2017 Accommodation Update
There is a large block of rooms being held exclusively for transFormal guests.
The Carington is not currently accepting reservations from the general public for that weekend.
If you wish to stay in the Carrington Hotel at TransFormal then you can phone reservations on (02) 4782 1111 to check availability. You can tentatively make a reservation for a room (except the Traditional Wing) directly with the hotel. But the reservation must be confirmed by purchasing a Transformal ticket and filling out the event booking form. Any advance reservations that are not supported by a ticket sale may be cancelled by the hotel.
Katoomba hotels are busy year-round at the weekend and bargains can be hard to find.
But TransFormal has special arrangements with the Carrington Hotel to enhance your weekend away.
We also have some options for those traveling on a budget. Take a look at our suggestions below.
- Transformal Central
The best place at the best price.
Stay in The Carrington Hotel in the centre of all the weekend's activity in the classic traditional wing.
The great price even includes breakfast!
Traditional Rooms can only be reserved together with a ticket to the Transformal Weekend. They cannot be reserved in advance of tickets going on sale.
- Colonial Rooms @ The Carrington Hotel
A step up comfort from the traditional wing, Each room has its own en-suite.
And breakfast is included.
- Premier Rooms @ The Carrington Hotel
Many Transformal guests go straight to the Premier Rooms - in particular the balcony rooms overlooking the front entrance.
If you are looking for a bit of luxury over the weekend have a look at the Premier Rooms
- The Metropole
Another period hotel, just round the corner from The Carrington offers rooms at a very competitive price.
If you are looking for a budget option and Transformal Central is fully sold then have a look at The Metropole.
The Ultra-trail marathon is being held on the same weekend as TransFormal this year - and so budget accommodation in town will be reserved quickly. The Metropole is a popular hotel for runners - so make your reservation as soon as possible.
