Originally built in 1903 and named after Queen Alexandra (the consort of King Edward VII), today The Alexandra operates as the only licenced hotel in Leura. Sitting just east of Katoomba street on the edge of the world-heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park, The Alexandra Hotel serves as a perfect base for both locals and travellers keen to discover the dramatic landscapes for which the region is renowned.
Palatial. Opulent. Grand. Much like the regal queen that inspired its name, The Alexandra Hotel offers intrepid explorers an experience fit for royalty. Its design was originally intended as an adaptation of the Queen Anne style with a 26-metre front balcony offering excellent views, 22 bedrooms with electric service bells, three bathrooms offering hot water, a large dining room, smoking room, recreation room, drawing room, fine interior arches and an astounding staircase made of kauri pine.
Fusing traditional Edwardian charm and the sophisticated touches of local architect F.C. Goyder, with all the luxurious finishes of a modern destination hotel, The Alex is the perfect combination of classic vintage elegance with contemporary comforts.
