Our first time here. Superb food efficiently served. They have their act well together. Great room overlooking the bay with spectacular moonlight on the water at one stage. Great place for walking. Good choice, pretty scenery, well signposted.

Balcary Bay - evening view from room
This was our room view of the bay
Gently lapping tide
High tide but still room to walk a dog either on the beach or on the hotel's grass
Yes, dogs are welcome to stay with you in the rooms. We stayed here with our border terrier. in a garden view room. They even have dog bags in a dispenser in the grounds. A walk along the shore is a must. lots of interesting smells. I would advise against the longer version of the walk to balcary point as you would have to pass through a field of cows who react badly to dogs. We saw a woman being knocked over by the cows. Take your dog to this hotel and have a great time. We did.

It is a lovely secluded bay, forest tracks as well as the gardens, stretch of beach at the back of the hotel, there is also a cliff walk that can be taken from the hotel, no doubt they could supply you with more information.

Hi I would say either is fine - but a heightened view ie. first floor would be a better option. Have a lovely time! Damian
