We stayed at the White Hart Hotel and restaurant in Overton the hotel staff were excellent they were very helpful we were early arriving so had breakfast before going to visit the Bombay Sapphire Gin Museum in Overton .The breakfast was really nice freshly cooked I had a cheese omelet and my husband had eggs Benedict the cost was reasonable .We left our luggage in the car, parking at the hotel is easy they have lots of spaces excluding disable parking bays We asked about buses to the Bombay Gin Museum and the staff directed us to where the bus stop was there is a bus which arrive every half hour it’s only one stop we opted to take the bus as you get a free cocktail with the guided tour so not wanting to drink and drive we caught the bus the bus stop is across the road from the hotel five minutes walk as I walk with a stick I found it easy . The tour at the Bombay was really worth it We learnt so much about the process of making Gin it was fascinating you get to smell the herbs and other ingredients that go into the Gin the tour was easy going walking with a stick the ground is a little uneaten in places but most of it is on even ground .I did not see any wheel chairs I think a phone call ahead of a visit would be helpful .We enjoyed are free cocktail which wasn’t really strong my husband enjoyed his so much he brought himself another one the first one is free with the tour which starts at 10am you get to pick what you would like in your drink by clipping the card they give you as you go around smelling the ingredients that go into making the gin which was in the first room that are group went to. We finished the tour had our lovely cocktail the bar had seating to sit and enjoy your cocktail we went into the shop and brought a couple of bottles as a thank you to our two sons as they brought us the tour as a gift for our 50th wedding anniversary . We arrived back at the hotel after waiting a short time for the bus the stop again is a short walk from the Bombay entrance and were shown to our room by a lovely member of staff the room in the stables which are fairly new was really nice large comfortable bed the bathroom was huge a roll top bath a shower which was really big all tiled in grey tiles really large bathroom for a wheelchair but might struggle in the bedroom getting around the bed .We ate at the hotel dinner was lovely but my husband did have a issue with his fish but the manager sorted it out very quick to both our satisfaction dessert was lovely very good menu .We had a great nights sleep a little noisy to start with we are early to bed as I get tired easy having recently had a Kidney transplant but the noise did not last long I think you have to expect it in a hotel we left early next morning We would differently go back to the hotel drinks are a little expensive at the hotel but you don’t have to go far at the end of the night to your bedroom If you have been drinking or not .Not sure if they have bigger rooms for customers in wheel chairs again a phone call ahead would help but a lovely hotel.
