Bike Friendly Accommodation

Post  Chook on Fri 13 Mar 2015, 6:42 pm

After staying at a few places that really looked after us (or more so, our bikes) on the Parkes trip I thought I’d start a place for us to list accommodation that looks after bikes and their  riders.
I know a few others had some really good places to stay at on the way to Parkes as well, I'm sure there are hundreds of great places we can share.

2WA, maybe you could make this a sticky so it's easy to find for anyone heading away for a few days?

Great idea Chook, maybe we should add dollar signs like some restaurant reviews to show how relatively expensive they are, ie $ is cheap $$$ expensive.

The Bendemeer Hotel.  Top of the Oxley Hwy.  You get a "stable"  to house your bike in for the night. Don't worry. Theres no nags around and the floors are concrete.

I was going to PM you asking for that again, thank's for that.

Is there anyway of splitting it into sub topics for each state? It might make it easier to keep track if that is possible

Its probably easier and better to have an accommodation sticky under each states ride event forum.
