Dogs most welcome and allowed to bring their humans too. The food was really good, if you're a beer lover try the Curious ale. Lovely staff, great location, quirky and comfortable rooms. Can't really say anything negative. We will go again.

To be honest I have no idea, I stayed in a lodge and never made breakfast once as the late nights did not readily transend into early mornings, the staff are really friendly and a quick call should get you the answer you need
