This is our third visit to one of Lorraine's exceptional homes. The Gatsby is situated within a short walk to the Three Sisters or the Scenic Railway, a big plus with parking at such a popular tourist site difficult. The home was all you would expect of a Mountain Whispers experience, welcoming, warm and comfort plus. Sitting in the spa with champagne, in front of the gas log fire with port and then enjoying the lovely supplies for breakfast. You want to go explore the lovely blue mountains but you don't want to leave the house either. Very much looking forward to next year and visiting Lorraine's "Varenna".
We loved every minute of our 2 night stay at The Gatsby. From the moment you walk through the door - the impact is WOW! Luxury bedding, stunning bathroom and decor make for a luxurious and comfortable stay. Lorraine's attention to detail is amazing - from the warmth and soft music on arrival to the wonderful breakfast provisions. We would highly recommend The Gatsby and would love to experience the other Mountain Whispers properties.
The Gatsby at Katoomba is within easy walking distance to both Scenic world and Echo Point (The Three Sisters). From the moment we arrived we were impressed with the level of detail that had been included. The accommodation had everything one could want, luxury beds and bedding, plush carpets throughout. The Gatsby was immaculately presented. We stayed four nights as part of the UTA running festival. We were extremely happy to be able to relax in a hot spa after a hard day on the tracks and trails. The complimentary bath towels and slippers added that extra touch to relax into the lounge with a gas fire and a complimentary glass of wine or port. The kitchen, had all the utensils and condiments that you normally have to go out and buy or bring yourself making meal preparation simple. The inclusion of a dishwasher also made cleaning up easy. I can't praise this place enough, from the piped music throughout the house to the heated bathroom floor, to the entertaining BBQ area. If you are looking for a luxury self contained weekend away in the Blue Mountains you can't go past The Gatsby.
We were looking for somewhere to stay that was close to the scenic railway but also special as it was for our honeymoon. I had read about the Mountain Whispers properties and they all had fabulous reviews. From the moment I contacted Lorraine to make some enquiries her fabulous customer service was clear. Despite the time difference as I was organising from the UK she was always prompt with her responses and very helpful.
We choose to stay in "The Gatsby" as this was closest to the attractions we wanted to see during our stay. The house was amazing and Lorraine clearly has a keen eye for detail.
As it was our honeymoon I booked the romantic package. We both thoroughly enjoyed our facial and massage and our therapist Anna was great, she made us both feel very relaxed and also passed on her local knowledge.
We also organised for the chef to come and cook our dinner. It was delicious. The rib eye with mushroom sauce was amazing, thank you Trish!
I would recommend to anyone who is thinking of staying in the area. I am just disappointed that we don't live closer as i would definitely stay again.
Thank you Lorraine for all your help and creating such a gem!
Second stay at one of the Mountain Whispers properties, and once again, a real treat!! Absolutely AMAZING! The place to be for Rest & Relaxation. The places are superb, and am extremely keen to stay at the all :) Easy communications with the host, Lorraine, helpful in all areas, and gave it that extra special touch knowing it had been my birthday a day earlier to arriving! :) Thankyou again. A truly special weekend was had by all!
