Comfortable room in a wonderful location. Breakfast was delicious and it was beautiful sitting out on the veranda to eat it. Super comfortable bed and amazing pillows. Hot chocolate watching movies whilst it poured with rain outside was special. Highly recommend.

Hi Anna, maybe ask Spicers directly. Even though the number of hotel rooms is small, the restaurant is open to the public and they also cater for functions. They are probably use to dietary requests. All the best, Jane
