Some reviews and comments from our recent visitors

Wonderful Experience!

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
undoubtedly 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!

"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."

"We took our four children for a country weekend break to the Blue Mountains Observatory. We expected to come away from the whole experience having relaxed, and we really did - the setting is beautiful, the property clean, spacious and had everything we could have asked for. What we didn't expect to come away with, was an experience which opened our eyes to something absolutely amazing. The Astro tour with Hassan was INCREDIBLE. We saw and learnt so much, his enthusiasm was infectious and we now have a permanent and revered appreciation of our stars, galaxy's and planets as seen through the Blue Mountains Observatory telescopes. Thank you, thank you, thank you."

Thank you very much.

Thanks Geoff for the follow on email after our wonderful stay in the Observatory Cottage.
We had a lovely stay in a top class accommodation. It was very clean, neat, and very well appointed. We will definitely be coming back to stay in this cottage and will also inform our friends.

Thank you also for your prompt correspondences and all the information you provided in the area. It certainly came in handy when we were looking for places of interests and trail walks.

We love this place! In spite of the worst weather possible, 2 days of torrential rain, we had a lovely time. The wood burning stove was awesome and the view was beautiful.
Hasen could not have been more hospitable !!
We will definitely return to spend more time, see some stars and enjoy Hasen's company !
