    5 star review  We have sent our 2 year old Labrador Bear on holiday several times at The Durban Dog Hotel. Bear absolutely loves it. Bear goes for walk,swims, play games etc. We get daily photos of him. And it really puts my nerves at ease that he is well looked after. The staff at The Durban Dog Hotel are very friendly and helpful. Thank you for doing a great job looking after my Bear.���

    5 star review  I took my puppy Zara there from 10 weeks old as I did not want to leave her alone at home. Best decision l have ever made. Zara was made to feel at home and was looked after so well. Zara is now six months old still goes to doggie daycare on occasions and when we go away l know Zara is in the best care. The dogs are not in cages but have the run of a beautiful garden with lots to do during tge day and also get taken for a walk to the park. Thank you so much for looking after Zara so well.

    5 star review  I can't thank Sonseirai and Candice enough for the love and care they shower on my fur baby when he's at the hotel!! He has an absolute blast and is completely exhausted when he gets home �. He has the time of his life and is spoilt rotten! You are all so amazing � and we're at complete ease when he's with you guys. Thank you so much for providing a home away from home �. You guys totally rock �
