HOTEL BLUE - Something Old is New Again
Located in Australia's spectacular Blue Mountains district, Hotel Blue is a boutique 1920s hotel that captures the charm and character of a bygone era.
Hotel Blue features 24 cosy, comfortable Guest Rooms, a spacious Lounge with log fires, a boutique Bar, in-house Restaurant, Cafe, free live jazz every weekend, free cooked breakfast for all hotel guests and free WiFi.
Allow yourself to step back into yesteryear, amidst the rich art-deco style furnishings. Ornate chandeliers, velvet flocked wallpaper, beautiful antique furniture, richly embellished ceilings and hand-carved timber panelling, with old-time jazz and blues tunes playing in the background, give Hotel Blue its unique ambience, reminiscent of days gone by.
Sink into a comfortable arm chair and bask in front of a roaring log fire in the open fireplace in the spacious Guest Lounge during the winter months, or enjoy a game of pool or cards. Refresh yourself with a relaxing drink in the intimate Parlour Bar, which particularly showcases the produce of regional wineries and breweries. The elegant in-house Sisters Blue Restaurant offers fine modern Australian cuisine, with an ever-evolving menu, and also offers unique dinner theatre experiences. The vibrant street-side Café 88 is a great place for a relaxing cup of coffee.
Hotel Blue is conveniently situated only 5 minutes’ walk from Katoomba’s central shopping and dining district, 10 minutes' walk from Katoomba Railway Station, and 15 minutes’ stroll from Echo Point’s World Heritage-listed views of the iconic Three Sisters and the Blue Mountains National Park.
Each of Hotel Blue's comfortable Guest Rooms is equipped with a private en suite bathroom, 32-inch LED television with selected Foxtel channels, tea- and coffee-making facilities and fridge. Free WiFi is also available throughout all Guest Rooms and public areas of the Hotel.

Editor’s note: Mature Traveller readers will remember this hotel when it was Felton Woods. During that time we sent many thousands of readers there on mid-week package deals.
We will be visiting Hotel Blue in early July, to see the Goons Show Live and to stay a day or two, trying out the accommodation and restaurants. Look forward to our review.
