This is a quaint historic guesthouse with excellent views of the Jamison Valley and very close to the Echo Point Lookout. The rooms are comfortable and quiet. The Rooster Restaurant is amazing with the best French meals I have ever had, and better than the upmarket Melbourne and Sydney French restaurants and a lot less expensive. The staff are friendly...

We stayed for three nights in September. We booked the apartment in the 2nd floor as it had a little sitting room and kitchenette as well as a bathroom and bedroom. This is a lovely little French style guesthouse. The staff were all unfailingly friendly and polite. I received a prompt reply to an email regarding parking availability. There was...

A charming ,prettily decorated hotel with friendly staff. Dinner in "The Rooster " restaurant was delicious French cuisine . There was soothing background music provided by a harp player. A cooked breakfast which was included in the tariff was also also perfect. Freshly squeezed orange juice and Eggs Benedict and Eggs Florentine with freshly ground coffee made for a wonderful...

took a punt and stayed 4 nights. an old world delight of a building and toasty snug warm. breakfast was something to look forward to, as was dinner. staff are mainly french and utterly delightful, and they are clearly supportive of each other (always a good sign of in-house working culture). we felt like we'd been included as cherished housemates...

This was truly a night to remember. The service was impeccable. The food was superb. The attention to detail and the warm friendly atmosphere added up to a wonderful anniversary meal. Thank you to Leah our wonderful waitress and the generous owner who gifted us with some tiny spoons that I happened to admire. We will be back..... Soon.

My mum and I enjoyed a fantastic night out at the Rooster restaurant recently. The food was flavoursome and presented beautifully, the French champagne chilled & flowing and the complimentary bread was very moorish! Would definitely revisit this restaurant next time I'm in the Blue Mountains.

Their snails in garlic butter is to die for! Food is always fantastic at this place and the atmosphere is lovely in the retaurant. Visitong this restaurant is a highlight of every trip to the Blue Mountains. The staff were lovely but needed more experience to develop flare and finesse and round up the experience.

This place is just so lovely. Perfect mix of old and modern style; very cosy. It ended up being a really stormy weekend so we didn't get to see much of The Blue Mountains but we had a really fantastic stay regardless. The staff are easy going and friendly but also highly professional. The dinner was beautiful; top quality food...

I surprised my husband for his 40th birthday by taking him to Katoomba for the weekend & staying at Jamison house. It was amazing! I wasn't really sure what to expect before arriving, but when we got there we couldn't be happier. The photos don't do it justice. We stayed in the Baudelaire suite. It was a beautiful & spacious...
