The place is like being in a time warp of thirty years ago and I think that was the last time they did any maintenance as well. We arrived late because we were at Bathurst and there was note on door at reception for our room which was good, but needed car lights on to see it as there was NO lights on anywhere as if they had closed down years ago. It said in welcome book pool was shut down and getting fixed up but I think that was printed in there about two years ago as water was black. Also only room in the world with no hairdryer and bible in top drawer. Room was for five people but only three cups ? So someone's going to go thirsty . Alarm clock built in to cabinet had most buttons missing so no adjusting off time or radio, no big deal as it was only out about five hours and flashing.
Hotel was excellent in a great position a little away from the town centre so nice and quiet but only two minutes drive to town centre, close enough to Katoomba and Scenic world and closer to Jenolan Caves than Katoomba. Hotel was very clean even if decor is quite dated the size of the rooms (stayed in two bedroom apartment) made the stay with my two kids very comfortable. The girl working at the check in desk seemed like i was interrupting her and she had bad day when i checked in which wasnt very welcoming. The Games room and the heated pool was awesome for the family. TV could have been a little bigger for such a large room however loved staying at the Redleaf and would definately go back every time. Jenolan Caves was awesome and cant wait to go back.
After staying in hotels for 50% of my life, I rate this hotel as the grearest experience of any hotel in the world. The drive from Sydney can be punctuated with stops at wonderful villages in the Blue Mountains. That drive culminates in the beauty of the Wolgan Valley.
The suites can only be descibed as superb. The food is well prepared and professionally served and the activities are interesting and varied.
I am now planning my next visit.

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
