Wet room facilities in East Lothian

jenlang1960 Member Posts: 1 Listener
Can anyone recommend a hotel/accommodation in East Lothian which has wet room facilities please?
I’m sure I’m not alone in finding it extremely difficult in finding the right accommodation . I have just contacted a hotel who supposedly has a disabled accessible room but was told that the room wouldn’t be suitable for us as my husband is on a wheelchair!  I enquired about the positioning of the bed (an important factor for us as I need to get the wheelchair alongside the bed to transfer).  The response- “it’s just a normal room, wouldn’t be suitable”.  How on earth do we take these people to task.  It’s not good enough. All I want is to find decent, suitable accommodation .  I have tried the Euan’s Guide (guide to all things to do with access ), but no luck there.  Any advice on either of my points would be very much appreciated. 
Thank you

    Hi @jenlang1960 - Welcome to the community. I've also found a link which may be of some use. Here are a few examples: https://www.disabledaccessholidays.com/disabled-holidays/disabled-accessible-resorts/UK-Region/Edinburgh-&-The-Lothians.asp

    Hi @jenlang1960 and welcome to the Community.  It is nice to meet you.  Sorry to hear you are having so much trouble in finding a suitable hotel for you and your husband in East Lothian.  Wishing to have a wet-room shouldn't be an impossible task for hotels to provide for disabled guests.  I had a wee look myself, but couldn't find anything better than the information @thespiceman and @chiarieds have provided above.  You could maybe try VisitScotland's head office in Edinburgh to see if they could provide further help.  Here is there telephone number - 0131 472 2222 and this is their website:-


    Sorry I can't be of more help to you.  I live in Scotland, but not that part and have only ever passed through East Lothian and not stayed there.  Lovely part of the world though and I hope you and your husband have an amazing time!  

    If there is anything else we can help you with then please just let us know.  All the best.   :)
