Dog barking in a guest room was very annoying. Pet allowance doesn't appear to meet the peace and tranquility of an Inn.
I am very sorry about the barking dog. We have a very strict policy about not leaving a pet unattended, that the guest was aware of when they booked the room. We very rarely have a problem with pets. Unfortunately these guests did not follow our policy. As soon as I heard the dog I contacted the guests, that came back to the Inn with in a half hour, and took the dog with them. It is a unusual occurrence and we are very sorry you had to experience it. Lorraine Nicholas
