5 pet friendly hotels in Malta & Gozo you & your pooch (or kitty) will LOVE
Even your pets need a time out!

Kristina Cassar Dowling

Taking a break from the mundane is sometimes needed, and usually well-deserved. But for most pet owners in Malta and Gozo, leaving poor Fido at home may put them off hitting the hotel buffet. Fear not… there’s hope for those craving an escape from the everyday! Here are the top 5 hotels across the islands which understand your pet’s weekend-break needs.

The Hilton Malta, St Julian’s

The Hilton is situated in St Julian’s, in the heart of Malta’s entertainment centre, where pubs, bars, restaurants and other necessary amenities are open until the wee hours, making this the perfect spot for you and your pet to enjoy the freedom of a night on the town!

Corinthia Palace Hotel and Spa, Attard

The Corinthia in Attard is pet friendly too - probably one of Malta’s most beautiful hotels ensconced in a gorgeous setting and one your dog, or maybe even your cat, could appreciate from the inside and out. Relax by the pool, if it’s a nice day, or kick back in your room and get ready for a puppy pamper session.

Hotel Phoenicia, Valletta

Another pet friendly hotel… and what a hotel it is! The Phoenicia is located just outside the capital of Valletta, a stunning city of baroque architecture and modern culture. Calling Valletta home for the weekend give you the time to wander through the streets and discover the cute bistros along the lanes, with man’s best friend close by your side of course.

Gillieru Harbour Hotel, St Paul’s Bay

The Gillieru is the perfect pet hotel due to the picturesque bay which dominates the view of this newly refurbished outfit. Take your pooch for a swim in the shallows or get your cat a sea-view room to watch the gulls fly by. You won’t be disappointed when you see their happy little faces enjoying the luxury of this northern spot.
