          There are rooms in our River Court (an annex to the main hotel), which are pet friendly rooms. Cats and dogs are charged at £10 per pet per night.

          Many apologies... I don't tend to check back! I believe you can take a dog, we have seen them there, but would not be staying in the main hotel. Phone them for details.
