Pet-friendly London hotels
Have pet – will travel? It is surprisingly easy to holiday with a furry friend in the capital, with a little advance planning and some location know-how.
Here are my five favourites:
Best for families: Travelodge London Waterloo
Travelling with family in tow can be stressful and adding a canine only ups the stress levels. Travelodge allow pets at all their London locations and in my opinion, the Waterloo branch is the best. Amazing customer service; a view of London Eye from my room; the river bank was ideal for walkies; takeaway pizza available 24/7 so you don’t have to abandon your pet at dinner time; a civilised 12noon check out… I could go on… Expect to pay £20 per pet.
Best for luxury: The 41
A five-star gem in Victoria next to Buckingham Palace, this hotel is ideal for my Telegraph chums who need to visit the office for a meeting, but want to bring a pet. TriAdvisor reviews rave about this ‘charming’ hotel and I bet if dogs could type, they would too. Expect a welcome hamper, bed, mineral water and menus. What’s more the Concierge will provide pet-sitting, walking and grooming services, plus litter boxes and first-aid kits.
Best extras: Bermondsey Square Hotel
It’s well worth taking a trip to Bermondsey to find this highly individual hotel. So many London boutiques claim that they are ‘bespoke’ – the Bermondsey Square Hotel not only has the quirky decor but also the personalised service to live up to that label. Furry guests receive with a ribbon-wrapped bone, water bowl and basket, as well as some canine treats. A charge of £20 per night applies.
Best apartment: The Milestone Hotel
If you are planning a long-term stay in the capital – perhaps as a visiting expat – an apartment is a home from home that offers the best of both worlds, in terms of facilities yet also privacy. The Milestone Hotel goes the extra mile from the second you book with its Pet Preference Form -request your pet’s favourite food, treats, and even book a grooming session. A comfy pet bed, mineral water and a turndown treat are provided and, when you are busy with business, the concierge is on hand to walk your dog.
