This accommodation was perfect for our mini break. Room was really clean, bed comfortable, and air conditioning kept room cosy on the cold nights. Breakfast was great with perfect poached eggs and log- fire gave a nice feel. We will definitely stay here next time...More

A very well run, friendly and clean motel. The owners are helpful, surroundings are pleasant and the rooms are clean and well presented. Breakfast was excellent. A few minutes from Katoomba town centre. I highly recommend this motel. Will definitely stay there again!

Nope, we were just there. Heater in the bedroom only, bathroom was pretty cold. They give you two bath mats to help with the cold floor

Not from what we saw. We were there on the October long weekend, and although it seemed like they were fully booked (by the amount of cars) if, we had wanted to BBQ, we would have had no problem at all. The pool was empty... More
