If you're just looking to put a roof over your head for a few days while you explore the Blue Mountains, then La Maison should be on your short list - especially if you can pick up one of their breakfast + accommodation packages.
We stayed two nights at La Maison while we explored the Blue Mountains after picking up the 2 night breakfast + wine package. As a base for exploring the mountains area, being located in Katoomba is quite convenient. The hotel itself is a five minute drive from the main street of Katoomba, and walking distance from Echo Point.
As others have noted, this is an older establishment and does appear to be run on a lean budget. The rooms are neat and clean, but we encountered a number of small things which meant we could only give La Maison an average rating. The little imperfections we encoutered included:
- holes in the fly-screen meant we couldn't leave the window open.
- one of the in room heaters had a broken wheel - which we had to chock up in order to use.
- the other, wall mounted heater was behind the curtains. We didn't feel it would be safe to use this heater while the curtains were closed, hence we couldn't use it at night.
- the "bar" is supposedly open from 6pm-8pm, but we were told we needed to contact the duty manager to have it unlocked if we wanted a drink.
On the plus side, the hotel was accommodating of putting an extra bed in the room for our son, and we encountered no issues in terms of check-in / check-out or payment - despite using voucher we had purchased on a group buying site.
Overall, if you are looking for an affordable place to sleep and an easy breakfast option, than La Maison is worth a look, but if you're looking for luxury or a romantic treat, there may be better options.
