Perfect for a stay in Katoomba. Close to everything. Super friendly folks and staff. Barbecue and laundry on site. Nice pool. Clean and well stocked to do your own meals. Internet slow but other than that, really lovely.

Lovely staff who were very friendly and helpful. On a very hot Saturday the salt water pool was a god-send. It was clean and well maintained, as was the bbq area. The room was clean and well-presented. The bathroom had been newly renovated. The shower had excellent water pressure. The air conditioning made for a very pleasant sleep on an...

We stayed at the Skyrider Inn during our road trip through NSW. The room easily accomodated myself, my partner and our three young kids. The rooms are modern, air conditioned and the staff are lovely. The inn also has a pool and BBQ facilities and is only 5 minutes drive from Katoomba Street or 10 minutes from echo point.

Staff were incredibly friendly from the very beginning including offering us to a larger room as we had so much baggage and explaining the local area. Rooms were a good size, very clean and had everything you needed. There was a pool though we didn't use it. 10 minute walk into the main town of Katoomba and a very good...

We recently stayed at this hotel - a weekend visit during the Lady Luck Festival in Katoomba. This hotel is located just a little outside the main town centre - a decent walk into town. This hotel is an older establishment. The rooms are all located on ground level. You get to park your car in front of the door....

Excellent service, the staff here are great. The highlight was the nice little pool area with the undercover BBQ space. The rooms are your standard motor inn type with parking at the door & everything you need. The only negatives I found was the shower pressure is a bit weak & the motel is 1.2km from the town centre. It...

Booked in last minute whilst visiting the Blue mountains. Set outside of the village but only a 5 minute drive from the centre, so easy access to pubs and restaurants. We had a family room and it was very comfortable, clean and had everything you would expect. Value for money. The only negative was the wifi, which would only allow...

Thank you. Our wifi should allow up to 5 guests to log on per wifi code and additional codes are available from reception to ensure everyone gets connected. The internet speed in the mountains is poor and we hope to move across to the NBN soon.

As I had a car it was a good location. A bit too far to walk to town. Close to the highway but no noise could be heard. Air-conditioner in room - needed for summer. There is a lovely pool that is nicer than the picture on their advertising.

We are 1.2 km from town so approx. 20 min walk. We love our pool and BBQ area is a great space to relax after a hard day exploring the mountains.

Room was very basic and is fine for a stop over motel if just passing through Katoomba. Room and bathroom was clean and neat though which was good. Close to the Katoomba town and also Leura. Staff are friendly and the pool is nice to have in Summer on those hot days in the Mountains.
