Good location near sightseeing, three sisters and scenic world. Good size neat room with all facilities suitable for family, including wifi. Seperate bunk bed area gives some privacy. Helpful and friendly staff

We stayed here again, as this is an easy place to sleep as it's so quiet. Spotlessly clean as well as handy to the The Sisters and Trolleybus. Happy to leave our car at the motel and be tourists for the day! The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom had an awesome shower. The bathroom was a little dated BUT it was soooooo clean! We'll be back.

A good location being an easy short walk to the Echo Point viewing area. What a view !
Reception was good with an explanation of what is around the area. The room was of a good size, clean, wifi, free parking. The building and rooms are perhaps a little dated but this did not detract from an enjoyable stay in Katoomba.

Just had 2 nights at the 3 Explorers motel and it was great. The local advice given and recommendations by the owner were all spot on. The room was very clean and the bed comfortable. A nice touch was the air conditioning on when we arrived. The location is good with a 300 metre walk to Echo Point and a 5 minute drive to town and Scenic World. Highly recommend the motel.

We booked late and this was one of the only places we could get in too. For location and price it was great value. Advertising for other places close by looked better, but on arrival, we had the pick of the bunch. It was clean, fresh but a little dated. However, totally worth it for a family visit to the three sisters which were great to see. Definitely glad we stayed here and not at some of the other dodgy places we saw close by.
