Echo Point and the 3 Sisters

To tide us over and allow a more relaxing, enjoyable trip to the Blue Mountains, we booked 2 x Double Rooms at the Echo Point Inn. The joint is classified as a 3 star and … it didn’t disappoint. Yes, the décor is working class, a little rough, just like us and more than adequate for a warm cozy night’s sleep.

Location is awesome.

The Inn/motel is a very short walk from the Echo Point lookout where we got to take some great photos of the 3 sisters. The kids have already booked us in to come back so we can do the walk to the 3 sisters.

There’s outdoor space at the motel for relaxing if you just wanted to do something close.

Facilities are good

The motel has seen better days, but for us the major items were, connected rooms, clean linen, clean place, and working ‘stuff’

The carpeting is industrial, wears well and one of the rooms looked like it had been recently recarpetted. The furniture is weary but solid and sheened. Clean, that goes a long way in our books. Good enough to recommend coming back.

The TVs worked, no cable, but enough channels we had something for the kids to watch and wind down from the day’s hiking. Of course, it was also a great excuse for getting up early, get some breakfast out of the way to watch more TV..

Missing bits?

With 6 bodies in 2 rooms, we’re bound to be short a few things, so if you’ve got our numbers a few things we had to supply.

  • Additional wash cloths
  • Cereal bowls

Service ?

The two trips to the counter was a good experience with the two different attendants both very pleasant and willing to give us local knowledge to help us enjoy our stay.

We arrived a little later than expected, no worries, and let me show you where your rooms are. If you need anything the desk is open till 8:00pm, please call.

After check-out, we wanted to walk down to the look-out, no worries leave it parked out there, how ever long you need.
