Boutique Hotels & Guesthouses


Since the turn of the century (last century, that is!) the Blue Mountains has lured visitors from Sydney and beyond, with charming guesthouses and intimate hotels featuring roaring log fires, period antiques and beautiful cool climate gardens often the accommodation of choice.

Those traditions continue today, with many tourists seeking the simplicity, grace and intimacy of yesteryear in traditional boutique properties such as the Metropole in Katoomba, heritage-listed Palais Royale, grand Hotel Mountain Heritage or the elegant Kurrara, a former private mansion. 

Echoes Boutique Hotel is also a former home - albeit a much newer one, dating to the 1990s when it was a retreat for the famous Australian novelist, Thomas Keneally. Today it is part of the Escarpment Group, offering sleek modern rooms with Federation touches and incredible views across the Jamison Valley.

With their old-fashioned hospitality and roots in the history and lore of the Blue Mountains, the following properties will transport you to another era.
