The most enchanting thing about Wrexham House is the owner, Kay Philip who will go out of her way to make you feel welcome. If you are looking for a low cost stay at Katoomba then you can do no better than Wrexham House.

This is not an hotel without character and minimalistic rooms with abstract prints on the walls. Wrexham House is first and foremost Kay's home with all the accoutrement's of family living adding to the charm. One cannot fault the cleanliness, If you are staying for a while and gardening is your thing then all help is welcomed as the garden is large and has an old world charm, if you fancy a game of tennis on Kay's tennis court, then racquet's and balls will be provided. The 18 hole golf course is minutes away and Kay has a set of clubs for you to borrow. We had an excellent lunch at the golf club.

In fact we did not cook at all in the well provided kitchen we ate our breakfast at The Common Ground Cafe at 214 Katoomba Street, great breakfast and good value. Kay reccommended us to the Rooster French Restaurant at 48 Merriwa St, for our evening meals and this was a great find.

The 50 metre Katoomba pool is a short walk, the town with very many eateries about half a mile away and http://www.scenicworld.com.au/ again is within walking distance.

For my money I wouldn't bother to look anywhere else - this is the place for a happy stay at Katoomba.

The website made this place seem ideal for my son and his partner to entertain
visiting parents from UK. Lush Gardens, tennis court, quiet area etc.
The Gardener had not called for a couple of months, the tennis court was
overgrown and unusable and the furnishings looked as if someone had died in
them. The arm chairs had doyleys covering grease patches on the arms and
headrest. There was no dining room as such and meals had to be eaten at a
kitchen table in a kitchen which was just an enclosed verandah. None of the
cutlery or crockery matched and seem to have been collected from garage sales,
or found in junk shops.
The fridge was unusable because the door had been left open and the whole thing
had iced up.
The owner called in for one night (to collect the cash)and offered us the use of
her fridge saying "I don't go down there much".
Heating was confined to an ancient gas fire in the sitting room, with a DANGER
warning attached. Nobody felt it safe to use the electric blankets!
The property was described as a former guest house and there was a lounge with a
bar but the whole place was stuffed with family left-overs (Do not use this
chair it costs a lot to repair it!) such as fishing gear, sports equipment,
rails of clothes making it unusable.
