Great basic place to stay, very clean and close proximity to town. They might want to think about upgrading the exhaust fans in the bathrooms so you can use the light independently so you don’t disturb other guests late at night.

Lovely place, we had booked the family unit, as it suited our needs as a married couple with cousin, so 3 adults... it was a cold night and we arrived about 6:30, the lights were on and the room had been warmed up for us, even the electric blankets !!! Wonderful service, everything so clean and neat. The bathroom was new and obviously recently renovated, beautiful big shower.

Our two room unit was small, but clean. The motel is easily accessible of the highway and is a short drive into Katoomba's main street.

A traditional family motel where you park your car outside your room. Traditional friendly service and simple hot breakfasts. Great wifi. Quite and peaceful. Outskirts location (5 min drive) turned out to be a boon during the 2021 Easter gridlock as we could access the town centre via the Gully backroad rather than queue at those roundabouts near the station.

We had three nights and the facilicty is pleasant. I liked that we could get breakfast in the premises. The owners are very friendly and very helpful, wanting the guests to be comfortable. The only think I'd may be suggest is have the rooms cleaned at least every 2 days as four is a long time.

Thank you for your review, we will be reinstating the daily servicing of rooms at the end of the month. Every 4 days was for linen changes and this will continue. The daily service will be an opt-in or out service, depending on their preference. We hope to see you again soon.
