Hi dog pals,
Me & Hum went to London at the weekend and I decided a couple of Dog Blog reviews might be in order.
Our first stop was at Flynns Townhouse. Flynns is owned and run by the lovely James who comes from Ireland like Hum so she was really happy to hear his accent and talk about Irish stuff.
James and his wife Joanalie have only been running Flynns for a year and have really made it into a hidden gem Hum said…
The décor was lovely and Hum approved of it a lot and guess what I did too as it matched my chosen blankie!
Not that I needed my own blankie dog friends ‘cos at Flynns we dogs have provisions – in fact I had 2 bowls and an absolutely beautiful golden quiltie just for me!!!
There is Flynns Pub & Kitchen which serves proper Irish food and then the rooms – Flynns Townhouse.
When we arrived Ninder welcomed us and even though he is scared of dogs, he gave me a cuddle and said I was OK ‘cos I is cute.
Ninder carried Hum’s bag and took us to our room. Now Hum got very excited and was MOST impressed. You see to get to the rooms you have to go through a little outside seating area with a water feature and through a door with a special code to put in and then up a metal staircase which was really quite fun!
When Hum’s little granddaughter came to visit she thought it was like a secret doorway to a magic staircase with a seating area where fairies might live and it was just specially for her Granny H 😉
The room was big and bright – dual aspect apparently (means windows at 2 sides of the room dog pals). I checked out my beautiful golden quiltie and Ninder insisted on getting me water as we was so hot after our journey on the underground train.
Hum was VERY happy with the room. Dressing table with powerpoint and mirror; tea & coffee with biscuits; fluffy towels; bar of soap; rainshower (yeah she loves those) and quality toiletries. No face flannel for her or treats for me but everything else was pretty perfect.
Ninder had told us where to go for a walk and James came to meet Hum and me in the bar area. He told us other good places to visit and reminisced with Hum about Ireland and told us about when dogs attending Crufts came to stay at Flynns and all set each other off barking in the night 😉
We had a walk to Ravenscourt Park which they recommended and it was lovely. Lots of walks, a lake and a special dog exercise area!
We didn’t have dinner at Flynns but Hum and family had teas and coffees late evening and agreed that everything was good quality and beautifully presented.
We slept very well at Flynns – Hum on her big bed, a fan provided to keep us cool and me on my special golden quiltie.
Hum noted how quiet it was considering we was in London on quite a busy road.
In the morning after Hum had her rainshower, coffee and caught up on the news, it was back to the park before breakfast.
What a treat breakfast was! Joanalie served us beautifully presented poached eggs on her home-made soda bread! How good was that!!! It was totally, absolutely delicious!! And Hum was again in Irish reminiscing heaven 😉
So do bring your Humans to Flynns dog pals. You get a fantastic welcome, beautiful accommodation and excellent food.
Defo one to recommend and I do hope I can stay again sometime 🙂
