Service Charges - A discretionary 10% Service Charge is applied to bills in the South Sands Restaurant and Bar. No other service charges are applied as we believe this should always be at the guest’s discretion.

Some of our rooms are able to fit a cot or an extra bed. Please contact the hotel direct if you require one. A supplement will apply.

It is the guests responsibility to inform us if they are bringing a dog, ahead of arrival - as only limited rooms are dog friendly.


At the point of booking, we will require your credit card details.
