We stayed for 2 nights and the 3 Explorers is an excellent location and offers large comfortable rooms. The owner gave us a great insight into what to see and visit in the area. Only 5 minutes walk to Echo point and 10 minutes into town. Good value, clean and comfortable.

Located just a short walk to Echo Point with views of the Three Sisters and the hills beyound, a view that you just do not tire of! There are plenty of Cliff walks to trek, but some of the steps are not for the faint hearted, especially the ones at Wentworth Falls (a short drive away) A visit to Jenolan...

We had a family room, which worked well for us – like many other places it can be a bit tight for a family of five, so be sure to use your time exploring the fantastic surroundings. The place is very close to the 3 sisters and the information centre. While in Katoomba be sure to walk the National pass...

For 3 years this has been our January home for 3-6 days & has always met expectations. This year we opted for the queen bed & spa situated on the ground floor. This room is like a private apartment, being situated behind the office, with access from the managers carport, via a lattice gate. It has a small outside sitting...

Perth, Australia
Reviewed 9 January 2015

Very impressed with many aspects of our stay. Invaluable advice from the owner about some tourist attractions we were planning to visit. We had the family room with bunks and the accommodation was perfect for sharing a room with kids as the room set up allowed us to watch TV after kids were asleep. Perfect, quiet location.

Very quiet town, quiet street. But near the three sisters and the science world. Small but comfort room. Clean, warm and suffcient for family vacation. A little far from town centre, where a Chinese restaurant located.
