Collits Inn - Bed & Breakfast and Function Venue

Bedrooms 5
Property type hotel


About the property

Located at the base of Mount York the sight of the original Blue Mountains crossing by early explorers Blaxland, Lawson and Wentworth in 1813.

Collits Inn was built in 1823 and a truly unique property and remains as the oldest standing set of buildings west of the Blue Mountains.

Over the years the inn has undergone many changes, most notably in 1998 when Christine and Russell Stewart purchased the property and set about a massive restoration after years of neglect. And what a job they did not only restoring the inn to near original condition but also discreetly adding a few modern features.

We had a lovely weekend stay in Winter with an open fire, superb food and even 2 day old lambs to feed. Our hosts were great and made our stay very memorable.

Absolutely loved our stay at Collits. We were married at Collits 5 years ago and decided to visit on our anniversary & am so happy we did (it was a lot less stressful this time!) The inn is so historic and cosy, the bed was so comfy and the farm was peaceful and serene. We loved sitting by the dam having a picnic reminiscing about our amazing day at the venue. Cheryl and Chris could not have been more accommodating & still allowed us plenty of alone time. Really enjoyed getting to read about the inn and appreciate the history, we particularly enjoyed exploring the graveyard on the back of the farm & watching the sheep and goats and keeping our eyes peeled for the Kangaroo's.

Collits' Inn, Hartley Vale

Excellent historical property

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation , the food and the hospitality were excellent. For anybody interested in early Australian history Collit's Inn is a must. The surrounding tourist features were great and we found Lithgow surprisingly interesting.
