Hello Greyabbey, Thank you for your enquiry. We do have a guest laundry here on site at 58 on Cron Motel. It operates on $2 coins with $4 for a wash and $2 for 20 minutes in the dryer. It is open from 4pm until 8:30pm however there is a 24hr laundromat located not far from us (less that a minutes walk) if you need to do laundry outside of these hours. Washing powder and change is available from reception. I hope this helps.
