Since Roman times, Buxton has enjoyed a reputation for health and wellbeing with its natural source of warm thermal water and minerals. Buxton Crescent, a sweeping masterpiece of 18th century architecture, remains at the heart of this famous spa town offering luxury hotel accommodation and spa facilities including a thermal pool, relaxation pool and a beautiful roof top outdoor pool.
The hotel wanted to get a solution in place to enable guests who might be elderly, disabled or recovering from injury to be able to access the different pools. Because the pool areas are below ground, the hotel was able to choose between a fixed or a portable pool lift. The Pool Lift Company recommended its portable Blu Pod pool lift as the most effective solution for the luxury spa environment.
With its compact design and modern appearance, the Blu Pod is a popular choice for venues seeking a pool lift which offers ease of operation and a positive experience for its customers. It can be manoeuvred into place within small areas and is able to navigate around tight bends, making it ideal for use within heritage buildings. Guests can be safely and comfortably transported from the changing room to the pool side before being gently lowered into the water, resulting in a dignified and stress free experience.
Satisfied that the Blu Pod was the right choice, Buxton Crescent Hotel placed an order for the pool lift which was delivered in time for the hotel to open their doors again to guests after months of lockdown due to COVID-19 restrictions.
The pool lift has provided a valuable addition to the spa which already features an accessible spa café, mud treatment rooms and salt cave. With this access solution now in place, guests with disabilities or limited mobility can also enjoy the range of pools which are an essential part of the therapeutic and relaxing environment.
The spa is looking forward to welcoming a wider audience by promoting step free access to its pools and their onsite physiotherapist with new rehabilitation spa packages.
