Great location and nicely furnished rooms. Walking distance to the three sisters lookout and trails Arrived mid-afternoon and enjoyed some time at the indoor and outdoor pool with my kid. If you're driving in from Sydney, it's the ideal location for an overnight rest stop before exploring the rest of the Blue Mountains and beyond.

We stayed at Lilianfels for one night on 22 November 2016 for our short trip to see the Blue Mountains at Katoomba. Lilianfels was recommended to us by friends. It is a great hotel. It's in a wonderful spot near Echo Point, and is a first class establishment, with old-world charm but modern high standard service. Our room was very...

Fabulous views from the garden and great service from staff wanting to help. Darleys, the fine dining restaurant was closed when we visited so we ate one night in Echoes, the restaurant of the adjacent sister hotel , which was excellent, and for our second night from the bar menu in Lilianfels, also very good if less formal. Breakfasts excellent...

Hotel is OK, dated, and feels like a retirement home. Room was fine, large, great bathroom. Service is stuffy, location good for a walk to 3 sisters but longer to town. Overpriced and plain breakfast buffet only option offered in hotel. The Blue Mountains as a whole are spectacular, next time I would chose someplae with a little more personality.

First. The image on its website and in travel brochures (the lovely Victorian building) is a separate building, an expensive restaurant and not the hotel. The actual hotel is in another more modern building, entrance nearly 100 meters past this. Second. The room we had booked was a 'resort view room'. The view was of trees a few yards away....
