Neil & Ida Down - Answered a Question by Connolly (22 Oct 08 19:43)

Hello, Mrs. Connolly, I have not found a complete answer to this but I have a partial one. The Elizabeth House Hotel, 42 / 44 The Avenue, Southampton, telephone No. 02380 224327 is reasonably close to the Docks, they have a twin bedroom with full access and fittings and a wet room for showers etc. and a price of £75 per room to include breakfast for 2. I do not know of a hoist in any hotel around here but will make further enquiries if you would like that…but… I am told that the usual way that hoists are obtained is by renting one from Shopmobility, 02380 631265, or the British Red Cross, 01962 865174. I hope you and maybe others will find this useful but I am sorry I cannot yet come up with the full answer. ….. Neil .

Thank you Neil for your help. I never thought of contacting the Red Cross etc. to rent a hoist, it would seem to be a really good answer to our problem and also the information about the hotel. I knew you would come up with a solution. I love this website, we have been on several cruises but have learnt so much more since finding this particular forum and I am afraid I am becoming obsessed by it. Happy cruising everyone.......... Bernadette.
