Very warm welcome from the receptionist who checked us in and ensured our motorbikes were parked under cover as big storms had rolled in. The room was very plush and the bed and pillows are amazingly comfortable.

Lilianfels is a lovely hotel with traditional style. It has stunning views of the Jamison Valley and easy access to many of the top Blue Mountains sites. Also a great place to relax when the mist sets in, it has a lovely indoor pool and large lounge area with open fireplaces.

The place has a homey feeling. It looks nice inside and out. Feels like you're in a countryside. The rooms are more feminine but it's fine because everything in them feels cozy. The staff are wonderful and they have a wide variety of foods to eat. All in all, I enjoyed my stay here.
