The size of the room allows for easy wheelchair circulation with room on both sides of the bed for transferring.
The kitchenette is well equipped with microwave, kettle, toaster, crockery, cutlery, mini-bar and sink with a lever tap. They’ve thought of everything with space under the sink making it wheelchair accessible.
The bathroom is spacious with a roll-in shower with lever taps, a bench seat and grab rail.
The height adjustable shower head, if left in a high position, can be accessed by pulling it down with a pull lever on the side.
Grab rails surround the toilet and there’s a full length mirror.
All features in the bathroom are lowered. The accessible sink even has room on the side of the bench for toiletries (something many of our readers have mentioned is missing from many accessible bathrooms).
An emergency call button is located beside the bed and the wardrobe is fitted with a bar which lowers the clothes railing if needed.
The accessible room was certainly a winner but combined with the interconnecting room, it’s a fabulous option for a family or for friends travelling together.
Hastings Street is accessible directly from the hotel via a ramp which puts guests in the heart of Noosa.
Noosa Life Saving Club has a beach wheelchair available to borrow.
