What can hotels do for #AccessDay?

Who doesn’t love a weekend away in a lovely hotel? We certainly do! Too often, hotels have incredible facilities for disabled guests that are not publicised when they should be celebrated! With Disabled Access Day 2017 heading our way in March, we want to ensure that this positivity strikes hard and hotels have all the hints and tips they need to prepare for #AccessDay.

Disabled Access Day 2017 and our Access Surveys: Why are they so important?

Disabled Access Day 2017 and our Access Surveys: Why are they so important?

2016, Access Survey

According to our Access Survey that we run annually with Euan’s Guide, more than 50% of people who answered the survey in 2016 claimed that a lack of accessibility information, both on and offline, prevented them from venturing out and trying new venues, eateries or accommodations, simply because they didn’t know what they might find when they got there, if they were even able to get through the front door! This is one of the huge problems that are facing disabled people today, and yet it’s so ridiculously simple to address!
