We needed to stay over in the area for a night and TravelZoo has an offer for The Collingwood. As we were taking our dogs, we had to pay extra for a family room plus an additional dog charge. This was half as much again but we had no real option.
The public areas in the hotel are beautifully presented but our room was fairly dated. However, it was close to the front door to walk the dogs which was great. Just a short walk and we were near the sea and there is a smashing green area to exercise them.
Our room was way too warm, even with the radiator off as we weren’t able to undo the window. The pillows were also like sandbags, not conducive to a good night’s sleep. However the bed was gloriously comfortable.
Dinner was included in our deal and that couldn’t be faulted. Service from Kieran was attentive and efficient with a bit of banter along the way. The evening food was excellent, as was breakfast utterly delicious.
The hotel is very COVID aware with the signs, sanitiser and processes we’ve come to expect these days. We both felt very safe.
Our dogs were made very welcome and accommodated for.
Despite the room, we thought the hotel was excellent and will be taking advantage of TZs offer before it expires.
