We stayed here for four nights with our border collie. The room they gave us was spacious, quiet and (at our request) on the ground floor). The reception staff couldn't have been more helpful in recommending where to walk the dog from the hotel, nearby restaurants, directions etc. We booked B & B but on our next visit will definitely book half board (the photo on their web site of the restaurant does not do it justice). However, the breakfasts were excellent, tasty and good variety, and the waitresses friendly and efficient.
The gym/pool area is an added bonus and has good long opening hours. We have no hesitation in recommending this first rate hotel to anyone and for those with dogs it is a terrific location.
We had a query on our bill which we didn't pick up until we were at home. Following an e-mail, the management quickly and efficiently sorted out the problem, which was a very pleasant surprise as really it was our fault for not spotting it at the time. Much appreciated.
