This hotel advertises as being wheelchair accessible. It even states that it has thge ultimate requirement of a roll in shower.
As a precaution, before arriving, we even phoned to confirm that the room would be suitable and that we would be arriving late.
So, we arrived as planned after 1am but no sign of any staff. We rang the doorbell several times but no response...We then spotted a number on the desk which we rang. After a total of 20 mins a staff member appeared who let us in.
The room did have a roll in shower but a glass screen had been installed which made it inaccessible coupled with no shower chair disqualified the room completely.
The next day we were moved to another room which had a shower chair which was too low and another glass screen making access to the shower impossible.
Also, the disabled parking spot outside was paved with rough pavers making it very difficult to navigate.
In summary, this venue is simply not wheelchair compliant...avoid.
