Time Out says
Spend your Blue Mountains trip at this recently restored, historic hotel
For more than 130 years, this elegant heritage-listed hotel has been a landmark in Katoomba. The impressive estate has an air of opulence you can only find in venues that have endured three centuries of style. You’re sure to be impressed by the grand dining room, Art Deco features stained glass facade, on-site cellar and deli, stables and old world charm. This old girl also has many a billiard room and lounge where you can socialise with fellow travellers before retiring to your room or suite, as well as two bars for holiday tipples. Wherever you find yourself, grab a window seat for some spectacular views from the building’s elevated position.
