The bed and pillows were very comfy. The brekky was a great way to start the day. Staff were very helpful to requests for assistance. Great location across the road from Katoomba RSL and pick up stop for Blue Mountains Explorer Bus. Live music was not loud and did not keep us awake when we were all in bed asleep by 8:30pm.
Fruit on the breakfast buffet.
Close to town centre and Katoomba RSL and coffee shops.
The pillows were not comfy
Breakfast was fine but a change of menu each day might have been nice. Great location, bus stop right outside and easy walking distance from town. Staff were very nice, very helpful and happy to help.
The carpet through out the hotel was very old and smelly, could use a clean or light a candle. The hotel was a bit tired and dark but the staff made up for that. Found it a bit awkward going upstairs and then down stairs again to access our room after the dining room was shut.
It is an older hotel, but that’s part of its charm! They have live music every Friday and Saturday night which was a nice surprise after I booked. Really good blues and folk type musicians. The proximity to town was great, and it’s across the road from the Katoomba RSL and a delightful little coffee shop.
The floors were creaky (again it’s an older style hotel) so you can hear every step from people in the room next door or walking down the hallway. Take ear plugs if you are a light sleeper! The breakfast whilst included is quite basic. I specifically emailed and asked for gluten free bread before I arrived and had to remind them again, they brought it out frozen. :(
The location is good - only a few minutes walk to the shops, but out of the crowd. Quiet. The rooms are basic but comfortable and clean. I was happy with the value for money. I'd stay again.
Nothing I didn't like
When you stay at Hotel Blue in Katoomba, you'll be in the mountains, within a 5-minute drive of Katoomba Scenic World and Three Sisters. Event facilities at this hotel consist of a conference center and a meeting room. Free self parking is available onsite.
