Lilianfels was excellent from the get go. Great location, great staff, great room and great food. We like to get out of the city on little getaways to relax and this was perfect. The only problem we had is we didn't stay long enough.
Perfect for the solo traveler...
I arrived late late evening, exhausted. The night crew took care of me to get me into my room with little fuss ~ they are to be awarded for their kindness! This is all about location in this sea side town. Anything further would not have worked unless you fancy walking in the dark or taking a bus to get into the city center. And, I'm a avid walker.
The pool if you have a chance to utilize it is quite amazing with a sandy beach included right at the hotel. The breakfast was convenient as well. As for pricey, Australia is pricey unless you are on a shoe string budget. This extra few $$ was worth the effort to book this hotel. Overall, hotel was clean and friendly. They do need to work on getting WIFI into their rooms ~ only available in the very spacious lobby area.
My wife and I stayed at the Best West Alpine. It is about a ten dollar taxi ride from Katoomba station and across the road there is a bus stop that allows you to use the Hop on Hop Bus. There is a fee for this service.We stayed fir two nights and the unit was cleaned each day and the bed was made. In some motels if you stay more than one night, this does;t always happen. The front desk was very helpful, and there is restaurant right next door, with great food and a very friendly staff. Highly recommend Best Western Alpine Motel.
Used as a base to explore the blue mountains, close to katoomba town centre by car. Recently updated rooms very comfortable with air con or heating cleaned to a high standard with excellent house keeping daily. A lovely pool area outside great for relaxing after hard days exploring the area. Would defiantly stay again
Age of the hotel has been used to advantage with decorations, furniture and facilities from an earlier period. Some old jazz and blues music in the background, comfy old armchairs and sofas, a cosy fire, and a small pool table. Staff were very friendly, helpful, efficient and answered all our "tourist questions". Within easy walking distance of restaurants. Limited off road parking but on street parking was safe enough.
We arrived before check in but using the phone provided, the manager arrived and allowed us to check in to the room. It was very warm and comfortable and a complimentary breakfast supplied on the first morning. Staff gave good recommendations for dining and local attractions.
