  • Are there wheel chair access to the rooms.

    Good Afternoon Although we have a lift which will take you to each floor, the lift is small. So if you are able to fold wheelchair to fit. There is also a small step at the entrance to hotel as well as 2 small steps going to the lift and 7 steps to the breakfast room. So it just depends on mobility. Hope this is helpful to you. yours kindly Kerry
