Stayed here for one night only and initially wasn't sure as the outside is definitely a bit tired. Inside is cozy and quite different. Great to see live music at night and again at breakfast. Definitely go again.

We were splendidly surprised by our special experience at this classic hotel. It had such a great ambiance, the staff was incredibly accomodating and personable, there was always wonderful live music, a great buffet breakfast and clean, comfortable, cozy rooms. It made our stay in the beautiful blue mountains that much better!

We had a brilliant weekend at Hotel Blue hiding away from the miserable Katoomba weather. The live blues and jazz music added so much to the ambiance already set by the beautiful decor and friendly staff.

This is a place that has a lot of potential, it's very quaint but has many faults! On arrival we were met by a lovely young lady who was charming and helpful. We were taken to our room which was quite small. This is in itself not a problem as it was functional. There is a blues music theme going...
