Quest Joondalup also features designated wheelchair access rooms that have wider doors and lower kitchen and bathroom benches, as well as two lifts and wide hallways.

Property manager Sheree Blum said this was an important inclusion given the hotel’s close proximity to Joondalup Health Campus.

While two conferences have already been booked at the hotel for this week, Ms Blum said it was not just corporate visitors who would benefit from the accommodation.
