My partner and I stayed two nights at Kurrara Guest House. We were blown away by the service and the facilities. It was an absolutely lovely place to stay. The decor was so true-to-form with turn-of-the-century features which was really lovely and refreshing. We had all the amenities we needed. The breakfasts were just lovely and perfect. Additionally there were...

We had a wonderful stay here for our anniversary. The rooms were beautifully presented. Kurrara house was close to everything with the 3 sisters and the cable cars just 5 mins away. The included breakfast was great. It was quite and peaceful with the staff friendly. Top marks!

The Tourist information office booked this for us on the day of our stay so we hadn't done any research prior to booking. We were highly delighted with the location, the standard of the room and the great choice at breakfast. If we ever pass this way again, we will book again!

This was something totally different which is what we were looking for - the new owners have done a wonderful job in restoring this guesthouse. We had port in the lounge before bed. We stayed in a Standard en suite room upstairs and then in the morning had the most wonderful breakfast on the porch.

This ticked all my boxes, historic, comfortable, affordable, welcoming. The continental breakfast was huge (included a boiled egg option), the afternoon was a lovely surprise, the antique furniture was amazing. Free wi-fi was a bonus, tv room full of dvds, and a short 10-15 min walk to a lookout, and walkmdown to Bridal Veill falls. Even the foggy misty mornings...

I stayed at Kurrara Guest house in May, on a work-related visit to the Blue Mountains requiring attendance at a dinner in Leura and an exhibition/workshops in Katoomba. I'd heard from colleagues that the guest house was located in a quiet position conveniently between my two locations, and for a quality B&B it rated well with online reviews. However, it...

Our family enjoyed the quiet and lovely place. The hosts looked after us very well and the conversations were great. They were helpful and kind to inform us about places and special occasions at Katoomba during our stay. The historic value of the guesthouse has been maintained while making the amenities up to date. Would love to go back for...

We spent a night here and recommend it very highly. The house is absolutely beautiful. The room was one of the smaller ones, but loaded with comfort and character. The management is friendly and welcoming. Little touches such as afternoon tea and a tray of port really make it feel a special treat. breakfast was absolutely delicious, and the lady...
