Reviewed 13 July 2015

This is one of those motels that is a pleasure to visit. We arrived on a very cold night to a friendly welcome at reception and an already toasty, pre-warmed room!. The rooms are spotless and nothing is too much trouble for the hosts. We had a family room which was nicely renovated. The beds were comfortable and the location was walking distance to the Three Sisters. The bathroom is older style but very clean and functional.

Arrived here with family on a recent cold evening to a warm welcome, both from owner and the fact that he already had the heater going in the room. Very considerate. Family room was large enough, clean and well appointed. Located only a few minutes walk from Echo Point. We only stayed one night but we felt it was good value and would definitely return. A real find and recommended if you are in the area.

Arrived in the cold pissing down rain to this gem. Had a giggle with the man at the desk who reminded me of my grandad. Gave us great local pointers and map and had already turned on our heat pump!!! Sweetie!!! Room was so warm and welcoming. I think for the price we paid it was worth it. Shower had a great rain head which was ideal after a chilly day out. Its very close to the 3sisters and info centre. About 15min walk to town. Very nice and clean.

What a fantastic find. Not only is this the cleanest, best presented motel we have stayed at, but the proprietor was by far the most friendly and accommodating business operator. In addition to a very warm welcome and tips on beating the tourist buses to some of the best local attractions, they had also turned on the heater in our room prior tonarrival ( a small detail, but greatly appreciated in winter in the Blue Mountains). The family room was well furnished and had ample space and the location of the motel itself is ideally positioned within walking distance to Echo Point, saving you the cost of parking.

My husband, daughter and I stayed two nights in this motel. The position is perfect, just a walk down to Echo Point to get the best view of the Three Sisters, a chocolate maker across the road and a walk in the other dircection for dinner. Management are so nice and helpful the room was very comfortable and warm and the beds were great! The service of having my washing done was very nice, coming back to my washing all done and folded on the bed was lovely. The recommendation for dinner was perfect and advice on parking etc in town. Would highly recommend this venue.

Room Tip: We were in room 2
