    5 star review  The most wonderful, easy, friendly, Fun! place for doggies to go on holiday! Loving and easygoing most comfortable holiday ever. (You even get to sleep on a human bed if you want to) Our doggies didn't want to come home! We had to drag them away. Heaven on earth for dogs! Thanks and more thanks!

    5 star review  From the start the Durban Dog hotel has been nothing but exceptional!! From Hannah being so efficient and accomadating with booking and updates to Candice, Sons and Gert being so welcoming to us and our pooches on arrival. They are an extremely well educated and loving group of staff/owners and I could not have felt more comfortable leaving my dogs with them! My dogs being ridge back cross rescues got all the attention they needed with amazing long pack walks, swimming and great interaction with many many new friends! Always under the watchfull eyes of staff, they just had the best time a dog could have... infact neither if them wanted to leave! Ha ha. We so so appreciate the facility of Durban Dog hotel, and have been blown away at what an amazing time our dogs had! We have already booked them in for another 2 stays in April. I cannot reccomend the Durban Dog hotel more and we cannot thank you enough! For dog owners like myself it's so great to know that I can leave my doggies at such a 5 star place and know they are in the best hands!!
