The following testimonials have been received by Ledbury Lodge Kennels from satisfied clients and can be made available to all prospective and existing clients to be read in full upon request.

My name is Ruby I am a three year old Golden Retriever, I am a regular visitor to Ledbury Lodge as my parents seem to go away a lot. It’s a great place to stay, warm, comfortable, clean, good food, peaceful most of the time. Ben, Nikki and the boys are great and we have lots of fun. I have made many friends on my visits and we often go into Ledbury on a Saturday night for a few jars!! and just get back in time before we are missed!!

Well that’s my view now over to Mum……….

I would highly recommend Ledbury Lodge Kennels it is well run, very professional and Ben & Nikki are very accommodating to the needs of the dogs. Ruby has a wonderful time there and is always keen to return……….

I am nearly six years old and I have experienced several Dog Hotels in Herefordshire and Gloucestershire.
Until my Master and Mrs brought me to Ledbury Lodge I would not have awarded any of those Dog Hotels more than 3* and one of them didn’t deserve more than 2*.
The Ledbury Lodge Dog Hotel is a 5* establishment and I hear that Monsieur Michelin will shortly include it in his guide. I am always given my favourite food and the service is excellent. I am always given a room in the sun – which I love – and lots of chewies and runs. The Manager and Manageress are charming and very kind and I am never short of cuddles.
I have sent two of my best friends (Tommy Haden and Benji Grant-Duff) and they are always thanking me for recommending your dog hotel to them

Ledbury Lodge is an excellent Dog Hotel in every respect and I cannot recommend it too highly.

Dear Ben and Nikki

Having been dog owners for some twenty years we had always been able to rely on friends and family to take care of our pets.

In 2009 we needed to find someone to care for our “boys” and checked out Ledbury Lodge Kennels.

From the start we were impressed by the calm professionalism of Ben and Nikki. Our tour of the kennels showed excellent high standards and the happiness of every guest was clearly evident.

We booked our boys, Monty (then 7 months old) and Buster in for a week in September 2009.
When we came to collect them, they were happy, well cared for and had clearly built a friendship with Ben, Nikki and their (human) boys.

Buster and Monty have returned for “holidays” since then and we will continue to board them at Ledbury for the foreseeable future as our boys always come home happy and healthy.

Hello Nikki, Ben and Boys,

I have eventually got the hang of this computer. Wanted to thank you for making my stay go so well with you, didn’t think I would enjoy a holiday so much. I have never been in a kennels before moving to Herefordshire in my old age. Having always been with a young family I am now with a couple who are the late generation like myself. It was wonderful being around youngsters again. I was very worried about coming in for a month but no problems accommodation and food first class a Michelin star I would say. You all made my stay so good I didn’t know whether to stay on or go home when my owners came. I am now looking forward to seeing you all again in a couple of weeks time. Some would say its a lovely life getting older and in some ways I would agree because I am so lucky my owners have found you all. Even had other pointers there for company some of them did whine a little of but that’s to be expected with our breed well known for all sorts of noises. Nikki has become my foster mum and many thanks for that as you are one of the best. My best wishes to you all.

Lots of Licks

Hello to you all, its Lucy and Lola here,

Mom said we had to write you a note to say thank you for looking after us so well when she went enjoying herself in Malta. We know she was worried about leaving us (we are quite spoilt) as it was our first time in kennels. To be honest we were a little unsure about it all. But hey, its like a health farm for dogs. We came home so much fitter and we had loads of cuddles. Looking forward to our next stay with you, already booked, as moms off for more sunshine. She says to say hi and sends her love and thanks and apologises for not making us do this sooner.

So any of you moms or dads out there looking for kennels to leave the most important member of your family, go to Ledbury Lodge and say the girls sent you!

Lucy and Lola
