James Lys, General Manager of Mercure Stratford-upon-Avon, explained:

“Our pets are a huge part of our lives and can make our day-to-day lives richer than it would be without them.

“We have noticed a marked increase in guests who bring their pets, specifically their dogs, travelling with them to share in the experience.”

Lys likewise said about their services:

“We take time to get to know our guests and understand their needs so we can try and deliver personal and meaningful experiences.

“Being able to bring your dog when you’re away makes all the difference to some of our guests, so that’s why Mercure hotels across the country now welcome dogs.

“We’ll create special menus and treats for guests’ dogs and our hotel teams have even been known to walk the dogs when their owners couldn’t.

“It’s important to our guests so it’s important to us.”
