Holiday Inn Express in Hull City Centre

I hadn’t planned on writing a review of the Holiday Inn Express in Hull city centre. Not because it doesn’t deserve one, but because we only stayed one night and we spent hardly any time in the hotel. But, as you know, I like to promote good disabled...

3 Budget Hotels with Accessible Rooms

When it comes to booking an accessible hotel room, it’s a lottery. A lottery, because, what’s accessible to one person may not be accessible to another. Then, when you throw the price into the equation, the lottery can get silly! We all know travelling is expensive,...

Disabled Access Day in Dartmoor 2016
