    Very quiet town, quiet street. But near the three sisters and the science world. Small but comfort room. Clean, warm and suffcient for family vacation. A little far from town centre, where a Chinese restaurant located.

    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
