This hotel fit us perfectly. It is absolutely beautiful and was close to everything we wanted to see in the Blue Mountains. Our room was a little small but is is a quaint hotel with all the charm that you could expect. My wife and I enjoyed sitting in the area immediately in front of the hotel with a drink... More

A luxury escape deal was purchased for a 2 night stay. The hotel is maintained in its grandeur of yesteryear with comfortable rooms and large breakfast room with authentic decor, fireplaces and excellent service from a young and pleasant staff member named Josephine. The age of the building is reflected in the creaky floors however the ambience is certainly present... More

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights but would gladly stay longer if I had the time. Great king size bed with large bath. Quiet, friendly and good location. We added the breakfast to our stay. Plenty of good food in a lovely room with a fireplace. Front desk folks were great, too. Provided us with information and directions.

We stayed at this hotel while visiting the Blue Mountains. Excellent hotel in great location. Our deluxe was really lovely, immaculately clean and large with a great en-suite bathroom. Breakfast was extensive with great service. Definitely recommended.

This hotel is worth a stay with its positives outweighing the negatives. It is a lovely old hotel and the main areas have a good and friendly feeling. The friendly staff are definitely its greatest asset. All were very welcoming and happy people, and the chef brought our breakfast to the table which was a nice touch. The continental breakfast...
