          This is an older hotel which is well heated and really close to Echo Point and therefore a good base for bushwalking, hiking, climbing or sightseeing. Rooms are old style but neat and tidy, well insulated from noise and the beds are pretty comfortable.

          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.

          I assume there is no form of breakfast included in the price of the room I've booked? Just checking !

          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
