I was going to put average for the rating but gave it very good for one simple reason - they are very dog friendly - even if it is not mentioned on the website/in the hotel blurb or anywhere else.
We took a last minute decision to bring along our dog who'd been a bit poorly and I phoned to ask if they allowed dogs (yes) if I needed to be in a particular room (no) if I needed to give them forewarning (no) and if it cost any extra (no)..............in this day and age, this is quite unusual!
The rest was pretty average - the room we were in (room 15) looked along the side of the hotel towards the sea and it was a reasonable size (it had a double and single bed in it) but the décor was pretty dated with plenty of storage space, but a dressing table (who even has a dressing table nowadays?) across the window which was most likely to have a view - and you ended up in bed, staring at yourself in the mirror - which in my case isn't ideal!
On the plus side the bathroom looked like it had a refresh recently.
Whilst other reviews have said the breakfast was good - I'm afraid we've stayed in the Havelock next door - and breakfast is so much better there!
