Great Weekend Getaway

Room was spacious and clean, good size bathroom. This is a well maintained guesthouse, staff are very courteous and helpful. Will stay there again. Very central to everything you need.

Basic overnight stay

Simply put this basic hotel offers travellers an opportunity to stay in a budget, 'no frills' room with bed, ensuite, TV, heating and small desk. Big plus was the rooms/hotel is very quiet. Hotel location is its biggest asset an easy walk to local restaurants in the main street of Katoomba the railway station is directly across the road.

Enjoyable and great location. Would go back as value for money.

With a group of Hash House Harriers enjoying the weekend. The breakfast was adequate but not that flash. Better value around the corner.

Golfing trip

We had an enjoyable stay at The Metropole, Katoomba, although the first night we were in the family room at the front of the hotel. This was very noisy as it's opposite the train station. The next day we were able to move rooms after chatting with the helpful receptionist and had a much more enjoyable sleep.

Nice clean room. Very friendly staff. Great meal. Only gripe - fridge needed defrosting - would freeze our icepack to keep our lunch cold. Definitely book again next time we are working in the are.

Terrible staff

Staff was very rude, the reception and breakfast hours are way too short. Unless you are coming to katoomba early and leaving late, don't bother with this hotel! Nothing was open when I got to katoomba and I got chastised for not finding the key that was left for me with shoddy directions. Since I got in after 6pm, when reception closes, I was unable to use any of the amenities offered with the room, like wifi, food, laundry, etc. I also left at 8am before reception as well as breakfast opens, 8:30am, so I didn't even get the breakfast that was supposed to be included. If you need to be up and about early, realize you won't get breakfast!

The Metropole

A nice enough guesthouse situated in the centre of Katoomba. Minimal parking and arriving on a Friday night like we did poses logistical challenges. Don't bother having breakfast here. $9 for cold continental and $15 for a hot breakfast of bacon, baked beans, toast, tomata, egg and a slice of watermelon. Far better off ducking around to one of the many cafes in Katoomba. Customer service was fair and needs work. Its a pleasant enough stay but probably not worth the $200 for our two nights.
