A room for Lupo? Extravagant pet services at London hotels.

Red Carnation VIP Service

It has emerged that the Queen banned the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s beloved dog Lupo from Sandringham for the Royal festive celebrations.  The cocker spaniel, who featured in the couple’s official family portrait to introduce baby George to the world, was instead left with Kate’s parents in Berkshire.

But while the Queen may have been unwilling to welcome any new dogs, London has several pet-friendly hotels.  Here’s our rundown of some hotels which offer especially extravagant services for dogs and cats.

Turndown treats at The Rubens at the Palace

Red Carnation hotels are renowned for their pet-friendly nature and Rubens at the Palace, the closest hotel in London to Buckingham Palace, is no exception.  Here, every detail has been thought of.  Your pet gets his or her own bathrobe and bed.  There’s a grooming service in case they want a bit of pampering while you’re at the spa.  And just as you get chocolates on your pillow at turndown, they get their own turndown treat.  The hotel will also arrange dog sitting or walking for you if you’re out and about seeing the sights of London.

A boutique bed and a bone at The Bermondsey Square Hotel

Situated on Tower Bridge Road, The Bermondsey Square Hotel welcomes your four-legged friends with their own pet bed in your room.  You’ll also find they get a specially wrapped bone when they arrive along with some treats to see them through their stay

Their own menu at The W

It’s in the perfect position in Leicester Square for any glitzy movie premieres, but The W also rolls out the red carpet for your pet, welcoming dogs that weigh under 40lbs.  They get their own bed as well as access to room service snacks from the woof and meow menu.  The hotel will even arrange pet birthday cakes for that special day.

A pet butler at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel

Small and medium sized dogs are welcome at the Gothic beauty St Pancras Renaissance Hotel.  If you’re staying in The Chambers, the butler-serviced suites, you’ll find your butler will be more than happy to extend their services to dog walking.  Your pet will also get their own bed, water bowl and some treats.

Those little touches at the Montague on the Gardens

It’s obvious how much dogs are appreciated as soon as you enter the Montague on the Gardens.  There’s a statuette of a cute dog to welcome you and the cushions in the bar all have canine motifs on them.  The hotel promises to make your pet feel as special as you do.

They’re all hotels which understand that your pet is part of your family and you don’t want to leave them behind.  Whichever one you choose, you’ll find plenty to do in the capital with your pet, from enjoying long walks in London’s beautiful parks to treating your dog to some pampering in one of the city’s dog grooming parlours or indulging in some retail therapy by choosing a new purchase from a pet boutique.  There’ll be lots of tail wagging or purring as your pet will enjoy their stay as much as you do.
