wheelchair

by sylviarandall Online Now Aug 11, 2007 at 12:42 AM

I am coming to the Burstin Hotel in September but unfortunately I have to go into hospital in 3 days time for a knee replacement. As I have been so looking forward to my short holiday I would like to know if there is anywhere where I could hire an electric wheelchair. I am coming with Mr Roy Lewis on Skills coach
and could I please request a low floor.
Looking foreward to your reply

    wheelchairusers.org.uk/conte... (Shopmobility) should be able to sort you out with a wheelchair, but do contact them quickly to make a booking.

    You will need to contact the coach/tour operator directly about coach access.

    Good advice from above.
    Quite a few years ago we were snowed in in the Burstin and they were very accommodating, I hope they'll be just as helpful for you.
