Hi Maxine. Have you ever used Laterooms.com? It’s a fab website and you get hotels good discounts. Just put in the postcode of the hospital and it will bring up all B&B’s and hotels that are in close proximity and they show how many miles away they are. x
My partner came with me and it was an hour and half drive.. he stayed at the hospital through the day during the op – was on his own for around 2 hours whilst I was in theatre and out of it, then in the evening he went home and came back the following morning.
If it’s only 5 miles away, wouldn’t it be easy enough to get home for them?? xx
