    I loved this family run hotel. Booked a room with sea view and wasnt disappointed. Staff friendly. Breakfast lovely. Car park is tricky and easy to get blocked in but staff move your car to try and ensure nobody is blocked in on checking out.

    Hi, to be honest, I did see a dog there a few years ago, but cannot confirm a recent policy on the subject. They have been taken over last year so you would have to check.

    There is soap, and shampoo and a handy shower cap - they also offer to provide anything you may need as well. Very helpful.
