The Gillis Centre is committed to being accessible to everyone and, although this is a listed building because of its historical significance, we have made several modifications to improve accessibility for guests with a mobility impairment.


- the bedrooms are on the first and second floors, but there is a lift. If you wish, we can book a room for you near the lift. The en-suite shower rooms have a step-in shower.

- there is one bedroom which is wheelchair-accessible, with assistance.

This bedroom has two beds and an en-suite accessible shower room.

Full details are given below.

- there is a separate, ramped entrance, with a bell so that our staff can come to take your luggage

- there is designated car-parking spaces close to this entrance. The car park is tarmac.
