Ivanhoe's Access Statement
We aim to cater for the needs of all who visit the Ivanhoe Guest House, however there are some features of the building that might make access difficult for people with limited mobility.
We have eight (8) guest bedrooms; all of these are only accessible by stairs. There are six (6) bedrooms on the first floor level; the remaining two (2) are on the second floor. Our accommodation is therefore not suitable for wheelchair users or those unable to climb stairs.
The following statement is a summary of our provision. If you have any specific questions please feel free to call us and we will endeavour to help.
We are located in a relatively quiet area of Bridlington approximately 250m from the Spa Theatre & Conference Centre. Bridlington town centre is approximately 12 minutes walk away.
The nearest bus stop is approximately 5 minutes walk away on Hilderthorpe Road where buses from Hull and Scarborough stop. Bridlington Bus Station is located in the town centre and is served by both local and National Coach services. However there is also a regular bus service (EYMS Service 503) that stops almost outside the guest house; please ask for more details and timetable.
The main Railway Station is approximately 10 minutes walk away. There are frequent trains to Hull and Scarborough.
There are a number of local taxi companies. We can supply contact numbers so that you can make a booking if required.
Brochures and menus can be provided in large print if required, but we regret that we do not have facilities to prepare documents in Braille.
