Dog Friendly Hotels in Exeter
The Editor Says: To be honest, I really don’t know that much about the Exeter area. I think we’ve driven through it a couple of times with me in the back feeling like I’m going to barf, and my mum (human not biological, obviously) keeps telling us that she used to work there and how nice it is. Mind you, I have heard there’s some grand walks not far from the city at place like Haldon Hill Forest Park to the south east (wherever that is). Probably best ask the people at the hotels when you get there for things to do with dogs nearby, because frankly I haven’t got a Scooby Doo.
Booking Online: Making a reservation with Booking.com or LateRooms.com is easy and convenient. When doing so it is important that you make clear your intention to bring your dog in the “special requests” box so that the hotel or inn is made aware in advance. Please note that our “Paws Policy” information is for approximate guidance only and that the hotel, inn or bed and breakfast’s actual policies may change at any time and/or be more comprehensive. We play no part in the actual booking process.
