I got a friendly welcome as I checked in for an overnight stay! The room was clean, and had everything you may need - kettle, cutlery, toaster, microwave, electric blanket, hairdryer. A very short drive down the road from the main street of Katoomba, easy to find, and quiet. Check out was quick and easy. Would stay again, thankyou!

Sky Rider Motor Inn was a pleasant stay for us. When we entered the room the lights and the heat were already on which was very welcoming being winter in the Blue Mountains. Staff were welcoming and helpful.

We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and enjoyed reading our family Blurb in the guest book. We figured as a family run business it was nice to give our guests an insight into our family, how we came to owning the motel and what we have done since arriving 20 years ago.
