Bring the dog

It's no secret that here at The Esplanade Hotel in Newquay that we love dogs! We realise that your dog is an important member of the family, and we know how hard it can be to leave your beloved four-legged friend at home when you set off for a family holiday in Cornwall. Which is why we welcome all well-behaved hounds…

Please let us know in advance if you would like to bring your pooch to our dog friendly hotel as we want them to feel right at home. We have a selection of dog friendly rooms, many with outside access for your convenience. We’ll provide a blanket and food/water bowl for their use during your stay.

For the comfort of other guests, we do not allow dogs in the restaurant and there’s a small charge of just £15 per dog per night.


The Equality Act 2010 requires that disabled people have the same rights to services such as accommodation, restaurants, and bars. Also we recognise that reasonable adjustments will be made in order to avoid discrimination against disabled people.

These reasonable adjustments will include and range from creating wheelchair access routes to modifying a “no dogs policy” so that a disabled person may be accompanied by their service or assistance dog.

We also understand that not all service or assistance dogs will carry charity registration papers by Assistance Dogs Uk (ADUK) as they may be self-trained.

In order to protect our guests and staff from dogs that are not trained to the required standards under the law, we will expect that the assistance dog will, as stated by The Equality and Human Rights Commission:

  • Be highly trained.
  • Will not wander freely around the premises.
  • Will sit or lie quietly on the floor next to its owner.
  • Are trained to go to the toilet on command and so are unlikely to foul in a public place.
  • Be recognisable by the harness or identifying dog jacket, although not in all cases.

We recognise that all disabilities are not visible. While we recognise the positive impact an emotional support animal (ESA) has on its owner, however we also have a duty of care to our guests and staff.

As ESAs are not always trained to the required safety standards of an assistance/ service dog, we are afraid we do not allow them into our restaurants and will be limited to our “Pet Friendly” accommodation.
