The Carrington Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Loved staying at the Carrington. Very conveniently located and an amazing grand old hotel. They just don't make places like this anymore and it's great to see how well-maintained it is. Breakfasts (included) were very good too. Sat out on the front porch for hours one evening just enjoying the atmosphere.

My son and I spent two nights there. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful with our requests for local sightseeing information. There are several gathering rooms throughout the main floor for meeting with friends and family; they were all inviting and cozy. The dining room is exquisite! The breakfast that was included was, even though a cold buffet, incredible; I've never had such wonderful breakfasts! Next time I go to Katoomba, I will definitely stay there again (and then I'm going to search for the secret tunnel - ask staff about that one).

The Carrington Hotel was once considered one of the four finest hotels in the British Empire. Because it was built over 125 years ago, there are some limitations that go with that ... bathrooms are communal, though there are private stalls for shower / bath / toilet; the wood floors / stairs creak, and the wifi was a bit weak in our room / part of the hotel. For me, these things were outweighed by the opportunity to stay in such a grand hotel, with such history, character and charm. The staff was very helpful and friendly, and the included continental breakfast in the hotel dining room was great. The hotel is located a short distance from the Katoomba train station and the local buses stop right in front of the hotel. We walked to Echo Point from the hotel, hiked to Scenic World, caught the bus to Blackheath and Wentworth Falls for more hikes, and enjoyed some great meals and flat whites near the hotel on Katoomba Road. If staying in a historical hotel appeals to you, you'll love the Carrington!
