Stay was far too brief and will definitely be back and stay longer next time. Very homely with lots of charm & character as well as super friendly staff.

Kurrara is a beautiful 1902 house, furnished in the style of the period and settled in a well maintained mountains garden. The rooms are pleasant, the dining room charming and lounge, which is pictured, is a cosy place to read, chat or watch television. It is an easy walk to Echo Point, with its views of the Three Sisters and the valley, and the walks which start there and in the opposite direction to Katoomba village, with its range of places to browse and dine. Last of my likes, but by no means least, the staff at Kurrara were pleasant and very helpful with our special requirements. They made contributed hugely to a memorable few days. We have racked our brains and can think of nothing that marred our stay at Kurrara, except the weather. We intend to stay there again and hope for sunshine.

Wonderful place to stay. We found the room to be exceptional and breakfast was great. Location was close to everything. We are recommending this to our friends. If you like history, this is another reason to book and enjoy

Great place to stay. Very warm and cosy with a great breakfast. Rooms and beds were very good too. Only issue was that the hot/cold water in shower was all over the place at times - but only a minor issue. Would definitely stay again and would recommend!!!

Ian checked us in and he was very friendly and helpful. Our room was full of little extras you don’t normally get. And we loved the beautiful tea / breakfast room. They have such a large supply of tea and good coffee and just loved the afternoon cakes put out. Would definitely stay again!

The owner was a bit gruff on the first night. It was off putting.

We are sorry to here that your reception was not more welcoming, it may have been due to a late arrival. I'm glad that the rest of your stay was more in keeping with our usual 'bon homie' Best regards Kurrara
