Good but could be better
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Wheelchair, Powerchair, Mobility Scooter
A really lovely boutique B&B We stayed in Dolphin Bay room. Nice wide access to room and bathroom. Level access and lift. The reason for 3 stars is that without much effort it would tick all the boxes for disabled people
Transport & Parking
There is a council run car park next to Marine House. One disabled space. The owner has an agreement with the council that residents can use the car park free of charge. The disabled space us marked, wide and paved. The rest of the car park is gravel - which might prove a challenge for wheelchairs and some scooters. From the car park to the hotel entrance is maybe 50m There is double yellow lines outside the hotel. So on with a blue badge?
Access to the building is level. The lift is in a small vestibule off the entrance hall. (All rooms are on first floor.) The lift would accomdate a wheelchair. But it is quite tight to turn into lift lobby from entrance hall. The owner was very Happy for me to perk my scooter in the lift lobby to charge. But as mentioned the turn was tight. Upstairs nice wide, well lit, clutter free, corridor. Our room was spacious. I think there'd have been room for a wheelchair. Bathroom had a level shower cubicle. But this was my main niggle. The bathroom floor was tiled and the shower tray was fibre glass. Both slippery when wet. A shower mat in the shower woukd have made a difference. Also a grasp rail. I did mention to the owner and he seemed receptive.
See comments about bathroom. The toilet had no disabled grab rails.
Very helpful and friendly
Anything else you wish to tell us?
If like me you are ambulant disabled it woukd work well. And maybe if you're a wheelchair user too. Perhaps bring a shower seat with you?
