regarding the exterior of the motel and we have taken them all on board. Our focus over the last 14 months has been the interior of the rooms, new carpets, re painting rooms and bathroom renovations. However we will be commencing renovations of the exterior of the motel next month. We have already completed the re painting of the pool ready for summer. We hope the fresh new look will assist us in ticking all the boxes for our guests.

My boyfriend and I spent one night at the Sky Rider Motor Inn and it was very enjoyable. The staff were friendly and helpful, the bedrooms were made up very nicely and the electric blankets on the bed were AMAZING! In fact, the bed was one of the best I have ever had the pleasure to sleep in. The breakfast in the morning is great value and walking into the dining room with a log fire was so lovely! The food was cooked brilliantly and they are very generous with servings. We paid just $5.00 dollars extra for a 'better' room and it was certainly worth it as our bedroom was much bigger than others which was nice. This is a really great little motel and I would definitely recommend to others visiting Katoomba - all in all, great value!

Room Tip: Upgrade to a slightly more expensive room to make the most of staying here - although they are all nice!

Booked 2 nights accommodation directly with the staff and found it to be clean, quiet location, comfortable bed, great new management that would do anything to assist us in our stay and requests. This Motor Inn has been recently refurbished and the rooms are 100% better since our last stay. Our room had t.v., coffee/tea making facilities, toaster, electric blankets, small heater & telephone. Breakfast options are: room service or eat in the breakfast room. Continental breakfast cost $7.50, other individual hot options beginning $8.00 and a full continental with a hot breakfast for $14.00.
The new management are wonderfully friendly, informative and helpful. Will stay again and would recommend if you are looking for a budget place that is all the above and close enough to drive to all the sight-seeing areas.

Room Tip: Family rooms are at one end.

Thank you for your positive review. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and as a returning guest we are happy to hear your feedback regarding our renovations. We are still working on the motel and still have some bathrooms to renovate but all rooms have been painted and new carpet where required. The exterior of the motel will be repainted before the end of the year and we hope this will help with he overall look and feel of the motel.
The breakfast is always very popular and we try to keep our prices reasonable so that we can accommodate all budgets.
We look forward to you visiting again soon.

The staff was very friendly and overall the facilities were great for a budget motel. The housekeeping one morning was quite zealous (9:15am) but they did a great job and gave us new towels even though we weren't expecting it. The shower curtain was a bit short and let water onto the bathroom floor but that's the only small negative we had. Definitely recommend this location to friends

Room Tip: Would need to have own transport to stay here. The higher the room number the further away from reception.

Thank you for your review. We are please you enjoyed your stay with us. The housekeeping for our staying guests usually does not begin until later in the morning so I apologise for the early wake up. Regarding the shower curtain we will look at the issues with water escaping into the bathroom. Part of our renovation plan is to replace the remaining shower curtains with shower screens so this will eliminate any issues. We hope you may return in the future.
