Well maintained motel in a great location. Staff were very informative and provided excellent advice on local restaurants, activities and sights. Our room was exactly as described and at a very reasonable price.

From the start we got there to the finish, we received great service, happy smiles and complete relaxation. Had the best sleep, the shower was good, its close to 3 sisters and the breakfast was decent for the price. Thankyou to the Motel staff :)

The room was spacious and clean, the staff was very friendly and helpful, the price was more than affordable. There is free WiFi. We felt like at home. The location is great: literally a couple of minutes from the Three Sisters, 20' walk to the train station (or catch a bus running every 30'). The optional breakfast ($7) was more...

Great location as its only a 2 minute walk to the three Sisters and close to other walking tracks , but I have to say I was a little shocked by the state of our room as I had booked a " premier twin room " via booking.com , I knew the place was old and needed a refurb but...

I stayed here for 3 nights with my husband and two teenage children. The motel is in an excellent location, a 2 minute walk to the Echo Point lookout. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the local area. The room was spacious and comfortable. The guest laundry was handy.

Tucked in a quiet area of Katoomba, Echo Point Discovery Motel is very close to the 3 Sisters and we could walk about 10 minutes to the landmark after dark to check out the lights (not worth braving the cold winds imho). Motel looks a bit dated and could do with a bit of refurbishment but otherwise rooms were clean...

My partner and I recently made a weekend trip down to Katoomba. On arrival, we were greeted by Joseph at the reception desk who has been so helpful throughout our stay. The room was clean and tidy, and the location was perfect. Just a short walk to Three Sisters, a short drive to town and to Leura. Very quiet and...

It's a bit jaded, but beds are comfortable and hosts more than eager to help. Perfect location for day hikes and visiting the 3Sisters. Would go back again bust need to check season as no air conditioner in rooms.

We booked this motel for 5 days after visiting the area the previous month. It's got a fantastic location minutes away from the 3 Sisters. While the motel is a bit dated, all we were looking for was a clean and comfortable room which it provided. The maid staff could have provided replacement shampoo on a daily basis and not...
