Early last year my wife and I stayed in Mount Wolseley Hotel in Tullow, Co. Carlow. It is a delightful hotel with good bar food and warm swimming pool.
In preparation for our trip I visited the hotel website, looking for directions to the hotel and information about the facilities.
The initial map is a little confusing because it has a starting location that appears to be in the middle of nowhere (it’s actually “Co. Carlow, Ireland” in Google Maps – Green Road in the centre of Carlow town would be more useful, especially as Carlow town is not an option in the drop down list of starting points on the page and I am sure that a number of their customers live in nearby Carlow).
Back on topic, this post is about the typo on a map inside the hotel. Around the corner from the lobby, close to the toilets, is a large wall mounted map of the hotel interior. I quickly spotted the “accessable” typo and I couldn’t help but notice it everytime I passed the map. I photographed it with my lowly mobile phone camera, hence the poor quality.
I checked Google for a definition of “accessable” and it is listed as:
Common misspelling of accessible
I don’t remember whether I reported this to staff at the reception desk though I did email them about the map page prior to my visit. Nothing has changed.
