Was once a majestic house standing proudly on the hilltop. but now the old girl needs a facelift. I was expecting a little more for $190 a night. Maybe thats the problem my expectations were a bit high. Leura is a popular place and i suppose price is set by supply and demand but this place had plenty of rooms...

If you want a very average experience then this is for you. Got in trouble b cause I came thru the wrong door when checking in. Historical old home with lots of "character". Not a romantic escape. The cottage was outdated and the breakfast was edible - barely.

Enjoyed a lovely overnight stay in old world charm. Very clean and aspect was lovely. Breakfast room and choice was very pleasant. Close to amenities and Leura town centre. Would love to visit again and take advantage of the many special features of the area.

This is a wonderful historic house with modern comforts yet retaining its old world charm. The grounds with off-street parking contain quiet relaxing gardens with good seating. Situated within easy walking distance of Leura Village gives the guests the access to a great selections of cafes and restaurants without using the car.

A great location, but unfortunately that's about it. Rooms are tired. Very poor breakfast ("hope you like poached eggs, because that's all we do" - they were as hard as rock, and the coffee was appallingly weak). A great pity, as it's a beautiful old house.

Hi Brian, Thank you for sharing your viewpoints We understand that people who are use to staying in a modern hotel with all the bells and whistles will be disappointed staying here. But as a historic guest house we are told by many guests not to modernise it as that is the charm of staying here Yes a basic breakfast...

Very disappointing in all aspect, decor, service and room. The only positive if any was the location, walking distance to Leura on the uppersit side of the railway to the village. Service especially was very poor and as far as we are concerned the thing that makes you remember and recommend a place to friends and family.

Thank you Conny for sharing your viewpoint There are those who book here and have the expectations of a 5 star motel and so feel underwhelmed with this historic guest house The decor is 1950's and that suites the house. But with any booking we do have pictures available of the rooms Thank you once again for sharing your viewpoint...

Really nice place. Quant, charm, and close to downtown Leura. There was enough privacy for your own retreat, yet in a beautiful stately mansion. You can walk to shops and restaurants in Leura and is a better place to stay than Katoomba.

This is a lovely old house with spacious areas guest areas and huge and very comfortable bedrooms in a great location. However the breakfast was very disappointing, really basic and uninteresting continental (cooked only on weekends apparently), plus no gluten free bread, despite having requested it for one member of our party.
