We chose the Braeside hotel as it is dog friendly and close to the park and beach. It is also just a 5 minute walk from the Playhouse theatre where we were booked to see a show so ideal!
The owner is very friendly and welcoming, he gave us good tips on where to take our dog for walks and gave us lots of useful local info. The hotel has copies of tourist maps for guests to take and they also have OS maps which can be borrowed.
Our room was right at the top of the hotel, so a bit of a hike with the luggage but with nice views and not at all overlooked. It was clean and nicely furnished and had a well stocked refreshment tray. We didn't want for anything, there was even a fan to keep the pooch cool!
Breakfasts were very good and freshly cooked to order, I especially enjoyed the homemade marmalade :-)
Our only very small gripes were that the mattress was a bit too firm (but this is of course just a matter of personal preference) and the shower was very slow, maybe it has too little pressure in that room due to being right at the top of the building.
Overall a very enjoyable stay and we'll definately return!

Thank you for your comments. Yes, the shower on that floor does depend on the water pressure, which is much greater on the lower floors. Beds. All our beds are 'orthopaedic beds' so may be too firm for some. However, we have taken steps to correct this and now all our beds are 'softer', yet still firm.
