Needed a dog-friendly hotel and couldn't have chosen a better place. We booked Room 1 for 3 days in order to take advantage of the balcony and amazing view this offered. Sitting on the balcony sofa, drinking a G&T in the evening watching the lights along the bay was magical. The room was spacious - 2 adults and 2 large...

Breakfast was exceptional with a very good choice of cereals, fruit and yogurt and the cooked breakfast was the best we had tasted for a long time. It was lovely...

Visited with my elderly father and his dog. I don't think that we could have had been treated any better anywhere.

A very friendly welcome and very informative about dog friendly places to eat and drink. Clean room but quite tired décor, but I believe they are updating. Lovely breakfast with wonderful views. Would stay again.

We booked fairly last minute and were lucky to get the last available room, but we're sure glad we did! Janet and John couldn't have done any more for us. Very accommodating, friendly and a superb place to stay with a stunning view of the North Bay from their terrace. They're in the process of modernizing the hotel as from...

We stayed at the Castle by the sea Hotel for my partners birthday treat. When I booked our room with a sea view I was given the option of parking my car in their garage. Saved it from being decorated by seagulls. John greeted us at the front and helped us unload our car and showed us to our room....
