Great little family run hotel. I always stay here when I’m in Katoomba for work. Jamie and Kerrie are always very welcoming. The heater and lighted are popped on ready for my arrival. The rooms are just what I want: very clean, warm and with a lovely hot walk-in shower. It’s been tough for small businesses and the lockdown has been hard for the Blue Mountains, which is just one more reason why I’m keen to continue to stay at the Skyrider to support local businesses.

We stayed here while in town on business after trying 2 other places on previous occasions. The front desk staff were welcoming and lovely, the room had been prewarmed and was spotless. Having plates/cups ect in the room made eating in much easier space in the minibar fridge for leftovers. Very quiet at night time and parking at your door. We will stay here every time we are in town!

We only stayed 1 night and got there at 11.00 pm so it really was just a sleep break stopover. The staff we good and had th heating turned on for us so it was warm and cosy when we arrived. The room is a standard motel and was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was good though they could put in a Nespresso machine. It is a good place for a stop over.

We are so pleased you found our location convenient, we are close to the Great Western Highway but not affected by traffic noise. We are 1.2 km from the town centre so a few minutes drive or an easy 15-20 min walk. We hope to see you again soon.
