Recent guest reviews

So relaxing here, with a spectacular bedroom view and balcony! Enjoyed the pool and billiards room with comfortable leather chairs. Breakfast was delicious too. Easy to walk from here along the mountain walks.

We were not disppointed by our stay at the Echoes. We had a room with a balcony view and it was splendid. Although the restaurant was closed, we just walked across the driveway to its sister property the Lillianfels for breakfast and happy hour. The only suggestion is for more power outlets in the room.

Location of the hotel was perfect - we had an amazing view from our room and terrace although it was too cool to sit out at the time of year. We were just a few minutes from Scenic World and all the amazing viewpoints - it’s stunning! The room was well equipped if a little small and the bed was very comfortable. The restaurant was a bit odd and rather small although the view was pretty. Dinner staff seemed a little worried about a large party near us & kept apologising for the noise, although there was an adjacent room where they could have been put! Food was a bit average in spite of the slightly overdone service. We had to go next door to their sister hotel Lilianfels to get lunch which was a bit disappointing. Staff were pleasant and friendly.

Details ~ Couples stay. Sunday night only in Evans terrace room (small courtyard no balcony). We didn’t use any amenities except the restaurant on this trip. I would stay here again. Pros ~ beautiful views from room & restaurant easy walk to Lilianfels park & lookout over 3 Sisters (also bistro, bar & milkbar) Close to walking tracks nicely appointed room Restaurant food was AMAZING Good, attentive service (staff are well informed & helpful) fast speed wifi available for $15 Robes & slippers, hairdryer & iron supplied Lovely bathroom toiletry products supplied Communal outdoor areas are pretty Parking available Cons ~ Room & restaurant are expensive (but worth it in my opinion) Phone signal is not good at all (need to find a high point outside) Free wifi for guests is incredibly slow and has a max you can easily exceed Room terrace / balcony’s are not private at all If you had noisy neighbours it would be disruptive Tips~ Not all rooms have a good view, Evans, Paterson, Cox & Govett have a terrace with views so rooms above these with balconies would too The Wentworth corner room is the best room Book a verandah table for sunset in the restaurant & take your camera Take fitness clothing for walking tracks Do a scenic walk at sunrise Do a midweek trip, far fewer people around Parking around the scenic spots is difficult, wait until later in the afternoon when everyone has left (still lots of light in summer) If you want a cheaper food option take a blanket and have a picnic in Lilianfels park Go to the Lilianfels 3 Sisters lookout really early in the morning there is absolutely no one there on a weekday morning so plenty of uninterrupted photo ops

We stayed for 2 nights and were blessed with good weather. We did not use restaurant and instead had takeout on our deck each evening. The hotel parking was a bit of an issue and it was constantly full making ducking in and out a bit more tricky. Coffee machine in room was outstanding.

Sensational view and very attentive service for a birthday lunch. The menu is a little limited for choice. I did settle for the lamb cutlets which were perfectly cooked. Sadly they were served with swiss chard which has a very strong taste that tended to overwhelm other foods. The potato accompanying dish was delicious. This is quite a smallish meal and we should have ordered some side dishes. Dessert was a pear tartlet which was pleasant. Husband had a mushroom risotto which could have been better presented. Overall quite an expensive meal with absolutely sensational views.

Stayed 2 days midweek. Highlight is the stunning views over the Megalong Valley. Good location 5 mins walk to Echo Pt and 3 mins drive to town centre. Corner view suite is spacious, comfortable and quiet. Clean, well equipped and a great shower. 3 floors but no lift! Not good for mobility problems or big cases. Good free Wi-Fi and friendly staff. Very good restaurant open for B,L and D. You also have full access to Lilianfells Resort next door, including 2 pool, gym and tennis courts. A premium price but you get top quality. However if you cancel within a week of stay there is NO refund.

We were treated to a fantastic lunch after our son proposed to his girlfriend in the middle of the Blue Mountains. Echoes is that special restaurant perched on the edge of the Jamison Valley at Echo Point in the Blue Mountains. The site offers panorama views of the National Park from the restaurant locations and an amazing landscape. While the building itself is elegant the architecture also boasts the simplicity of years past. The menu was reflective of Australia's international influences which included very fresh vegetables and boutique Australian wines. The menu was a little pricey but worth every penny for the view and fantastic waiter services. Definitely a go to place in the Blue Mountains.

The hotel has wonderful views, gardes and excellent kitchen. We managed to book the corner view room and were not disappointed. Magnificent views of the mountains with rain and shine provide very different but enjoyable sceneries. The restaurant is quite nice and cozy, the bar is very nice, the fitness centre however needs real work in terms of equipment. Staff always very polite and helpful, I would certainly return to this hotel should I have the chance and I would certainly recommend it.

Expensive treat but for shear quality of accommodation, views and dining it cannot be beaten. Additional facilities of adjacent hotel can also be utilised in particular the pool and the bar. Breakfast is also served here.
