The Carrington Hotel
Ranked #2 of 15 Hotels in Katoomba
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 April 2017

What a step back in history from the grand dinning room with its totally original antique clock, great atmosphere, food and service to the billiard room complete with full sized billiard table every wall contains some form of historic picture, the sitting room with log fire has to be one of the most comfortable places in Katoomba with a cocktail or glass of wine,

The Carrington hotel brings you back a hundred years or so with its old furniture and wood panels. The colors, flowers and decorations are unique. Our room was on the second floor and although the hotel has a lift, there were smaller stairs to handle that can be difficult for disabled and not so strong persons. The breakfast was great and served in a very nice dining room. We also enjoyed the bar area. The hotel is in the middle of Katoomba with easy access to restaurants and shops.

It's a beautiful old fashioned hotel and our room was very comfortable with a large walk in shower, mini-bar, and air conditioning.
I enjoyed the supper and breakfast, and the staff were very polite and helpful

We stayed as a walking group before and after our 3 day trek. Everything about this hotel screams yesteryear. The furnishings, the creaky floor boards and winding staircases, the funky lift (amazingly difficult to open the old doors). However, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast yummy. I recommend a spa room especially after trekking for 3 days. The room was large and spa fabulous. We ended off with drinks in front of the roaring fire on a chilly night. I forget to mention the views - magnificent.

Room Tip: Book the spa room.

Reliable as ever ... and getting better.
Nice people to welcome you after a short walk from the train and to assist you with every query you may have.
Immediate immersion in comfortable, warm history as you walk to heritage elevator or stairs.
Large, clean room with high t.count cotton sheets, big towels, large shower rose and quality fittings.
King size, comfy bed. Pillows could be bigger.
Negative is the absence of a stocked fridge. A welcoming wine is a nice sight at the end of a journey.
Breaky and dining room is nice ... would work on the team just relaxing a little though.
Always a nice stay.
