Almost the entire building is barrier free and there are elevators to reach the hotel rooms. There are disabled toilets in the hotel restaurant, the entertainment centre as well as in the swim paradise.
Preston Palace has four disabled hotel rooms (Classic type). These rooms have wide doors (95 cm) to give easy access to wheelchairs. The shower is spacious without barriers or shower tray. The toilet is fitted with support bars. A support rail is fitted along the shower wall and there is a plastic chair. The sink is lowered so that you can reach it from your wheelchair and you can tilt the mirror. Lights are switched on and off automatically. Beds are 60 cm high. On request, we can provide a toilet raiser and bars in the bathroom. You have to make your own arrangements if you need any other aids or nursing. When making a booking, you must indicate that you would like a disabled room. A disabled room can only be booked by telephone (+31 (0)546-542121).
The new hotel restaurant has wide passageways between de tables and around the buffet area, allowing you to move easily around the entire restaurant. The restaurant also has a disabled toilet. If you prefer to have a table close to the buffet, please ask reception to reserve a table.
The Coffee Corner and Preston Hall are barrier free. The entertainment centre has tiled pathways, with a small step to the seating areas and game facilities, such as the snooker and pool tables. These facilities are easy to access. There is a small step to reach the miniature golf area, and the miniature golf courses have limited space for disabled guests. The bowling alley is situated in an old mine shaft, and you need to climb three steps to reach it. Inside the bowling alley, there is sufficient space for wheelchairs to manoeuvre. The bowling lanes are wheelchair accessible and we also offer wheelchair adaptive equipment to make bowling even easier.
In the indoor fairground, the bumper cars are located on the first floor. This attraction can only be reached by stairs. The other attractions, such as the Octopus and Energy Storm, are on the ground floor, but there is a small step up to the entrance.
The subtropical swim paradise can be accessed via wide entrance of the swimming pool reception. Here, there is a disable toilet with wheelchair accessible changing facility, too. The pool has wide, easy-access steps with a railing. The whirlpools, sauna and steam bath have a step to enter.
