Nothing was too much trouble for the managers. Despite turning up with a dog which they were not aware of (apparently an error on the on line booking service, I think if you are taking a dog, might be a good idea to ring them direct?)They still welcomed us into a very grand room with a four poster bed and absolutely insisted it was no trouble. The look on my face was not unhappy but "wow they are letting a dog in here!" They also gave us an external door key so we could come and go what ever time of night/early morning our dog needed to answer to the call of nature! Although there was a manned reception, this took away the embarrassment of us having to ask each time. So many lounges to choose from to meet up with guests/family, friends. But if you are someone who likes to stay in their room to relax, you might want to take a few extra tea bags or coffee. However, there is room service if you prefer, for hot drinks snacks etc or pop down to bar/lounge.
The hotel is clean with lots of period furnishings, furniture’s, oil paintings, antiques, all befitting of the age of the building. The whole atmosphere of the hotel is relaxing and laid back. You get free parking on site. The hotel is sited on a quiet area so no noise yet seconds away from the beach.
Breakfast was relaxing and enjoyable. Service was polite, friendly and decently quick. (I am sure that if I had asked they would have moved us to a table over looking the garden where we could have left our dog. As it was, we left her in the car in case she barked whilst we were not with her)
A varied menu to choose from freshly cooked or chilled.
