Brilliant secure paddock, my dogs loved running around. Water available and tennis balls, great value for money. I also got the pleasure of looking around the overnight accommodation… wouldn’t hesitate to book my dogs in overnight. Thank you… we’ll be back.

Fantastic hotel for our two girls. They loved it and were even groomed for our return, the best and only place we will consider again.

What an amazing place Barton Lodge Luxury Pet Hotel is. The location is just perfect its set in a secured woodland. Buddy got to watch TV in the comfort of his very own heated Den on a very special bed when he wasn't bouncing around with his new friends. Neil is a very kind hearted gentlemen who has created the perfect Pet hotel, we are so very grateful of how much care and attention he gave Buddy on his 2 night sleepover. I would highly recommend Barton Lodge Luxury Pet Hotel.

I left my two dogs for an over night stay at Barton Lodge and I would recommend it to all dog owners especially those owners who feel anxious leaving their dogs because they have their own special ways, I have a nervous 12 year old and a wild 11 month old, both Brittany Spaniels and Barton Lodge welcomed them with open arms and provided a superior and customer focused service you really won’t get anywhere else. The dogs live in luxury with large woodland area to roam free in as all grounds are secure and even with other dogs at the lodge you’d never know they were there, as the place was so quiet. For dog owners who love their pets this is the place where you can walk away knowing your pets have everything and more plus the video updates from Neil immediately puts your mind at ease. Having never left my dogs with anyone for 14 years as I never felt comfortable leaving them with anyone I left them at Barton Lodge knowing they were in safe and caring hands. It’s a 5 star hotel with 5 star service focused to the needs of each dog, providing all the cuddles and reassurance my 12 your old needed and all the exercise my 11 month old needed. It’s such a relief to now be able to go on holidays with no worries or concerns about how my dogs are being looked after, because I know they are having a fabulous time too.

My precious angels have just returned from a wonderful stay at the 5* Barton Lodge Luxury Pet Hotel. Without doubt the BEST animal boarding facility in the Midlands! So convenient, just off the M1 near East Midlands Airport ...... a true home-from-home approach and superb service from drop-off to collection! I think the dogs had a better holiday than I did! We will definitely be returning, as it’s such a relief to know that my dogs are getting complete love and care in my absence! They received plenty of exercise in the spectacular woodland grounds and lawns and it was wonderful to be able to see them everyday through the CCTV ..... Thank you again and see you again soon.

Our Dog Bali came to stay with Neil at Barton Lodge for just over a week. She was looked after like one of his own and she loved the woodland walks in the grounds. We had regular photos and videos in which she looked really happy and relaxed.

Thanks for looking after Elsie so well, she’s curled up happily in her bed having a snooze now after a busy weekend of playing. She certainly enjoyed all the whizzing around your fields, it’s just perfect for her. I’d happily recommend you!

Our choc lab has never been away from family overnight but for our wedding we needed somewhere that would be a home-from-home. The Barton Pet Hotel was brilliant - I had regular updates and after 2 nights collected a very happy dog. 100% recommend this place

What a fabulous place. We hired the secure field for our two small dogs and it was wonderful to see them enjoying running around and playing. Neil was very accommodating and we got to see one of the guest in their, I can only say penthouse suite, enjoying watching a film! We would definitely let our two stay there. Thank you.

Patient, Caring, Excellent, Understanding, Experienced, Unique…… Words that I associate with Barton Lodge Luxury Pet Hotel. In the first time in 5 years my partner and I went away without our dogs only because I discovered this gem of a place. During my look around and after speaking to Neil I knew my dogs would be well cared for and I was not disappointed but, Barton Lodge Luxury Hotel exceeded my expectations. My two very much-loved girls; a JRT (Poppy) and American Bull Dog (Clio) shared a lovely warm room, with a comfy bed and T.V. The room backed onto a beautiful paddock so they could ‘squirrel and bird watch’ at any time. They had regular walks and was monitored via installed cameras to ensure they both were settled/sleeping in between their walks and cuddles from Neil and his Partner. Clio is a rescue dog who was in kennels for several months before we adopted her so I knew staying away from home might be a challenge for her. I didn’t need to worry, Neil and his partner gave her extra reassurance and cuddles and soon, she settled just like her companion Poppy. Daily photographs and several videos were sent to me over the course of the week (optional). This Pet Hotel is a gem and I am currently focusing on booking my next holiday so I can book Poppy and Clio in for another stay or should I say Holiday because this is a holiday for them too. Thank you so much.

Archie really enjoyed his stay, Neil spent time with us on arrival to make sure he settled in and was really accommodating to our needs. Archie loved the large bed he had to sprawl out on and the report we got at the end of his stay was great! Will definitely go again 😊

My dogs have had a fabulous time – I honestly think they were slightly disappointed to be picked up and taken home. To see them that contented and happy away from home made me realise how important their happiness is to me whilst we are off on our travels. I would have no hesitation in recommending Barton Lodge. Safe, secure, 100% peace of mind

What a great find this is!! I have a very nervous rescue dog, who I don’t like leaving, as I haven’t found anywhere I was comfortable with to look after her. Until now, I received daily updates and photographs to reassure me. She was able to watch wildlife programmes on her own TV (she loves watching animals). I would totally recommend and will definitely use this hotel again. Thanks Neil for all you did to make a stress free holiday for all concerned.

I visited Barton Lodge luxury pet hotel whilst hunting for places to leave our two Bulldog puppies. After meeting Neil I immediately asked him where I needed to sign and booked them in straight away. It’s completely different to the other kennels I visited. Neil only has a small amount of dogs at any one time so he can devote his time to each dog. We received daily updates with pictures and videos which was really reassuring. The grounds are fabulous and the rooms the dogs stay in are amazing, flat screen TV’s, chandeliers and CCTV, plus the cosy cot beds that our dogs loved! (We are so buying one of those for home)! Neil is so friendly and welcoming and puts you at ease the minute you meet him. When I arrived to collect our pups they weren’t even interested in me but continued to follow Neil around the grounds. We will never use anywhere else for our pups and they are already booked in for our next holiday (and theirs). We have no hesitation in recommending Barton Lodge and if you want excellent quality care and reassurance for your dogs there’s no other place quite like this.
