    There was really nothing to like about this place.

    Do not stay at this place! For the high price we paid we got a small room with crumbling plaster, no extra blanket, an air-conditioning system that could not be worked from our room (only after complaining, the manager switched on the heating... But even after that when I switched off the a/c after I while I could not turn it back on!), no stopper for the bath tub, a missing light bulb, no minibar and no hand towels. The hotel folder in the room said bath robes for the sauna could be obtained from the reception; however at reception I was told that they only had towels. The folder said the sauna was open 24 hours a day and that several types of massages were available. However, the sauna closed at 8pm and only one type of massage was available. The sauna was switched off when I went there. After alerting the manager he allegedly turned it on and said it would be ready within 10 minutes. After an hour it still was not hot.

    My partner and I enjoyed our stay at the Palais Royal. The staff were exceptionally friendlly, helpful and polite. Apparently the weekend we stayed the Head Concierge informed us that the hotel had recently changed management and the running of the Hotel had improved significantly. I tend to agree, the whole experience of our weekend stay at this beautiful and historic hotel was amazing. Our room was very clean, the king size bed was very comfortable, better than any of the 5 star hotels I've stayed at, the staff were very accommodating, the buffet breakfast was plentiful, fresh & delicious. The decor, lounge areas were exquisite and inviting. The hotel is in the main street of Katoomba, and walking distance to cafes, restaurants, shops, etc... I would definitely recommend anyone to stay at the Palais Royal, we really enjoyed our stay there. And if you decide to stay, make sure you say hello to Ron at the front desk, he is ever so friendly and helpful. Enjoy!! Kerrie & Mark

    Very clean & comfortable.

    There is a surcharge for booking with a credit card. This should be stated when booking. Tried to access the night duty person about 9.30pm. There was no answer despite numerous attempts. There was a notice at reception asking to contact night duty staff if required.

    Room was spacious; tasty breakfast

    Did not like the fact that there is no swimming pool facility or secured parking

    Unfortunately, we had a very average stay. One of the clientelle became very inebriated and caused 3 hours of disruption before the hotel was prepared to eject them. Only when we requested that they police be called that action was taken.

    Location, offered breakfast in the price

    Not very accommodating when I tried to arrange to check in only 1 hour early. The paint in the bathroom was peeling. The dining room was depressing. Room cold and difficult to heat. Air con unit noisy and took a long time to warm the room. No electrick blankets

    Lovely building and interiors - old world charm. Close to shops and cafes. Helpful and friendly staff.

  • Older travelers

    Great reception, warm people, the staff were nice

    The Palais Royale itself.... Very old building not very well maintained... Felt like the lights were going to fall from the roof... Beds were extremely hard and uncomfortable, heating in such a cold climate was not the best... We stayed in the best room and considering the price and what we got was a little disappointing, there were very little creature comforts... No foxtel, no biscuits with the coffee facilities.... Cheap towels and a spa that did not work properly.... Left wishing not to return.

    I stayed at the Palais Royale with my family when I was 8 years old. Its still as beautiful now as it was back then, some 40 years ago,
