A Special Guest...Or Three!

We’re proud to welcome well-behaved dogs to Holbeck Ghyll – which was something of a relief for Chihuahua Maximus, who joined his owner, Olympic medallist Pete Reed, for some downtime at the hotel in September.

MBE Pete, who won gold in the men’s coxless four at the London Olympics this summer, visited the hotel with his girlfriend Frauke to celebrate getting engaged at the closing ceremony of the games.

We’re not sure who staff enjoyed having here the most – all three were charming!

If you too would like to bring your hound to Holbeck Ghyll, we welcome guests of the four-legged variety in a number of bedrooms and suites – just mention your intention when you book.


For the most pampered of pooches, an elegant accessory set, courtesy of London’s Mungo & Maud, is also available and includes an elegant collar and lead, sumptuous bed, water bowl and organic treats.
