Last week Hubby had an overnight trip to Albury. He was staying at the Atura Hotel in Albury and when I checked it out online I noticed they had their accessible rooms listed on the website. I always get excited to see hotels sharing their accessible accommodation along with their other rooms and I’m particularly impressed when they provide good information. So, I organised for Hubby to view one of the rooms at Atura Albury so I could share it with you. Albury is a good stopover point between Sydney and Melbourne (and vice versa) and I’m often asked about accommodation there so I was particularly pleased that he could squeeze it in on this business trip.
Atura Albury is centrally located in the main street of Albury close to restaurants and shops.
The accessible room is spacious with plenty of room to transfer from a wheelchair to the bed on one side.
The room can be set up as a twin bed or a king bedded room. There is the option of an interconnecting room if travelling with a large family or the lounge can be converted to a sofa bed.
The room has lowered air conditioning controls and light switches.
There’s complimentary tea and a coffee machine with coffee pods in all rooms.
The modern bathroom has grab rails throughout, a toilet with backrest and a shower chair for use in the shower.
There is a wheelchair accessible sink, lever taps and all amenities are at a lower level for access.
Hubby advised there was a good selection of options at the buffet breakfast.
Complimentary Parking is available with two accessible spaces.

Hubby’s stay was a lightening one but he said the staff were friendly and the accommodation was in a great location. Hubby paid for his stay in full.
Thanks to Atura for making an inspection possible despite a nearly full house.

That’s excellent and to see a nice looking accessible bathroom is always a welcome sight . We stayed at a great place in Albury of similar standard last April ( just as I was starting to come up with my blog idea so didn’t record info unfortunately).it seems that as you lose mobility some places assume you don’t appreciate non sterile bathrooms . It’s great to see a popular stop over place so inclusive . Thanks fir sharing .
The Siesta in north Albury also has a great accessible bathroom and wheelchair access. I stayed there with my Mum recently for a few days. It has just been refurbished. They supply a shower chair and there are wider doors and rails.
It’s great to hear. I appreciate you sharing it.

Compliments to Hubby, he takes great pictures!
Really about what I would need to know!
So pleased it was useful and he did well. There’s always a lot of pressure when I want him to get info and take photos. Julie

we stayed at the Atura last week. The bathroom was so small that hubby found it difficult to navigate in his wheelchair and. The bed was so low and soft he could barely get out of it wIth help. Main problem though was the staffs, couldn’T care less attitude when these things were pointed out to them. We were going to go back there on our return trip but canceLled to at the advance motel in wangaratta which is much better in every way.
I’m sorry to hear that Susan but good feedback for others who need to have bigger circulation space in the bathroom.
