Blue Mountains Getaways
Why Blue Mountains Getaways chose Leura
This property has an amazing feature - it is a working observatory and included (in the cleaning fee) is a stargazing tour with a trained astronomer.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
We had a very relaxing getaway in this lovely cottage.
We loved the Blue Mountains Observatory Cottage. It a was peaceful bushland setting and a convenient base to explore the Blue Mountains. The highlight of our stay was the Star Gazing experience, we were blown away by all the stars, galaxies and nebulas! Thank you to Arthur and Ben who made it so enjoyable and informative. We now have a budding 7 year old astronomer!
We all enjoyed our stay but we where charged $715 for two nights in the advertisements the charging was $300 per night. As much as we enjoyed our stay you might look into providing better mattress on the bottom bunk and the front room mattres. I all so believe that the kitchen needs some love and attention on the cleaning side. There also needs attention to the flooring as there where a few spots that the nail heads are sticking up. You might like the check that the cleaner is actually spending the payed time cleaning.
We are sorry that you did not seem to enjoy your stay , unlike the many others who have at Observatory Cottage since 2010, The listing shows the pricing is FROM $300 per night and you are advised of the rate in writing for your stay when you make your booking and you accepted that so I do not see how you can complain. Your remarks will be referred to the cleaners for their attention.
The additional astronomy experience is a must!
I was lucky enough to come across this gem whilst searching for an observatory in the Blue Mountains area. If I were to describe to someone not only the type of accommodation I was looking for but also the experience tied to it, this would be it. The cottage itself is flawless, amazing location, beautiful inside and out, very well maintained. Bundled with the stay is an astronomy tour, do yourself a favour and experience it! It is an additional investment, but well worth it. An observing experience like no other with a professional astronomer, you will both acquire a wealth of knowledge and be marvelled by the beauty of the cosmos. With out a doubt by far our most memorable stay from home.
