Cosy Base

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at Haveli. We stayed here as 2 couples. The place had a good central room with Fireplace and kitchen, good views across the Blue Mountains and plenty of beds. It was very comfortable and the owners have written a fantastic overview booklet. It's 2mins drive from Katoomba town centre and a good base for exploring nearby Echo Point, 3 sisters, Leura and Scenic World. To top it off there is great Indian food at the end of the street! The only criticisms are that the fireplace had not been cleaned, firewood logs were too thick, and there was no axe to split them down and the place was hard to find when arriving at night and could benefit from a sensor light. Otherwise loved it.

Owner's Response: Hi Steve, Thanks for the great feedback. We are glad that you had lovely time at the Indian Haveli. We purposely do not clean ash out of the combustion fire. It is is considerably easier to get the fire started with a nice bed of ash. We supply kindling and the smaller 8-10 inch firewood, so there should be no need for an axe. I am guessing that you tried to put the larger firewood on too early. Yes, a solar light is on my list of things to do for the house number. Kind Regards, Mark

Lovely views

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed the stay but the house is not well equipped for warm (30 degrees) weather, and some of the facilities could be improved. Also, since there are two properties part of the one building there was some noise from the people renting the other part of the house. But it is spacious and lovely views throughout.

Owner's Response: Hi Anna, Thank you for your feedback, and glad that you enjoyed the views. I am sorry that you found it too hot at the retreat, but the recent summer has broken all records for the amount of days 30 degrees and over in Katoomba. We normally only get a handful of days around 30 degrees. But I will consider air conditioning for the next summer, if another extreme summer is forecast. I apologise for the noise that you encountered from the guests in the neighbouring suite. The walls are soundproofed between the suites, and the great majority of our guests realise that our retreat is designed for a quiet, relaxing stay. We are quite clear about this during the booking process, but, sadly, the very occasional guest disregards our rules on noise.

Loved our weekend at Indian Havali. Great place to catch up with friends, cook together and play some card games around the table.

The views were great.

Fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful place to stay. Clean, well equipped and close to town. Fantastic mountain views from all windows.

A perfect house to stop over the night before, my husband and I tackled the gruelling 3 days six foot track.
