3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Only stayed one night and I think this is only what would suite me. The bed was very comfortable with a good hot shower and clean sheets. Carpet a little old. Pub underneath, this was quiet this mid-week night.

We stayed with our pets on a Saturday night - turned up to find out they have live music on EVERY Saturday night. This is NOT advertised on booking.com or on their website because if it had we wouldn't have booked her. Room was an okish size, luckily there was just the two of us staying otherwise it would have... More

The owner is very friendly and welcoming. Everything for making hot drinks is provided in the rooms. There are plenty of places in town for lunch and dinner. The full English breakfast at the Dog Inn is well worth the fiver.

The Dog Inn (no sniggering please), is a lovely little pink pub, in the beautiful town of Halstead. The town is filled with baskets, tubs, and feeders of the most gorgeous flowers, which have won awards - its an absolute delight, with a good range of shops, and pubs, just be aware the town is on a steep hill !...

Very new management here (of only 6 weeks) - very friendly and helpful, and mentioned that they are about to begin a major revamp of the rooms. Everything that mattered was fine even if the rooms are currently a bit tired - linen and towels spotless, the bed was comfy and the water was hot. Lots of in-room treats like... More

The welcome wasn't the warmest of ones when arriving. We actually didn't really get one at all. I said oh I'm here to check into our room for the evening. I was told my card had been declined I just mentioned that it shouldn't have as I had money in my account in a surprised manner as I was quite... More

lovely pub, but tiny little room that should have been a single not a twin. No spare floor space, no wardrobe just an overdoor hook, miniscule bathroom/toilet, wifi signal varied from slow to non-existent (no excuse in this day and age, with wifi repeaters being so cheap), the room was not serviced during a 2 night stay, not even tea...

The Dog Inn is a quaint old pub where I had the pleasure of staying for three nights. The lovely landlady was extremely pleasant and efficient, even though she does everything herself. The lady deserves a medal
