Pool and kids play zone were outdated. Bowling did not work, none of the kids coin operated rides work and actually swallowed our money. Stinky wet carpet in kids play area due to proximity of pool. Smelt like old socks. Staff were reasonably pleasant but not bending over backwards with hospitality. Can see that this resort was once a great one, but has not been kept up to date over the years.
This old girl has been around a very long time, opened in the 1880"s and she is everything that you could imagine a hotel built back then should be. The Grand Dining room, The Ball Room etc are simply stunning. If only the walls could talk, the stories she could tell would be amazing. If you like your history I would highly recommend The Carrington. The staff are very helpful and friendly and nothing is too much.
The one bedroom apartment offered the convenience and privacy we were after. Leura is a peaceful town, right in the mountains. A car is the best way to get around, with underground onsite parking at no additional cost, it's ideal. A very enjoyable stay.
Pocket Guide: Blue Mountains Katoomba - Leura Hotels
The small artistic town of Katoomba glows in its quirk, and is only a stone's throw from the famous Echo Point, which offers a stellar view of the mountainous horizon and the famous rock formation known as the Three Sisters. Affluent neighboring town Leura provides picturesque English-style gardens, which thrive during the Leura Garden Festival every October.
