As pet owners we are usually limited with accomodation that will allow our dog and this was one of the places in Almouth where pets were 'very welcome'.
We arrived late Friday (we had forewarned them) and check in was swift. We found the car park with no issues and there seemed to be plenty of space even if the place was full.
The communal areas were all clean and no hint of 'eau de pet' as some might expect.
We stayed in room 2- the one with the blue bathroom suite on the front road- we have no issue in the colour of the bathroom- it was clean and fully functional so met the requirements.
The room was well furnished and roomy, clean and no road noise.
We could also control our own heating and this is a welcome suprise! Spare bedding in the wardrobe also.
The bed was 2 singles originally and we felt this during the night however they were comfy.
There was noise from the church clock opposite every 15 mins/half hour and on the hour. We couldn't hear this above the tv but could during the night. Also, when other guests flushed the toilet we could hear the waterpipes during the night.
The breakfast room had allocated tables which I suppose helped with the service- the lady who served us (of advanced years)- was very warm and polite.
Breakfast on both mornings was of a good quality and cooked to order-a very personal service and quite a selection to choose from. Usual array of cereals/juice/jams/ etc were also on offer.
Breakfast room was bright, clean and contained an eclectic mix of ornaments and local paintings.
We were also able to leave our dog in the room while we ate (or no-one told us otherwise!).
This is a lovely friendly b&b, nothing pretentious, just what it makes out to be which is refreshing.
Would stay here again and recommend to others.
