Customer Testimonials

Over 30 years of service we have seen many faces and made many friends, here is what some of them have said about us.

I’m Barry, a 3 year old boxer, and my dad has asked me to write a review on here. I have been coming for my holidays since I was a puppy when I came with my big sister who is sadly no longer with us.

I always have a good time, I have a room with a country view, room service is excellent, my meals are very well prepared and always on time. I enjoy being taken out for long walks several times a day and socialising with other guests. All the staff are very friendly and can’t do enough for me.

I would highly recommend Deansford Hotel to any of my canine friends who want a break away from home to recharge the batteries.

Barry (AKA Andrew Greenwood)

We were really worried about leaving our rescue in kennels as she can get really nervous and she has separation anxiety, but Deansford have been excellent at accommodating her.

After the first few visits she has now realised what a wonderful holiday she can have with her human and doggie friends at Deansford. The staff are so friendly and helpful and really make you feel at ease leaving part of your family with them, the new facilities are brilliant and I wouldn’t leave Milly anywhere else! Thank you!

I just love these kennels. I have used them for years and years with previous dogs we’ve had. Now we use them for our 3 Rottweilers. Our 1st rotti Bess (who has since crossed to Rainbow bridge) went there, followed a year later with Tay as a puppy now we have 2 more Rotties, Gabbee and Blaze. When we drop them off, the dogs are excited to be there and they staff are pleased to see themtoo. My dogs just love it there and as they are like my children, so don’t let just anybody have them. I know they will be not just taken care of but loved as well. I would recommend Deansford kennels to anybody looking for kennels.

Our dog was settled and happy at Deansford. The staff were friendly and appeared to know our dog very well, with good feedback at collection. It was Diesel’s first visit there but we will definitely use Deansford again. Really pleased with the set up.

I’ve been using Deansford Kennels for about 6/7 years, with my previous dog who was getting old. I wished I had found Deansford years ago. Would not go anywhere else with my little Bertie and would recommend them to anybody.

Linda Holmes Green

Theo was a rescue dog and has always been very unsure of people he doesn’t know and takes months to trust people. He was never happy going to kennels but wow he loves coming to Deansford and wags his tail and happily runs off. Proves to us how well loved and looked after he is when he goes :). Thank you Deansford Kennels. We will be back again soon.

Samantha Smith

Thank you to all at Deansford for looking after Max last week whilst we were away. He’s never been in kennels before and seemed to have had an amazing time. So glad he was well behaved for you he obviously seemed to enjoy himself. he’s definitely chilled. Thanks again

When you have a dog you try to look for the best place for them to stop when you go away. Somewhere that’s like home and somewhere you know your dogs are going to be looked after well. I can only say we found Deansford Kennels to be that place. We have used them four years on the run and I can truly say both of our dogs have been looked after fantascially. I was a bit worried about putting our new dog in kennels but because our dogs cabn share a large kennel share, it made it a lot easier for him to settle. They get taken out on long walks, are fed properly and the staff are really helpful and passionate about the dogs. Thank so much for looking after our dogs and we will see you next year

Master, this is Thy Servant. He is rising eight weeks old.
He is mainly Head and Tummy. His legs are uncontrolled.
But Thou hast forgiven his ugliness, and settled him on Thy knee…
Art Thou content with Thy Servant? He is very comfy with Thee.
