    5 star review  My precious Lulu (a small Yorkie) has just spent a month at The Durban Dog Hotel in Hillcrest. I cannot thank Sonseirai and Candice enough for looking so well after my precious pooch! If anybody ever wants peace of mind and a home a way from home for their pooches - this is where to send them. DURBAN DOG HOTEL YOU ROCK! Lulu can't wait to go back!

    5 star review  I had to go out of town for work and did not want to leave my 5 month old Great Dane puppy (Lysander) in a kennel for a week. I'm so glad I found DDH! Sonseirai and Candice were amazing and ensured my pup had a fabulous vacation while I was away 🙂 They sent regular photos and text message updates of all the fun Lysander was having, were extremely accommodating of his special dietary needs, took him to the park, gave him plenty of cuddles, and socialized him with other the doggy guests. They even checked up on Lysander and how he was doing after I brought him home. I will definitely be bringing him back--Thank you!

    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  If I could gove you 10 stars I would ♡ You ladies are incredible! Not only did you take the stress of us during the immigration process but off our two little babies too! I cannot believe the change in our two girls. Particularly Layla, you have an amazing set up and such a special gift! Thank you for everything Candice and sonseirai! You really did make the transition from home a hassle free and enjoyable one for our dogs! Highly recommend you to anyone!

    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.
