We spent a very comfortable night in this charming old place. The cozy sitting room with beautiful china cups, every imaginable type of tea and sideboard treats of cakes and biscuits was just what we needed at the end of a busy day, our room with its fragrant sheets and a small, but well-appointed en-suite provided an excellent night's sleep,...

Well kept guest house decorated in period style in a quiet central location. En suite area a bit small but I guess they were not there in 1902 when the house was built. There were few surfaces to put toiletries or places to hang clothes. The breakfast was perfectly adequate for us but for those who like a cooked breakfast...

Taking into consideration my opportunities to enjoy many facilities over the friendliness and the most efficient staff of Kurrawa Guest House and their enthusiasm to take that extra step for their patrons is highly commendable. My grandson who ha a tyre blowout left him filled with anxiety so Ken was obliging in allowing him to join us the the dining...

This place has a real Agatha Christie / Miss Marple feel to it. Very historic. Clean comfortable room and although the breakfast is classified as continental it goes a bit further than that. Quite a few international guests while we were there

Kurrara guest house is very good indoors , really nice bedrooms with nice public rooms , also breakfast is very good , continental but with boiled eggs if desired. A nice touch is tea and coffee available all day. I say indoors because the entry via sliding door from car park area is a mess and very untidy and needs...

Hi Mike, Your comments are noted and we are well aware that the sliding door entrance to our house, being the 'service entrance' i.e back of house provides storage for works in progress. We have a front door, and back door to our carpark which I am sure will not offend. The refurbishment of Kurrara has been to date a...

My partner and I had the privilege of staying at Kurrara.. what an absolute gem. We were in awe of the beautiful immaculate rooms, the decor and the warmth the guest house gave. Ian our host was friendly and accommodating, and breakfast was totally delicious. Highly recommended Kurrara to anyone wanting to stay in the mountains. Looking forward to returning.

Such a treat to find, we loved Kurrara House the minute we walked in. We parked our car for free right outside the back door entrance. We were welcome by a lovely young lady who showed us around the house and then to our cosy ensuite room upstairs. We were given lots of information on where to eat and lots...

Would highly recommend this B&B! The staff are very friendly and the guest house/gardens surrounding it are very well maintained and beautiful. The rooms have everything you need and the common areas where you have movies to borrow or watch, and space to relax and visit with others, are warm and welcoming. The continental breakfast in the morning has a...

We stayed here as it was a conveniently located between all the amazing sits in Katoomba. As we were using public transport and on a budget, it was easy to get to via walking. Though I would recommend leaving th suitcase at home and travelling light. Kurrara was easy to find and Iain and Evelyn were lovely hosts, very welcoming...
