Located just a short stroll from the spectacular Jenolan Caves, this historic hotel offers a range of accommodations options. The award-winning restaurant features a stunning grand dining room. They had just re-opened after a long close so they did really well considering.
Featuring barbecue facilities and a restaurant, Big Trout Motel is located in Oberon. At the motel, every room comes with a wardrobe, a flat-screen TV and a private bathroom. The reception was very welcoming. I asked for an extra towel and I got it immediately. Very friendly staff.
The family-owned and operated Titania Motel features a garden with barbecue facilities and provides free Wi-Fi. All rooms are nonsmoking and offer a flat-screen TV. Parking was close to the room. The room was warm but not stuffy. The bed was very comfortable with fresh new bed clothes. The Motel did not offer breakfast but there were facilities in the room to store (Fridge) and to prepare a light breakfast (Toaster) as well as coffee and tea making (Coffee and Tea supplied). It was very well set up for a low cost room.
Located in Oberon, Royal Hotel Oberon offers a bar. Among the facilities of this property are a restaurant, a shared kitchen and a shared lounge, along with free WiFi. The hotel has family rooms. Country hospitality. Room was good size. I had a share bathroom which was super clean and nice. The fire next to bar to sit and have a wine when it was zero degrees out.
The Jenolan Caves are very beautiful, and the park staff are extremely knowledgeable and giving with their information. Our stay wasn’t long enough because I’d love to explore a few of the other caves on offer.
We enjoyed our dinner experience in the lovely old dining room - loads of atmosphere and when grants are applied it will be even better. Love the old-worldly charm. Both dinner and breakfast were excellent and the staff were terrific. We enjoyed our after-dinner Cave Walk - a perfect way to work off our dinner. Guide was very personable and knowledgeable. Next time we visit we hope to stay in Caves House rather than Mountain House ... hopefully the renovations will have taken place.
We visited Lucas Cave and The Temple of Baal cave. Enjoyed both immensely. Both tour guides David and Steven were very knowledgeable. My favourite out of the two was probably The Temple of Baal, a different type of cave formation. Lucas Cave had over 900 stairs but didn't seem that many. Coloured lighting in Lucas.
We have always loved Jenolean Caves. But since the fires, mud slides and rock falls. It has seen better times. For one of Sydney's premier tourist attractions. It surprises me that there is not more funding for the site. There is restoration work in progress but much of it is yet to be finished.
Last time we visited, some year ago, the area was buzzing but due to Covid restrictions, there were very few people around, as the caves had only just re-opened with sever restrictions on numbers. Book cave tours before you go would be my advice. Lots of walking as we stayed in accommodation up the hill from Caves House. Jenolan Caves also has some beautiful (but steep) walks. It is the start or end of the Six Foot Track and we followed the trail for a bit before our cave tour. Lovely walks to Carlotta Arch and down into the Valley to the old cricket pitch, which took us over suspension bridges and through canyons. We saw lots of wildlife, kangaroos, lizards and lyrebirds. Amaxzng.
The road in was a bit tricky as recent flooding had affect the main road so had to come in via Oberon (Edith Road) an interesting experience. The accommodation was at Caves House and it is superb. A great place to explore and see the difficulties our ancestors experienced. Undertook the Lucas Cave tour and enjoyed our guides in depth knowledge of how the cave came into being and the added stories of the early inhabitants’ exploration. Most enjoyable. Word of warning though to 6' footers and above do remember to duck occasionally - watching steps I kept finding the roof the hard way (only twice - I learned quickly). Very Highly recommended.
