There are numerous good things to say about this property and one huge negative that drags the overall rating down. A motel does not have to be of resort quality, it just has to provide the basics: a comfortable bed, reasonable environmental control, a clean room and a good shower. Sky Rider also adds a barbecue for use of guests...

Thank you for your positive comments and for bringing the issue with the shower to our attention, we installed a new hot water system in at the motel and we have had a few teething problems with the consistency of hot water, we have now made some adjustment and this should have solved the problem. We are looking to install...

If you are looking for clean, comfortable accommodation on the edge of the Blue Mountains in New South Wales, Australia then this is the place for you. The cabins/room/chalets - I'm not sure what you'd call them - have all the basics you need plus a few extras. The hospitality tray was well stocked with tea and coffee as well...

We stayed for one night on New Year's Eve. The owners are very friendly and helpful and the room was clean with a renovated bathroom. Breakfast is available for a reasonable costs. Great location if you want to visit the town centre, The 3 Sisters etc. Overall a good little motel to spend the night.

What a great staff! Also nice rooms. A bit of a walk from the town centre though but walking is good for you or 10 dollars in a taxi if you prefer. Very helpful people! Nice pool area but didn't use it. Thank you!

Lovely helpful staff, brilliant pool bbq area and good location. Room was good, remodelled bathroom. Not the kind of room you would hang out in all day but great to come home to after a day exploring.

Most lovely friendly helpful staff, after turning up last minute she accomodated our family of 5. The rooms was very clean, nice linen. Pool, laundry facilities and breakfast if we needed it. But to top it all off, we had biscuits in the fridge that were Nut Free. Our baby is severly allergic to nuts, so his was indeed meant...

The lady on the front desk was very friendly and helpful. Location of motel is good for access to Katoomba CBD and to tourist sites such as Echo Point and Scenic World. Motel room was clean and appeared to have been renovated within past few years. We were simply after a room where we could stay for two nights while...

Very friendly and helpful owners. Motel style property. It's not modern but it's not old fashioned either. Has had some recent updating in the bathroom area. Pool and BBQ area very nice. WiFi absolutely terrible. The owners did their best to try and fix it for us but it was very up and down. If wifi is important to you...

We stayed here for a night, the motel is in a great location and you can walk into town in just 5 minutes. The owner checked us in, he was exceptionally nice and friendly and really helped with our every random need. In reception there's a large range of DVD'S and books which you can borrow which was lovely. Our...

I booked the family unit and I thought that was a pretty good decision I made over the 5 bedder although both rooms had 5 beds. There was more space to move around for luggage. It was also nice for kids to have their own room to chill in. It was a nice touch of the room to have plates,...
