By the time we reached Mt Victory at the top of the Blue Mountains it was dark, cold and raining but we were greeted by the warm open fireplaces of the Majestic Imperial Hotel. http://www.hotelimperial.com.au/
This Imperial is several leaps up from Bingara’s in terms of a grand period piece. We went for the Imperial Suite normally chosen by brides, purely for the experience and because the prices were so reasonable that we could(kids on a trundle bed). Spa was brilliant after a long drive.
A lot of this trip is hit and run, the idea is to get the best snapshot of the variability that the country has to offer, and locate the most promising areas for more thorough exploration at a later date. Capturing the essence of Australia essentially.
