ACCESSIBILITY

Accommodation & Activities

Both our hotels have step free access, multiple lifts are found in each reception area. Both the hotels have accessible public toilet facilities. The staff are always available at reception should you have any queries or concerns.

Assistance and Guide Dogs - Assistance/guide dogs are welcome in the accommodation but please tell us in advance so we can allocate the most appropriate room for you. Upon arrival, please advise Reception of any additional requirements and they will endeavour to accommodate these where possible.

Wheelchair Hire - Wheelchair hire is available from Lodge Gate and is charged at £10 per day, plus a £50 fully refundable pre-authorisation on a credit or debit card. Registered disabled guests with documented proof may hire a wheelchair free of charge, but a £50 pre-authorisation will still apply - please speak to a member of staff on your visit for more information.

Wheelchairs are subject to availability so we would suggest that guests who need a wheelchair to travel around the Theme Park bring their own for ease and certainty. Please note, due to the very hilly nature of our site, this can make powered buggies very unstable. Please take extra care when using them and speak to a staff member in Guest Help and Information for further information.

Deaf/Hearing-impaired guests - Portable induction loops which can be used around the accommodation to assist you further are available at our hotel Receptions. These will be activated in the event of fire alarm activation or other emergency requiring guest evacuation of the hotel.

Special dietary requirements - The Hotel restaurants serve a wide range of top-quality cuisine to suit all palates and menus can be found on-line. Please inform us when booking your stay at the hotels of any special dietary requirements so that we can make sure that we can provide for your specific needs

Assistance in the event of an emergency - Upon arrival at the accommodation, please make Reception aware of any additional assistance that you may require in the rare event of an emergency at any time throughout your stay. They will ensure that these needs are met in the event of an emergency.
