On arrival at Goldstone
We have designated disabled car parking just to the right hand side of the front door.
Entrance to the hotel is by way of two single steps for which we have mobile ramps available. We will have these in place if you let us know but they are quickly put in place by our reception staff as needed.
We are happy to help with luggage to and from your car and to and from your bedroom.
Goldstone has wooden floors and carpet rugs etc. there is one step through the building which is an original feature but we have ramps. Check in is informal and you will be assisted as required for the completion of registration cards etc.
Our corridors are well lit – with a mix of carpet and oak floors. Our reception rooms are similar and the doors are generally held open by hooks or magnetic catches.
Our disabled lavatory is situated by the front door and is on the same level as reception but up one step (with ramps available) from the dining room and orangery.
Dining Room and Orangeries
There is ample moveable seating with space for wheelchairs to navigate. Armchairs are available. There is background music in the bar area. Full waiter service for all drinks and meals.
Two rooms are located on the ground floor with one step within the building (Ramp available) and ramped to the bedrooms. Our bathrooms are reasonably large with no lip to the shower – They are not specifically adapted but a shower stool is available. The Rose Garden (Room 12) has a low double bed and Cheswardine (Room 14) has an ancient four poster bed.
All other rooms are on the first floor but there isn’t a lift.
The garden is large with varied surfaces including gravel and grass and there is a slope. However, there are no steps to the terrace and it is ramped to the main garden where it is possible to go round the flower garden. The kitchen garden is more sloped but there are no steps. It is possible to arrange for our staff to assist in pushing wheelchairs but it would be helpful if this is arranged prior to your visit.
Guide dogs are welcome
There are small fridges in all bedrooms
Fire Directions and Alarms
The fire alarm is a high pitched and continuous sounder. The fire drill for evacuation checks all rooms but if you have any reason that you may not hear this please inform us at check in so that we can check your room in case of a fire.
