Tijdens uw rondreis Australië zijn de Blue Mountains zeker een bezoek waard. De Blue Mountains strekken zich zo’n 100 kilometer ten westen van Sydney uit. Dit 1100 meter hoge berggebied biedt waarlijk fantastische uitzichten en spectaculaire kloven.
De blauwe glans die de bergen hun naam heeft gegeven is het resultaat van de fijne blauwachtige waas die geproduceerd wordt door de hier talrijk aanwezige eucalyptusbomen. Het toeristische centrum van de Blue Mountains is de plaats Katoomba.
"Short stay of one night"
Stayed here for one night in February 17. Arrived at the property and parking was reserved out the front. Nice touch. Check in was smooth and got upgraded as Accor platinum member. Room was as expected, bed comfortable and good size TV. Eucalypt restaurant was a let down. 3 courses go for $82 pp and we had to wait almost 1.5 hours for the main. Only had oysters before and a small entree. Not good enough when charging these sort of prices.
"Fairmont Resort Pet Room Weekend to beat the Heat"
It was 43 degrees in Sydney and the weekend weather was forecast as hot, hot, hotter. The air conditioner was gasping and so my husband, Frankie the Birman cat and I packed a bag and headed up the mountains to relax at the Fairmont Resort. We had never travelled with Frankie (a 13 year old rescue cat) but he was very well behaved and seemed to enjoy the air conditioned trip. After a 90 minute drive on the freeway, we arrived and were welcomed by Bart, a fellow cat lover and wonderful Fairmont Resort employee. Bart had our luggage and Frankie (in his wire carrier) on the trolley and out of the heat and into the cool Lobby in a flash. Bart even offered Frankie bottled water on arrival! The Receptionists Philomena, Nathan and Michelle and others checked us in quickly, and all gushed over Frankie. Frankie acted as though he always stayed at the Resort and the attention was natural. When Frankie is happy, his eyes are very blue. Well Ol' Blue Eyes was very happy! The spacious Pet Room should be renamed the Pampered Pet Room; as there was a very comfortable king bed for my husband and I, a beautiful lounge suite, a large wall mounted television and a full bath and all the luxuries and decor of a McGallery standard room. There was also very private fenced courtyard area for dog guests but Frankie was to be a indoor cat. If it had been cooler, we would have had a glass of wine in the little courtyard, surrounded by edwardian style gardens and with views of the mountains. We had packed a litter tray and antiseptic wipes though I am sure the lovely Jess in housekeeping would have been kind enough to provide us with cloths if any accidents had occurred. We packed Frankie's usual pet and people food so his routine was relatively undisturbed. I had been concerned that the Pet Room may have had dog odours and Frankie would be unsettled; but the wood-look tiled floors and furniture had been cleaned so thoroughly, that Frankie was happy from the moment he stepped out of his carrier. My husband and I saw Frankie had settled quickly into his evening routine (dinner and a cat nap); so we ventured out for a lovely meal and a wander around the beautiful Resort grounds. The gardens and lake were cool and beautiful, the fellow guests friendly conversationalists and on our return, we found Frankie in the centre of the king bed, fast asleep. We booked for two nights and drove home in the cool night air, refreshed and relaxed. Yes, we can thoroughly recommend the Pampered Pet Room at the Fairmont Resort in Leura. We three shall be returning for another weekend retreat very soon, now we have discovered the delights of the Fairmont Resort. Happy travels, fellow pet owners!
My husband and I have been staying at the Fairmont for a number of years now. It's our special place as it's where my husband proposed. Our last visit was by far the best we've had. The service has really improved, the food was delicious and the sommelier was fantastic. He chose the wine for each course and was spot on with his choice. The setting is stunning and while the rooms are a little bland the beds are super comfy. Thanks for a wonderful 24 hours. We will definitely come back.
"Neither one or the other"
Fabulous location on the Edge of the beautiful town of Leura. Amazing views from one of the restaurants overlooking the mountains. Staff excellent and very knowledgeable of the area. The food we had was lovely. There is a pool at this hotel, which does require updating to a degree and the water in the pool is freezing! My only gripe being that this hotel appears to be geared more towards the Corporate customer. The was a large contingent at the hotel from one company who were having what appeared to be their annual get together which proved to be quite noisy both during the day when they were doing their activities and also in the evening around the restaurant area. It needs to decide what clientele it is trying to attract. It could be so much more if it catered more for couples and families.
"Does not live up to potential "
We had high hopes and really wanted to love this place, but it fell below our expectations. This resort has fantastic bones, lovely gardens and a dreamy setting in the most beautiful village in the Blue Mountains. There are nice indoor and outdoor pools. But the property is mismanaged and poorly maintained, with uneven service. Why was there a small rubbish bin overflowing with trash every day next to the hotel's front entryway? Why was the hotel entrance carpeting so battered, wrinkled and disgusting looking? Our suite had a bathroom that looked new but was unfortunately done on the cheap - cheap looking tiles, cheap fixtures and lacking in towel racks. The housekeeping was also subpar - our shower had mildew in the corner and black areas in the grout that easily came off when I scraped lightly with a fingernail on our last day, which meant no one bothered to scrub our shower before or during our stay. The elevators were so banged up they looked like they had been through war. The carpeting in our suite was so old it was unraveling. The hotel provides misleading information, and nickels and dimes guests in unpleasant ways. The "bowling" touted on the website? It is a coin-operated arcade game with "bowling" balls the size of a large orange. The rest of the arcade games are grossly overpriced, not well curated and frankly, cheapens the image of the hotel. If you pay top dollar for a suite with a sofa bed for the kids like we did, know that the hotel will then charge you an extra fee every night for using that sofa bed as a bed. The hotel also disingenuously claimed that all Accor hotels charge guests extra for using their sofa beds as beds - which is not true, as the Accor hotel we stayed at in Sydney did not charge us extra for using our sofa bed as a bed. The breakfast buffet was fine. Steer clear of the dinner buffet - a total rip-off. Very few selections, the skimpiest looking dinner buffet I've seen in many years of travel.
