“An unforgettable stay at the unforgettable "The Gatsby".”

Reviewed 26 Jul 2015

I travel extensively for business, often staying in 5 star hotels. Staying at The Gatsby is superior to a 5 star hotel. I am so glad that we decided to dine in and take advantage of this elegant home, where such attention has been paid to every detail to ensure the comfort of The Gatsby's guests. After dinner our party of 6 retired to the lounge with its welcoming fire and a glass of complimentary port. Our stay at The Gatsby exceeded our expectations and left us wanting to return.

Response from the owner It was wonderful welcoming you and your friends Penny to The Gatsby over the weekend. Loved the photo you sent me of you and your friend all dressed up in your 1920s glamour and posing in front of the fireplace, very befitting indeed. It certainly was a time to kick up your heels and enjoy the moment, which is seems you all did. A lovely pleasure reading your review and I sincerely look forward to welcoming you all back to Mountain Whispers very soon. Take care, Lorraine :-)

“Another amazing property”

Reviewed 6 Jul 2015

This is the second time my partner and I have stayed at a Mountain Whispers property and yet again, it was fabulous. From the warmth as you enter the front door, to the heated tiles in the bathroom, to the roaring fire in the lounge room. You could not ask for more. If you want somewhere to go to just relax, put your feet up and read a good book in front of the fire, then this is the place. You may even like to have a drop or two of port to go with it. Everything in the property has been thought of. A magical stay. We will return, but to which property, I am undecided!!

Response from the owner Thank you for your lovely review Niall. Yes, you've now stayed at 2 of the 4 properties, which one next? Always a delight welcoming a return guest back to Mountain Whispers. Look forward to your return visit with Jo, with sincerest regards, Lorraine

“Fantastic girls weekend venue”

Reviewed 15 Jun 2015

My friends and I were looking for a cosy yet exciting place for our weekend getaway and The Gatsby ticked all our boxes. The Décor is amazing and I must comment on how clean it was (compared to most other places) When we come back to the blue mountains this will be the first place I look for availability :)

Response from the owner Thank you for your review of The Gatsby Josephine. By the looks of all your canyoning photos of the canyoning adventure I arranged for you, looks like the ladies all had a great day. Looking forward to welcoming you all back very soon. Until then, many thanks, Lorraine

“Old world charm with modern convenience.”

Reviewed 23 Feb 2015

"The Gatsby" is located a short distance from the famous three sisters and centrally located between Katoomba and Leura. This was our second time staying in a Mountain Whispers property, where we celebrated our one year anniversary . We were greeted by a nice warm fire , softly playing music that perfectly suited the style of the home, which was just what was required on a cool rainy day. Shortly after we were both incredibly relaxed after our couples massage and facial by the amazing Dione followed by a soul reviving spa bath framed by stunning stained glass windows. In all our travel around the world we can say this was the most comfortable bed. No detail is overlooked. Our stay was amazing from the moment we opened the door to the time we unfortunately had to head back to the real world. Thank you Lorraine for helping us relax and unwind in such a special and delightful home. We will definitely be visiting again.

Response from the owner Thanking you both Sarah & Andy for your lovely review of The Gatsby and once again Happy Anniversary. Playing a part in so many special memories is truly rewarding and very gratifying. I sincerely look forward to welcoming you back to Mountain Whispers, as you are yet to sample Leura Rose or Strawberry Patch. Until then, with warmest regards, Lorraine

“Beautiful, elegant, luxurious accommodation in the perfect location!”

Reviewed 1 Jan 2015

From the moment we arrived at the Gatsby, we were greeted with warmth and care. We were welcomed to a house filled with music, the house was lit and warm and all the food and wine we had pre ordered was awaiting us. Very welcome after a long journey. There were little treats and surprises everywhere. Lorraine misses no detail! Lorraine is friendly, professional and efficient. From booking to departing she made the whole experience easy. She is happy to meet any needs that you may have and she has many useful contacts in her mobile! She even organised a stunning cake for my 50th Birthday! Such attention and care made us all feel very pampered and well cared for. The accommodation was perfect for our family of teenagers. It is very comfortable and tasteful. The bedding is soft, the towels and gowns are thick and fluffy and the rooms are all a good size and ooze Gatsby style and quality. We chose the Gatsby because is was ideally placed for our trips into the Blue Mountains. We were able to walk to a few of the attractions too and the town of Katoomba with it's shops, amenities and restaurants is close by. All very convenient. Thank you Lorraine for making our stay so memorable! I look forward to visiting you again.

Response from the owner Happy New Year and Happy 50th once again Sonyan. Thank you for your lovely review and I'm so pleased you all enjoyed your stay at The Gatsby. Sincerely look forward to welcoming you all back in the not too distant future. Have a great 2015!!!! Warmest regards, Lorraine

Beautiful house, convenient location, perfect place for a group or as a couple. Unique and glamorous theme, lovely decor, kitchen with all the necessities including hot chocolate and marshmallows, great collection of DVDs and books, bathroom with heated tiles and spacious spa, outdoor deck to enjoy the sun. Highly recommend, wish we had stayed longer.

Response from the owner Thank you for your lovely review Maadhavi. By the sounds of your review, you had a lovely 1st Anniversary. Truly look forward to welcoming you back very soon. Sincerest regards, Lorraine

“Great time at The Gatsby”

Reviewed 13 Aug 2014

With fantastic attention to detail, thoughtful touches, and a beautiful property our stay at The Gatsby was everything we'd hoped and more. The location offered perfect access to the commercial district of Katoomba while also being moments away from the mountains themselves.

Response from the owner So pleased you enjoyed your stay at The Gatsby Trish. Thanking you for taking the time to leave your review and I sincerely hope to welcome you back very soon. With warmest regards, Lorraine

“The Gatsby was a romantic, private, well-appointed and warm place and we really enjoyed our stay.”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2014

The Gatsby is a very comfortable, warm and spotlessly clean place with lovely gardens in a quiet location. Lorraine is very organised, prompt in responding to any queries and communicates well. Her instructions for accessing the property and for using all technical stuff were easy to follow (esp important for a technophobe like me). Really loved the heated bathroom floor; came in handy as the weather was freezing during our stay. You wouldn't know this when you're inside the house, though, as it is so well insulated and heated. The house is very well-located for visiting the Echo Point, the 3 Sisters, the Scenic Railway, Leura etc and for getting groceries, visiting restaurants and shopping generally. I loved the interior decorating - great attention to detail. I look forward to checking out Lorraine's other properties.

“I just dont want to leave!”

Reviewed 24 Jun 2014

What can i say, this's already my second time in a month stayed in The Gatsby. I love the Gatsby so much! Its so perfect for 2 people stay like me and my husband! The bed is so comfortable that i always had a very good quality of sleep in every night! The central heating, the central stereo, the heat light in the bath room, the spa bath tub, the garden, the wine, the breads, the fully filled fridge with eggs, bacon,milk and juice. Its just everything so wonderful for you. It makes me love to stay in blue mountains more! I'm seriously should recommend to the blue mountains officials that Lorraine has a big effort of improving the tourist industry in blue mountains! lol The owner Lorraine she is amazing, she arranged everything for us, and provided a comprehensive information of traveling in blue mountains. If not her, i would have missed out the Blue mountains Winter festival! There was a parade and so many fine and fresh made local products from the market, i got myself a few dress and cardigans:) i really high recommend if you are looking for a romantic getaway with fresh air, The Gatsby is the nest choice, only 5 or 10 minutes WALK to The shops, Woollies, bigW, Coles, restaurants and cafes all there. Thank you Lorraine for all the hard effort i'm sure we will see you very soon!

“Perfect weekend away in a charming, immaculate home”

Reviewed 29 Apr 2014

Lorraine provided a truly unforgettable stay for our group of eight. After a day of hiking we returned to a warm fireplace, chocolates and wine, and fluffy,soft bathrobes. The shelves were well stocked with great novels and Dvds, not to mention a fridge full of everything you need for a wholesome breakfast. We loved walking through the gardens to the separate cottage, and gazing up at the milky way in the evenings. The house is in a great location,convenient to get to the shops and close to hiking. We had a terrific time and can't wait to go back!

Response from the owner It was a pleasure reading your review Annie, thank you for your lovely comments and I sincerely look forward to welcoming you all back very soon. Until then, with sincerest regards, Lorraine
