There are a few general questions here that hopefully will answer some of the questions you may have. 

However, if you’re still wondering the answer to something then just email [email protected] and Lindsey will be right on it!

Yes, there is one parking space per bedroom. The parking spaces are on the slightly small side, so please be courteous when parking. If you have any issues on arrival, come and find Lindsey and she’ll be happy to help.

Yes, we can easily welcome doggies to the Hotel. Other pets are subject to a discussion with Lindsey. We have had a cat and a bird come to stay but it does need to be well coordinated! It is complimentary to bring your pet. 

Doggies are asked to bring their own bedding and food with them. They are only allowed in certain bedrooms, so please do mention that they are coming to stay. Doggies are not allowed on the furniture, or the beds. The Hotel will incur penalties from the laundry company if dog hairs are caught up in the laundry sent back for cleaning, and we don’t want to have to pass these charges on to you. The Hotel also asks that doggies aren’t in the breakfast room at breakfast time, just in case other guests are nervous of dogs or they get too excited at the smell of sausages and bacon!

The Hotel was originally built with just two bathrooms! Mr Petty was proud to announce that there was hot and cold running water to each floor, a mod con!

Since then bathrooms have been installed, here is the current configuration:

  • Doubles: 2 x baths with handheld showers, 2 x shower cubicle
  • Twin: 1 x bath with handheld shower, 1 x shower cubicle
  • Suites: 3 x shower cubicle 
  • Twin Suite: 1 x bath with standing shower over bath

As you can see there are many options, so if you have a preference please let us know as soon as possible.
