Our Archie got so stressed at previous kennels and we were scared to leave him again.  But this time he came back a very happy dog so thank you Siobhan. Great service, very friendly and a lovely home for any dog. 

Chris and Bill, Colchester

Our two little dogs had a wonderful time with Siobhan and her family. It is great to have finally found a dog hotel that treats the dogs as part of the family just like we do. I will absolutely be using The Small Dog Hotel again as we have been really pleased with the service provided. Thanks again and see you soon.

Just to say how pleased we were to find the Small dog hotel for our dog, Freddie. Siobhan is extremely welcoming and made Freddie feel at home. He had a lovely few days there whilst we were away and it is great to know that he was well looked after. We will definitely book him in again and would recommend it!

Hi Siobhan,
She is back with me this morning...she gave me her normal big hello!
She did miss both of you, lovely to know she had enjoyed her holiday
and the hotel was of the highest standard...and if her elderly 'parents'
decide on another trip?
Meantime our thanks for your care of our Annie,
Stay well
Elizabeth Debenham, Great Horkesley

Thank you Siobhan,


That’s a firm booking then. And as Leo enjoyed staying with you, we’re more than happy to bring him back year after year. 

Other times we have been away and left him with friends, when we have picked him up and taken him home all he did was sulk for hours. However when we picked him up from you, he didn’t sulk at all.

Kind regards Matthew
