The Most Dog Friendly Hotel In The UK

Thought spa breaks were just for humans? Think again as this UK hotel gives owners the chance to treat themselves and their pets to a luxury getaway with complete pet pampering service.

The Lawrence Hotel offers the perfect retreat for dogs and their humans ready for some rest and relaxation. From pup-icures to pawsecco, the hotel aims to take even the most dog-eared pets from ruff to ravishing in just one night!

The Grade II listed hotel, located in Burnley, not only offers in-house spa services for their human guests, including massages, facials and pedicures all from the comfort of their hotel suite, but for their canine companions too.  While guests get the five star treatment during their stay, their furry friends can be whisked away for a pampering all of their own. Each lucky pup can get a curly blow and their nails done courtesy of local dog-grooming services, all of which the hotel takes care of - perfect for after muddy walks in the countryside.

The pampering doesn’t end there - as owners slip into their fluffy gown and slippers, pups get the opportunity to wind down with mini dressing gown and their own personal dog towel, where they can also be hand dried for a completely fluffy finish. Canine guests will even have a doggy bed all of their own to relax and chill out after a long day of walkies.

Once the evening comes, guests will relax with a drink by the hotel’s honesty bar while their pooch sips on a well-earned bottle of pawsecco.

For any revellers looking to make a night of it, humans can hit the town and explore the wealth of foodie favourites and localThe Most Dog Friendly Hotel In The UK bars, all whilst leaving their weary pooches in the safe hands of the hotel. Pets of all shapes and sizes can sleep easy with The Lawrence’s own doggy sitting service; with baby monitors designed for dogs set up by the hotel so visitors can stay out as late as they like with the peace of mind that the staff are looking out for their precious pooch. Or extra-friendly pups can enjoy a social life of their own on playdates with the hotel’s resident sprocker spaniel, Hetti.

However, for those owners who just can’t bear the thought of leaving their beloved bow-wows behind for the evening, there’s the on-site Courtyard Restaurant in the hotel who offer can a delicious three course meal fit for humans, as well as a dog’s dinner set to impress even the poshest of pooches.

Michael Huckerby, owner of The Lawrence Hotel, and dog-father to sprocker, Hetti said “We’ve always been dog friendly, as I’m a dog owner myself so Hetti is often around the hotel and loves making friends with the locals. With our spa treatments being so popular, it made perfect sense to extend this to furry guests too! There’s nothing better than coming in from a long walk in the country to a pamper session and an evening of relaxation so why should the dogs miss out?’’

‘‘With so much open space and great walks in the area it’s the perfect getaway for dogs and their owners looking for a destination hotel in the UK. We want to offer a bespoke experience for all our visitors and so when it comes to pet requests we’re always more than happy to accomodate!”
