We have stayed before at the Hounddog, and we returned due to the superb service. Everything was beyond brilliant, and recommend the Hounddog to everyone. It very clean comfortable, along with being a home from home.

Just returned from a surprise weekend away with my other half, staying with Phil and Julie, what more can I say other than they are the best hosts, they exude enthusiasm and pride in their business & they love spending time with their guests in the evening rather than hiding themselves away. We thoroughly enjoyed their stories about the hotel... More
