We had a fantastic time at St Elmos!
ULTRA convenient location if roaming Katoomba Street and visiting its 6 fantastic bookshops (esp. Velvet Fog!) is your thing! We didn't need the car the whole time we stayed!
We stayed in room 22. An interesting little room. Quite a comfy bed complete with electric blankets (absolutely necessary in July!)
Unfortunately our room must have been under a family room and the kids got up just after 5am. After 3 hours of trying to ignore them jumping on the floors and running around like mad things we gave up and went for the breakfast room. (Not managements fault of course, kids will be kids. But if you're not planning on getting up at dawn, an upstairs room would be preferable!)
The free breakfast was the life saver! It cheered me up no end! An ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS breakfast was laid on -
everything your heart desired! I tucked in to a fantasticly thick mushroom omelette, bacon, eggs, HASH BROWNS! (yum!), grilled tomatos with cheese (extra yum!), tea (if only there had been raw sugar all my prayers would be answered ;), various juices. And there was MORE! So much more. Everyone in that room was happy!
I can't say enough about the breakfast. And the young lass who worked non-stop clearing tables, seating guests, refilling trays of delicious food and just generally being friendly and hard working was an absolute star!
Even if you're not staying, go in and buy the breakfast! Its the best!!
We were lucky the second night as the kids had moved on. It was a lovely quiet place, clean and convenient.
We are a young couple and enjoyed our stay. It was a bargain at $106/night including breakfast.
I will be staying here on our next trip to Katoomba without a doubt!
Hint: DON'T go to Katoomba in July!!! Tooo cold!
We arrived in the early evening just in time to see the 'snow'. I was most impressed as had never seen snow before (the locals tell me it was just sleet. Still! A nice thrill on arrival!)
