All pets are welcome to stay at Port Light Hotel, especially dogs! The Hotel boasts an award for being "the most pet friendly hotel in the UK".
Pets can stay free of charge and are welcome in all areas of the hotel - it is asked that dogs are on leads at all times.
A pet food fridge is situated in the residents' hallway and a dog wash is outside the building. Large trays are in all the rooms in which to place food bowls. It is requested that pets are kept off the furniture in the bedrooms and bar area.
A gate from the hotel garden leads directly onto National Trust fields where dogs can run free. The hotel is truly a haven for dog walkers as walks extend for miles both along the South West Coast Path and also many inland walks.
Most of the beaches in the surrounding area are dog friendly for most of the year.
