Wolsztyn Experience course accommodation
For our course participantís accommodation is provided in the Society house and at the depot and is assigned by Howard on arrival. If we have larger than normal groups we also use a nearby guest house. All accommodation is within 7 mins walk to the depot or station.
Our accommodation consists of 1-twin en-suite, 3 double en- suite rooms and 2 singles that share a bathroom. Clients are never expected to share a room unless requested by themselves. By having so many doubles we can cater for the increasing number of course participants who bring their wives or partners with them either as participants or to enjoy the sightseeing, shopping or sport activities that are far cheaper than in the UK.
We try to keep groups together with the normal allocation being the four rooms in the house being used for the one week courses and the 2 at the depot for weekend courses. However owing to requests for all en-suite rooms and travellers from the far side of the world who may stay longer than the course period so to as avoid clients changing rooms it is not always possible to keep groups together in the same location however it can be more important to keep working pairs together, particularly with a train service of one early morning train and one afternoon.
The accommodation in the depot is on the first floor of the engine mens house. Each room is en suite and enjoys a stocked fridge. The ground floor contains the depot museum.
