UK best provide for the disabled and elderly?
In the UK, there are thousands of hotels and holiday resorts all around the country. However, do they provide for their disabled and elderly guests? In this article we will look at a few places that I have visited recently, that provide good service for those with reduced mobility.
The first place I went to was a small hotel in Blackpool. The hotel is called the Bellevue Hotel and is located on the seafront. Upon arriving there I was surprised because I could see that they did have a lift to get up to their rooms. The receptionist asked if I would like them to take all of my luggage up to my room for me, but I think it’s always best if I do it myself. The guest rooms were a good size and had a good bathroom with a walk-in shower, instead of one where you have to sit down in the bathtub. It also had everything I needed such as a small bedside table, lamp and plenty of towels for me to use.
Unfortunately, there was not enough room for me to have a bath, but I could always come back later and use it. The view from my room was lovely as well. I had a sea view and I could lookout to see the sun going down in the afternoon until night time.
The hotel also provided entertainment for guests such as singers that would perform every day which was very pleasant. I particularly enjoyed the karaoke nights they had, where everyone would have a good sing-song.
The next hotel I went to was in Windsor, it’s called The Townhouse Hotel. When checking in the receptionist asked me how many bags I had and if any of them were too heavy for me to lift? The front is pleasant. I particularly enjoyed the karaoke nights they had, where everyone would have a good sing-song.
The next hotel I went to was in Windsor, it’s called The Townhouse Hotel. When checking in at the receptionist asked me how many bags I had and if any of them were too heavy for me to lift? The front desk staff were very friendly and showed me straight up to my room because it was on the first floor. The guest room was quite small but had everything I needed such as a television, a kettle and tea and coffee making facilities. There was also a dressing table with a mirror to make myself look nice before going out for dinner. But unfortunately, there was not much storage space for me.
The Townhouse Hotel also offered left luggage services which were very useful, because I wanted to take my time and enjoy the town. The hotel is close to the shops but not too close that it would get loud at night time. Once again, the bathroom was a good size with a walk-in shower and I could use the hairdryer which was very handy. In addition, they offer breakfast included in your room rate at an extra cost. But it seemed quite popular amongst other guests because there were always busy. The hotel also offers many facilities such as a gym and a bar.
The next place I went to was in Cambridge, it’s called The Banbury Hotel which is located just out of the town centre. The hotel had a nice country feel about it and you could tell that they catered for people with reduced mobility well because there was a ramp going up to the door at the entrance.
