This is a MUST STAY! We stayed for 1-night in the family suite and it was so comfy. I wish would could have stayed longer. we arrived a bit early and were greeted by Paul. Paul was still getting our suite ready and suggested we go down to the corner grab something to eat and come back and we would check us in; while leaving our bags. When we returned the suite was ready and our luggage was placed in the suite. The fridge and cabinet were already stocked with our breakfast selections. Fresh fruits, cereals, bread, OJ, water, coffee and tea. The suite looks like a picture perfect little cottage and was just so cozy. Paul was able to get us reservations at "PINS" for our Thanksgiving dinner; which, is literally across the street. BEST MEAL EVER and the price was shockingly lower than expected!!! A must experience! The Scotch Steak, Lamb Meatballs & Spaghetti and Kangaroo were just amazing.Whatever you decide to eat ask the for beer/wine recommendations and they will glad make suggestions. The following morning we had to check out and Jenny & Paul held our luggage so we could do a couple more hikes before catching our train and offered to drive us to the train station when we arrive back as the Blue Mountain Hopper was stopped for their lunch break. Although we were left alone and had limited interactions with Jenny & Paul the whole experience was so relaxing and well worth doing! Jenny & Paul are amazing people and we thank them for such a wonderful and relaxing stay!!! The only downside to this part of our trip was that we only stayed 1-night :( If possible stay at least 2-nights.
The Metropole Katoomba was very noisy and the TV did not work, other couples complained of the same problem, food was good, staff OK, however the placement of our room overlooking the railway was very, very noisy. As above
The vloseness to the railway,the rooms ,the food,which was excelleant and of course the red bus for convienience .
We had a long way to travel: In order to manage fatigue, we booked into the Metropol, to take an early train to the city conference we were going to. It was a very wet, with flood warnings: As you can imagine, we weren't sure if we'd make it by 1800 hours to book in: The staff on duty when I rang to indicate we may be late: were absolutely excellent, very helpful. They rang again at 1730 to check where we were up to: gave instructions as to where to find our keys should they not be there. No trouble. Thank you. Very handy to railway station, clean, warm, comfortable bed.
It was good value for the price and the location was great, nice ambience with the mountains and the 1930's decor The room I was in was close to the stairs and a lounge area and at night there were some older guests who relaxed there and it was hard trying to sleep but they did stop at around 9.30pm so wasnt that bad
