Where to go with your pooch to avoid fireworks on New Year's Eve. 7 dog friendly hotels.
If your idea of the perfect way to spend New Year's Eve is a comfy bed and a bowl full of treats then you will most likely be staying home for the celebrations.
There's just one problem with that for us and that's fireworks! The whizz bangers are very pretty and the humans enjoy seeing them but we get a little scared of the noise and some of our friends get so scared they make themselves very sick.
Our solution for the last few years has been to check into a hotel either in a quiet place where there will be no fireworks or in a London hotel which has excellent soundproofing where we can watch them but not hear them.
Here's a few of our favourites where you can still book in for this NYE.
Hoxton Hotels are super dog friendly in all their locations, providing us pooches with beds, bowls and treats in the room.
Dogs are also welcome to dine in the restaurants with their humans. We have stayed at Shoreditch, Southwark and Holborn and they all get the paws up from us.
There is an excellent (silent) view of London's main firework display from the Southwark Hotel.
If you would rather get out of London but not too far, Cambridge is a beautiful city and you can get there by train in just over an hour from St.Pancras station.
Pooches are very welcome at Hyatt Centric which is just outside the city centre with a Park & Ride bus link. We had beds and bowls in the room and dined with our humans in the restaurant.
You can read our full blog here and visit Hyatt to book your stay.
If you prefer more of a countryside vibe to see in 2023, then book yourself into Goodwood Hotel in West Sussex.
The hotel is on the Goodwood Estate with acres of grounds for walkies, cosy fires and lots of peace and quiet. We stayed on November 5th so can vouch for the lack of firework noise.
Pooches will get beds, bowls, treats and poop bags in the room. Pooches are welcome to dine in all 3 restaurants and a visit to The Kennels club is a must!
You can read all about our stay at Goodwood here and book your stay here.
For the most picturesque way to spend New Year's Eve, head to the Cotswolds and stay at The Lygon Arms in Broadway.
Pooches are treated like royalty here with comfy beds (which you can keep), bowls, treats galore and a doggie menu for dinner. There is so much to explore in the area, you might need to stay for a few nights.
