Take your pet on holiday

HotelsCombined has listed the top properties where the pets are as well looked after as their owners.

The Langham, Sydney

This 5-star hotel has a Pampered Pets Program which includes pet room service. Dishes include Lassie's Favourite made of beef steak and chunky vegetables. For cats there is Meow Meow which contains grilled salmon, quail egg, tuna, potatoes and olives – the feline version of a tuna nicoise salad. Pets also receive a plush bed, food and water bowls, treats as well as pet-sitting and walking services.

The Albany Motel, Melbourne

This property welcomes pets and is located across from a park, so there's no excuse not to take Fido for a morning and evening walk. The room has wooden floors in case of accidents as well as on-site parking for pick-up and drop-off.

Cooroy Country Cottages, Noosa

These cottages allow dogs inside as well as outside enclosures in the cottage veranda or a walled courtyard. Special pet towels are on hand in case your canine ends up on the property's creek.

Barrum River Retreat, Apollo Bay

Pets have a bed, food and water bowls as well as a secure backyard at this riverside property. There is also a list of dog walking trails nearby which the owners can recommend.

Gold Coast Holiday Park, QLD

There's a resident schnauzer at this property called Sammie – an instant friend for your canine. The cabin, camping and campervan sites here are dog-friendly and being located on 32 acres, there's plenty of room to roam.

The Hughenden Boutique Hotel, Woollahra

This Sydney hotel has had all types of animal guests – even a baby kangaroo. The hotel accommodates for pet sitting, dog walking and trips to the Doggy Day Spa and your pup can even join you for breakfast.
