Chubbs and I caught the Northern line over to Old Street and jumped on the 55 bus over to Mama Shelter London in Bethnal Green.
I was happy to be back in my old neighborhood and excited to be back in the east end for a night. Walking up to Mama Shelter, the building lined with lots of plants and contrasting brick walls, it was clear that I was going to get the hipster vibes I had missed since moving to North West London!
As soon as you walk into Mama Shelter, you are welcomed with vibrancy and quirkiness that made me happy. Lots of colours and smiling faces from the reception team. Chubbs and I immediately felt welcome.
Many eye-catching furniture, plants, and areas within the hotel to explore; the whole place is warm and personable.
The staff is great and absolutely love dogs; I suspect loving dogs is a requirement when working for Mama Shelter London. The staff’s uniforms are modern and informal, adding to the overall home from home feeling; the staff was accommodating and always made sure Chubbs was looked after as much as I was.
The room reminded me of a cute cabin; the quirkiness continues in the room with a personalized message on the mirror and some treats for me and chubbs on the desk; we were both thrilled. The room wasn’t massive but big enough for a cute Dogcation.
I loved the TV’s entertainment with all the movies, I wasn’t expecting that, so it was a nice surprise. We had all the home comforts, which was perfect, and an in-room dog bed too. Although getting Chubbs not to sleep on the bed is quite the challenge!
The food menu had a great selection to choose from, plenty of comfort food options, and healthy ones. I went for the Cauliflower and Potato Samosas with a date and tamarind Chutney and Tonkatsu Tuna bowl. Both were very good, and as a non-drinker, I was impressed with the mocktail selection, which was well thought out and not the run of the mill selection of drinks. We opted to have our meal in the greenhouse, and it was a great area to have dinner, a quieter area, and lots of space for Chubbs to stretch out. Also, we wanted to eat our desserts in bed, and the staff arranged our sweet-toothed bedtime treat (Chubbs had an organic dog biscuit!)
Hands down one of the most dog-friendly hotels in London. Dogs are embraced, loved, and adored at Mama Shelter, London. Dog bowls are the norm and not afterthought! There are size guidelines for dogs that can stay(12kg maximum dog size), however, if your dog has put on a little lockdown weight, I’m sure they will be more than happy to accommodate!
