Love this hotel & very dog friendly

Lovely big rooms & delicious food🥰🥰

Kate Biard, August 2020

We stay there regularly and they are so welcoming to our dogs. Dog bowls and beds are provided in your room and there is a sign you can leave on the door to say that an unattended dog is in the room. Many places you have to put your dog(s) in the Car whilst you have breakfast and dinner. Dogs are allowed in the bar and lounges. There is an excellent dog walking place opposite the hotel for taking the dogs out first thing and last thing at night. It is in a beautiful location so we are spoilt for choice with many walks straight from the door. Not only that but also the food and service is excellent. We treat ourselves to a couple of mini breaks there once or twice a year.

Very welcoming to dogs, see them as part of the family and treat them just same as human guests. Have the bedroom set up to suit dogs also.
