An eclectic experience - a building with history and the story of the hotel is told well and has even retained the Chambermaids Scullery to exhibit how it was. We had a very warm welcome at Reception on arrival, comfortable generous sized room (room heating set too warm for us bu

Took friends for high tea at the Walpole and it was excellent. Too much to eat and scones that were to die for. And a really good price. All this and a trip around this wonderful quirky hotel's museum. Can't recommend highly enough.

Can you confirm that you are pet friendly? we would like to stay one night and bring our 2 very well behaved dogs
I stayed one night with my daughter and her well behaved cockapoo. He was allowed in the bedroom. He wasn't allowed in the dining room but they made up a table for us in the next door bar and another table for someone else who had their dog with them. There is plenty of grass to take dogs to between the hotel and the beach.

"sea views the best to appreciate the location"
"Room 308 according to Dee and me. By the way this is also a dog-friendly hotel."
"All rooms have a sea view, someone in 105 is snoring like a pig, so get a room on the 2nd floor !"
"Family room 312 with lovely views on 3rd floor"
"room 305 is the room we stayed in"
