Due to our property being a listed building the hotel has no disabled facilities as we cannot have an external or internal lift.
In the restaurant however we do have a portable ramp that we can use on any of the steps and we are able to bring wheelchairs through our kitchen if they are too wide for the ramp and once inside it is all on one level. The disabled toilet is down two steps but we can use the portable ramp for access.
