The fire alarm is a high pitched siren with many of the detectors having flashing lights.
Deafguards linked to the fire alarm system are available on request for those guests with impaired hearing. Reception will also make a note of your room number so we can add this to our evacuation procedure.
Emergency evacuation plans are available in each room in the information pack. Please ensure you make yourself familiar with these for your own safety.
For those with mobility issues please inform reception on arrival who will make a note, so we can add this to our evacuation procedure.
All information such as menus, bedroom information and tariffs can be printed in larger fonts if so required. Small dogs are welcome in the hotel but will need to be booked in at the booking office prior to arrival.
