Location and price is good. Staff very helpful and courteous. Basic but good breakfast. Overall tawdriness about the property as many once 'nice touches' are way past their use-by date for a refresh. But the showers and overall cleanliness was fine, so not complaining.

The property is 1920 ‘s in origin and very quaint . However I visited a few years ago and noticed how it has become quite run down . Needs new paint and carpet and bathroom renovation sympathetic to the architecture of the 20s ,like the Clarendon .. Very clean bedrooms but definitely s budget stay.

Great staff, old facilities. NOT 30 kms from Jenolan Caves as Wotif told us. 75 kms from Jenolan Caves, very inconvenient.

The room and hotel stank. The room was dirty and delapidated. Definitely not 3.5 stars, more like half star. We went somewhere else to stay for the night.

Came to Katoomba for a short 2 day stay, and to attend the Steam Train events in Mount Victoria. We chose the Clarendon Guest House for it's central location.

Convenience

Pros: convenience. A Decent basic breakfast with freshly cut fruit.
Cons: Up-date floor carpeting throughout.
Location: Good location. We used our car for travel to sightseeing locations.
For the price we paid it justified the convenience of being within walking distance to the main shopping centre and restaurants. The single beds were firm and room was small. We slept well both nights considering that we exhausted ourselves doing the sightseeing activities walking the tracks. The car parking facilities are limited and gutter scraping. best to park along the side street.
