Historic Carrington Hotel, Blue Mountains
The Carrington Hotel has a long and rich history since her establishment by Sydney hotelier Harry Rowell more than one hundred and thirty years ago. Opened in 1883 as ‘The Great Western’, this Grand Old Lady soon became a popular mountain retreat for international visitors, the elite of Sydney, and those eager to see the natural wonders of the Blue Mountains.
Restored to its former grandeur, this heritage listed hotel is a local landmark offering the elegance, luxury and charm of yesteryear. Spacious guest rooms and suites are offered in an array of different styles, catering for all tastes and budgets. The Carrington Hotel is the perfect destination for a romantic getaway, family escape or a convenient base from which to explore the surrounding World Heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.
Situated in the heart of Katoomba, amidst cafes, restaurants, art galleries and gift stores, and only a few minutes walk from Katoomba Railway Station, the Hotel features an award winning Grand Dining Room (open Thursday to Saturday plus extra nights during school holidays), The Old City Bank Bar and Brasserie (at street level), Cocktail Bar, Billiards Room, guest lounges with open fires, free guest parking and more.
