We were looking for a short pre-winter break, so stayed here for two nights. Chose here because you can take along your dog. She loved it because it is ideally situated right on the sea front, very close for lots of beach walks.
Our room was of good standard, modern bathroom and clean comfortable bedding. We were expecting the worst when informed we will be given one of the pet friendly rooms (stained carpets and doggy smells) but the only smells were that of paint, as this room had obviously been recently redecorated. There were a few minor irritations, with the room, a ray of bright light came in all around and under the door from the corridor lighting, the extractor fans at the back were right by the window and quite noisey at times, but this didn't spoil our stay. Would of been lovely to have a see view so will ask next time if this is possible when taking a dog.
The staff were generally very pleasant, although some not very engaging with conversation. I think not all are particularly dog lovers, I got the impression the man on duty when we arrived and there again for breakfast on Monday was not a pet lover at all. He appeared quite irritated by our presence.
We chose to eat there on the Sunday evening (just a bar meal, sandwich perhaps) and made it down half hour before they were due to stop serving food, only to be told that they stopped serving half hour before as they were too quiet! Most places that value your custom would probably be able to rustle up a sandwich and a bag of crips, after all, there are times in the information folder for meals and we made sure we were there in good time.Maybe the chef on duty had took the opportunity to go off early and the other staff just couldn't be bothered. Not good for business!
Another irritation that may put others off returning is the fact that there were quite a few locals in the bar on Saturday night,(nothing against that) except few had had quite a bit to drink. Their choice of language left a lot to be desired at times. Although I didn't find it off putting, I would imaging some folks would, especially as it was being tolerated by the staff and in front of paying residents.
All in all we had a pleasant stay, nice to know that there is somewhere we can take our dog. It's a good find for us and expect we shall be returning. Just hope the staff go that little bit further as it would make all the difference.
