This was my second stay at this hotel, returning to it for a weekend break after 10 years. We chose the hotel because it's dog friendly, because of its excellent location and because of our good experience in the past.
The rooms were clean and reasonably well furnished but lacked significantly in any sense of loveliness. The furniture was a little tired and not very well positioned (despite a good sized-room, it all looked a little cluttered). The real problem was that we paid £240 for two nights' of accommodation, which included the dog (often costs extra in other places) and a rather mediocre breakfast (again, more reminiscent of the 1980s). I am happy to spend a night in hotels like this, but I would expect to pay £60-75 per night, not £120.
If you want to stay somewhere special, I would recommend looking elsewhere until the pricing reflect what is being delivered more realistically.
