TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Blue Katoomba
A very nice 1920's hotel within walking distance of train station, shopping and blue mountains views and falls. Super nice people who run the hotel. The just took over the place so some restoration is ongoing. Rooms are clean but could use some attention at the ceiling :)
Don't forget to get some cappuccino at the cafe downstairs and admire the pictures on the wall.

After we had completed our meeting, we decided to drive a little bit further to show our friend the newly refurbed Hydro Majestic from the outside.
... for our plans for sight-seeing. We parked and then headed over to the overlook. I can imagine that the overlook would have been gorgeous, but on this day, it was nothing but fog. We looked out over the expanse, and it was like looking into a cloud. It was impossible to tell what we were looking at, or how far it went. The only thing we could hear was a faint sound of water in the distance. Slightly bummed, we decided to head down some of the trails to see if the view ...
... the kind of residents who are a little possessive about the place. Also the sites were astroturf, not really bush camping!
I quickly jumped on booking.com and found a room in a hotel - the Caledonian.
A old, but spotlessly clean room upstairs with soaring ceilings and a comfy bed. And probably the biggest television I had seen all trip! There was a basin, kettle, etc but i had to wander down the hall to the shared bathroom, not a problem as I didn't see another ...
