      Charming Guest House”

      Friendly owner and staff, comfort, quiet location

      We were very pleased with our stay at Kurrara House. It's a short walk from the train station, about 10 minutes if you don't have too much luggage, and is very close to one of the stops of the hop-on hop-off scenic buses. We had wonderful chats with our host Iain. He gave us lots of local news as well as info about restaurants, sightseeing and transit. The room was very comfy and the breakfast in the morning set us up nicely for a day of walking. There is a large selection of quality movies on DVD that can be played on monitors in each individual room. We would definitely return to Kurrara House if we found ourselves in Katoomba again.

      Short walk to scenic bus stop, hop on hop off, home from home atmosphere in the house and daily home made croissant

      We walked from Katoomba station max 10 minutes and the house was easy to find. Our room which we chose before hand when booking was just as described. The bed was super comfortable and the bathroom large. Everything worked as it should, even the heating came on due to the cold weather which was a little too warm for us! Breakfast was great especially the home made warm croissants. The house is full of antiques as well as books and DVDs for guest use. We went to the Old Bank brasserie upstairs on their recommendation and thoroughly enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Definitely stay again here when we come back to Blue Mountains.

      Close to Three Sisters!”

      While the downtown area is hustle-bustle, Kurrara Guest House is just far enough out of downtown so that it is a peaceful reprieve, yet close enough to walk to many things. It is just a couple of blocks from the main entrance to Echo Point and the Three Sisters. The rooms are quaint and each has its own bathroom. The morning breakfast is delicious with fresh croissants, great coffee, fresh fruit and homemade granola. We loved it!

      It is an amazing experience staying here. The architecture of the building will definitely bring you back to old Australian feel. Snacks and drinks are available whole day. They also provide a vast choices of DVDs and books for us to choose. Each room is provided with a DVD player. Staffs are friendly and helpful. It's location is nearby to The Lost Bear hop-in, hop-up bus stop that will bring you around Blue Mountain. Highly recommended. Will surely be back to this guest house next visit.

      Friendly and helpful staff, beautiful garden, classic and comfortable hotel.

      We stayed for only one night, any more and it would probably be out of our budget range. But it is a beautiful, comfortable and well maintained hotel. The breakfast is only continental but it was delicious. It is located in between downtown katoomba and the look out of echo point. It is also close to the bus stop for the blue mountain sights. Complimentary port is also available and a really nice touch.

      1. hearty breakfast with Korean instant noodles for the asian palate! 2. clean and comfortable 3. hop on bus ticket available for sale at the hotel

      As above. However, Bell on the back door didn't work so I went around the house which happened to have scared one of the staff cleaning one of the rooms as the appearance was sudden. She invited me into the guest room that she was cleaning to get through to the main lobby. However the owner was quite crossed with me for scaring his staff and entering someone's guest room, saying that I should have used the front door or the bell at the back door, which he later realise is not working. The hostility is definitely uncalled for. There is also no bathroom for common use as we were unable to check in up arrival at 10am. We were asked to use the bathroom at a nearby coffee shop which we ended up using the one at list bear museum, where the lady staff was extremely friendly. Kurrara could have been much more friendly in the above aspects.

      Very cute heritage B&B with all the amenities you would expect from a modern hotel. Located a bit away from Katoomba town centre but it is close to a few points of interest such as the blue mountains chocolate shop. Included breakfast is vegetarian which offered a wide range of teas and jam. The dining room can be visited at anytime for tea, coffee, biscuits etc. There was also a good range of quality dvds available to borrow during our stay. The quaint bedroom was very charming but small so there wasn't much space to place our belongings. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.
