Ideas of who to target
We want to see more Accessible Hotels across the country. We have listed a few ideas below of places to focus on for installing more Accessible Hotel rooms. You can download our template letter here, and add in your own thoughts on the matter. Any parts of the letter that you need to add or change are in red.
City Centre Hotels
Often used for business or city breaks, these hotels are missing out by not catering to the needs of disabled people. Perhaps find out who the facilities manager is, or even the general manager.
City hotels are well worth contacting, as many guests pass through their doors each week. There's bound to be plenty of disabled people who need accessible rooms for the night.
These are invaluable when driving long distances. But if there are substandard access facilities in the hotel, what is the alternative? To keep driving when tired? We suggest you contact the manager.
Roadside hotels need accessible rooms for travellers with disabilities. No one should have to drive tired!
Hotels/B&Bs in Tourist Destinations
Disabled people have the same right to a nice getaway just as much as anyone else does, so the places they pay to stay in should be able to give them the comfort and safety that they need when moving around the room. It might be best to find out who runs the B&B/Hotel and write to them.
Everyone deserves and needs a holiday, but at the moment there aren't enough destinations for disabled people to visit. The reason? There aren't enough accessible hotel and bed and breakfast rooms with patient hoists and other equipment.
If you have trouble finding the right person and address to write to, please get in touch with us, we might be able to give you a hand. Don’t forget to let us know how your campaigning is going!
