  • I am partially disabled with a broken hip, very difficult to climb stairs. Is the Twin Room on the ground floor. ???? Thanks. Doug Foster.

    Dear Doug, Please note there are 25 steps to ascend from the car park to the entrance of Waratah On York. One of the Twin rooms is on the ground floor though. We would love to accommodate you but understand the issue of stairs may not suite you.
