There's something special about the moment your beloved pooch senses an adventure is about to unfold. The tail goes into overdrive, the ears perk up, and the leaping around your packed suitcase begins. At The Waterloo Hotel, nestled in the heart of Betws-y-Coed, they understand that feeling all too well—because there, every day is an adventure, especially when your four-legged friends are involved.

It was just last autumn when I realised how truly 'dog-friendly' this place is. My dog, Benny, is not just a pet; he's a full-fledged member of the family. So, naturally, when I was planning a getaway to Snowdonia, leaving him behind was not an option. That's when I stumbled upon The Waterloo Hotel—a place where the welcome mat is as much for paws as it is for boots.

Dog Friendly Accommodation

From the get-go, The Waterloo Hotel sets the stage for a pooch's paradise. The dedicated dog-friendly lodges with private terraces meant Benny could bask in the morning sun as I sipped on my freshly brewed coffee, planning our route through the Gwydir Forest. 

Every staff member we met greeted Benny with smiles and treats. It’s this level of dog-friendly hospitality that sets The Waterloo Hotel apart. It makes you feel like your pet is as valued a guest as you are. Our evening visits to Bar1815 were a highlight, with Benny getting his own bowl of water and his choice of snacks from the doggy menu - a pawsonal favourite! Watching pets being so well catered to while their owners relax is a testament to the hotel’s commitment to ensuring a joyful stay for everyone.

Pawsome Amenities

The doggy wash station is a lifesaver! Let's be honest, exploring means getting dirty—a badge of a day well spent, and Benny never misses an opportunity to prove that. Returning to the hotel, a quick rinse at the doggy wash had him looking (and smelling) guest-ready again.

Special Treats

Taking advantage of the special offer for dogs was a no-brainer. With the promo code DOGFREE, Benny stayed for free, saving me some pounds and making our trip even sweeter. Don’t forget to ask for the special treats for your furry friends; they deserve a bit of holiday pampering too!

The End of our Trip

As Benny and I packed up to leave, I found myself scrolling through photos of our adventures and the peaceful moments in between. The Waterloo Hotel provided us with more than just a dog-friendly stay; it gave us a countless moments, laughs, and contented sighs. It's a unique place where the joy of your pet is intertwined with the beauty of your surroundings, creating the perfect holiday harmony.

So, if you're looking for a getaway that truly welcomes you and your four-legged companion with open arms, The Waterloo Hotel in Betws-y-Coed is the perfect place. There, every dog can have its day, and trust me, it will be an unforgettable one, or two, or three, or more.
