• Moving house
• Have guests staying at your home that allergic to your pet
• Getting home improvements done
• You are in hospital or you are recovering from illness

The construction of our kennels and cat suites also means your pet can’t see their neighbours so you don’t have to worry about your pet getting intimidated or stressed by their neighbours

Our facility consists of three buildings in close proximity to each other which are connected by a series of walkways but far enough away from each other to limit stress.

Our dog hotel consists of 52 suites, our cat hotel has 18 suites. Our dog hotel is extremely popular and we recommend booking a minimum of three months before your departure date.
