          We are booked in via super breaks for 14-15 Feb, my wife is disabled, and personally spoke with super breaks at time of booking that we get a suitable room. Can you check that we have been allocated a room for a wheelchair user? Explanation of type of room and where located in the hotel And let me have the direct tel number of the Wessex plz. Do we have to print off all the paperwork for check in, in this day and age we us our phone screens as proof of reference details. Thanks looking forward to our stay and a reply.

          The various websites which feature this hotel say that there are spa facilities with treatments done by an outside company called 'the only was is wessex'. however their website no longer works. do they still provide treatments and if so how can I see what treatments they provide before I check in?
