Great restaurant

The food at the on-site restaurant at Dog & Bear has received many outstanding compliments from guests who have had the pleasure of trying the cuisine. Most guests prefer to dine in every night, instead of heading to town, as there is always something new and tasty on the menu.

Plenty of parking

Negative Reviews


Dodgy staircase

If you are afraid of heights, or if you do have a disability, you might have a problem if you are any higher than the ground floor. Guests have reported that the stairs do not have hand railings, and are quite steep, which resulted in many visitors needing an extra hand.


Some noisy rooms

If you happen to be booked into a room near to the bar at the Dog & Bear, it would be preferable if you don't mind being part of the social scene. These rooms are noisy because of the cheerful atmosphere at the bar, so if you would prefer something quieter, ask for a room much further away.


Looking a bit tired

Although this is a beautiful old building, guests feel that the furniture and bedding don't need to be. The bedding is reported to be a little worse for the wear, and the furniture is not modern at all. Nonetheless, most guests enjoyed their stays enough to book their next vacation.
