This property is very, very tired and badly in need of a total renovation. The staff are very friendly and helpful but this cannot compensate for the very poor condition of the property.

So much history in this beautiful hotel. Rooms were well appointed and bathroom towels were very plush. Lots of free room inclusions including tea/coffee/water. Grounds were glorious. So many lovely lounge areas to sit and relax. Not overly impressed with evening dining room menu, limited choice and quite expensive - but the Devonshire tea during the day was the best I’ve ever come across. Continental breakfast was included in the room price and was plentiful. Wouldn’t hesitate to visit again.

there is a great ambience to the Carrington. We had lovely views from a Spa room, over the town towards the valleys to the south. So many rooms to sit quietly away from crowds. There isn't air conditioning in those rooms, so they may be a little warm on the rare very hot summer blue mountains days; the little fan may no be enough. We experienced a wet and cool summer day that was more like late autumn. The food is great in any of the options. The front garden and sun rooms make you feel miles from the town that is only 50 metres away to a good variety of restaurants.

Grand style and very central location. The grounds are such that, while you are in the center of Katoomba, you feel quite secluded. The age and style of the property presents a very "regal" feel and the nooks and crannies around the place make for some enjoyable investigation.

Very old world charm. Were accommodating in changing our room, although one lady on reception was not overly friendly.
