Craig I can confirm we would be able to reserve a disable parking space at the front of the hotel, and we have two rooms directly located on the main house ground floor, just around the corner from the windermere restaurant offering service for breakfast and dinner. Additional accommodation is available within the original house and accessed via lift. The secondary restaurant Blue Smoke is also accessible via ground floor, and the atrium, health club are access via lift. Please do not hesitate in calling the hotel direct and we will have no problem in sorting every thing out for you. Call on 015394 33338

Hello, There is access from the main car park to the hotel reception via lifts. Yet for better accessibility it is advised to do drop-off at the front of the hotel. We have some ground level rooms, and many that are accessible via lifts. The distance between the reception and rooms depends of the room as I mentioned they can be lift accessible, it is between thirty to eighty meters. Please note that this depends on availability. Some of our rooms have walk in showers only, some have shower over bath options. I hope this helps, do not hesitate to contact the hotel for any other inquiries. Kind Regards, Alar Allik

"Lake views are great but these are adjacent to the main road, so noisier after 6am."
