I am so grateful for the provision of Hearts Together Hospital Hotel at Derriford. On the 22nd of October 2022, my husband was admitted to Derriford Hospital for an emergency neurosurgical operation, I was 200 miles from home and still had 50 miles to go before we got to our holiday rental. It was such a relief to find the Hospital Hotel on the hospital website and for it to be close and have parking. Our car was full of all our holiday packing, and it was good to have it parked out of sight. At first, there was only one night available, and the receptionist put me on a waiting list for the further two nights needed, wonderfully, they became available. 

All this helped in a very stressful situation and enabled me to concentrate on visiting my husband as often as possible and resting. 

The hotel was all I would expect from a hotel and more. It was relaxing to walk to and from the hospital and took me about 10 minutes each way. The room and bed were comfortable. The hotel felt homely and safe. This was due to the very caring attitude of all the staff that I met. Breakfast, drinks, fruit, and biscuits were always available, and I made use of the kitchen and microwaves to cook a few meals. 

I’m very pleased to say that my husband has fully recovered, and I will always be grateful for the wonderful provision of the Hearts Together Hotel Hospital at Derriford.
