Are children welcome in the hotel?
Children are very welcome in the hotel. Extra beds are available for £25 per night B&B, although only a limited number of rooms can accommodate them, so please check before booking. Our Horsley suite can comfortably accommodate a family with up to 4 children.
Are children welcome in the restaurant?
Yes. However, in the main restaurant we only allow children under 7 before 7 p.m., to preserve the ambience of a relaxed fine dining restaurant. Families with children under 7 may still dine from the restaurant menu in our conservatory brasserie. In fine weather the terrace provides a great al fresco dining option, allowing children to play in the garden while remaining in view of their parents.
Can I bring my pet?
Pets are not allowed in the hotel. Non-residents dining on the terrace are welcome to bring well-behaved pets while dining or enjoying a drink on the terrace or in the garden.
What is the dress code?
Whatever makes you comfortable! Many guests dress up for dinner in the evening, but if you prefer to stay casual that’s absolutely fine. Orestone is a relaxed environment where we want everyone to feel at home.
Do you have disabled access rooms?
Do you have ground floor rooms?
Our Garden Suite is at ground floor level. Please note that the shower is over the bath, and you do need to step outside to reach its private entrance.
Do you have twin rooms?
Yes. Rooms 5 & 6 can be configured as double or twin, and room 9 is a twin room.
What time can I check in?
Whenever you like, but rooms will be available from 3.00 p.m. Feel free to drop luggage off earlier, or come and relax in the hotel or gardens.
What time should I check out?
By 11.00 on your day of departure, please.
Are there any good walks nearby?
Lots! Our team will be happy to give you suggestions, from gentle strolls to serious hikes.
Do you have internet access?
Yes, complimentary Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel
Do you have a pool?
Not at present. We plan to refurbish our heated outdoor pool at the bottom of the garden and re-open it in 2015. Please note that it will only be available in the warmer months, and for residents use only.
Which rooms have sea views?
All our rooms have some view of the sea apart from room 12. Rooms 10 & 11 the view is from the roof terrace. The best views are from our feature rooms.
Do you cater for vegetarians?
Absolutely. We offer a full vegetarian menu with lots of choice. Please see a sample vegetarian menu here.
Where is the nearest beach?
Maidencombe beach, straight down the hill outside the hotel. It’s about 10 mins walk there, but a steep 20mins or so on the way back. Or you can drive down the hill and park within 100 yards or so.
Do you have a lift?
Unfortunately not. We do have one ground floor room, the Garden Suite, but the remainder are up either one or two flights of stairs. The stairs are wide and have banisters all the way, so quite easy as stairs go. We are always happy to carry your luggage for you of course.
