Feel like royalty at the Palais Royal
THE Palais Royale in Katoomba will truly make conference goers feel like royalty.

It’s old world charm makes a perfect setting for any corporate event, whether it is a one-day event, or a multi-day conference.

The Palais Royale started as two separate cottages built by Mr Spear of Summer Hill in 1896.  He had built them for his daughter and named them “Glen Eric” and “Hillside”.

The cottages joined together to become Mount St Marys College, a day and boarding school for young ladies. The college was relocated to a purpose-built building at some point before 1912.

Mr and Mrs A. E. Marsh bought the guesthouse in 1922 and named it the Palais Royale. Mrs Marsh had a new cream façade added to the building’s exterior.

The Palais Royale flourished in the 1920’s along with the tourism industry in the Blue Mountains.

In 2012 the current owners of the Palais Royale, a Sydney family, came to own and fall in love with the Palais Royale.

They are working hard to continue to restore its beauty and glory to keep its heritage for generations to come.

The magnificent ground floor Grand Ballroom serves as an exceptional conference venue for groups of all sizes and comes complete with state-of-the-art facilities and a selection of conference menus that can be tailored to suit all tastes.

Delegates can enjoy sumptuous morning and afternoon tea in the relaxing Royale Lounge, while lunch and dinner are served in Gazelles – the beautiful restaurant on the lower ground floor, where the property’s original restaurant was first installed over 75 years ago.

The ballroom can be configured to meet any requirements and every event has a dedicated conference coordinator works closely with organisers to ensure the event is a success from start to finish.

The conference team can also devise exhilarating team building packages that take in some of the region’s most unique offerings, including an exploration of Jenolan Caves, a visit to the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre, a trip on the Explorer Bus, a chocolate-making experience at Josophan’s Fine Chocolates, a bush-survival course or a day spent abseiling, rock climbing or hiking deep into the mountains.

Classically elegant, all 40 of the guestrooms are designed to encourage absolute relaxation.

Whether guests are travelling solo or have booked in for a romantic getaway, family reunion or corporate gathering, the Palais Royale has the perfect room for guests’ needs.

Guests are welcomed on arrival into the luxurious Royale Lounge, which features original leadlight windows, fine artwork, a cosy fireplace and a relaxing atmosphere.

There are two additional lounge areas that can be used always, and guests are invited to take advantage of the heated spa and sauna during their stay.

A hearty breakfast is served daily from 7.30am to 9.30am in Gazelles Restaurant, on the lower ground floor.

Conference goers can savour the ambience of this beautiful dining room as they enjoy a delicious selection of continental and hot items with juice, tea and coffee before the day’s activities.
