My Experience of Dog Friendly Hotels in the UK
Having recently been together UK with a dog, it seems the UK is far ahead of Ireland in this respect. Bars and Restaurants are very dog friendly, and you can bring your dog inside, unlike Ireland where you have to sit outside in the cold.
Hotels were just as accommodating. Searching on Booking.com allowed you to select a ‘Pets Welcome’ option. This showed all hotels who allowed pets inside. Next, if you read the reviews you can isolate hotels were past reviews mention excellent dog friendly experiences at that hotel.
This blog post outlines some of the best dog friendly hotels along the south coast of the UK.
The Clock House B&B, Marnhull, Dorset
When looking for
Seeing testimonials and reviews like this is very reassuring – so we booked the Clock House B&B by phone and it was amazing. The B&B is located in Marnhull in Dorset located on the River Stour 3 miles (4.8 km) north of the small town of Sturminster Newton. There are Lovely surroundings in Marnhull with lots of walks, ideal if like me you like photography!
More like a Hotel than a B&B
It is the most wonderful B&B I have ever been in. More like a hotel than B&B.
When we arrived we had an Amazing welcome and we were treated to Tea on the terrace. We were then shown to our beautifully appointed room which had doors to the terrace and garden area. This was ideal for the dog friendly nature, as when nature calls you just have to open the doors of your patio for your pooch and you don’t disturb any other guests. The room also had a Fantastic shower and bathroom with great products and fluffy towels. You are guaranteed the best ever sleep here. The beds are so comfortable!
Breakfast at the Clock House B&B is an experience, just continental breakfast but it was more than enough for us. Plenty of fresh fruit, muesli, toast and lovely boiled eggs – the perfect setup for a perfect day exploring Dorset. The service is 10/10. We really looked forward to breakfast, it was so special.
The Clock House is an amazing property with amazing staff. It is a very dog friendly hotel! We have actually stayed here twice, 2018 and 2019 and it was fantastic.
Thanks to Chris, Mella and Julie and of course the canine watchdogs Ben and Tizzy for two Wonderful and memorable stays.

Oscars Lodge Hotel, Torquay, Devon
When researching Dog-Friendly Hotels to stay in Torquay in Devon, we came across one particular hotel which seemed to have a wow factor when it came to dog friendliness. Again, great reviews on Booking.com in regards to dog friendliness so Oscars Lodge B&B was the one we booked.
It ticked all the boxes we were looking for: a good value,
On arrival, we were greeted by Amy and Richard, the young couple who run Oscars Lodge. They were so friendly and also so kind to our 15-year-old Springer Frieda. On arrival, there were chocolates on the bed for us and doggie treats for Frieda (which she quickly became accustomed to)…. such a nice touch.
The room was beautifully decorated with a Chanel / Breakfast at Tiffany’s style. The bed was so comfortable and a good nights sleep was guaranteed. The WiFi was perfect and this is something which some major hotels can’t get right. Tea and coffee facilities were available and in plentiful supply.
Amy and Richard could not do enough for us. It was the perfect stay.

The Royal Hotel, Eastbourne, East Sussex
The rooms at the Royal are really well appointed and very comfortable. The bathrooms are clean with excellent showers. Breakfast at the Royal is simple but so good. Eddie has homemade muesli, yogurt and a coffee which will get you started for the day. The only thing to be aware of is that the parking in Eastbourne is ticketed. The Royal Hotel provides you with a ticket for the day / duration of your stay… All you need to do is find a car park space.
It is an extremely dog-friendly hotel. We were told that there are many regulars who always book the same rooms because their dogs really like that hotel room.
If you want to enjoy this area of East Sussex with your dog, then a stay at the Royal is highly recommended!
Note, If you are booking, book on the hotels official website for the best rates. Probably best to give Eddie a call and check the availability.
