I stayed in Katoomba overnight after driving through from Sydney. The spacious (& clearly recently renovated) room had a comfortable QS bed with electric blanket and crisp linen. A reverse cycle air-conditioner provided much needed warmth. There was a table & chairs, wall mounted flat screen TV with a little ledge beneath, two-seat sofa and bed side tables. There were plenty of power points available. To the end of the room, was a large mirrored wardrobe with hidden tea/coffee making facilities and additional blanket/pillows. The bathroom was small and pokey – disappointing given the rest of the room. I can’t remember what the water pressure/temperature or bath towels were like. I had full Next G internet & mobile phone reception. A short 2-minute drive into town will grant you access to restaurants, bars, shopping centres and ATMs. However, I could not find a fuel station!!
Room service is offered from a select menu, but I would recommend the walk (if too cold, short drive) to the local RSL. Aside from TVs, the pokies & cheap bar food and drinks, there is a great Chinese restaurant. There are plenty of attractions close by (see the motel’s website for more), but due to time restraints I only had time to do the Three Sisters bushwalk which I highly recommend – pack a heap of water, sturdy shoes & your camera.
