The Chicest Dog-Friendly Hotels In The UK

From London to Bath and Surrey to Scotland, the UK has plenty of dog-friendly hotels for “petcations” with canine friends. Celebrating National Pet Day (it’s today) has never looked chicer.

Barbour food bowls, dog grooming services, dog nannies, and unlimited treats – it’s all on offer at these UK stays where you can sleep next to and dine with your dog. Yes, really. Whether searching for a grand pamper at a palatial city suite or long walks at a boutique countryside bolthole, these hotels have you and your furry-friends covered.

These are the UK’s best dog-friendly hotels, guaranteed to greet both pets and guests with five-star hospitality.

Rosewood, London

At Rosewood London, your precious pups will receive the same level of pampering as you, from the moment their paws step into the Grade II listed building. Each of the intimate restaurants and bars here – as well as 24/7 room service – open their doors and services to both you and your dog. This includes traditional afternoon teas with an artistic twist, the Mirror Room’s intimate dining space serving seasonal sharing plates, the Holborn Dining Room where you’ll find a traditional British menu, and Scarfes Bar for creative cocktails next to a roaring fire. Upstairs, suites have been renovated to bring modern comforts to guests and pets alike. On arrival, you’re welcomed with branded slippers and gowns plus Votary toiletries, and dogs will receive Barbour food bowls, a bed, a litter tray, toys, and treats by leading dog-food brand, Lily’s Kitchen. Flick through the hotel’s Expawriences Guide where every dog-friendly restaurant, bar, and park in the neighbourhood are recommended or, if you’d prefer to keep your adventures to the hotel’s own territory, there’s a grooming service, access to dog sitting, walking, and even training for younger pups available on site. 

Beaverbrook, Surrey

With 470 acres of green gardens, woodland walks and country charm, what’s not to love for energetic pups? Built in 1580, this Elizabethan building stands proud in the Surrey countryside, boasting the very best of British comfort and luxury at once. Dogs are welcome for overnight stays in specially-appointed bedrooms as well as for daytime visits, and can be included for lunch at one of the hotel’s restaurants, The Garden House, with dishes inspired by the surrounding walled-kitchen gardens. While the fresh scents of herbs and seasonal vegetables growing in the hotel gardens is sure to excite, keep your energetic pups on close lead when walking around the estate. There’s no doubt that Beaverbrook is a rejuvenating break for guests and their friendly, furry side-kicks.

No. 15 by Guesthouse, Bath

No.15 by Guesthouse, in the centre of Britain’s historic Bath, offers a bespoke and quintessentially British stay. Dog ears will prick up when they hear that No.15 welcomes pets – and that it offers unlimited doggie treats from the pantry. Here, dogs are allowed in The Bar to join you for an evening tipple – perhaps a Fig Boulevardier or traditional beer – before a cosy night tucked up in bed. At No.15, a team of dog nannies are on hand to provide sitting and walking services (so that having your pets in tow doesn’t stop you from enjoying all the art galleries, antique stores, and restaurants Bath has to offer). However, Bath is also home to many dog-friendly pubs, parks, walks, and even cinemas for a fun-packed itinerary for both pet and owner. Some of our favourites include the American Museum and Gardens, and Hall & Woodhouse, an informal bar restaurant in the 1960s auction house.

Heckfield Place, Hampshire

This Georgian estate is a dog’s paradise. Think 438 acres of estate to bound through and wild lakes to swim in. It’s also a wonderful stay for owners too. Asides from the expansive, outdoor-focussed activity list, from fishing to badminton and yoga to meditation, you’ll find two restaurants and six different types of room, each furnished with natural materials and artisanal finishes. Whether you’re planning a quick break from the city (it’s only a one hour drive from London) or a longer staycation, this characterful manor has it all. For a start, you’ll be well fed at the Green Michelin-starred Hearth, where each dish is cooked on an open fire, and at the intimate Moon Bar. While dogs are welcome to stay along the East Corridor in the hotel’s garden facing rooms, this is subject to availability – be sure to book ahead and let the hotel team know.

The Fife Arms, Fife, Scotland

Hikes around Craig Leek, wild swimming, star-gazing, whisky tasting, and delicious pub-style dining are all on offer at this five-star stay in the Scottish Highlands. Each of the 46 bedrooms are divided into historical categories from “Royal Suites” to “Scottish Culture” and are filled with art and relics of Scottish heritage. In fact, the hotel houses over fourteen-thousand pieces of art, ranging from sculpture to frescoes, allowing you to immerse yourself in the history and culture of Scotland without ever having to leave your room. The hotel’s dog-friendly rooms are found on the first floor, and your pooches are in for a treat on arrival where a dog bowl, Fife Arms dog bed, treats, and a mysterious ‘turndown gift’ will be waiting for them to, quite literally, sniff out.

Treehouse, London

A favourite with London’s visitors and residents (dog in tow, or not), Treehouse brings a playful energy to London’s modern skyline with bright colours, sleek, wooden finishings, and plenty of greenery. Here, the Ulti-Mutt Staycation package is a must for dog-owners, taking your stay to new heights (literally). With this one-night package, you’ll have access to everything you might need, including a Settle dog bed, Lily’s Kitchen meal and treats, and access to the Treehouse Canine Concierge where you can book an hour-long professional dog walk for restless pups. All dogs are welcome in The Nest, the rooftop bar with panoramic views across London, too, for a scenic aperitif in friendly – and furry – company.

Kimpton Fitzroy London

Honouring the rule “if your pet fits through the door, we’ll welcome them in,” canines of all shapes, sizes, and breeds find a place at Kimpton Fitzroy. Lots of tail wagging is guaranteed at the hotel’s dog-friendly wine reception each night, where wine and beer are complimentary in the grand hotel bar from 5PM to 6PM. Upstairs, everything you (and your dog) will need for a night spent in comfort can be found in the bedrooms – bowls, beds, treats, the lot. Dog walking and dogsitting are available at The Hound Hut for guests with busy schedules and there are no additional charges for pets; scratches, treats, and plenty of attention are all complimentary.

Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London

A new offering at the iconic Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, the Pawfect Stays experience, brings five-star luxury to four-legged guests with pampering both at the hotel and across London’s best institutions. Teddy Maximus carriers, a favourite amongst spoiled pets, plus toy bones and pooch bags await in the room. The Mandarin Oriental also provides a dog bowl and bed to help keep packing light. But the fun doesn’t stay in the hotel suites. In fact, a ‘Pawfect Ideas’ newsletter by the concierge team gives guests – of all kinds – access to curated walking maps, the best pet-friendly areas of London, and even grooming services at Liberty London accompanied by a ‘Fruity Facial’, complimentary for hotel guests when booked with another treatment.

New Park Manor, New Forest

Perfectly located for families and their pets looking for long afternoon walks through the UK’s beautiful New Forest, New Park Manor is a great choice for every member of your entourage. Return from hours spent in the expansive, neighbouring outdoors to a special package including a bowl, bed, and treats – allowing dogs a well-deserved rest. There’s also plenty to enjoy on the hotel property, including a Waggy Tails Tea served with a puppaccino and an A La Bark Menu served straight from the hotel’s kitchen, making sure your pooch gets the pampering they deserve. And, just as New Park Manor is kitted out for furry-ones, there’s lots awaiting their owners too. With beautiful interiors (newly renovated by StudioJill design) to traditional roasts (with all the trimmings) and a Somadome spa, everyone will be looked after.

1 Hotel Mayfair

Canine companions are very welcome at 1 Hotel Mayfair; big or small, young or old. During your stay, you’ll have your pick of any of the hotel’s glamorously-minimal rooms and suites, as well as the lobby and Neighbours café for cute doggy dates. Rooms will house a Taylor & Tails dog bed upon your arrival, plus food and water bowls to make sure your pets are as comfortable and looked after as you are. In line with the hotel’s sustainable ethos, doggie products are carefully selected to ensure minimal environmental impact. The Beco bowls are made from 62 per cent plant-based materials, rope toys are made from hemp or a recycled cotton-blend hemp, and the soft toy is made from 60-80 per cent recycled content. If your furry one catches a liking to these innovative toys, their ears will prick up when they hear that all guests receive a £35 gift card to spend at Beco, allowing them to bring the comforts of the stay back home.
