Even though the weather was not really good, the Runswick Bay Hotel is a lovely place to stay, especially if you're travelling with dogs. The bar area is cozy, the staff very friendly and no matter what weather, the dogs are allowed to be with you all the time (of course except the restaurant). The rooms are a bit... (odd...

We stayed a few weekends at the Runswick Bay Hotel in both May and June 2016. We were allocated the family room (room 3) which delighted my children as they got to fight over who got "top bunk".

This time we weren't staying here as we rented a cottage in the village but,we had a lunch and an evening meal here. The quality was as good as ever and the welcome just as warm as we remember for us and our Great Dane! We cannot speak highly enough of the things Simon and his staff have achieved here...

The staff really made an effort to accommodate our requirements... by the end of the evening we were firm friends... Steph set the standard but Hayley and Tom delivered. We were...

Staff cannot do enough for you, always a smile and great service. The rooms are comfortable and well presented. The breakfast good and the evening meals are excellent. Nice...

Perched at the top of the steep drop to Runswick Bay sits this wonderful hotel. We had decided to spend an extra night in the area and so booked this hotel since we decided it looked more hosplitable than other nearby establishments, and what an excellent decision it was. After an evening stroll down to the bay and a pint...

We were staying at the nearby campsite and this hotel provided both a place to have a quiet drink and a very pleasant meal. The staff were very friendly and there was 2 bars and a restaurant, although you could have food in any room as well as outside. The hotel is also dog friendly, although they are not allowed...
