    5 star review  I am so impressed with The Durban Dog Hotel! My fur-babies were treated better than at home (and they proper spoilt at home) The care and love they get at the hotel is by far the best I have ever experienced from a 'kennel'. I love the personal touch of sending me videos/messages, so I am kept updated on their wellbeing all the time as well. Thank you! You are now my only choice for alternative care for my special kids.

    5 star review  You know when you think twice about going on holiday, because you just can't imagine leaving your furbaby behind� Well, that was me... But seeing that it was my 40th birthday and all I wanted was to take my parents with me to Cape Town to see my brother, I just had to make a plan. I found The Durban Dog Hotel on Facebook and was impressed with how the animals are treated... Just like at home... No kennels, no cold cement floors, no isolation. Now, my little dachshund Bugsy isn't the most social, but Sonseirai & Candice just knew how to make him come out of his shell & yes...even enjoy himself!!! With daily WhatsApp updates (pics&videos), I was totally at ease and could enjoy my family time to the utmost. Thank you The Durban Dog Hotel for treating Bugsy like he was one of your own. There is no other place I will entrust my Bugsy to if we have to go away again�

    5 star review  Harvey, my long haired Chihuahua, had the time of his life. He is usually not too sociable, but it looks as if he just luuuuved the new friends made.
