Heritage Hotel Katoomba
The Palais Royale Boutique Hotel is a heritage hotel Katoomba. Located in the upper Blue Mountains, this heritage hotel is surrounded by beautiful views with the Blue Mountains National Park as far as the eye can see.
The Palais has a rich history dating back to 1896 when it was first constructed as two separate cottages. The Palais Hotel has a long and fascinating history during which it was a day and boarding school for ladies before becoming a guesthouse in 1912. Following this, a second story and the Grand Ballroom were constructed and The Palais became the number one place to stay in the Blue Mountains, maintaining a reputation for being the most charming accommodation for the most affluent guests in the region well into the 1950s. In the 70s, The Palais became the Commonwealth Bible College, with the famous ballroom used as a lecture theatre. It wasn’t until 1997 that the hotel was resold again and a multi-million dollar restoration began turning it into the exceptional hotel it is today! So for a stay that is swimming in rich cultural history, book your stay at The Palais heritage hotel Katoomba.
