‘Totally paw-some!’ – Charlie
‘Woof-derful!’ – Max
Sherlock Bones and Frangelica Pooch proclaim their love for their two favourite dog-friendly hotels – Bailiffscourt Hotel & Spa in West Sussex and The Surrey in New York City
Sherlock gives Bailiffscourt a resounding two paws up
“Rolling fields, beaches, woods and fresh air – all this the moment you arrive for your holiday at Bailiffscourt Hotel & Spa in the Sussex countryside. Such a relief after the hectic pace of city life dodging cars, chasing squirrels and climbing the social ladder in the park.
Walking through the huge front door into reception I am treated like a king, greeted with a smile and a scratch between my ears – just how I like it – scrumptious biscuits, a bowl that’s just for me and my favourite guilty pleasure, a pig’s ear treat. So far, so good.
Afterwards, a fun game of fetch along the beach – Climping, I believe my humans called it – a splash in the sea and a romp through the hotel’s parkland – 32 acres all for us, can you believe it? Back in our suite after all that fresh air, I indulged in a well-deserved nap, toasty warm in front of the open fire. I overheard my man say that each of the hotel’s 39 suites and bedrooms welcome dogs – how clever of them – and with oak beams and four poster beds they are also romantic and comfortable for the humans. This is a good thing as hopefully it means my family will soon bring me back for another holiday.
Then it was my favourite time of the day – dinner. As everyone knows it’s only the best for me and my humans. While they tucked into something which smelled divine, I had my own gourmet meal – James WellBeloved organic chicken. The perfect food to keep my coat gleaming and my teeth sparkling white… not to mention, I’m watching my weight. And we all ate together in the lounge – so very civilised.
Clearly Bailiffscourt Hotel & Spa understands that dogs are the ultimate travel companion and not to be left behind at home.
Hoowwl…. I love this hotel!”

Frangelica Pooch – “The Surrey is simply paw-fect!”
“I will never forget the day I got my first passport – I had just turned two and it opened up the world! Since then, I travel everywhere with my lady and it’s only the best for us. Where is my favourite place to travel? Why New York, of course – the place to see and be seen, and where better to strut my stuff than The Surrey hotel. On the Upper East Side, it’s where all the cool dogs go and with the launch of their new Posh Pets Programme, I’m never more than a moment away from a chic cut and blow dry or a gourmet meal. Perfect before a night on the town.
It all starts when my lady and I arrive in our suite – there, in pride of place, my Surrey monogrammed dog bed – because not just any old bed will do – a nutritious meal and a sparkling water bowl. After all, just because you’re on holiday doesn’t mean you have to compromise on style and service.
For those essential holiday indulgences, the five-biscuit gift box gets my tail wagging, but my favourite has to be the in-room doggie mini-bar, full of all-natural goodies from Bocce’s Bakery and the perfect snack after a long walk through nearby Central Park.
My favourite moment from my stay at The Surrey? Only in the Big Apple do they have a **Director of Pet Relations - there for my every bark and woof, who arranged dinner at a pet-friendly restaurant for us – giving me the chance to give my latest diamanté collar an airing. My new BF, the DOPR** was also fountain of knowledge, on the best dog walks in the city, and the best shops to hit, to work off that mini-bar snacking.
The Surrey… all the little luxuries that today’s stylish traveller expects and deserves. Bow wow wow!”
