Dog-friendly hotels in the UK


Sometimes there’s just nothing like a good city break, whether for business or pleasure. And why wouldn’t you want to bring your furry best friend with you! Explore our range of dog-friendly hotels in some of the UK’s buzzing cities and towns both you and your four-legged pal will love. 


Whether you are after a luxury stay or a budget option, most hotels with dogs will charge you just a small fee at most, and they normally keep a section of dog-friendly rooms just for you. Occasionally, they will offer special extras like cosy dog beds and dog bowls. 


Certain hotels will even allow well-behaved dogs to be left in the room for short periods of time, though individual policies may vary. Many will also welcome dogs into their dining room, so you needn’t miss out on breakfast. 





Best dog-friendly cities:


Some cities are more pup-friendly than others, though it’s normally possible to find pubs and restaurants that allow dogs almost anywhere these days. We especially favour cities that have good access to green spaces to give your dog some exercise, and are known for having a range of eateries that accept dogs. 



The capital has some of the best hotels and attractions in the country, but there’s also plenty for dogs in this sprawling metropolis.  Most pubs and restaurants welcome dogs, there’s a wealth of green spaces and they travel free on public transport.



There’s an abundance of things to do in Edinburgh as well as being a good starting point to explore the rest of the country. It’s also incredibly walkable, so easy to traverse and of course, many places to go that accept dogs. Just look for the signs that say ‘dugs welcome’.



What puppy is happier than running around on the beach? Brighton is well-known for being great for dogs with a large selection of restaurants, pubs and bars that are pet-friendly. 



Great days out abound in Newcastle, with plenty to do indoors and outdoors for those travelling with dogs. Many pubs and restaurants open their doors for our four-legged friends, as well as beaches, parks and hotels.




A green city with plenty of parks, woodlands and nature reserves to keep you and your dog occupied. It’s also got some great places to eat and drink and more often than not these are dog friendly, so you won't be short of places to go and things to do.
