          I am allergic to dogs and cats. Do you have a twin or double room that hasn't had any dogs or cats in? If you have an animal free room, we would like to stay three nights, 26, 27 and 28 May. Can I book two nights and one night through Groupon please? Will that work with you? Thanks, Kim

          I recently stayed at the Royal and there were two visitors who had three dogs between them. The dogs were allowed in the bar area and were obviously kept in the guest rooms.
