Central position in village, short walk to the coast. Thought the dog friendly lounge was excellent, very comfortable but unfortunately service wasn’t as prompt in there. Didn’t like the fact that people didn’t use the dog lounge facility and chose to leave their dogs in the bedroom which resulted in them barking and disturbing others.
