At The Gannet we aim to be as accessible to as many guests as possible, in order to ensure our facilities and The Gannet experience is inclusive to everyone.


Although The Gannet's topography does not naturally lend itself to creating a totally accessible hotel, we make every effort to welcome all guests and have made investments to meet a range of needs. We welcome the opportunity to hear any suggestions as to other changes that we can make to help meet, or indeed surpass, requirements.

Customer Service

  • We discuss with guests any special needs they may have before their arrival in order to plan any requirements. Then whilst with us, we assign a staff member as a designated ‘contact’ throughout the stay, facilitating anything that might be needed.
  • We provide training to our staff to ensure all our guests feel included – many attend external training e.g. the Welcome All course.
  • We welcome feedback from guests and employees on how we can improve accessibility for everyone.

Accessibility Information Provision and Promotion

  • Information is promoted through a range of communication and marketing tools wherever appropriate.
  • We have installed new signage, ensuring that it is clearly visible at our hotel, on our beach and in our self-catering properties.
