Having visited Sheephaven Bay for forty years now, since I was a baby, I've never had cause to stay at Arnold's until now but I wasn't disappointed. At very short notice, in high season, they were good enough to find the last room in the house for me, so I was in luck!!
Over the years the family has put every effort into turning this village hotel into a real hub and there's a very lively atmosphere in the foyer as locals combine with residents to attend charity pub quizzes, have a drink, a snack or similar. Lovely turf fire - real, not gas. Lovely silent parlour off the foyer - very nice for reading.
Hotel is softly decorated and lit to create a relaxing atmosphere which is replicated in the bedrooms.
I have utmost faith in the hygiene and general standards of the Arnold family - at all times the premises is spotless throughout.
I strongly recommend this hotel
