The first UK all-inclusive hotel?
A touch of class!
As a company we are committed to searching for and reviewing new and exciting projects throughout the UK that aim to bridge the gap between accessibility and inclusiveness with todayâ€™s society.
The St Annes Hotel, Lancashire has certainly done its homework. The person behind this vision is Clare Winbolt. Clare has liaised with many organisations including the DRC (Disability Rights Commission), RNID & RNIB to understand what is actually required to provide an inclusive hotel rather than making any assumptions.
I can honestly say, to date, this is a one off hotel! Imagine my surprise when I opened the hotel brochure and read statements like:
â€śNo matter what your disability, we are here to
help you relax and unwind in one of the most
exclusive hotels in Britainâ€ť
â€śAll bedrooms are fully accessible for wheelchair
users and all have adapted deluxe en-suite facilitiesâ€ť
The hotel ethos is committed to ensuring its customers have a relaxing and stress free break.
Many people have concerns about hotels that call themselves accessible or which are run by charitable organisations. Peopleâ€™s experience to date has been of clinical, institutionalised and rest home like accommodation.
You need have no such concerns about this hotel. It has a chic feel; words like warm, designer, innovative, fun and relaxing come into your mind. This is the new genre in hotel service and care. People of all levels of ability simply want inclusiveness and it seems, finally, theyâ€™re about to receive their wish.
For those clients requiring respite care Clare and the team have a list of local registered respite care agencies in the area and are able to contract their services in on your behalf enabling everyone to have a well deserved and enjoyable break.
