    There is an accessible room at the back of the hotel with its own door out to the car park and it's own accessible wet room. I do not work for the hotel but I have stayed in this room.

    If you have booked a room only rate, then yes you are able to pay for breakfast during your stay. You do not need to book, our waitress will charge your room bill each morning accordingly.
