Great little motel. Old but newish inside rooms. Cleanest I’ve stayed in. Real comfy beds also. Quiet and walkable distance to Echo Point and Three Sisters. Chocolate shop across road, great atmosphere.

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
