We stayed in the Biology room which had arched window views over the harbor and out to the Atlantic. Spacious, well-equipped, warm, comfortable - everything we needed plus great hot breakfasts and lots of good evening options as well as afternoon tea.

I'm sorry I don't know - there were no dogs inside when we were there but that's not to say they weren't accepted. Maybe give them a quick call?
