    Perfect location for sightseers, very clean. The manager is very helpful and quite charismatic. All facilities excellent, but not self- catering (it's a motel). The best restaurants within walking distance, as is the town centre. Highly recommended for mountain lovers. Expensive but punctual breakfasts.

    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.

    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
