Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The location was amazing. The view spectacular, the bird life fantastic! It was beautiful to see the difference of the view from morning to night and from one day to the next. Very close to the legendary 3 Sisters. Very relaxing break. Thank you very much. I will be back!

Property's Favourite Review
We've just enjoyed a wonderful stay at Dalia's Blue Mountain Retreat, in the Cloud 9 apartment. Firstly - those views!! Wowee. I dream of a kitchen with that view for the washing up. Plus a large deck with BBQ, table and lounge set for relaxing mornings, afternoons and evenings - under the sun or stars, with incredible views over the mountains. I've never fully appreciated the Blue Mountains like I could do with the view from Dalia's. Secondly, the comforts and facilities within the apartment - delightfully comfy beds (that master bed!!), bathroom, living room and kitchen, everything you could need for a stay. So clean and well kept. Thirdly, the beautiful Garden of Stars for a stroll down below. And fourth, the location - very short walk from Echo Point and the nearby walks/hikes and close enough to the cafes, restaurants and facilities of Katoomba. I will definitely be back, and will wholeheartedly recommend this place to anyone visiting the Blue Mountains or nearby. Thank you Dalia and Joss!

Magnificent! Dalia's retreat is beautifully warm, cozy and comfortable. It has the most incredible view of the Jamieson Valley, beautiful gardens to stroll in, and is a very short walk to the Three Sisters lookout. This is a stay you will not forget!

We stayed at Dalia‘s Mountain Retreat for one night while we were in Sydney for a few days. The Blue Mountains are a great escape from the city, but the stay at Dalia‘s place just got everything to a whole other level. The apartment was well equipped with anything you need, even to make a meal if you don’t want to go out for dinner. The terrace & garden are the absolute highlight of the place and offer a great view on the mountains (really NO other houses in the way). Location is about a 3min walk from echo point.

Another wonderful experience at Cloud 9. This is my family’s second time staying at this magical place and it won’t be the last! Views are breathtaking as is the garden. A must, if you are wanting a unique and peaceful getaway to the Blue Mountains. 100% would recommend! You won’t be disappointed!

Brilliant in every aspect. We spent the majority of our time outside with the first class view and was lucky enough to view a storm build over the valley (at head height) and perform a magical light display for us. I will not stay anywhere else when booking a place to stay in the blue mountains.

Dear Matt, Thank you for leaving your wonderful feedback of your 2 night stay in Sterling Manor. Loved the photos of the dramatic sky. The view from the diningroom is awesome and showcases the changing elements of nature in slow motion. The cloud formations have lately been so expressive together with the thermal currents that dance and waft across the Jamison Valley and mesmerising to behold from a comfy arm chair. It was a real pleasure to host you and your partner for your holiday all the way from Queensland. I certainly hope you loved your Mountain adventure and that we see you again next time. Warmest wishes for a Merry Christmas! Dalia Isles 🎄 Dalia's Blue Mountain Retreat

We loved our stay in this beautiful historic place with its spectacular views and garden. Garden of the stars - Studio was wonderfully equipped with everything needed for a refreshing and luxurious break, and set in a perfect location in Katoomba with great access to the 3 Sisters at Echo Point, cafes and shops. Such great hospitality, thank you Dalia. We will be back!

Everything about Dalia's retreat is amazing. From the views, to the beds, and the great communication I would highly recommend Dalia's retreat to anyone. We got married at the 3 sisters and Dalia was more than welcoming to allow us to hire out the whole retreat for family and friends, and it was the most perfect place I could imagine for the big day. Perfect place for photos and many memories. Thank you so much Dalia!
