Hello again dog pals,
Hum & Glenn took me to stay at the dog friendly Hart’s Hotel in Nottingham on Friday 26th January @HartsNottingham .
They were attending something called a Burn’s Night Supper where apparently a human reads a poem out to a Haggis and then all the other humans eat the haggis and have a party. Humans are a funny sort indeed!
Anyway, it meant I got to stay at the lovely Hart’s Hotel overnight so I was a happy little dog. I has stayed at Hart’s before so it was good to see if it was as good as the last visit.
Well I can tell you my friends – it was as good as last time and even a little better as there was now somewhere I could have breakfast with my Hum and Glenn!
You will get a great welcome at Hart’s Hotel. All the staff make a huge fuss of us four-legs and I got lots of cuddles from Kelly on reception.
We had one of the Garden Rooms – there are 6 of these and they all open onto your own little patio and an enclosed garden which overlooks The Park (posh bit of Nottingham apparently). The garden is lovely and when we arrived the weather was good so I got to explore and play ball. I was the only dog staying I think so I had the whole garden to myself!!!
Hum rated the room extremely highly – beautifully decorated; power points and light by a desk for hair & make-up; full length mirror; good quality toiletries including soap and a face flannel provided; super fluffy pillows but best of all for her proper coffee with a cafetiere and fresh milk in the fridge!
I was disappointed that nothing was provided for me at Hart’s Hotel. I think it would be a nice idea if they provided a bed and bowls (could even support local suppliers) and some home-made biscuits from Hambleton Bakery might be something they could start producing……just an idea…..would make it extra special….
Anyway the room was very comfy and Hum had brought my Rovernighter bed and my blankie so it was fine.
I wasn’t allowed to go to the Burn’s Night Supper but Kelly said she would check I was OK and as Hum had given me the big grown up task of looking after the room, I took my responsibility seriously and was a very good girl indeed.
When Glenn & Hum got back, they had brought me some delicious steak from the dinner (I didn’t fancy the haggis) and I was allowed to go and sit in the foyer with the comfy sofas by the fire which was lovely.
This was also where we were served our breakfast. We could have had it as room service in the room but it was too wet to sit on our patio so the lovely staff brought it to the foyer so I could enjoy it too. I must say the food is super good at Hart’s Hotel!
You get exceptionally cooked scrambled eggs; locally sourced bacon & sausage and the bread is from Hambleton Bakery @HambletonBakery.
So how do I rate Hart’s Hotel this time? Well it was better than last time as although dogs are not allowed into the bar or restaurant, we can sit and have a meal or refreshments with our humans in the foyer.
However – I do think some nice goodies provided for dogs in the room would be very welcome and make it a 5 star place to stay!
