This hotel is anything but dower !!
We only stayed one night at the Dower, but wished it had been the whole weekend ! Fantastic stay from arrival to leaving. Booking process was painless, the owners Neil & Rosemarie could not have been friendlier, or more accommodating. The hotel itself was warm and welcoming. We stayed in a ground floor suit that opened out onto the gardens with great outside space to allow our lab to run around. Breakfast is a must and nothing was a bother. We will most definitely will be back.
