I really liked this place. It was really spotlessly clean , comfy and spacious. The reception man was very friendly. Very handy for the 3 sisters and the town. Old fashioned room and decor but maintained well and actually gives the motel a lovely feel if you take it for what it is. I would love to return and highly...

The motel is right near Echo Point in Katoomba. The staff is very nice and friendly and helpful with advise to where things are when you arrive. A short drive to the Katoomba shopping centre and not far from the cable car and other sites.

We booked two nights accommodation in their family room. It has a double bed, a single bed and a double decker bed. The beds were very comfortable and the room was quite spacious. The only inconvenience was that the toilet and bathroom were not separated. Across the street is a Chocolate shop and you can have your craving fix here....

We stayed here last year and had no hesitation coming back. Great location just a short walk to eco point to see the 3 sisters and information centre. Short drive to scenic world. The room was a good size and had a spa bath. Room 30 parking outside the room. The owner was friendly and helpful.

This motel is old and outdated. There cannot have been much refurbishment here for the last 10 years, and it doesn't look clean. The owners shows us some places on a map. He acts in a very unhelpful and unfriendly way. AUD 180 a night at a place like this feels like robbery even at Katoomba. The good thing: perfect...
