The Waterton Park Hotel and Walton Hall welcomes guests with disabilities and has developed the Access Statement to address some of the more common issues that disabled people face.
This Access Statement is intended to provide additional information for all guests who wish to attend or use our facilities. Recognition has been given to include guests with an impairment, which could include mobility, sight, hearing, learning disabilities or any other hidden impairment.
The Waterton Park Hotel and Walton Hall aim to ensure that all employees, guests and others who use or assist in the provision of our services – whether they have a mobility difficulty, a visual impairment, are deaf or hard of hearing, have a speech impairment, have a learning difficulty or mental health disability, use a wheelchair, cane, walking frame or crutches, or have any other disability- are treated equally and according to their needs.
We request that anyone wishing to make an enquiry or booking, inform us directly by telephone or email of any special needs or disability that they may have in order for us to try and meet any personal requirements. We do not provide wheelchairs. All staff are fully trained to assist disabled guests with empathy.
