At Dormy House Hotel, we understand the importance of taking charge of the details of planning a wake and offering calm and comfortable surroundings for the event. Our friendly team will listen to your requirements with compassion, making sure the wake is exactly as you want it and working closely with you or your chosen funeral director to ensure that your needs are taken care of sympathetically.

It’s vital that a sensitive occasion such as a wake passes without incident. We’ll take the stress of planning away from those for whom the day may well be incredibly hard.

Dormy House’s public rooms are flexible and can accommodate between 10 and 100 seated guests, and our range of catering options can be tailored to fit your budget and dietary requirements.

Whether you’d like a full three-course meal, carvery, afternoon tea or a buffet spread – or perhaps a simpler offering of coffee and biscuits – we have the facilities to provide food to suit your wishes. The hotel is easily accessible and has a car park.

Talk to us, and we’ll create a wake that gives you the peaceful space to remember your loved one.

Not forgetting, of course, our unique sea views, which offer a special atmosphere for reminiscence.
