Good Evening, Thank you for considering staying at our venue. So sorry but we only allow 2 dogs at a time in our bedrooms. We do have ground floor rooms that are dog friendly which are located in our Henry Adams wing which is a very short walk from the main hotel. Please do contact the hotel directly should you wish to continue with your enquiry. Kind Regards The Master Builders Hotel

"not top floor if you have walking problems"
"Avoid the restaurant"
"You would need to book early if you wanted a room with a sea view."
"We were on the top floor with river views, lots of eves but added to the charm"
"If you don't want to pay extra for a riverview room, opt for 15 or 16 in the Henry Adams Wing"
