In order to help you with any questions you may have about our hotels or about the New Forest we have put together a number of frequently asked questions that we are often asked by guests.
Are dog’s allowed to stay in any of your hotels?
Yes, all four of our hotels allow dogs to stay for just £7.50 per dog per night. Just mention that you would like to bring your four-legged friend when you make your booking. Dogs are allowed in the communal areas of the hotels apart from the restaurants (unless they are guide dogs). Visit our dog friendly pages to find out more.
I understand that there is a dinner allowance when staying on a dinner, bed and breakfast package at your hotels, how does this work?
Each guest staying with us on a package, which includes dinner, is given a dinner allowance of £25 per night. However, should you wish to spend more than this it is not a problem we will simply add the charge to your room.
