Overall: Basic but good. Nappy change only.
Good Points: Clean wall mounted fold out baby change table. Nappy bins. Disposable mats available in the change table. Large doorway. Door locks from the inside. Assistance rails beside the toilet.
Bad Points: Grubby table (use the complimentary table liners). Toilet paper unit is quite low.
Here’s another fast food outlet review! All fast food restaurants aren’t equal, and that’s not just in regard to food. When it comes to baby change facilities, there are massive differences in quality among the companies (and also individual franchises within companies). Hungry Jacks Penrith has one of the better setups we’ve seen. Actually, HJs overall tends to be the leader in terms of quality in baby change facilities.
This store has a good setup. The baby change table is in the disabled bathroom, with a doorway big enough to fit a larger pram. The door also locks from the inside so you can change your baby in privacy.
The change table is a bit grubby, but the good thing is there is a fully stocked compartment of disposable change mats. Yay!!!!! You could count on one hand the number of places we’ve found that actually do have change mats in this compartment. This is a good thing 🙂
To the left of the change table, against the wall, are the nappy disposal bins. There’s two of them, and both are within easy reach of the change table.
The toilet has assistance rails, which are very useful for little ones who are learning to use the toilet. The toilet paper unit, however, is a bit low considering the height of the toilet. It’d be great if it was just a little bit higher.
It’s great to find a fast food store that has bathrooms which are easy to get a pram into, without needing to do a 3 point turn. The play area at this store is great fun, and we’ll definitely be putting it on the preferred pit-stop list when heading out that way again.
The next time you’re travelling through Penrith, stop in and check it out for yourself. Let us know what you think.
