Old fashioned charm,. Unique and special.”

Close to the railway station, making it an ideal place for ease of arrival, departure, luggage drop-off. The building, like so many in Katoomba, is unique, and the internal furnishings are antique and interesting. Big games rooms that used to be bars (the lean on bar is an Australian classic), and shared lounges add to the comfort, and the room we stayed in was comfortable, with a decent en-suite. Excellent breakfast and helpful, friendly staff. And on the bus route, plus an easy enough walk to Echo Point, Scenic World. And the Three Sisters, if you’re reasonably fit.

Charming guesthouse in lovely 19th Century building”

The room was clean, cozy and comfortable. Having worked on the railroad myself for years, I enjoyed hearing the faint (not noisy) sound of the trains passing through the station across the street periodically throughout the night, but some people might find it annoying.

Great location”

Stay for 2 night with a toddler in family room. The family room is location at the corner which is good in case of young child disturbing others. The room is cosy and the bed is comfortable with electric blanket. The building is history and the decoration is quite interesting. Just that the floor is of carpet overlay wooden flooring so got cracking sound every time you walk around in the room. Breakfast is simple but good value for $15 continental buffet with menu shown in the room. About less than 5 mins walk from Katoomba station and bus stop nearby to bring you around blue mountain. Simple amenities with just soap and shampoo.
