If you are celebrating a special occasion, or just want a treat, you can pre-order a bottle of chilled champagne or sparkling wine to be waiting for you on arrival.

We welcome groups of all sizes and children and we can provide travel cots and cot bedding for a small surcharge (pre-ordering of cots and cot bedding is essential).

We welcome well-behaved dogs on the understanding that they are never left unattended in the bedrooms. Dogs are welcome in the bar and bar-lounge where you can enjoy an evening meal although space is limited so booking is recommended. Breakfast is only served in the restaurant where dogs are not allowed so we ask that dogs are put in their owners’ car during breakfast. We charge £5 per night for dogs.

What Our Guests Say

Fabulous Views

Excellent Stay

Stayed in the family suite, the kids loved it and it was great they could move from room to room without disturbing other guests. We had a meal in the restaurant, food was gorgeous and the staff very friendly and helpful. All reassuring when you have two young children who can't sit still! All in all a very good stay.
