With a little nervousness, I booked 3 nights at the Bond, with my 2 Angels, Christine & Christine.........my carers. It was to be my first holiday without my hard worked husband, as he stayed at home to re-do my wet room floor!
This hotel is only 1 of 2 I could find which would accommodate me and my requirements as a full time wheelchair user. I chose the Bond, as it had all the same equipment I have at home ie
ceiling hoist, wheel in shower chair, commode, electric profiling bed and fine cotton sheets.
The welcome we received was genuine and caring. Our triple bedroom was a little lacking in the storage department, but we coped.
The evening entertainment kept us singing, laughing and for those that could, dancing too. The acts asked where we were all from and mentioned us by name and town, to which we all cheered.
The food? Well my friends, let me tell you, it was first class........all freshly cooked and we were given the choice of waitress service or self serivce.
Some of our fellow guests needed the former, so we were happy to see to ourselves.
The guests` health issues were wide and diverse, but everyone relaxed and felt they had a right to do whatever they wanted, without being looked at or teased in any way. We could just be ourselves.
We made new friends and had a wonderful time.
Will we return? You bet we will!
The 2 Christines and Polly from Halifax.
