Stayed over with daughter and grandson. Clean and comfortable, great wifi, plenty of room. Owner provided maps and advice on best times for local activities - very useful! Close enough to attractions to be convenient, but far enough away to be quiet.

Hi, I agree with one of the previous answers. I would give the motel a call. Possibly they have a wheelchair friendly room on the premises. The rooms we had were upstairs and no unfortunately not suitable.

No breakfast included but can pay extra for the owners to cook breakfast. If you have a family it is better to borrow plates and utensils from owner, use the microwave, buy food in local Coles
