The TLH Derwent Hotel is the largest of the TLH hotels with 174 bedrooms.
The main entrance to the hotel has 12 steps from street level to ground floor. There is a street-level entrance with two lifts located nearby. Given the age of the building the lifts are fairly compact but will take a wheelchair.
The access door has an intercom that alerts reception staff as the street level entrance may be locked on occasions for security reasons.
The area is partially covered by CCTV.
Floor surface to the lifts is short pile carpet.
The lifts access the ground floor reception area. The lifts also provide access to three floors. One of these lifts also provides access to the fourth floor.
Ramps are located around the ground floor areas where there are level changes, allowing for standard wheelchair access to our restaurant and access to other areas of the complex.
It should be noted that there is stair access internally between the Derwent and Victoria hotels however it can be accessed on the level externally.
