Access Report

Introduction

We are located on the corner of Salisbury Street and the main A65 into Skipton. The properties in the area are predominantly stone constructed Victorian houses.

The Guest'otel is only approximately 8 minutes' walk to the town centre. Here you will find local amenities, attractions, a traditional market 4 days a week, shops, restaurants and public houses.

Skipton's bus and train stations are approximately 12 minutes' walk away. The nearest bus stop is about 50 metres away.

There are 5 radar toilets in Skipton, located at the Town Hall, train station, bus station and both the High Street and Coach Street car parks. These car parks are "Pay and Display".

We can be contacted by telephone on 01756 700640 or by email at skiptonpark@btconnect.com

Pre-Arrival

We request that guests inform us of any special needs that they have when making an enquiry or a booking.

Please advise us of your anticipated arrival time so that we can be available to welcome you and give assistance where necessary with your luggage. To ensure your accommodation is ready we recommend that guests check-in after 2pm, however it is possible to arrange earlier check-in times if required.

There are several local taxi firms and we would be more than happy to arrange and pre-book them for you if required.

Arrival and Car Parking Facilities

There is free on-street parking available and there are also two car parking spaces down the side of the property. It is important if using these spaces that your car is parked as close to the property as possible to allow access to the backs of adjacent houses.

We have a private car parking space at the rear of the property that could be made available by arrangement where special personal circumstances require.

The road down the side of the property is cobbled and the path at the front is tarmac with a standard drop down kerb. There are two steps to the front door separated by a level flagged pathway. The two steps measure 12cm and 20cm. We also have a rear entrance with just one step into the Guest'Otel measuring 27cm.

We have a front door bell to make us aware of our guests' arrival.

The entrance/reception area has a double seater settee.

Guest Accommodation and Public Areas

We have six letting bedrooms. Three of these are standard double rooms, two rooms have a king-size bed and the other bedroom is a family room consisting of a double, single and put-me-up bed if required. With having a double and single bed, the family room can also be used as a twin.

All our rooms offer:

  • Shower en-suites containing sink and toilet
  • Hospitality trays
  • Remote controlled TV with Freesat HD
  • Table and chairs
  • Wardrobes and bedside cabinets
  • Blankets
  • Hairdryers
  • Fitted controllable electric heaters
  • Alarm clocks

Other facilities are also available on request:

  • Bath sheets
  • Iron and ironing board
  • Trouser press

There are 2 side-hung consecutive fire doors leading to each bedroom giving an entrance width of 67cm.

The bedrooms are located as follows:

  • 1 ground floor (double room)
  • 3 first floor (2 double rooms and 1 with king sized bed)
  • 2 top floor attic rooms (1 double room with king sized bed, and 1 family room)

The stairs to the attic rooms have 14 steps and are fairly steep.

The ground floor room is on the same level as the entrance/reception area and the breakfast room. This makes the room ideal for guests who find stairs a problem or require a walking stick or small zimmer frame. Although this is the case, this room is our smallest and is very restricted. The passage ways are also narrow in places which makes it unsuitable for guests totally dependent on a wheelchair.
