We love taking our dogs away, having them with us is part of the enjoyment. Finding a hotel that accommodates and welcomes your pet and provides a relaxing environment close to walks and local countryside is so important.

At BEST WESTERN Salford Hall Hotel we want you and your dog(s) to want to visit us again. We’ve thought about how we can make you and your dog’s stay comfortable and relaxing and considered what you might need as a dog owner. 

There is limited availability so please contact reception for more information. We do have a couple of small conditions for bringing your dog to our hotel as follows:

  • A maximum of two small dogs or one large dog is allowed in your bedroom
  • Guide dogs are allowed in all hotels and throughout the hotel free of charge, including the restaurant.
  • Other dogs are only allowed in public areas for access and not allowed in any restaurants.
  • We welcome well-behaved and trained dogs and if we feel that your pet is causing a nuisance to other guests or barking incessantly during the stay, we will ask you to leave.

“William Shakespeare (1564-1616) is believed to have been a regular visitor to Bidford-on-Avon. The former 13th Century Falcon Inn, opposite the church, was one of his favourite taverns. He reputedly got drunk at the inn and slept it off under a crab apple tree on his way back to his home in Stratford-upon-Avon. He recounts his drinking exploits in the local villages in a rhyme that finishes `… Papish Wicksford, Beggarly Broom and Drunken Bidford`. Sadly, the old inn fell into disrepair and was subsequently renovated and turned into flats some years ago. The crabb apple tree has long disappeared.”

Alcester “Alcester is one of the most delightful towns in Warwickshire. This former Roman settlement has sadly lost its ancient abbey, but the abbots splendid ivory crozier, which was discovered in the rectory garden, is now displayed in the British Museum. From time to time new Roman relics also come to light, such as the Roman milestone commemorating the Emperor Constantine (AD 306-337), which was excavated in the town in 1966. The Romano-British town which flourished between the 2nd and 4th centuries AD, covered some 35 acres (14ha), and is now completely covered by the modern town.”
