Best Dog-Friendly Hotels In London

Exterior of Brown's Hotel

Brown’s, Mayfair

The latest dog-friendly hotel in London is none other than Mayfair’s sumptuous Brown’s, which is partnering with William Morris At Home to curate the perfect BFF Package (that’s ‘Best Furry Friends’, fyi). On arrival, four-legged friends are treated with Chef Director Adam Byatt’s ‘secret recipe’ dog biscuits and the William Morris At Home Dog Walkers Kit, which includes elevated walk essentials, such as hand cream (for you) and Paw & Nose Balm (for pups). Tuck into an ‘A La Bark’ meal at The Drawing Room and in Charlie’s Restaurant before midday before embarking on a walk around the luxurious neighbourhood, following the hotel’s exclusive Doggy Guide to Mayfair which offers tips on nearby pet-friendly attractions, including Mayfair’s best trees, lamp posts and mailboxes of interest for four legged connoisseurs. Then, rest your paws in your sumptuous room while your dog nestles into their cosy William Morris At Home dog bed. A dog’s life isn’t looking so bad…

Details: 33 Albemarle St, London W1S 4BP.


Claridge’s, Mayfair

Some furry friends deserve the very best – and Claridge’s is where to find it. A heady mix of glittering, gracious and always gorgeous, you’ll want to experience the best London has to offer with your best friend in tow – although he won’t be able to be pampered at the spa, unfortunately.

Details: Brook Street, London W1K 4HR.


South Place Hotel, Moorgate

This five-star hotel invites dogs of all shapes and sizes (and their owners) to reside in luxury – king-size dog bed included. Pets are welcome to cosy up in the majority of the hotel’s spaces (on a lead, of course), including the lively 3 Bar. The centrally located luxury haunt will also offer a toy, food and water bowls, and doggy treats for your four-legged companion.

Details: 3 South Pl, London EC2M 2AF.

The Apartments at the Sloane Club review

The Apartments by the Sloane Club, Sloane Square

If you know and love the reassuringly traditional Sloane Club, then you will be amazed by its apartments on Sloane Gardens, as will your dog, if they are travelling with you. In a nearby late 19th-century red brick and stucco building, a mix of studios, one and two-bed apartments, 18 in all, have been created for both long and short stays. With state-of-the-art streamlined, fully equipped Poggenpohl kitchens and hotel services (porter, concierge, room service, housekeeping), these apartments are for city slickers. Apartments by Sloane Club? More like Apartments by Beverly Hills.

Details: 15 Sloane Gardens, London SW1W 8EB.


The Portobello Hotel, Notting Hill

In room 16, Kate Moss and Johnny Depp filled the Victorian bath with champagne; Alice Cooper kept his snakes in it; and Tim Burton flooded the room by leaping from the bed into the bath and back. Time for your dog to make their mark? More than 40 years after it first opened, it has been given a new lease of life by Peter and Jessica Frankopan of A Curious Group of Hotels, which includes Cowley Manor, L’Hôtel in Paris and Canal House in Amsterdam. Today’s look encapsulates the hotel’s bohemian spirit and that famous bed and bath are still there, among many other items from the hotel’s decadent past. Rooms, however, have been brought forward and the decoration judiciously updated using bold colours. Even the minute attic rooms have been cleverly enlarged. At The Portobello today, past and present mix happily together.

Details: 22 Stanley Gardens, London W11 2NG.

The Sloane Club Review

The Sloane Club

The Sloane Club, Sloane Square

A London home from home for legions of well-heeled country folk, The Sloane Club is as cosmopolitan as cucumber sandwiches and as hip as tea on the vicarage lawn, but also as calm, elegant, well-run and reassuringly welcoming as you could wish to find. A private members’ club in a fabulous location, it’s open for overnight stays in its comfortable bedrooms and new, very smart bathrooms, plus spoiling treatments in The Sloane Club Spa. Tuck in to the best of British food with your fellow diners: squires from the shires, perhaps a covey of vicars and boho daughters dining with their dads. In the morning, enjoy a generous breakfast in the garden room and inspect the dozens of affectionate caricatures of toffs at rest and play – with their dogs and guns, their G&Ts, their gardeners and their village fêtes. You are one of them now.

Details: 52 Lower Sloane St, London SW1W 8BP.



Rosewood London, Holborn

St. Pancras Renaissance, St Pancras

If you and your four-legged friend are looking to stay in one of the most iconic buildings in London, then look no further. Opened in 1873 the St. Pancras Renaissance provides a beautiful and luxurious environment for your stay in the centre of King’s Cross, as well as being extremely welcoming to your furry companions. The hotel offers an exclusive ‘Pampered Pooch’ package which not only entails a stay in one of the Chambers Grand Junior Suite for you and your pet, they will also provide your dog with the use of a plush Charley Chau dog bed and blanket, and a top of the range MiaCara water and food bowl. Not to make you any more jealous, but they also give your pet a ‘Woof Box’ which will be filled to the brim with treats, toys and accessories, making them the most sophisticated pup when they attend their complimentary 2-hour training class with City Dog. You’ll also be able to carry on this trend when you get home with a membership to StyleTails, an online shop for pet lovers everywhere. Now I know what you’re thinking, how can you go somewhere to stay and your pet get better treatment than you? Don’t worry though you’ll be receiving breakfast in the exclusive Chambers Club to make up for it.
