Disabled Access Statement for Anton Guest House B&B

Accessibility at the B&B

The information provided here should be helpful in assessing your decision to stay with us. We would not want anyone to book with us if the facilities would be unsuitable for your particular needs. We are aware that every person has different needs, only you are able to decide to what extent we are able to accommodate you. Should you require further information to determine if the B&B is suitable for you, please ask before booking, we are happy to answer any questions you may have.

We provides bed and breakfast accommodation in Shrewsbury Shropshire. The property is a Victorian town house situated in a conservation area and retains many original features therefore we are limited in the modifications we may make to the building. This of course will mean restricted access for some visitors although we do our best to accommodate all guests who wish to stay with us. The B&B is not suitable for wheelchair users as we have no ground level accommodation.
