The Ned

What’s not to love about The Ned? The five-star hotel is located a short walk from several of London’s best attractions; it’s stunning on the inside and out, has 10 incredible onsite restaurants plus 17 bars, and it’s dog-friendly!

Created in 2017, The Ned sits in the former Midland Bank Headquarters, originally designed by Edwin ‘Ned’ Lutyens in 1924. A team worked tirelessly for five years to repurpose the iconic building and bring it up to date – though they did more than that. The hotel is a masterpiece inside and out.

Welcoming dogs up to 22lbs, The Ned is perfect for guests who want to take their small to medium-sized pooches away to the City but don’t want to compromise on luxury. Choose from 250 bedrooms, which range in size – from intimate to large-scale suites – all with a nod to 1920s glamour.

nhow London

Just off City Road, you’ll discover a green ‘n’ that announces the entrance to nhow London – but don’t be caught out by this hotel’s unassuming interior. Inside, colour pops and texture captivate, having been pulled together by the colourful minds of architecture and interiors studio, Project Orange.

Unlike many pet-friendly hotels, size doesn’t matter at nhow, who welcome cats and dogs regardless of whether they are large or small! To ensure all their guests are happy (including your furry companion), nhow have special pet rooms that are fully tailored and equipped for you and your pooch or feline.

In your room, your pet will have its own dreamy bed, along with water and food bowls. Upon check-in, you’ll receive nhow’s pawformation booklet, which contains everything you need to know to ensure your pet has the perfect stay.

What we love most about nhow, is that they will also supply you with the best tips for nearby hotspots for visiting with your furry friend – like wonderful parks, spots for chilling, and dog-friendly bars and restaurants across London. Your pet will feel like a VIP!

Pan Pacific London

You’ll find the gorgeous Pan Pacific in the beating heart of the City, a short walk from The Tower of London, St. Paul’s Cathedral, and London Liverpool Street Station. The graceful and luxuriant hotel features top-notch dining amenities and room options, but we love it because of how welcoming it is to our four-legged friends.

The pet-loving hotel embraces both curious canines and fabulous felines, allowing you and your pet to enjoy a refined escape in the City to relax and explore the locale.

Pan Pacific has thought of everything to make your dog or cat’s stay a top-notch experience, and even have a Pet Brochure for worrisome pet-parents!

Well-behaved animals on a lead or in a carrier may explore the hotel in designated areas – except for the Wellbeing floor, meeting rooms, and during Afternoon Tea service in The Orchid Lounge. Guide dogs are welcome in all the hotel’s areas.
