Are well behaved dogs allowed to stay at this hotel.
Apologies to West Bay hotel my report was meant to be for the Haddon House Hotel NOT West Bay hotel!!
"Room 1 faces the road & beach. Large bedroom and large bathroom with shower but no bath"
"Ask for room with sea view"
"We had room Number 1 and was just as described"
"Front of the house for a view of the beach"
"Rooms at the rear very quiet."
