“It certainly has character, but could do with a little polish. The restaurant is very good, but pick your room.”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

The apostrophe-free (apart from one old sign) St Mounts is an old house, with plenty of character. There is a formal room available for guests to sit in, as well as a very large breakfast-cum-television-cum-computer room at the back of the house, with plenty of space for guests. The breakfast is a simple self-service continental breakfast (which suits us), with tea and coffee available at any stage.

The house is set slightly back from the Great Western Highway, a very busy road, but Australian trucks are very noisy, and the house is on the slope at the eastern edge of the village, so trucks are either enthusiastically accelerating out of Blackheath, or noisily braking as they descend the hill into the village. (We assume that the signs asking truck drivers not to use compression braking are some kind of Australian joke, that doesn't translate easily).

We had booked the king room at the back of the house, but could still hear the traffic, and the trains as well. Our room (9) was very large, being two rooms knocked together, with the bathroom in what we took to be an extension at the back. This was fairly large, although some of the fittings were sadly rather more plastic than suits the house.

Touches such as a box of tissues, and more than two hooks attached to the wall (with hangers only for the hotel's dressing-gowns) would have improved the room. Dripping taps should have been rectified well before we stayed; a slightly more self-critical eye would have helped. Our room gave directly on to the communal breakfast room, but all the guests staying at the same time as us were very quiet.

The free wifi isn't especially reliable, but when it isn't functioning the staff kindly take the immediate action drill of turning off the router, which seems to work.

The restaurant, downstairs, is very good, and a welcome facility on a cold winter's night in the Blue Mountains.

The proprietor, Jack, is very interesting.

We would certainly stay at St Mounts again, but only in a room at the back of the house.
