When it comes to your four legged friends, we want your pets to enjoy their stay regardless of the season.

Making your pets feel at home and providing premium care for your pets is something Lochinvar Pet Motel is renown for and our clients tell us it's all the little things we do that makes a different for their pets, we happily go that extra step.

Some of our clients feel more comfortable with their pets having their own belongings, and we're happy for you to bring in things such as your pet's comforters; their own toys, bedding and snuggly pj's or a jacket. Each night, Our staff happily take the time to put your pet in their pj's / jacket before tucking them into bed at night, and take them off again of a morning.

We also have heated flooring in some of our kennel facilities and reverse cycle air conditioning for our feline guests, which helps your pets adapt and enjoy the niceties as they would at home.

We understand that your pet is an important member of your family and we treat them like they are part of our own when they stay with us here at Lochinvar Pet Motel.

If you're thinking about going away or perhaps your pet is a little lonely, why not book them in for their own holiday or doggie daycare by booking online or giving us a call - 0249307612

Sybil the kitten came to stay at the Lochinvar Pet Motel Cattery

Sybil the kitten came to stay at the Lochinvar Pet Motel Cattery

This afternoon (8/5/2014), Owner Lauren (pictured above) came to pick up her curious little kitten Sybil from her temporary  holiday home - Lochinvar Pet Motel Cattery

Sybil  is a 4 months old Tortoise Shell Kitten who was previously a rescue kitten. For Sybil, this was her first stay with LPM, she enjoyed her indoor outdoor area, with shelves for climbing, a chair for basking in the sun, and  enjoying  the view whilst enjoying climbing and exploring her suite.

On pick up time, this cute little rescue kitten, who has been given a new life, acknowledged of her families arrival, and started rubbing herself up against the side of her enclosure, brushing herself affectionallty along the ready waiting little hands looking forward to taking her home.

After a few happy snaps, Sybil was safe and secure in his Kitten Carrier and ready to head home and enjoying the perks of being a very loved member of her new family.

When asked, what did owner Lauren have to say about Lochivar Pet Motel?
"[Lochinvar Pet Motel] would have to be the best run Kennel I've ever used. The staff are friendly and professional, with no request to hard to accommodate for.  Originally we boarded our dogs here, and they've been coming here since they were puppies; The dog kennels are clean, the runs are huge and I love it here! I recommend this place to everyone! This is a first time for Sybil, she'll be back again, Somehow though, I think she thinks she's just another one of the dogs! Thanks for everything LPM"
