Set just back from the beach in Ayr, the Horizon Hotel is the only hotel on the seafront – enjoying views of Ayr Beach, and over the Firth of Clyde to the magnificent Isle of Arran.

Accessible Parking?

Yes. The Horizon Hotel has its own car park (with lighting and security cameras).

Entrance – Access

The main entrance is normally reached via a flight of 5 steps. However, there is a wheelchair accessible ramp here too. And there is direct access from the car park to the wheelchair accessible entrance ramp.

Within the building, there is another small flight of steps (6) to the main reception area. There is also a small platform lift here that can be used by wheelchair users though.

Building Accessibility

Both of the accessible rooms at the Horizon Hotel are on the ground floor. However, there is also a lift to the upper floor.

Wheelchair Accessible Bedrooms

There are two wheelchair accessible bedrooms in the Horizon Hotel. Each has an accessible ensuite bathroom – with a BATH (which is equipped with a bath lift).

[Personal note: I miss not having a bath (it’s just not practical in my house – just a shower, shower chair – and grab-rails everywhere). As a result, I haven’t had a proper bath for almost five years now. So when I read about the bath/bath lift at the Horizon Hotel, my heart sank at first (from an accessibility perspective). Now that I know more about it though, I’m actually now seriously considering staying there myself, although I live nearby – just so that I can enjoy a bath again (and their excellent food/views too of course) ].

Wheelchair Accessible Toilets (Public Areas)?

Yes. There are accessible toilets on both the ground floor and also on the first floor of the Horizon Hotel. The accessible toilet on the first floor can be accessed via a lift.

Wheelchair Accessible Cafe/Restaurant

The restaurant at the Horizon Hotel is called “Vista” – and once you see the amazing views from the restaurant, you’ll understand where the name comes from.

The restaurant is fully wheelchair accessible, and there is easy access to a wheelchair accessible public toilet here too.
