The main street is in walking distance So Thankyou... More

The location was great, close to township with quirky shops and restraunts a gentle stroll to the three sisters. The room was clean but bland and sadly in need of update. Shower head held together with electrical tape, tap dripped constantly. The bed was a slab of granite but clean and warm. Staff very keen to help and please but... More

Just a note about the Clarendon - what a brilliant hotel with great service. The bedroom was immense- airy large and the bed was perhaps the best hotel bed Ive ever slept in - It was strong but soft...not sure what mattress type etc but it was fabulous. The only negative for me was the fried eggs for breakfast ...... More

Stayed only one night thankfully all the Staff were excellent. Standard of food excellent. What let the hotel down was the accommodation. It would have been fine for a person who was 5ft and a size 0 but for anyone taller and a larger size not comfortable. I paid £125.00 for the night. The was just okay but unfortunately not... More

We stayed at the Clarendon guest house during the school holidays for one night while my husband had to come up to Katoomba for work. This was the only place left in the area that had a large enough room to cater for us and our 3 children. I had read the reviews and it was what it said, a... More

My friend and I stayed in a budget room (1 bed, shared bathroom). Very cheap only cost $150 for 2 nights. Room was small but clean. Breakfast was a basic continental style. Very central location, right next to main street and a short walk to echo point and scenic world (great if you have no car!) Friendly staff.

We walked into the lounge area with a fire going which was welcoming. We stayed in a motel room upstairs which was clean and warm thankfully as it was mid winter and zero degrees that night. The overall state of the place though is crying out for a good clean up and makeover, building materials laying around, weeds in pots,... More

We stayed at the motel side and were able to park (foc) right outside our room, even though the hotel was fully occupied, it being the Winter magic Festival. The room was spacious enough- note, however, that we had to book a 3 bed room, as it was the only room left. It was warm enough, and the linens and... More

Arrived at Lodge and checked in to cold bedrooms. Our room had a small oil heater which was insufficient for the size room. The other bedroom had a split system that was either off or on at 28 degrees. The beds had electric blankets. The beds had a mish mash of blankets and duvets and the mattresses were extremely hard.... More
