Holiday Inn, Bristol, Filton

I would recommend Holiday Inn at Bristol Filton for people with restricted mobility who can manage a shower over bath washing facility. There are 4 accessible rooms available which are very spacious, allowing plenty of room for manoeuvrability in a chair and pull cord alarms are by the bed, bath and toilet. Slightly disappointing were the bathroom facilities; a bath with shower over and lots of grab rails. I managed with this but a wheel in shower would be ideal, certainly safer! The disabled parking spaces are close to the entrance and display a phone number to request assistance, if needed, into the hotel. (What fantastic attention to detail - brilliant if travelling alone!) The approach to the hotel entrance is sloped and doors are automatic, again, good for independent travelling. Walkways are wide and floors are polished, perfect wheelchair terrain! Staff seemed really well briefed about the right amount of assistance to offer (which can be so difficult to get right) For example, a waitress asked if I would like to remain in my chair for dinner or transfer to the dining chair. Upon checking In, I needed to complete a risk assessment form in case of fire etc.. to check whether I could leave independently or would need further assistance from staff.
Accessibility aside, the hotel was very well appointed, the restaurants served great food (Loved the Sampans oriental food) and staff were extremely helpful and friendly. It also looked great for children and features a large play area in its grounds.
The only accessibility difficulty I had was returning to my room late one evening when all the fire doors in the corridors had been closed and I needed to seek assistance. Overall, this hotel is really trying to get it right, a wheel-in shower is really a must for wheelchair users, but the level of service was great and I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Not so accessible beach!

Westward Ho! beach in North Devon is listed as having disabled access on the list of North Devon beaches but it hasn't, or at least we couldn't find it! There was a concrete runway down to the sand but access was blocked by giant boulders and rocks at beach level.
We therefore had a wasted journey and left with two very disappointed children who could see the sand but with one parent in a wheelcahir, we couldn't get them on to it.

St. Bedes Catholic Church

St. Bedes is a fully accessible Catholic Church. There are approx ten disabled parking bays directly outside the entrance. Entrance to the church is through wide automatic doors and the church itself is spacious with wide isles, making buggy / wheelchair use easy. One disabled toilet available. A big thumbs up for accessiblitiy
