Accessibility Statement

Kerrington house was a Victorian Gentleman’s Residence. Although the buildings age and design may limit our offer hotel-wide to everyone, we are committed to giving you a warm welcome and quality accommodation. Here are the service elements that you can access at Kerrington House.

Disability Suite

Please note that our disability suite can not be booked on line. To book, please call us on 01297 35333 or email us.

The Guest Accommodation now boasts a dedicated room ‘accessible to all’ called the Disability Suite. It is situated to the back of the house, a direct drive in from the road with designated parking to the ramped access via channel ramps (unsuitable for Low ground clearance wheelchairs). Wheelchair width is 90cm, with various slopes.

The Disability Suite is a ground floor unit that has the usual high quality expected of a 5* bed and breakfast and has been designed for both the able bodied and the physically challenged. It is located in a quiet corner of the hotel grounds with designated car parking and ramps situated 50 feet from the hotel with lighting all the way and wheelchair access to the hotel, lounge and breakfast room via the rear entrance. This room has been specifically designed as you can see in the pictures but as needs vary we can remove furniture if necessary. Please advise us of any concerns or specific requests on booking. Special diets can be catered for and the Disability Suire has table and chairs for room service with prior notification.

If the fire alarms go off you will be immediately assisted as it is possible that you may be advised to stay in your bedroom. Please acquaint yourselves with the facilities and fire exits.
