Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I can honestly say that the Metropole was one of the best places I’ve ever stayed. Convenient, ultra clean, comfortable, cosy homely atmosphere, excellent breakfast and friendly helpful staff members. I will be recommending to friends and family as the perfect accommodation in Katoomba.

Although the place is clean it is very tired and badly in need of a lick…..or a bucket…..of paint. Lovely friendly staff and a substantial breakfast. First day it was all laid out as there was no chef and the food had obviously been sitting keeping warm for some time and was limited choice. Second day much better. Cooked to order. Our room was minute and no natural light coming in as it looked out onto the fire escape and rooms opposite. It was very noisy late at night with folk going up and down the metal staircase, again early in the mornings. The curtains were off the rail and didn’t meet in the middle and the sliding bathroom door didn’t close properly. Everything in the room was dark and old and in need of replacement BUT spotlessly clean. The other public rooms were interesting and the place holds some interesting history. On our return to the room after being out all day our room hadn’t been made up. I asked at reception if this could be done which the lady was more than willing to arrange to have done. Apparently it hadn’t been cleaned as they only have the one key to that room! Therefore no access!

Ate breakfast here twice as the kitchen at our motel was out of order. Buffet breakfast was lovely! Great variety and choice, tasty hot options and friendly staff who even offered to cook fresh food when some options were finished. Perfectly cooked bacon! Warm, quaint and cosy dining room. Highly recommend.

We've stayed in the Metropole a couple of times now. It's quirky and full of character so if that's what you like, this is the place for you. It's far more memorable and enjoyable than a bland anonymous mainstream hotel. The staff are a delight.

Our overall experience was wonderful. We were greeted by Jack and he was the nicest and kindest person we have met on our entire trip - he definitely helped make our stay very enjoyable! Shout out to Carol for her kindness on our way out as well! The location was right in the middle of everything, easy walking access to the train station, bus stops, restaurants, bars, and stores. The room had all your basic needs and was clean; especially for the cost. Highly recommend if you are traveling to the Blue Mountains and are on a budget. We would stay here again!

The Metropole is a good budget option if visiting the Blue Mountains. It has a bit of character and is reasonably priced. Rooms are small but adequate. Reasonable breakfast. It is centrally located in Katoomba, within easy walking distance of restaurants/bars.

The Metropole was conveniently located for everything we wanted to do on our trip to the mountains. Short walk to bars and restaurants and easy driving to nearby towns and walks. Easy and close parking and attentive staff had a positive impact on our stay. The hotel itself had historic charm relevant to the location.

We had buffet breakfast here as we were staying at Echo Point Discovery Motel (sister property). We arrived too late for breakfast on the Saturday, but our booking was easily moved to Sunday instead. The dining room is currently decorated for Christmas in July and is beautiful! The fireplace pumped out the heat. Great selection of hot food: sausages, bacon, baked beans, cheesy tomato, mushrooms, scrambled and poached eggs and hash browns. There’s also continental options. Friendly staff.
