THE GORDON GUEST HOUSE
Our home was built in 1868 long before accessibility was even considered. All of our bedrooms, reception and dining room are on upper floors. We therefore regret that it is not suitable for wheelchair users and may prove difficult for some guests with limited mobility. Some of our rooms have sloping ceilings which may affect taller guests.
Exterior – there are two stone steps to reach the front door and bottom landing. Initial entry is by an audio door intercom system whereby the front door will be unlocked remotely. Thereafter each guest will have a key to open this door.
Interior – all internal floors and stairs are fully carpeted except en suite bathrooms which have waterproof vinyl flooring.
After the front door the bottom landing leads to the main stairwell. 24 stairs measuring 115cm wide by 15cm high. A wooden bannister runs the full length on the left hand side as you ascend. The stairs have two curved sections within them.
At the top of the main stairwell are the main hall, reception, the dining room and guest room 1.
Thereafter is a further upper staircase consisting of 21 stairs measuring 98cm wide by 17cm high (last 9 stairs are 15cm high) with a wooden bannister on the right hand side as you ascend. This staircase is straight with a landing provided where the stairs change direction.
The upper staircase provides access to guest rooms 2 to 5.
