Very professionally operated / Managers' attention to guest comfort was obvious / Presentation of unit was impeccable / Given that it is an older style property, we were subject to unnecessary noise from guests above - this was immediately seen toby the staff !!

For an older style motel our queen room was very spacious, very clean, and very well appointed. Bathroom was roomy and spotless. Steve, at reception, was friendly and helpful re local attractions. Motel is close to Echo Point and not far from the main hub of Katoomba. Loved the chocolate shop/cafe across the road. I had no issues with our stay and would stay here again.

Thank you for your Review. We have Replaced the Mattress to avoid a similar situation in the future. A Regular Inspection of all our Mattresses and Bedding will be made on a Regular Basis, so that all our Guests enjoy a good night's sleep. Please accept our sincerest apologies for this.

Host was extremely courteous and couldn’t do enough for us. Room was large, clean and host had even put air con on for our arrival. No smoking allowed anywhere near rooms which was a real plus for us. Easy walk to Echo Point - another tick with paid parking everywhere and only a 3 minute drive into Katoomba shops. Chocolatier right across road. What more could you want?? We will definitely be returning!
