We already thought Sky Rider Motor Inn was good value for money, but then were blown away by the fantastic service they provided. We only stayed one night and I had a marathon starting nearby on the morning of my stay (Six Foot Track). We had chosen to stay at the Sky Rider Inn because it was a short walk...

Paid $170 for a family room for 5, room was nice and clean. Friendly staff, found out that when we stayed the owner was away and a lady from Melbourne was in charge of the property - well seems like she did a great job. Breakfast was good and very reasonably priced. The property is not really in the main...

We stayed at the Skyrider Inn during our road trip through NSW. The room easily accomodated myself, my partner and our three young kids. The rooms are modern, air conditioned and the staff are lovely. The inn also has a pool and BBQ facilities and is only 5 minutes drive from Katoomba Street or 10 minutes from echo point.

Staff were incredibly friendly from the very beginning including offering us to a larger room as we had so much baggage and explaining the local area. Rooms were a good size, very clean and had everything you needed. There was a pool though we didn't use it. 10 minute walk into the main town of Katoomba and a very good...
