Coming soon……


As some of you may know we have a sister kennel in Geelong called ‘Elcho Park Pet Hotel’. As of next month we will be joining the two businesses to offer all our clients more choice in industry leading accommodation and care for your pets.

From the middle of May, Elcho Park Pet Hotel will now be known as ‘The Pets Hotel Country Club’.  This expansion of The Pets Hotel brand will provide our customers with the choice of a country escape or the luxury and convenience of the Melbourne CBD. It also means you can use both Pet Hotel’s as a drop-off point for the other; opening up the luxury of The Pets Hotel to our Geelong customers as well as bringing the country to our Melbourne city dwellers.

The Pets Hotel Country Club is a perfect destination for those pets who enjoy the great outdoors; grass, trees, birds and open spaces are in abundance. This partnership will also incorporate a refurbishment of the Geelong facility in the coming months. 

The Pets Hotel is still a family business with Lauren Hill (daughter of Alan and Yvonne Hill – co-owners of The Pets Hotel) as CEO of the Geelong facility.  We can’t wait to open our home to you!
We will be launching an extended web site in May and you will be able to meet some of The Pets Hotel Country Club team at the Geelong Million Paws Walk!

Landing on all fours is something typical to cats thanks to the help of their eyes and special balance organs in their inner ear. These tools help them straighten themselves in the air and land upright on the ground.

Before she heads out to qualify for Rio, Kristy and other young hopefuls for the Australian team will have a intense training schedule. Beginning in Canberra these coming 2 weeks, and then off to the Philippines to really tighten up for the competition.

We can’t wait to cheer her on in the qualifying rounds and know she has it in her to go all the way!
