For many of us, pets are part of the family, so of course we love to include our favourite four legged companions when planning for a family holiday.

The very thought of booking our fury friends into the kennel or cattery can be quite upsetting, even more so when the time comes to drop them off and try to say goodbye. Best to avoid any distress and bring your pets along with you for a holiday at the Bay Hotel Motel.

The Motel offers pet friendly accomodation in beautiful Lake Macquarie. Situated in Bonnells Bay, the motel has a large grassed area that can be enjoyed by everyone, including dogs on leashes. There are also plenty of parklands and walking trails in the region which makes it a great destination for those with active pets that love to walk, run or fetch.

Bringing the whole family along, including the pet, means that everyone, and every-animal, can genuinely enjoy their holiday. A holiday without any of the distress caused by separating and leaving somebody behind. Not to mention the high cost of boarding for the animals.

Over the years, we have found that most people travelling with their pets have been very much respectful and courteous. To organise to bring your pet along for your holiday, you simply need to notify motel reception before you arrive and pay a $25 cleaning fee, which is payable directly to reception on your arrival.

When the time comes to take that trip along the M1 remember that spending too much time travelling without breaks may cause your animals to become agitated or stressed. When traveling by road, plenty of water and sufficient breaks for relief and reprieve are a must.

Wishing you all safe travels, see you in Beautiful Lake Macquarie on your next pet friendly family holiday.
