“Very cosy place and comfortable”
Reviewed 3 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Arrived in Katoomba after a long flight from the UK. Landlord was kind to let us check-in early (thumbs up for that!). We walked from the station to the place probably 20mins walk. The house was in a nice quiet area and very nice entrance.

It's a 3 bedroom place and ample of room in the living room. Comfortable beds and decent clean linen. Heated blankets for extra warmth. One toilet and wet room for showers very clean.

We only used the BBQ for dinners and sat outside for the meals. Not bad at all. Very nice garden and can hear birds in the morning. We went winter time it gets really cold. Landlord advised us its best to burn wood all night (nice cosy fireplace in the living room). That worked a treat the house was warm all night.

Walking distance back to town. Nice old high street. After a day out in Blue Mountains, taxi ride is not a bad option about $10. Not too bad. Disadvantage for us is no Wi-fi. Actually found that a lot of places don't provide Wi-fi as standard :(

“Our Blue Mountain Experience”
Reviewed 29 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Ratnas Retreat is a comfortable 3 bedroom house, well situated outside the CBD in Katoomba. We were made to feel very much at home. We did however have a problem with the TV set and could not get the picture to remain on, fortunately our weather was glorious and we were out most of the days and evenings so didn't need it on for long. We would not hesitate to refer this property to our friends

“Reached all expectations.”
Reviewed 24 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We were very impressed with Ratnas Retreat. The accommodation was ideally situated down a quiet lane in Katoomba. An ideal base for those wishing to explore the Blue Mountains. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and comfortable. We really felt at home. I would have no hesitation in recommending Ratnas Retreat.

“Extremely clean and homely stay”

From the pictures the house looked dated but I went with it because it was a great price and I was taking my young adult and teenage daughters with me and meeting my cousin, so much more economical than 2 Hotel rooms.

It was no problem finding the house. The owner gives you instructions on how to get the key and on walking in the first thing you notice is how clean and tidy the house is. They also supplied firewood and, as it was a freezing couple of days, got the log fire going upon our return from exploring the large antique store in town.

The house is a short drive into Katoomba, so easy to reach for all of the attractions. When we return, it felt like coming home as it is such a cosy, comfortable place.

I would really like to return in summer as it also has a lovely back garden with a picnic table which I would enjoy using but was far too cold when we were there.
