Access Guide for Atlantis Holiday Apartments April 2017
Getting around Torbay a guide to local transport links including local buses, National Express coaches, rail travel and details of concessionary and disabled persons travel.
This Guide provides information about existing and planned facilities for people visiting Atlantis with disabilities. Because this is a general access guide, it concentrates on providing information that will be particularly helpful for those with mobility disabilities.
Where possible additional information is given for those with other types of disability.
In trying to give accurate information we have not glossed over the obstacles to access that still remain. However, it is important for disabled people not to be put off by reading about less than perfect access in this Guide.
You can always talk to us about future plans and adaptations we might make to suit your needs.
