Toilet and bathroom was a bit old but all tidy and clean. There was a concert on one of the nights we were there and we didn't hear...

Old building you can hear others in rooms around you. Shared bathrooms & no heater or aircon however electric blanket keeps you warm. Loud door with old decor throughout hotel. Free continental breakfast but had to fight for a seat as it was busy being the long weekend. This was the only room left in Katoomba I could find for...

The money they ask for it worth every cent 10 folds: Cosy and clean room, clean and tidy bathroom, unlimited fast & free wifi and breakfast included. Friendly staff at hands, with a smile. Walking distance (5-10 min) to Katoomba centre, 10-15min walking to Three Sisters etc. Can not ask for better. Easter's weather here is always cold and rainy...

It`s just a small room but it`s allright, a bit old but that is the same all over Katoomba I think. I had a good stay here, most of the day I was exploring the town and the Blue Mountains anyway so basically you only go back to the room at the end of the day. Good location, pretty close...
