Are there any restrictions?
Best Western pet-friendly hotels allow up to two domestic dogs in a rented room, with some hotels specifying a maximum size per animal (please check at time of booking). Other pet types such as cats, birds, monkeys, snakes, or other animals are allowed at the discretion of each property and require prior approval.
You might be charged a little more for each room with a pet or multiple pets. This is to cover the cost of the extra cleaning that might be required afterwards.
When making booking a pet-friendly hotel, we recommended that you call the hotel directly if you have specific pet related questions.
Tips for travelling with your pet
Once you arrive at the hotel take your pet on a long walk to stretch their legs, let off some energy and get used to their surroundings. It may take a little while for your pet to get comfortable in the new space but our staff will do their best to make them feel at home.
Don't forget to bring the following:
- Eating/drinking bowls
- Specialist food
- Pooper scooper/litter box/plastic bags
- Extra leash/collar
- Treats and Toys
