Editor’s choice: 2016 Dog-friendly Hotels

dog-friendly hotels are all about making our four-legged friend as comfortable during their stay as you are during yours. we believe canine hotels should preserve the air of luxury too – so that pet owners get the chance to relax and unwind as much as their furry loved ones. prince hall in spectacular dartmoor has welcome biscuits at reception for dogs. bowls and treats are left in the rooms of the falcondale, ceredigion, which has ample ground for walks. blagdon manor, devon, has friendly resident labradors to greet guests of two-legged and four-legged varieties.
