Loved the doormat!
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Long Cane, Symbol Cane
The Premier Inn in Lauriston Place is a well placed for getting to most parts of the city. It offers a bright light and welcoming environment.
Transport & Parking
For me, public transport was important as I am visually impaired and do not drive. The hotel is handy for several bus services that pass along the road outside. It’s also easy for taxis to drop off and pick up.
Access in and around the building: Once I was outside the building it was easy to find the front door as it’s a wide automated door. Once you step inside there’s a brightly coloured doormat which I am told has a welcome message on it. The reception area is on the left as you go in and the lifts are directly in front of the main entrance; good for navigation. Access in the accessible bedrooms and bathrooms: The lift and corridors make getting around easy. I found the accessible room to be spacious, bright and light. I prefer a room where there is sufficient lighting to enable me to get a sense of what the layout is. The bathroom was spacious and laid out well. The lighting was very good. Access in the dining area: The dining area was large. Staff help by taking you to your table.
There are accessible toilets by the bar as well as standard toilet facilities.
On arrival staff greeted me and were helpful and friendly.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
The Premier Inn was good as they follow a set style and standard so it makes it easier for me as a visually impaired person to familiarise myself with the environment.
