Would you except a small dog?
Yes, we accommodate all sizes of dogs (except giant breeds) in certain rooms with great pleasure. There is a charge of £20 per dog per day and we provide a suitably sized bed, some dog towles, a food bowl and water bowl, some home-made biscuits (delicious, I'm told). We also have a menu of organic meals, a dog wash station and a list of walks you can go in the area with your dog on or off a lead. Regards Charles

"I would go for a Luxury room if possible."
"We had a suite with 2 bathrooms but the room set up was a bit strange as the second bathroom was large but a bit outdated."
"Ask to be treated as a preferential customer - tell them that you are a VIP"
"Don’t think there was a lift. Standard rooms not massive."
"The best rooms go to preferential customers they also get preferential reservation seating in the restaurant it is discriminatory."
US$215 - US$414 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
