We stayed there on Friday night and couldn't recommend it more highly. It's charming, in a beautiful location, very comfortable, right across the road from the national park - and it has wifi. All the hotel staff were lovely, and it has a great restaurant.

My husband and I are first time travellers to Australia and "spend a night in the Blue Mountains" was on our list of things to do. We loved this place. It was absolutely charming. Lots of character, much better than staying at a chain hotel. We stayed in the Van Gough Room, and had a very pleasant sleep. The electric... More

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The place is quite charming. We stayed in the Paris Suite which is on the top floor. It was quite spacious, with a nice sitting area and a small kitchenette. The bedroom had a quite large walk-in-robe attached to it. The views were spectacular. Overall I... More

The breakfast was included in the price and very... More

We were so pleasantly surprised to find this charming and authentic French restaurant while we were exploring the area. Violinist was very good and such a nice chap. The service was perfect and relaxed. The menu was traditional and very nice. The setting and atmosphere was fantastic. Highly recommend.

This is a quaint historic guesthouse with excellent views of the Jamison Valley and very close to the Echo Point Lookout. The rooms are comfortable and quiet. The Rooster Restaurant is amazing with the best French meals I have ever had, and better than the upmarket Melbourne and Sydney French restaurants and a lot less expensive. The staff are friendly...
