Reviewed 26 July 2012

As this was a cheap shopper docket deal hubby and I were very pleasantly surprised by the three course dinner on our night of arrival and fantastic buffet breakfast both mornings of our stay. The food was really amazing and the faulty towers waiter really kept us amused. He is a very talented man. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean with a massive kiing size bed. The place may be old but it was comfortable and warm. Everything we wanted to see was close by and we used the trolley bus which was included in the price to travel around Katoomba and Leura. All in all good value for money and a very relaxing stay.

Room Tip: We had a room facing carpark on same level as reception. No complaints with room.

The rest easy Motel is a great place to base yourself for avisit to sydney and surronding areas.
The rooms are very basic but comfortable and the breakfast and meals are always cooked well and we loved the dining room feeling.

The Rest Easy Motel is in a ideal position on the Great Western Hwy, on our recent stay we were more than happy with all the motel had to offer, the room was clean and spacious and the meals were everything we'd hope for, we would not hesitate to stay here again in the future, From Donnie

The Rest Easy Motel 5 minutes by car or 15 minutes easy walk from the picturesque Wentworth Falls is not what it appears to be.

Other reviewers have been taken in by the first appearances of this initially somewhat cold comfort, The Shining-esque, hidden away despite being only a few metres from the highway, basic motel.

In fact what you get for your relatively few bucks are:

Clean, servicable rooms (albeit with very basic beds and sometimes poor TV reception and intermittent hot water).

Very friendly and helpful (albeit also very eccentric) service.

EXTREMELY inexpensive prices - cheaper than Bali for a 6 week night deal.

Excellent and again EXTREMELY inexpensive home style Italian cooking and great value wine.

Relaxingly quiet rooms (unless you are on the ground floor) despite being so close to the motorway.

Free fun nightly floorshow entertainment by the management.

You could pay up to several times as much for the same deal at other hotels.

Room Tip: Go for rooms higher up not on the ground floor. Make sure you ask specifically for one with good TV...

I called to book this accomodation the day before we were to arrive. I spoke to a lovely person over the phone who actually gave me a discount! So we only paid $110 for the night, which was worth it.
This is basic accomodation, however we were staying here as we were going to an engagment party and really just needed a bed before we had to leave early the next day.
It is conveniently located and did the job for us.
I wouldnt recommend staying here for a "holiday" rather necessary accomodation needs.

This Motel is not worth the $170 we were charged for bed & continental breakfast.

On arrival the whole building looks tired and in some places quite dilapidated, the initial look was not deceiving!

We had a room with a 'balcony' overlooking the highway and a absolutely disgraceful, filthy swimming pool area. The wall of the balcony is disintegrating and, in places, has detached from the body of the hotel. The room was clean enough but appeared not to have seen a decorator for a number of years. The shower room was no better with a broken shelf, a shower that flooded the floor and a door that would not lock. The door had been rehung to open into the bedroom but the old hinges still remain on the doorframe creating a hazard for the unwary.
On a positive note, the towels were clean and the water, hot.

The TV in the room did not respond to the remote control and was badly tuned with only one channel obtainable.

Public rooms were no better, tired, uncomfortable and unwelcoming.

The bar and 'restaurant' were not open on a Sarturday evening, a blessing in disguise in that it forced us out of the hotel to find a restaurant in nearby Katoomba.
Continental breakfast was limited but we were offered an upgrade to full breakfast for a further $5 which we declined . Breakfast was interrupted by a rather rude person doing a very poor imitation of Basil Faulty at his worst.
The reservation was done through 'Wotif', clearly they have not reviewed this hotel for some time

Room Tip: Find a different hotel.

We booked there because it had a Restaurant, but it did not open. next morning breakfast was 40 minutes late, we had to go. the phones in the rooms didn't work, we could not contact the emergency reception, Tiles were off the floor in the 40 year old bathroom. the heater was broken, the TV had one channel, secutiry was low with a near broken sliding door catch and no double lock on main door. Disaster!!
