We only stayed 1 night and got there at 11.00 pm so it really was just a sleep break stopover. The staff we good and had th heating turned on for us so it was warm and cosy when we arrived. The room is a standard motel and was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was good though they could put in a Nespresso machine. It is a good place for a stop over.

This is so far the best motel I have ever booked in Sydney. It's clean, quiet and comfy. The family room is big and equiped with everything we needed. I would definitely recommend this motel to all those who want to stay in Blue Mountain.

Nice, quiet, well located motel. My son and I stayed here for a couple of nights while exploring the region. The room was clean, comfortable and there was no noise at all from the road. Electric blankets were very welcome too! We’ll be back next time we are in the area :)
