    Room was very good , clean and well managed everything with coffee/tea, cookies with mini fridge. I am surprised when they offer us morning break fast on my time. Internet is free with friendly staff. I love to visit again. Thanks for making good experience.

    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
