There is a bewildering variety of accommodation choices of all types and prices in the Blue Mountains. We've visited the area on countless occasions over >70 years, mostly day trips, and this time wanted just a convenient 'base' to visit friends and to eat at good restaurants on consecutive nights. This motel offers all-ground-floor, park-at-the door, clean-and-comfortable accommodation (including a good bed). The highway and the railway are close by, but that sort of noise doesn't worry us. A group booking of noisy older adolescents was more inconvenient, but not enough to warrant a visit to the manager, who on both our arrival and departure was friendly and efficient.

Thank you for your kind words and sorry you were bothered by other guests, it is fustrating when other guests do not respect our motel and the comfort of other guests staying. Hope to see you again.

We booked the motor inn as our accommodations for the Ukulele Festival. Its as we expected, its budget accommodations, but its convenient to walk into Katoomba from here. The room was clean, and the desk staff were friendly. But it is an older and basic property so as long as you have clear expectations you'll appreciate the property.

A great place to stay staff are so friendly and helpful



Had a great stay at the gorgeous Blue Mountains close to scenic world. The motel was clean and the cot was ready in the room for the bubs to have an afternoon nap as soon as we got there perfect.

The staff were so helpful gave us a map and write down all the best spots accessible with the pram that was helpful.

Breakfast was lovely and very reasonable 7.5 bucks for continental buffet or if you are like me and love your food, 15 bucks and you get a cooked breakfast too.

Room Tip: fantastic staff, food was great and close to scenic world big thumbs up from me.

The swimming pool was great. The BBQ baskets have all you need to cook a BBQ by the pool. Very impressed with the cleanliness of the room. Lovely staff. Delicious breakfast. Affordable and close to main shops.
