Park House Hotel, a Leonard Cheshire Disability service which supports disabled guests and their carers to have a holiday, is set to reopen after a serious fire destroyed the kitchen.
The service, which is the birthplace of Princess Diana, was evacuated on Friday, October 9 after the fire alarm was activated. The quick actions of staff and firefighters meant fire damage was limited to the kitchen and no one was harmed. Guests were supported to leave the hotel the following day, with the offer to reschedule their holiday or get a full refund.
Park House staff have moved quickly to put a temporary kitchen in place. The service welcomed guests back from last Monday, with full hotel service resuming from tomorrow, (Saturday).
Park House service manager Tess Gilder said: “On behalf of staff and the Companions of Park House, we want to thank the community, the fire service and our guests for their support and understanding at this time.
“We immediately started the clean-up following the fire, and are now looking forward to getting the hotel fully opened to our guests.”
