ASD Sensory Boxes

Autism Awareness and Support During Your Visit

Hotels can sometimes be difficult sensory environments for people with autism. Many people with autism can struggle with sensory integration; this means the 5 senses can, at any given time, be over or under-stimulated.

At our hotel, we have introduced sensory boxes to help guests with autism to engage their senses and to relax.

A Sensory Box is a container filled with any kind of tactile material that kids explore with their hands. With a Sensory Box, children are using their sight, touch and smell to experience their environment in a totally new way. It’s a great way for children to engage their senses and to relax in a new environment. These boxes are made available to guests on arrival, both for overnight guests as well as those just visiting the restaurant or attending a private event in the hotel.

You can borrow a sensory box from our team at reception.
