If you're coming here for "luxury" (I hate that word), don't bother. But if you want to stay in a dying breed of incredible hotels, this is fantastic. It's all comfortable enough, but it's the originality of the place that will blow you away. There has to literally be close to a million dollars worth of stained glass here, which...

Great one night stay with my aunt whilst I was over from the uk. My aunt lives in Sydney so she booked the hotel and we were very impressed. Perfect stay and great location. Staff very helpful and welcoming. Just one thing to say make sure you check your room bookings carefully. We nearly booked it with a shared bathroom...

We thought a pleasant lunch on the verandah of this old hotel would be a great way to start our long weekend in the mountains. Yes, the setting was lovely, but having to go inside to the bar to order a meal is not what one expects from this fine old establishment. We waited about 1/2 an hour and then...

While the Carrington is a very old hotel (around 1880) it has been modernised and refurbished. It still retains its old world charm as we would envisage. EVERY staff member was polite, helpful, courteous and cheerful. Nothing we asked for or inquired about was too much of a problem. They made our stay very pleasant and enjoyable. We travelled by...

This place is a history lesson of the mountains. Missing modern day features but who cares; the charm of the place & the hospitality of the staff more than make up for these shortcomings. As best as I can describe it, The Carrington is like your grandmother's cooking (assuming she was a good cook) - nothing exotic; nothing measured; full...

My hubby and I love this place. We travel to Katoomba for relaxation regularly and this is our first choice for accommodation (it does book out so book in advance). We stayed in a colonial room. Lovely room with a massive bay window with comfy cushions. The only problem was the air conditioner. We had it on all weekend and...
