Who hasn’t dreamed of living full-time in a lavish hotel with decadent feather pillows, 24-hour room service and attentive staff?

For some lucky animals that dream is a reality, with dogs, cats, peacocks and even a water buffalo kept as pets by hotel staff around the world.

Animal lovers on holiday can look forward being greeted in reception by some of their favourite pets, making the following hotels their perfect vacation stay.

Camber Sands

Brock the Norfolk terrier belongs to Harry Cragoe, owner of The Gallivant, a hotel and restaurant opposite Camber sands.

Nearby day trips include the Romney salt marshes, Dungeness, the quintessentially English town of Rye and the Kentish Weald villages.


Oliver Beckington is one of the most loved members of the team at Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire.

Oliver, a black Labrador, often greets guests on arrival and is typically to be found pottering around the reception area, taking long walks across the Estate or enjoying a well-deserved snooze on his beanbag in front of the fireplace.

Beckington also enjoys sharing countryside walks across the Estate with his four-legged friends and showing them around his favourite spots on the Estate.


Waggers a miniature chocolate labradoodle lives at Staybridge Suites London, a 93-suite hotel located in the Albert Embankment.

The team depends on Waggers to help welcome and check in guests on arrival and he has even had one-to-one training for the role.

Phuket, Thailand

The newly-opened Keemala, a luxury hotel in the coastal town of Phuket in Thailand, has two resident water buffaloes who help to keep the lawns trim.

The animals were rescued and have been staying with staff ever since.

Warwick castle

Warwick castle, where guests can stay overnight in a tower suite, a glamping lodge or medieval tent, is home to 40 pet peacocks.

Over the summer a brood of peacocks have been born at the Castle.

Four times each day the peacock family enjoy a feast of mealworms, with the occasional salad leaf as a treat.


Nearly four years ago, luxury five star hotel the Castille Paris decided to adopt a Chartreux called Heliot to watch over the property.

Always happy to be cuddled all day, Heliot often climbs on the reception desk to say hello to the clients.


Boon the dog, now 12 years old, inspired the name of the Boon Hotel & Spa in California.

According to staff, Boon spends his days lying by the poolside, rolling in the grass, greeting guests and leading them to reception.
