Treat Pawself: Our Pick of Australia's Top Dog-Friendly LUXURY Hotels
Our dogs are our babies and as such, we want them to experience life with us. When we holiday, we want our Facebook plastered with images of our cheeky cavoodle grinning up at us on the beach in North Queensland, or our spoilt sauso lazing in the 1500 TC hotel sheets.
At St Argo HQ, we have done the research for you to ensure you can take your puppy on holidays with you, 5 star.
We have compiled a list of our pick of luxury hotels across the continent, that not only accommodate our doggy-vacay desires, but encourage them!
1. Zagame's House ~ Carlton (4 Star)
New GM, who dis? Newly appointed GM (and avid dog lover), Adam Taloni, has just announced the boutique hotel (which is located conveniently on Lygon Street) is completely fur-friendly.
Dogs, sloths, unicorns and quokkas are all welcome. The in-room dog service includes a 'treat-yo-fur-baby' menu, free 'furry movie of the month' and exclusive access to dog-walking and grooming services.
The Cost: $140 extra per stay
2. Ovolo Hotel (Laneways) ~ Melbourne CBD (4 Star)
Looking for V.I.P treatment for your pooch? Look no further. OVOLO has just announced that ALL hotels across Australia and Hong Kong are dog-friendly. This means your pup can stay with you in complete 5-star luxury. All pet-friendly rooms are complete with a super-plush dog bed, dog bowls and a designer 'doggy bag' with treatos, toys and poop bags.
The Cost: $80 extra per stay.
3. The Langham ~ Sydney CBD (5 Star)
There's something outrageously decadent about checking in to The Langham Sydney, with dog on toe. There's something even more outrageously decadent about having a pooch-specific turn-down service where your spoilt little fur baby is brought a plush pink velvet bed and midnight snacks and Langham pink bowls.
Who's kidding, we're sold.
The Cost: $120 extra per stay.
4. Marriott Pier One ~ Walsh Bay (Right under the Harbour Bridge!) (4 Star)
Treat your doggo to the stunning views of the Sydney Harbour from the comfort of your hotel room. Can you dine with your pup? Yep. Can you grab a drink at the bar with your pup? Yep. Luxury bedding and bar snacks for your pup? Duh...
The Cost: $90 extra per stay.
5. The Hughenden ~ Woollahra (4 Star)
This boutique hotel really embraces the dog lifestyle. High Tea Dog Events, Pet-Friendly dining, Doggie Day Spa and Dog walking services are all available.
What's the best part? The stunning Centennial Parklands are just a few steps away.
6. The Westin ~ Brisbane CBD (5 Star)
'Meet me at the W' says your Frenchie after a leisurely stroll through South Bank.
The W is a brand new hotel. It's very pet inclusive and very damn cool.
The Cost: $50 extra per stay + one-off $150 cleaning fee.
7. Clovelly Estate ~ Montville (5 Star)
This location boasts a whole other level of luxury. Get away from the crowds and find tranquillity way up in the hinterlands. Just inland of the Sunshine Coast you will find Clovelly Estate. It is peaceful, opulent and dog-friendly. Book your stay with dog-centric inclusions such as a pillowy bed, dog lead, food bowls and a long-lasting doggy bone.
The Cost: Varies
8. Sarayi ~ Palm Cove (4 Star)
What.a.find. There are plenty of beautiful resort in far north Queensland, but Sarayi is just about the only one which offers luxury and dog-friendly facilities.
We don't need to sell you on the location (walk 5 steps and you've got your feet in the Pacific) and when you see the hotel we won't need to sell you on that either.
What we will say is this: Sarayi hotel doesn't just accept dogs on premises, they encourage it.
The Cost: FREE
9. Hilton ~ Adelaide CBD (5 Star)
It's the HILTON, need we say more?
The Cost: $500 hold on credit card refundable if no damage is done or cleaning needed. Pups under 35kg only.
10. Ovolo Nishi ~ New Acton Precinct (5 Star)
Another one in the Ovolo chain. We love this hotel because it is deeply sophisticated.
We should also add it is super on-trend, being the only HOTEL in the nation's capital that is pet-friendly.
The Cost: Varies
