Spent two nights three days at the hotel. Victorian/Edwardian charm. All the public rooms were very well appointed and Harper back to a prior era. Every member of staff we encountered were very amiable, helpful and welcoming. There are no fancy amenities but that was the charm.

Sorry for the slow response Yes during our stay we saw three dogs and I’m sure two belonged to the same owner, you can’t take them into the dining rooms but otherwise they can sit with you in the bar or sitting rooms. I would suggest giving the hotel a call they are very helpful

Are there rooms suitable for disabled people
Unfortunately all of our bedrooms are upstairs on either the first or second floors and we have no lift access. Our two sister hotels however do have suitable rooms on the ground floor. They are Cragwood and Briery Wood Hotels.

what time can you check in
About lunchtime I guess. Try calling the hotel and asking the receptionist as they are very friendly and accommodating there.
