Kurrara is a fascinating wooden building roughly 120 years old and makes a great place to stay in the Blue Mountains if you love interesting buildings.

Very comfortable. Every effort made to make us welcome. Pretty room and lovely breakfast. Good value. A little bit out of the main town but on the way to Echo Point which was where we wanted to start walking.

This was our second trip to Kurrara and the renovations and redecoration looks great. Welcoming hosts, comfy lounge areas, and a good breakfast on the sunny closed in verandah makes for a great base to set off and explore the Blue Mountains.

Great spot with some wonderful rooms. We were in the magnolia suite, which was great. Comfy bed, huge spa, and even a private tea room. The suite was so nice we ended up spending most of the weekend lazing around
