Great value for money, Ideal Blue Mountains base
Excellent value for money for a short break in the Blue Mountains. Typical older motel-style property but well-renovated and very clean and comfortable. Decent-sized room, good beds, renovated bathroom, TV, fridge, kettle and microwave - everything you need. Onsite parking, pool, great wi-fi, breakfast available. Service was exceptional - friendly, helpful, knowledgable. Just outside Katoomba - 2 mins drive/15 mins walk - easy access to everywhere. Great base to explore the area at a reasonable cost.
