A sad version of a past majestic era.
The hotel is close to many amenities in Katoomba CBD. The receptionist s were friendly and informative. The hotel is a little outdated. The main entrance needs a little decorative input to enhance the once magnificent old building. A vacuum cleaner and cleaning bottles and a cloth were left in the corridor outside our bedroom and it remained there till the morning. The room we stayed at was very small with a bathroom. The bathroom was very small and had a very old sliding door. However, the bed was king size and comfortable. The breakfast area looked also outdated and old. I guess for the price we paid for one night it was ok. It would make a beautiful stay with a bit of a facelift.
