    5 star review  Wow!!! What an amazing place! I am so grateful to Sonseirai and her team. It was so refreshing to see my dog bounding across the property with such freedom and joy. They have taken the best care of him! No other place compares. This is how dogs should be looked after. �

    5 star review  Literally a home from home for dogs. I don’t think I can express how amazing Candice & Sonseirai are.My dogs stayed with them for 3 months and from the daily updates they loved every minute. I can say without a doubt that I would never leave my dogs with anyone else.

    5 star review  My boys love Candice, Sons and Gert and so do I. It makes leaving them there so much easier for a mom like me. I know that 24hrs a day my boys are getting the best care and attention I could ask for! Thanks ladies and Gert for your dedication and unending love that you give to my boys and every other guest at the hotel and day care! I don’t know what I would do without you!

    5 star review  I would like to thank Candice and her team for taking such good care of Roxy during the 1 month holiday she spent with you. Roxy was treated like royalty and was very spoilt. She came back home so relaxed. Thank you again for taking such good care of her. We could relax during our holiday knowing that she was in good hands with the regular updates we used to get. Roxy will be back again at the dog hotel. #lovedogs#durbandoghotel

    5 star review  Our 13 year old lab, Jasmine had just lost her brother and had never been alone. We were so excited when we found the Durban Dog Hotel, it meant that Jasmine would have loads of company while we were away. Candice, Sonseirai and their team were absolutely phenominal and took such great care of our furbaby. My kids especially loved getting the daily updates and pics to see what Jas was up to. The only downside is that we cant go on holiday to the DDH as well 🤣. I cannot sing the Durban Dog Hotels praises enough - thank you for looking after Jas so well.
