Guest Rooms

Each room at Hotel Blue is classically designed, with a hint of the hotel’s original character. All rooms feature an en-suite bathroom with shower, refrigerator and tea/coffee making facilities.  All room rates include a full cooked breakfast and free wifi is available through the hotel.


Hotel Blue’s Lounge and Parlour Bar are perfect as a relaxed, intimate space for live music. It’s not your average venue – it’s a spacious Lounge in an authentic 1920s hotel.  During the 50s, the Lounge was reincarnated as a dance hall, complete with polished timber floors, and was home to Katoomba’s Friday night dances. Later in its life, the Lounge was carpeted and became a relaxing space for hotel guests to enjoy a good book and play board games with the family while basking in front of the open fireplaces. Today, this versatile space continues to function as a lounge room for hotel guests, while also serving as a venue for casual, intimate live music performances.

The Parlour Bar

Hotel Blue is home to the Parlour Bar – a hand-carved timber bar with open fire and live music every Friday & Saturday Night. Besides the entertainment, what makes this little bar different to most in the Mountains is that we specialise in local and regional beer, wine and cider.  Don’t come here looking for a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc – instead, come and sample a sauv blanc from Orange, NSW, which is only a few hours away from Katoomba, and is one of Australia’s top cool-climate wine-producing regions.
