Dogs accepted but not dog friendly
Posted Oct 3, 2016 on Hotels
I was disappointed in the condition of our room, which didn't appear to have been cleaned. There were clean towels, but the bedding showed signs of previous occupancy, dog hairs and spots of blood on the sheets. I didn't show my wife this as she would have immediately asked to leave and go elsewhere, an option that wasn't practical at 10pm on a Saturday.
On a positive note, we had a lovely breakfast before we left. A good range of cereals, including porridge and a hot breakfast buffet. There are also lovely walks in the grounds and just outside the hotel, ideal for exercising our dog who accompanied us.
I felt the cost of the night's stay was about £20 too much. We've stayed in other hotels which are cleaner, have cost less and more dog friendly (treats supplied). These are usually smaller family-run establishments.
Would we stay again? Not sure. The hotel is a convenient half way overnight stop for our Scotland to London trip, located just off the M6. We would probably look for something more dog friendly next time.
