We arrived early and very cold so thought we would have a coffee in the bar to warm us up, we were very happy and grateful when they said we could check in early. Room was lovely but a bit cold, we dropped our baggage off and went off to meet friends. We returned later and had a couple of drinks in the bar, everyone was very friendly and made a fuss of Elwood our dog. When we went up to our room we were happy that it was warmer. The bed was comfortable and we had a lovely nights sleep. The only thing I can think of to complain about is the height of the mirror cos it is way too high to be able to sit and blow dry your hair.
We went to breakfast the next morning and although not allowed in the restaurant because of the dog it was not a problem because we could sit in the bar which is just like an extension to the restaurant. Breakfast was lovely and the waiter was very attentive. I was sad that we were only there for one night but we are already looking at going back and staying longer.
