Note for clients with a mobility impairment: there are only two small steps to negotiate at the hotel entrance and a ramp available. The hotel has seven ground floor rooms although none of these has a sea view. Each of the upper bedroom floors is divided into two levels and it is necessary to ensure mobility impaired clients are allocated rooms on the side of the hotel which can be directly accessed from the lift. Please ensure you submit a Special Needs form if you have a mobility impairment.
