What Makes Accommodation Family Friendly?

The most important thing for us to remember as a family friendly accommodation is that every family is unique, and they all have different needs that must be met. That’s why our family-friendly motel has a number of different rooms available. If your kids are after their own room, then we have a number of cottages and suites for you to book. We also have options for parents who would prefer to have their kids in the same room as them. Whatever sleeping arrangements you prefer, we know they don’t matter unless you can actually get to sleep. That’s why our motel has a noise cut-off of 10 pm, so everyone can have sweet dreams in plush, comfy beds with no disturbances.


Facilities Available At Colonial House Motel

There are lots of facilities that kids can make use of at Colonial House Motel. We know how much kids love to splash about in the pool. As a family friendly motel, we are happy to give guests access to our saltwater pool, complete with sun loungers in the same area so parents can relax as the kids play. They are also free to explore our sub-tropical garden and let their imaginations run free as they discover the gorgeous plants and animals that have made our motel a permanent home to thrive in.
