CANADA’S FIRST AUTISTISM-FRIENDLY HOTEL
Hotel Port aux Basques in Newfoundland and Labrador, is being hailed as Canada’s first autism-friendly hotel.
The property features a play lounge, sanctuary, and a plush playboat, ideal for kids with sensory sensitivities.
The hotel’s staff members have been trained to respond to guests on the Autism spectrum, dietary issues are catered for, and rooms are thoughtfully furnished with child safety the priority.
For parents of children who are easily overwhelmed by new sights, sounds, and textures, the Hotel Port aux Basques provides peace of mind so families can enjoy whale-watching, ice-berg spotting, and the natural beauty of Canada’s most eastern province.
