Hotel, Restaurant & Cafe Open, but Caves Temporarily Closed

Our hotel and historic Chisolm's Restaurant are open for pre-booked guests. Our Caves Cafe and 3 of our beautiful bushwalks are open.  However, our cave tours are still closed, due to COVID-19 restrictions. We are continuing to monitor advice from the NSW Government Chief Medical Officer and NSW Health, with regard to safely reopening the cave tours.  We greatly appreciate your patience, while we continue to prioritise the health and safety of our staff and visitors.

Caves House is an icon of Blue Mountains accommodation.  In 1897, NSW Government Architect, Walter Liberty Vernon, designed and built it, as a wilderness retreat.  He used the alpine, picturesque  'Federation, Arts and Crafts' style. Caves House is on the NSW State Heritage Register

Within Caves House, there are 2 main types of guestrooms :

  • 'Classic', with Queen size bed and ensuite
  • 'Grand Classic' , with King Size bed and ensuite

Please see our booking page for full details of each guestroom type. 

Our photos are an indication only

We must stress that in historic Caves House, every room is different - different shape, slightly different size, different view, different furnishings and colours.  Even window style, shapes and sizes vary from room to room. Some rooms even have bay windows - but only some.  As it is not practical to publish photographs of all 40 rooms, we hope that the images below give you an idea of the 'look and feel' of our rooms. But please do not expect to get a room that looks exactly like one of these photos.

Unique Blue Mountains Accommodation

Our guestrooms in historic Caves House are old, and they take you back in time.  They have no telephones or televisions to spoil the experience and are decorated in a style reminiscent of the late Victorian or early Edwardian eras.  

If you stay in Caves House, you will be only a minute's stroll downstairs to the magnificent Chisolm's Restaurant, open every day for breakfast and dinner.

Please note that we no longer accept American Express.
