What a find in Katoomba!! Within walking distance to the 3 Sisters this B&B is beautiful as well a perfectly placed. Tastefully decorated, immaculately clean, cosy and oozing with mountain charm!! We stayed in the Amaroo room and we highly recommend it!! Such thoughtful touches from the owners made it even more special. Cannot recommend this place enough!!!

We were greeted by such a friendly lady (and her adorable puppy) and even though we arrived a little early she got our room ready straight away. Was a lovely room, made more cozy by the fireplace, lounge and spa bath. Didn’t expect to have some amazing extras like fresh milk & juice, cookies, chocolates and even some brandy. Can’t wait to stay again, was a lovely stay!

We stayed in a spa suite for four nights and had a wonderful experience. Our suite had everything you could need and came with lots of thoughtful extras such as afternoon cakes, evening port and even bath salts for the spa bath. We were offered a choice of delicious breakfasts, which were served in our lounge - a very nice touch. The location is perfect - an easy stroll to town as well as Echo Point, Scenic World and lots of hiking trails. Paul and Jenny were wonderful hosts, and obviously take pride in their offering. Outstanding value. We look forward to staying here again on our next trip to the mountains. Andy & David

Hubby and I enjoyed one night of peace and solitude wrapped up in the foggy blanket of Katoomba at Shelton Lea. We decidedly glad we chose to stay here, as on our second day (and sadly our departure day) the fog lifted and the sun shone. Perfect stay at Shelton Lea. Warm welcome from Jenny. Cosy. Comfy bed and pillows. Gorgeous hot shower. Peaceful. Solitude. Breakfast was fabulous. Great location. Close to Echo Point, walkable if needed. We have stayed at many bed & breakfasts and very much enjoyed our stay here. Could not fault.

I highly recommend this B&B. The best thing about it is the friendly hospitality of Paul and Jenny who go out of their way to ensure you're having a good stay including a very tasty home cooked breakfast. The room was very nicely equiped and super clean. The location is also very good around the corner from The Three Sisters and close to Katoomba shops.
