Fire Evacuation

The hotel’s fire evacuation policy is that on arrival our disabled guests are asked if they require any help leaving the hotel. All our guests are instructed to leave the building by the nearest fire exit and make their way to the assembly point at the top of car park A. In addition, there are red signs which can be hung on the outside of the bedroom door requesting assistance in case of emergency.  These signs will alert staff to the guests requirement to be helped from the hotel.

Please make yourself aware of the routes and procedures (the details are on the inside of your bedroom door.)

The fire alarm is a continuous siren.

Assistance Dogs

A recognised assistance dog is one that has been specifically trained to assist a disabled person and has been qualified by one of the charitable organisations as members of ‘Assistance Dogs UK’.

Assistance dogs are welcome in the Lodge. There is no surcharge for maintenance or cleaning fee for customers with an assistance dog.

If you require any assistance during your stay please dial ‘0’ from your bedroom phone for the hotel reception or if on your mobile please call 0113 2033893.

Staff assistance is available 24 hours a day.
